    I like the idea of it. I didn’t feel my ring was wide enough for an engraving.

    sunshineno5:  I like the idea of having a little message inscribed in a wedding band. I’ll see what my Fiance thinks of it. 

    Question to any bees that may know more about this: are there certain metals that work better for inscriptions/engraving? My e-ring is set in white gold so I would want a white gold band to go with it. Would an inscription/engracing work with white gold?

    ladyvictoria:  White gold can absolutely be engraved! However, I wouldn’t engrave 18k white gold, as it’s much more soft. 14k is no problem and very commonly engraved.

    The inside of my engagement ring says “forever” and the “o” is a diamond. I thought it was sweet that he thought to do that. I can’t imagine I’ll ever regret that.

    I had his engraved with the longitude and latitude of where we first met. We did a lot of other things there too, like run past it during our first marathon, so it was significant all around.

    thessely:  Thank you for that information. My e-ring is set in 14k white gold so I would get a band to match. I’m glad to know that this will work if my Fiance likes the idea of it 🙂

    For our engagement I gave him a bracelet that says “Yes, I do”.. And behind it has our engagement date, and he loved it.. I love inscriptions and engravings and I use them as much as I can.. They’re sweet and a reminder to that person of how special they are.

    I like engravings, I think they’re lovely; however I got Darling Husband several inexpensive wedding bands (it was our compromise because I wanted bands to stack with my e-ring, and I don’t care what band he wears as long as he’s wearing one) and my rings are too thin to be engraved.

    I’ve got the date we first met inscribed on my engagement ring. I think it was the sweetest touch!

    I have our initials and our wedding date engraved on my band. My husband doesn’t because he wears his Grandfather’s band that was passed down to him. I love the engraving on mine!

    I would love to get my ring engraved but I don’t know if it’s too narrow or not,2mm? Every other ring I own is knife edge so it doesn’t work. But I love the idea either way! It’s very meaningful for me. 

    I Was thinking about our anniversary date or a phrase like “to infinity and beyond” because we both love Disney but then we always sign each others personal emails with love you X infinity x Pi(r)2 which is the formula for the area of a circle and technically a circle can be endless and it’s just times infinity twice really… we’re both science and math nerds sooo yea maybe that lol

    I think engravings are so sweet and meaningful, and we are definitely considering doing this! It is also like a birthmark of your ring for easy identification.

    Darling Husband and I kept it simple:  Inside his ring are our first names and the year we married (2003).  One my new anniversary rings it’s a bit different: my plain wedding band has our first name initials and our wedding date, and on my new engagement/anniversary ring is again, our first name initials and the date he proposed.  I don’t regret it at all and love that our names and dates are always on our fingers.
