I love when such a treasured item has a small piece of your background wrapped up in it. Whether it be an heirloom stone, a sentimental engraving, etc.
My husband has a celtic rope design around the outside of his wedding band because both of us have irish backgrounds. I’m currently having an anniversary ring custom made and am hoping to incorporate something similar into it as well.
How many of you have done something like this with you or your partner’s rings? As always, feel free to post your pics!

Nope! I’ve only really seen it with Irish symbology… But I’d be curious to see if anyone else has done something like this with their rings.
DH is Canadian with a mostly Ukrainian background, and I’m Canadian with a chilean/mixed background… So nothing really seemed like it would fit, maybe a canadian diamond… But that wasn’t so important as long as the stone was conflict free.

Nope! But we are both such mutts of every single european heritage that neither of us even identify with any particular nationality beyond “american”
However, I think that it is so beautiful when I see women with stunning rings that represent their, or their Fiance’s nationalities.
Some of the claddagh enagement rings I have seen seriously take my breath away.
I’d feel weird wearing onemyself because neither my FI or I are particularly irish. I have a little fraction of irish in me but that’s it.

@lavenderstone: Not technically. However, I have been dancing hula for almost 8 years and I fell in love with a Hawaiian designed ring which is now my e-ring.

No. I picked what I liked.

absolutely. People accurately guess where my husband is from based on my ring all the time.

I guess it did. My guy’s family is from Asia where solid gold jewelry is more common/popular. We ended up with solid gold ring, a combination of that and personal taste. The women in my family didn’t quite get it but the women in his family went nuts over it.
