    sunshineno5:  I don’t have an inscription inside my ring and neither does my husband. However, I think they can be sweet especially if it’s a quote or saying that’s special to the couple.

    Ours are engraved inside. For me he chose ‘for infinity’ with the infinity symbol. I chose for his ‘stuck on you’. lionel Richie featured heavily in our dating and its out first dance. I think the rings themselves are symbolic enough, but for us it was a nice little personalised quirk to add.

    I have a couple I’m marinating in.

    The first is ‘bayti’, which means ‘my home’ in Hebrew. I believe it derives from a saying, ‘My wife is not just my wife, she is my home.’

    The other is the more traditional ‘Ani l’dodi v’dodi li’, which is ‘I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine.’

    Because they’re traditional and timeless, I can see having them as a forever-inscription. But I’m happy to hear his input, when the time comes, if there’s a more personal quote between us he has in mind πŸ˜‰

    sunshineno5:  I really want to do some type of inscription, but as a total suprise to my Fiance.

    sunshineno5:  I’m totally a “words” person. (Which makes sense, because I write — LOL) So I’ve always loved having an inscription in my most special rings. In my original band, it says “Forever” with our wedding date.

    In my plain YG band (which has quickly become my favorite), it says “Keep me warm inside our bed”. I have this inscribed on my plain RG band, too. On my platinum band, I wanted to put part of the next line from the song, but they didn’t offer to engrave very many words, so I only have a tiny bit of it. It says “Dreams of you” (the line is “I’ve got dreams of you all through my head”).

    My Darling Husband has had a bit of a saga with his bands. He’s lost a couple, and then he lost so much weight that his last one (of the “originals”) won’t fit any more. It can’t be resized. A couple of years ago, I got him a stainless steel band, but I’ve never loved it. For Christmas, I got him a new band that is closer in style/design to his originals, and it’s from the same company. I wanted to see if he liked it before getting it engraved. He does, though, so I’m going to put “Just like Heaven” in it. I’ve always thought of that as “our” song. (Even though it’s kind of a weird song. LOL)

    For me it makes then special  and almost like they become part of your ‘history’,  may seem silly but for me especially wedding bands become more part of you by having them engraved.

    I surprised my fiance with an inscription. It’s a line from a song called “Over the Moon” from the band Future Folk. It’s a really meaningful song to us, and we both adore it.

    The inscription says: “I see stars.”

    I think if there’s something that is meaningful to you, and that you will look at in 20 years and it will still make you smile, you should go for it. But don’t force it. Tattoos are a great comparison… I have a few that make me smile everyday, and a couple that make me roll my eyes and think, “Wooooooow.”

    My e-ring is inscribed with the nickname we have for each other. Even if we stop calling each other this name in 10 years, it will still remind me of the beginning of our relationship when we did. So I don’t think I’ll have any regrets. It’s also not a cutesy term, it’s a made up word, so I won’t cringe either πŸ˜‰

    My rings are thin so I dont have them on mine, but I got it for my husband’s ring as a surprise and he loves it.

    I used lyrics from a song he loves “Whiskey in my water” by Kip Moore and we both also love the movie Nacho Libre and we would always sign our cards and texts with a line from the movie (big kiss, little kiss= Xx) so I combined the lyrics with the line from the movie. The inside of his ring says “YOU’RE THE MOON IN MY SHINE Xx” I dont think its something we will ever get sick of because we laugh about it and its cute and endearing to us.

    sunshineno5:  I don’t but I had “Love never fails” inscribed into my husband’s wedding band. I Corinthians 13 is a pretty special biblical passage for us and I wanted some part of it inscribed inside of his band to remind him that it’s a key part of our foundation as a unit (and just in case I screw up really bad lol).

    I have my husband’s name inside mine, nothing else.  There wasn’t much space to engrave in mine but I loved the idea of having his name.

    His initials will be engraved in mine and he’ll have my initials in his. That way we’re always carrying one another close. And it’s not something that’ll ever feel dated.

    We never even considered quotes or pet names because we didn’t want anything too cutesy engraved. Plus there are a ton of hallmarks/stamps inside our rings so I doubt we’d be able to fit much.  

    We thought about dates but our wedding date won’t mean much to us (we’ve been together over 8 years now). And our official dating anniversary also isn’t that meaningful since we met and developed feelings for one another several years before that. So there really isn’t one special date for us.
