Innovation In Colour

Explore how a luscious rainforest has led Holland & Holland to adopt an innovative technique, allowing clients of the ‘Royal’ portfolio to incorporate colourful details into their exquisite engravings.

We are delighted to announce a new, bespoke offering for clients of the ‘Royal’ portfolio. For the first time in our history, colour is introduced to enhance the storytelling ability of our intricately detailed engravings.

An American client requested her engraved rainforest scene be brought to life in colour. Holland & Holland duly obliged, turning to the jewellery and watchmaking industries to seek a solution that surpassed the industry norm of enamelling. Here we uncovered a durable technique that could be shaded and blended for greater artistic accuracy.

The medical-grade resin compound with organic colour pigmentation brings life to the client’s spirited vision. A striking red, green and yellow parrot, a scarlet coiled snake, colourful beetles, tree frogs and butterflies, together create a unique and flamboyant jungle scene.

Clients of the company’s flagship 'Royal' models can now commission colourful works of engraved art through our specialist sales team, located in our London, Northwood and Dallas Gunrooms. Clients may choose from an extensive colour palette, or if so desired, a bespoke colour-matching service can be arranged.
