My soon-to-be FI plans to wear an engagement band. For sentimental reasons, we don’t want to purchase a new wedding ring to replace the e-band, so we are having our wedding bands engraved to transition from “e-ring” to “wedding band”.
What words or phrase did you have engraved on your rings? And if you have pics, share those too!

@MrsCatLady: My FI wears an Engagement band too! I want to get our wedding bands engraved, but am not sure if my size bands will support it. I am going to e jewelers to pick mine up from being sized later today and I will ask them.
I want to get our initials with our wedding date: M&M 11-12-13

I love engrving on rings! I have the first letters of our first names with hearts engraved inside of my ering, not too creative but I love it.

My rings are really delicate; I don’t know if words would fit we tried to add them. However, I had “you make my heart beat faster” engraved in my fiance’s ring. The words are lyrics to “Faster” by Matt Nathanson, which is the song we’ll be dancing to as we’re announced for the first time at our reception. Good luck!

I am having “After all this time?” engraved in my ering and “Always” engraved in my band. It fits us perfectly because I love Harry Potter and SO and I have been together for 8 yrs, 9 mos. It’s a Harry Potter quote. Here is an image I photoshopped months ago. This isn’t.the design of my rings, but you get the idea.

We got our white gold bands engraved for our Seattle marriage ceremony! They say “Today I make you mine 3.12.13″… we will wear them on our right hands until our wedding in May and then combine them.

@bunnyharriet: Aww love that! And I know it’s not yours, but that ring is stunning!
@lovebirds08: See I love that. I want something sweet and to the point. But I’m stressing myself out with the pressure of having it etched into our rings forever! lol

What I’d really like to get is his first name engraved on the inside of my band and my first name on the inside of his. Everything’s still quite a ways away, but it’s just always something I’ve envisioned.

i don’t have advice on a word or phrase… we ran out of ideas and just put our wedding date! 🙂 But here’s one thing I wish I had thought of… i pictured the engraving in script – instead the month is in ALL CAPS and it’s so unromantic! Not a huge issue but I wished I had asked about the “font” when we ordered the rings.

I personally don’t like ring engravings… don’t know why.
Well, maybe it’s because I find that when i see engravings on other people’s rings they always look kinda cheesy or outdated. i’m a bit odd like that though, i wouldn’t want to “mar” the ring especially if it has a designer’s stamp inside it.
