    I had my DH’s engraved with music notes from the last line of Ben Fold’s song The Luckiest (with a 7/6 time signature, and although there is no such thing, it respesents our wedding date). So, when he reads the music notes, it says “I am the Luckiest.” It was the song he proposed to me and sang to me at our wedding and for our 6 month anniversary.

    If you have something truly meaningful to engrave, then I say do it.

    Second the PP who says engrave if you have something meaningful to say. If you have to rack your brain to come up with something, then leave it. Inspiration might strike in the future, too.

    I think it’s a waste of money because a) you can’t see it when the ring is on (and I want that thing to stay on!); and b) it wears off due to being worn.

    I honestly didn’t even think of it, one of my DH’s groomsmen told him I might have done it as a surprise so he was looking for one and didn’t see one, of course.  So I kind of felt like a jerk — but he got another wedding day surprise.

    Agree with PP that if you two have a saying or something meaningful go for it.

    “As You Wish” feels a little awkard to me… but I like the idea of it just saying “This is true love”.

    Fiance and I have engraved a few pieces of Jewellry in the past so it just seemed natural to get his band engraved.

    We’re just getting “T&S 2014” for each of our initals and the year we’re getting married.. ๐Ÿ™‚ We have to keep it short because Tiffany’s only allows so many letters

    Pick a special quote or something with meaning to you and your fiance. I’m sure he’ll love whatever you pick.

    I’m going to get my fiance’s ring engraved with our wedding date and maybe “I love you, always, forever” and then my name. (If all that fits)

    I like the idea of them being engraved because it adds a little extra something special to it. And, if it’s done well, it doesn’t wear off. I’ve got a ring that was engraved with my university graduation date that I wear all the time – 7 years later it’s still good.

    I think it’s a great idea! The princess bride is my all time favorite movie and I think it would be an appropriate movie to find a quote from. I’m going to engrave my future hubby’s ring on the inside as well. It going to say ” Your my Favorite “. It’s what he always says to me. And now I find myself saying it back. Boys like to feel special to. Maybe it could be something you say to each other all the time.

    We engraved each other’s rings with our own handwriting. So mine says “always” in his handwriting, and his says it in mine.

    My ring is tiny, so this picture makes the engraving super blurry. But it’s really not at all. 

    I know that the rings themselves are symbolic of our commitment to each other, but there’s something about having a promise in his handwriting against my skin all the time that means a lot to me. These rings can never be mistaken for anyone else’s, even if dropped in with hundreds of other identical rings. We write each other notes all the time — dorky, sappy, silly, it doesn’t matter — and knowing that I’m carrying one around with me is just…perfect.

    It’s a very sweet idea, and even if you can’t decide which quote for the engraving now, it can always be a future surprise for when you find the right one.

    @AlwaysSunny:  We got them done at Weisfeld Jewelers in Phoenix. They’re a chain and they are located around the country, sometimes under a different name. However, all you really need is a place that does “logo” or “image” engraving. We wrote it out, scanned it, saved the files as .jpgs to a flash drive and handed the drive and the rings over to the jeweler. The great — actually, wonderful — thing was that they did engraving on rings purchased outside of their own store, too. They didn’t carry a plain rose gold band of the right dimensions (2mm wide, 1.8 – 2mm “high” (inside to outside)) so they offered to make a mold using my engagement ring to match it perfectly, except for the stone’s setting, which is what I was wanting. But it cost $300 just to cast the mold. I got my ring for $175 online and they were just as happy to engrave it as they were my husband’s ring, which we bought at their store.

    There are places that you can find online where you send them your rings, but I wasn’t comfortable with that. I was very happy and comfortable with the woman who worked with us and I trusted her with our rings. Even though she wasn’t actually there the day we dropped them off — and the two people working there had no idea that they offered logo engraving — they still figured it out with relatively little trouble and we got back perfect rings.
