Congratulations, you are getting married!
Now it’s time to have some fun choosing your wedding bands. If you feel like doing something a little bit different to represent your love story, engraving your wedding bands is the way to go. You can choose to either have the inside or the outside of your bands engraved, depending on whether you want to keep the engraving private or show it off to the world.
To begin with, some of you may not have any idea on what you would like to have engraved or how the entire process works. The Love Diamond has put together a simple guide to inspire you. Let’s start with understanding the process of engraving.
How does the process of engraving your wedding bands work?
At The Love Diamond boutique, the engraving will be done by our experienced artisans using a laser engraving machine. With this machine, the possibilities are almost endless, as we can engrave almost anything on your ring - even images or your own signature. All we need is the image in the right file format.
The basic engraving process consists of just a few steps:
Once you have selected your perfect wedding bands, make a request to get them engraved.
Choose a font or style of lettering from our available list of fonts.
Write down what you would like engraved. Be sure to double-check the spelling before you share it with your Personal Jeweller.
Your engraved wedding bands will be ready for collection within 14 working days.
Upon receiving the bands, check the engravings to make sure they are correct.
What can you engrave on your wedding bands?
Consider engraving a foreign word or phrase. The most popular options languages are, French and Italian because they are the most common romantic languages known to many. How about “Senza Fine” which means, "Never Ending" in Italian?
This is a popular choice for couples because it is not only simple and easy to fit one the wedding bands, it can also serve as a reminder of your anniversary date. Perhaps there are other dates you find more significant to your love story, for example, the day you both said “I love you” for the first time, the day you met or the day you got engaged.
Sometimes, a symbol can be more meaningful than a written message. Popular ones include the infinity symbol which signifies eternal love or how about The Love Diamond’s Yin and Yang wedding bands which represents a harmonious union.
Do you have a phrase or saying that resonates strongly with both of you? Perhaps, you have something that you frequently say to your partner like "I am home with you" or something cinematic, like "I love you 3000".
You could also take the more comedic route by inscribing something funny like an inside joke between the two of you. Here are some of our humble suggestions – "do not remove" or "happy wife, happy life".
