Wedding ring engraving ideas and tips

For many, it may seem tough to take something as strongly sentimental as a wedding ring and make it any more special. But with an engraved message featured on the inside of the band, you can take this piece of jewellery and make it something to truly cherish forever and that is completely personal to you and your partner.  

How many characters can I have engraved on my wedding band?

The inside of most wedding bands are able to feature around 30 characters including spaces, so sadly you can’t have all of your vows or an epic love poem added to your rings.  

What type of band is best for engraving?

Ideally, a wide plain band works best for engravings. It allows the jeweller more room to work with to add the characters but there is a new trend for having engravings added to diamonds themselves. This will need to be carried out by a specialist jeweller but the engraving itself will not be visible to the naked eye - it can only be seen with x10 magnification - and means that it’s a truly personal and special message for you and your partner to enjoy. The metal you choose for your ring makes a big difference too. A softer metal - such as 14k or 18k gold - is easier to engrave, but it may wear away quicker over time, with use. Platinum is a good choice for engraving, as the hard wearing metal lasts and lasts, making it resistant to wearing down and everyday scratches and damage.   [caption id="attachment_1206" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Platinum Diamond Half Eternity Ring Platinum Diamond Half Eternity Ring[/caption]
