How to personalise your wedding ring

Your wedding band is special for many reasons, a symbol of your marriage, union and commitment worn on your ring finger. Usually made from a precious metal, there are many ways to personalise your wedding ring.

Laser Engraving

Using sophisticated machinery offers the option of intricate laser engraving to create a unique design or personalised message. The possibilities are endless, with anything that means something to you as a couple possible. Here are some ideas:

  1. The wedding date

You can inscribe the date of the wedding inside the ring, handy to ensure you never forget your anniversary. This could be in roman numerals or as numbers.

  1. Your favourite song lyric

Perhaps you already know the song of your first dance, or another that is meaningful to you as a couple. You can choose to have a line each to complete it, or both the same. Otterly Yours have a Sound Wave ring where you can go beyond lyrics to the actual song.

  1. A quote, poetry or wedding vow.

This practise actually dates back to the middle ages where couples had lines of poetry inscribed. Any quote or line from poetry may be the perfect unique personalisation, which could be a little saying you have for each other like “I love you to the moon and back”.

  1. Patterns, Shapes or animals

The world is your oyster here, especially if you have a shared interest that you bond over or a nickname you secretly call each other. Be it the movie from your first date, or animals associated with love like Lobsters or Turtle Doves.

  1. Finger print or heart beat

There is nothing more unique than a fingerprint, and if you always want to be together you can consider having each others fingerprints or even heart beats inside the rings.

  1. Location

To make it special you could throwback to your first date or even the location of the proposal for a unique personalisation with either Co-ordinates or a skyline silhouette.

Bespoke or Shaped

A bespoke wedding ring is when the item is not off the shelf so can be a completely unique design or even a combination of ideas for that complete perfection. Companies such as Wedding Rings Direct offer a fully bespoke service which includes designing and creating the ring for you.

A shaped wedding ring is designed to fit around your engagement ring. Many women choose the same metal and also put Diamonds in to complete the appearance.

Finish and Metal

With more choices than ever of types of metal available, your customisation may be based on your choice of metal (or even two with an inlay). Also, there is a range of possibilities when it comes to the finish of the wedding ring.
