Engraving is the perfect way to make your ring entirely unique. It’s a timeless practice that shows no wavering in popularity.

Traditional Engraving

There is something special about tradition, especially when it comes to weddings. If you want to keep it classic, there are a lot of great options that have been traditionally used over the years. These include:

  • The date of your wedding
  • The date you met
  • Your initials
  • Nicknames you have for one another
  • Snippets of vows: “Till death do us part,” “To have and to hold,” “I do,” or “From this day forward” 
  • “I love you” (either in English or in a language special to you both)
  • “Always”
  • Song Lyrics
  • Meaningful geographical coordinates
  • “Truly, madly, deeply” 
  • Eternity Symbol

Religious Engravings

Another popular theme for wedding band engravings is tying it to the religious aspect of marriage. If your faith is important for you and your spouse, you can incorporate your love for each other and your faith through your engravings. Ideas include:

  • Bible verses 
  • “Love is patient, love is kind”
  • “Love is faithful”
  • “Joined under God”

Funny Engravings

You don’t have to keep it traditional, or even serious, if you don’t want to. If your relationship is light and full of laughter, your engraving can be as well. Couples who love sharing a laugh will love using their engravings as a reminder to laugh and smile, even when it’s a tough day. Ideas include:

  • A short inside joke
  • “Put me back on!”
  • “Dibs”
  • “Property of”
  • “Non-refundable”
  • “You’re stuck with me now”
  • “No take-backs”

Coordinating Engravings

When you decide to engrave, you can choose to have the same engraving, different engravings, or engravings that coordinate with one another. This is a perfect idea for those who might connect with famous quotes from movies, literature, or television. Ideas include:

  • “I love you” … “I know” from Star Wars
  • “After all this time?” … “Always” from Harry Potter
  • “Moon of my life” … “My Sun and Stars” from Game of Thrones
  • “Big Spoon” … “Little Spoon” from a popular cuddling position

The Perfect Engraving Is What Fits You

When considering your engraving options, choosing something that fits you both is the most important aspect. It is a unique and special message that you’ll always have between one another. Since engraving is one of the last steps, you have plenty of time to decide, and you may even wait until after your big day. If you haven’t selected a ring yet, but know you want to engrave it, speak with your jeweler about your options. Engraving options will vary due to ring size and material. The professionals at Kobelli can help ensure your ring is uniquely you.
