Posted by on Nov 2, 2012 in Wedding tips |

Jewelry is something almost every woman adores. Well, some men also like it. However, buying an engagement or a wedding ring is not like buying a lovely necklace or a pair of chic earrings. There is a wide range of wedding rings, golden, platinum, titanium rings, with or without gems, yellow, white, a combination of colors. It is difficult to make a right choice. Those items meant to last and to be meaningful. In addition, you are supposed to wear your wedding rings until death do you apart. Therefore, many couples prefer practical, simple, yet beautiful wedding rings. But, how to make something be simple, yet unique? The very convenient and easy way to personalize your wedding bands is by engraving a romantic massage on the inside or outside of the shanks. This custom is so old, with its origins in the medieval European courts.

When you order the rings, make the request to your jeweler to get them engraved. Usually, jewelers do it for free, but sometimes if they do not own a proper equipment, they might recommend you an engraver. It is of high importance to double (or triple) check the spelling of the romantic inscription before you pass it on to be engraved. After you receive it, check it once again. When is the right time to do this? It depends on your jeweler. It can take few minutes or even one month. Popular words of engraving that might give you some ideas are:

  • Eternal Love
  • To my love
  • My heart is in your hands
  • S&B forever
  • M.V. to B.S. April 19
  • Never to part
  • No one but you
  • May 17
  • I love you
