Engravable Solid Brass Bells

Frequently Asked Questions about Brass Bells

What are school bells made of?

Our school bells are made of traditional materials.  They handle is made of solid wood and the bell itself is made from solid brass.  This produces a high quality, rich sound when struck with the dinger inside.

Which size of brass bell is most popular?

The 7.5″ tall SB7 brass hand bell is by far our most popular brass bell.  It’s size resembles that of the traditional school bells.  It produces a rich tone and has a good amount of engravable space.

How do you engrave a brass bell?

Brass bells are diamond engraved.  This produces a very traditional type of engraving, much like that you would see engraved on an antique bell.  The bells are machine engraved using a rotary engraver.

What are Brass Bells used for?

Brass Bells are given mostly as teacher appreciation gifts or as retirement gifts for teachers & other faculty members.  When the bells are engraved with a teacher’s name and years of service, these hand bells become truly one of a kind.  With a brass hand bell being one of the earliest symbols for school teachers, it makes the perfect gift – and allows retiring teachers the opportunity to reminisce.

Gem Awards Believes in Free Engraving & Additional Options

There are very few products where we charge for engraving, this is because we believe in being upfront with our customers about our prices.  We don’t like to trick anyone into shopping with us.  We started out by selling only engraved brass bells and started to get many requests for bells without engraving.  In order to be fair to our customers we decided to price the bells without engraving and then include engraving as an additional option.  We guarantee these are still the most inexpensive engraved bells you will find anywhere!  If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
