Over the weekend, my younger sister gave me a gift...
Well, that's not the point. The point is, she did not engrave it and wanted me to engrave it myself with whatever text I wanted. I brought it down to Cards 'N' Such at Jurong Point yesterday which I have previously got the lady to engrave a Cross pen as a birthday pressie. When I took out the case, she asked if it was a piece of jewellery that I wanted to engrave. I said no and pull out the pen.
She took the pen, looked at it for a couple of seconds before saying she is not willing to do it. I asked why and her explanation was that she has never engraved on such a pen and is not confident of the engravement in fear that the engravement might scratch and peel the remaining surface of the pen.
My question to those who have bought from Tiffany & Co. is, will they do the engravement for me if I take it back to the store? My sister no longer have the receipt though. I am willing to pay of course.
I have been to an engraving store which I have done engraving before but was told that they are not confident to do a good job on such a pen so i am thinking of taking it back to tiffany & co. to have it done instead.
Hello! I've bought a similar pen from Tiffany's and asked to send it for engraving before. The lady at Tiffany's said that due to the curved nature of the pen, they couldn't do the engraving for me... (btw, they usually send it to their factory to do the engraving process also, takes around a week to process)
Um, as for the cost, I sent a money clip for engraving also and it's about $50 but they do an awesome job and it looks great. Can also choose from a wide list of designs also haha.
OMG, now I know what I lost from the box! I lost a freakin' Tiffany pen! I've had the box and pouch for ages but couldn't remember what was in it! Oh man. I totally wasted it. :( Your's looks awesome though!
woah! you're a student who used to own a tiffany pen? and you said you're on a budget (you asked if you can get your foundation shade matched at MAC without buying anything coz you're on a budget as a student). hehehe
Hahahahah! It was a gift that I stashed somewhere, I think it was like 5 years back or so, and recently dug it out, then I saw your post and I was all omg. Am I posting too frequently? You remember me! :)
