Engraving your wedding ring is a great way to ensure that the message you have for your loved one remains permanent. There are many engraving ideas that you can go with. The most common ones are:
Initials, Dates And Names
You can engrave the name of your loved one or both of your names in the ring. For example, you can include a combination such as: WX+JH. Another option is to include both your initials and date that you did your wedding. For example, you can write W+J 6/7/2015. If you don’t want to engrave your wedding date you can engrave the date you met or the date when you made a great milestone in your dating life.
Do you have a favorite quote that you share a lot? You can have a quote such as “We are forever.” For the quote to fit your wedding ring you should ensure that it’s not too long.
The cool thing with quotes is that you don’t have to restrict yourself to quotes that you understand-you can also use those that are in a foreign language. For example, if you have a language that has a special meaning to both of you, you should consider having it on your wedding ring. A great Latin quote you can go for is “Nunc scio quid sit amor.” This quote translates to “Now I know what love is.”
Do you have a symbol that you adore? You should consider engraving it in your ring. The symbol can be a heart, cross, animal or automobile. For a perfect look, you should ensure that your ring is large enough for the symbol to fit perfectly. You should also ensure that a professional does the engraving.
Tips To Consider When Engraving Your Ring
You should note that the engraving process takes time; therefore, you should be patient when you place an order. When giving instructions to the engraver, you should be very specific to ensure that the professional gives you the exact thing that you are looking for.
While engraving is a great process, not every ring can be engraved. For example, it’s almost impossible to engrave a ring that is very thin. It’s also impossible to engrave a highly contoured ring.
Since you can’t remove the words in the ring, you should think very hard before you have the words engraved in your ring. You should ask yourself whether you will still like the engraved words when you are 80 years old.
