Ask A Jeweler: Engraving Ideas

Adding a sentimental custom engraved message to the inside of your engagement ring or wedding band is great way to add extra meaning to your bridal jewelry and even share a message that's just between you and your partner. At Scott & Co. Fine Jewelers, we are happy to offer engraving as a way to personalize both existing and custom jewelry designs. 

When you trust us to add a custom message to your bridal jewelry, each engraving is executed by a master craftsman, expertly trained in the art of jewelry engraving. Engraving can add a personal touch to an already special possession.

It is important to note that most couples choose to engrave their message on the inside of the band so that it doesn’t take away from the beauty of the ring. While it is possible to engrave the outside of the ring, the message is likely to fade from wear over time.

Engraving Ideas

A Special Date
You might consider getting a special date engraved to remind you of the day you met, when you fell in love, when you proposed, or when you plan to say "I do." Wedding anniversaries, birthdays, or other milestones such as graduations are other popular occasions that we see often engraved on keepsake jewelry.

Concise and personal, initials are a wonderful sentiment to have engraved on the inside of a ring. The initials of your partner can be a simple and wonderful way to celebrate them while personalizing your ring. Make it even more special and have your initials engraved alongside theirs to symbolize an everlasting bond with your future husband or wife.

A Sweet Message
Having a ring engraved is a wonderful opportunity to write a special message in stone - or precious metal rather. Perhaps you have a special nickname for your loved one you’d like that forever written in time, or a special saying you share together. Even a simple ‘I Love You’ can be a beautiful reminder to share with someone.

Here are some other sayings we're fond of:

'Let's Grow Old Together'

'Forever + Always'

'All My Love'

'Eternally Yours'

'My Love, My Life'

'Cross My Heart'

An Inside Joke
Since the inside of your engagement ring or wedding band is such an unseen place, this is the perfect place to make use of that joke or story that's just between the two of you. A ring is a small piece of real estate, so start thinking how to express that sentiment in as few characters as possible!
