Hello ladies! My fiance and I were talking about what kind of ring he wants and he came up with a really good idea! He was a marine and is now a police officer, so he wants to have a badge with an eagle, globe and anchor inside, engraved on his ring. I think this is a GREAT idea! However, he wants this to be engraved on the outside of the ring, not on the inside. Neither of us have ever seen anything like this done, so I promised him I would ask you ladies and see if anyone knows anything about this.
Has anyone ever had something engraved on the outside of their wedding ring? Are there certain places that would do this, or would it just be the same process as having the inside engraved?

I’m not sure if this helps, but I know that my graduation/class rings from high school and college have engravings on the outside. Does he want the engraving to be flush with the ring surface? Or does he want something that is in relief? I think you could probably go to a local jeweler and have something designed to be what he really wants. I’m not sure what it would cost, but I think that would depend a lot on the design, metal, etc… aspects of his ring.

Hmmm not sure if he wants it flush or relief…I’m going to have to ask when he gets home. The way he was describing it sounded like he wanted it to look like how you would have something engraved on the inside of your ring…

I know that some people make custom titanium bands, but the one I purchased for a previous bf wasn’t engraved, it had a laser inlay. I am not sure if that would work for him, but it’s an idea. I mean, think about class rings, pretty much anything can be put on a ring, so I would just consult with a local jeweler to see what your options are.

Thats a good point! Thanks 🙂 I guess the hard part will be finding someone willing to do this for us!
Thanks for the help!

Definitely ask a jeweler. We went to a local jeweler who had lots of books full of different types of rings. (I’m talking a real jeweler – not a chain store in a mall or whatever). A lot of the rings we saw looked like they were just BEGGING to have some custom engraving or carving done on the outside of them.
