know of someone who hand engraves
T.S. Buchanan, in or around Charlotte, NC. 704-568-3737.
He’s the dad of a former coworker of mine, and has been a
professional engraver forever. Over ten years ago I saw a ring
engraved with a face in profile. It was so minute you really had to
use a loupe to appreciate the detail! I’ve spoken with him briefly in
the recent past, and he was very receptive to taking on custom work.
Probably quite reasonable compared with some of the more well known
engravers, although I haven’t asked. Standard disclaimer: I have
never had any work done by him, but have seen his work.
All the best,
