The inscription is a message that will be with you for life, so making it meaningful is essential.
In this article, we will share some tips on how to make your wedding ring inscription truly special. Whether you want to go traditional or get creative, we’ve got you covered.
So, if you’re getting ready to tie the knot and want to make sure your wedding ring inscription stands out, keep reading!
Significance of Wedding Ring Inscriptions
Some couples decide to have a part of their wedding vows engraved on their wedding rings. Another popular idea is to incorporate something from the wedding theme (if you had one). The name of the resort or town where you are honeymooning, perhaps? Your pet names for each other, or even the name of the restaurant for your first date.
The engraved wedding band is not just limited to words on the inner side of the band. Some couples elect to have longer inscriptions on the edge of their band or on the outer side (this would have to be re-engraved as the ring wore down). Some specialized jewellers are even engraving inscriptions on diamonds. These are not usually obvious to the naked eye and are more costly, but they do allow for the identification of your stone if it is ever stolen.
Check on the time frame for the engraving to be done. This can vary from one day to a month. Prices can fluctuate between $1 per letter to almost $10 depending on whether the engraving is done by hand or machine and the degree of embellishment you require. It is also probably a great idea if you are able to see any of the jeweller’s other engraving handiwork. If your jeweller seems hesitant or disinterested, find another who does specialize in wedding band engraving.
Your inscriptions will be on your wedding rings forever. If the words are on the inside, none else will generally be reading them, allowing for a little more privacy. However, if you opt for an external wedding ring inscription, you will need to remember that others will also be able to read it. Your pet nicknames may not look like such a great idea in another 20 or 30 years.
