    Looking at it from a non engraver and non jeweler but business standpoint.
    1) You must know the Jewelry business or they wouldn't let you take over the store and you must be good at it for the same reason.
    2) it's an established business so there is ongoing income.
    3) you like engraving but you know little about the potential based on your questions.

    If it were me, I'd go for the Jewelry business because it seems like a great opportunity and it is what You know. At the same time I would develop my engraving skills and take classes as i could and develop the engraving business and reputation. It seems to me that the engraving and Jewelry businesses are very complementry and there is no reason that you can't do both and make a natural transition as you develop your engraving reputation.

    But that's me, I'm the one that values security but will take risks where it makes sense and is what I like. You are the one that has to decide what you will do and have to accept the results of your decisions. You are young and have plenty of time to learn.

    Good luck whatever you decide.
