A Touch of Love Wedding Ring Engraving: Your Fingerprints
Quite possibly the most romantic way to engrave a wedding ring, you could choose to have your partner’s fingerprint. This would mean two identical wedding bands with the fingerprint of the one you love with you at all times. It’s a beautiful collision that could symbolise being one entity while keeping the unique qualities and characteristics that make you both unique. To do this, grab some ink and paper to make a copy of your fingerprint. Then, request it as your chosen wedding ring engraving.
Important to note: an entire fingerprint would not be possible, so choosing only a portion of it is required.
A Date to Remember Wedding Ring Engraving
Dates hold a significant meaning to people all over the world. It’s a way in which to remember special events, people, and occasions, and can be written down in several aesthetically-pleasing ways. For that reason, having a special date for your wedding ring engravings can be a creative and unique way to symbolise your love. Why not opt for Roman numerals? Or, you could just use numbers? Alternatively, include the written date for a longer-form date wedding engraving.
Added bonus? If you choose to have the date of your wedding engraved, you’ll never forget your wedding anniversary!
Name Your Wedding Ring Engraving
A name holds an immense amount of meaning for a number of reasons. Not only does it provide someone with a feeling of uniqueness and sense of belonging in the world, but can also hold other special connotations. Whether a name was given with religious intent, or simply because it had a nice ring to it, it is a meaningful representation of the person you’re going to spend your life with. For that reason, getting a wedding ring engraving of partner’s name is always something that will be special and distinctive. With this, you’ll be showing your love for your partner with an engraving that truly symbolises who they are and your love for them in its entirety.
