Engraving your wedding rings, it is often seen as a habit. But why do this at all? And what should you pay attention to? And what do you choose for text? All these questions often crop up when looking for the perfect wedding ring. We tell you all about engraving your ring in this blog!
Engraving your ring, what does it actually add? Engraving is the ultimate way to personalise your wedding ring. Besides choosing rings that suit you, you can make these rings extra personal by having a special text engraved on them. You will always carry this text close to you. Should you ever (hopefully never!) lose your ring somewhere, this inscription also gives you a slightly better chance of finding it again: because maybe the finder happens to know whose ring it is, or maybe the finder shares his find on Facebook You never know!
Before brainstorming and deciding on a text, it is important to ask your jeweller what the restrictions are for engraving. After all, you might choose the perfect phrase full of conviction, and then find out that this phrase does not fit into your beautiful rings. And of course, we don't want that. If you order your ring from DiamondsByMe, you have 10 characters for a text! It is also wise to talk to your partner about engraving first. Maybe you both have completely different ideas about it. Some couples keep their engravings a secret from each other, just like their vows. In this case, however, it is important that you have clearly agreed that you will both actually have a ring engraved, otherwise someone will be disappointed at the moment suprême. And then there's the font! Ask your jeweller what the options are for this. At DiamondsByMe, we can also incorporate your own handwriting into the ring! This of course makes the engraving even more personal.
But what will you actually have engraved into it? Because this text is something for ALWAYS, so this is something you will have to think about carefully. To help you, we will give you several ideas for inspiration! But always keep in mind: keep it SHORT & SIMPLE. Texts that are too long will not fit or will be difficult to read!
The wedding date
Most couples choose to engrave their wedding date. This is therefore a logical choice as this 'text' represents the day the rings were exchanged and love was sealed with it.
Names or Initials
Name engraving is also popular! Engraving your initials or names is a classic as it is a simple but beautiful way to make wedding rings extra personal. It is also reminiscent of the old custom of scratching names into a tree as a couple in love! All romance right?
A personal sentence
Another option for engraving is to use a saying or a quote. Every couple has special phrases or jokes that they only share and/or use with each other. Such a phrase can represent what makes your relationship so special, and is therefore also a fun and less traditional text to have your rings engraved with.
Promise or vow
Another original subject for a text could be a promise to each other. This promise can also be part of your vows. Thus, it is a mini love letter on your finger. So in this case, you should have these rings engraved separately from each other so that this remains a secret until the wedding ceremony.
At DiamondsByMe, you can completely design your own ring yourself. This includes the option to design a ring with a text or drawing on the outside. This text can be exactly as you wish, provided it fits on the ring, of course. Besides a text, even your heartbeat can be incorporated in the rings. Nowadays, you can use various apps to record your heartbeat, which we will then incorporate into your ring! Would you like to combine the heartbeat and your text? That's possible too!
A final option is the most personal of all. You can order your wedding ring with each other's fingerprint on it. This fingerprint can be incorporated in different ways, whether you like it subtle or want it to stand out. A wedding ring literally and figuratively cannot have a more personal 'touch'. And then you can even have it engraved with your initials, vows or wedding date!
Whatever you choose, choosing and having wedding rings engraved is very personal and something between you and your partner! Check out all wedding rings and sets on DiamondsByMe. Do you have another idea in mind to make your wedding rings extra personal? Let us know!
