Welcome to John W. Thompson & Son

Bringing art and sophistication together…

At John W. Thompson & Son located in Sydney CBD we have been custom designing and handcrafting wedding rings, engagement rings and signet rings for over 50 years. We also hand make personalised cufflinks for those special occasions. At John W. Thompson & Son we are artisan engravers that pride ourselves on sophistication, craftsmanship and artistry of the finest quality. Whether you are hand engraving a personal message into your engagement, wedding or signet ring, or if you are personalising your cufflinks, hand engraving can be a unique addition to your precious piece. The history of hand engraving dates back to the Middle Ages and at John W. Thompson & Son we still maintain the traditional practices that were used in the past.

Custom signet rings for your seals, crests and coat of arms…

We can custom design and handcraft signet rings for your family seals, crests and coat of arms. Seals have been used throughout history to show personal imprints, act as markings of authenticity and bounding agreements and edicts. Although rarely used today for impressing wax onto a document, seals are still very popular and a great way to cherish your family name.

At John W. Thompson & Son we can handcraft your signet ring with the following precious metals:

  • Platinum
  • Yellow Gold
  • White Gold
  • Rose Gold

We use the traditional method of seal engraving to create the very best results. We have crafted a hand engraved signet ring for the Prince of Wales and also enjoy the patronage of many high profile Australians. All of our clients have one thing in common – they care about quality, beauty and craftsmanship.
