Wedding Ring Inscriptions. The Ultimate Unique Wedding Band

Aug 1, 2008
Wedding ring inscriptions are a great way to covert the simplest wedding band into a unique wedding band. Gone are the days of just having your wedding anniversary scratched on the inside of your ring. Is there a song title, saying, or even a scripture that you both love?

Some couples decide to have a part of their wedding vows engraved on their wedding rings. Another popular idea is to incorporate something from the wedding theme (if you had one). The name of the resort or town where you are honeymooning perhaps? Your pet names for each other, or even the name of the restaurant for your first date.

The engraved wedding band is not just limited to words on the inner side of the band. Some couples are electing to have longer inscriptions on the edge of their band or on the outer side (this would have to be re engraved as the ring wore down). Some specialized jewelers are even engraving inscriptions on diamonds. These are not usually obvious to the naked eye, and are more costly, but do allow for identification of your stone if it is ever stolen.

Check on the time frame for the engraving to be done. This can vary from one day to a month. Prices can fluctuate between $1 per letter to almost $10 depending on whether the engraving is done by hand or machine, and the degree of embellishment you require. It is also probably a great idea if you are able to see any of the jeweler's other engraving handiwork. If your jeweler seems hesitant, or disinterested find another who does specialize in wedding band engraving.

Your own inscriptions will be on your wedding rings forever. If the words are on the inside, none else will generally be reading them, allowing for a little more privacy. However, if you opt for an external wedding ring inscription, you will need to remember that others will be able to read it as well. Your pet nicknames may not look like quite such a great idea in another 20 or 30 years.

Many couple are electing to have inscriptions in French, Italian, Spanish, Latin, or Hebrew. What about some of these?

*English:
Always
Forever
Love is eternal
Today, tomorrow, forever
Never to part
From this moment on
God unite both in love
Bless this ring, bless our life

*French:
Je T'aime: I Love You
Par Grant Amour: For My Greatest Love
Mon Coeur Est a Vous: You Have My Heart
Par Grant Amour: For My Greatest Love
Mon Amour: My Love
Pour toujours et toujours: Forever and always

*Spanish:
Con tutto l'mio amore: I am yours always

*Italian:
Il Mio Cuore e il Tuo Per Sempre: My Heart is Yours Forever
Con tutto l'mio amore: With all my heart
Amore Mio: My Love

*Hebrew:
Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li: I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine
Mizpah: God watch between us when we are absent from one another

* Latin:
Amor Vincit Omnia: Love Conquers All
Semper Amemus: Let Us Love Always
Deus Nos Iunxit: God Joined Us
Pari Passu: With Equal Step
Semper Fidelis: Always Faithful

Many of these quotes actually translate into beautiful inscriptions in English.

Wedding ring inscriptions can be fun, romantic, sentimental, or incredibly personal. Words of love to be permanently remembered. Much like your wedding vows.
