Over the years, we have helped hundreds of clients create their perfect wedding and engagement rings, and we often have requests for specific hidden details, whether it be a particular date, such as a couple’s wedding date, or a line from their favourite movie.
In today’s article, we will explore some excellent wedding ring engraving ideas. Feel free to use these ideas as is or use them as inspiration for a totally unique engraving. Read on to learn more!
How Much Does Wedding Ring Engraving Cost?
Often, there is no additional charge at all. This is because most of our wedding rings are created custom for each client using computer-aided design (CAD). In the case of a custom ring, we can quickly put a date, letters, or numbers on the inside of the band so that it can be 3D printed right in the design itself.
When clients decide on an engraving after the design has been created, costs can range from $25 if done by machine or more in the case of hand engraving.
How Safe Is Wedding Ring Engraving?
Many clients may be concerned about whether or not there are risks to the stability of the ring from having it engraved. Engraving does not pose any risk to the ring as long as a competent jewellery engraver does it. However, it is also important to take into account the width of the band. In the case of a very thin band, there may not be space for a visible engraving, whereas thicker bands can allow for much more visible letters, numbers, or symbols.
How Can I Get My Wedding Ring Engraved?
When working with a custom jewellery designer such as us, we recommend engraving while your wedding ring is being made. In this case, we have the ring 3D printed with the letters or numbers inside the band. If you wish to have your wedding ring engraved after you have worn it, we recommend bringing it to us or any skilled jeweller to have it engraved. This generally costs a small fee.
How Long Does Wedding Ring Engraving Take?
While the process is very quick, depending on how busy the engraver is, wedding ring engraving can take anywhere from a day to a week. However, if you know what you would like to have engraved before designing your wedding ring, this can be done during the initial design process with no additional time or fee.
Some Wedding Ring Engraving Ideas
Often, couples may have their wedding rings engraved with special, meaningful dates, such as the date when they first met. However, some wish to engrave special words, initials, or ideas from various films and television shows. Let’s look at some of the most popular and exciting ideas for engravings on your wedding ring.
Please note: The following are wedding ring engraving ideas which can generally be put inside the band of the ring. Some clients wish for more complex engravings, such as detailed shapes and vintage styles on the band. Those sorts of designs go beyond the scope of this article as they involve a detailed discussion during the custom design process. Please see other articles on vintage-style engagement rings for design inspiration.
