Engraving is the ultimate way to personalize your wedding ring. Here’s why;
The custom of inscribing romantic poetry onto wedding rings began in the courts of medieval Europe. Today, engraving a message on the inside of the ring or even around the perimeter of the stone is one of the easiest ways to personalize an engagement ring on your wedding bands.
Although it is not common practice in these parts, but then, you want to have a memorable wedding? Why not #GoUnique!
The following are some popular and sentimental wedding ring engraving ideas, the most popular one being the first:
I LOVE YOU!
Our love is eternal
To my soul mate
Always, Forever, Eternity!
I wed thee
All my love
I marry you
You have my heart
My heart is in your hands
Never to part
To my wife/husband
Soul mates forever
I’m always with you
To have and to hold
Here is my heart; guard it well!
No one but you
God hath provided thee for me
God unite both in love
In thy breast my heart doth rest

Engraving can be done as quickly as a wait-and-get, or it could take up to months. The best thing is to ask your jeweler how long yours will take and plan ahead. If the jeweler can’t do it, he should be able to refer you to an engraver. You may want to double-check the spelling of the requested inscription before you pass it on to the engraver, and check it again when you receive it. Do these and you are good to go.
