Wedding bands symbolize a lifelong commitment to a partner, and they can mean even more with a personalized engraving. While there are many choices to look over when engraving a tungsten wedding band, this complete guide from the team at Steven G Designs will help you learn about the process and make the best decision for your future.
Take a look at how wedding bands are engraved, how they can immortalize your commitment to each other, and how to care for the band so it lasts a lifetime.
Many couples choose wedding bands as a physical sign of their marriage and partnership.
One thing you can do to make that item even more special is to personalize it with a message or date that holds significance. The message will stay with you and your partner whenever you wear the rings as an additional layer to your deep connection.
The choice to engrave a tungsten wedding band is deeply personal, but it can be a wonderful gift for both of you. The message will be carried with them when worn, and they can view it when they take the ring off to keep it safe. It can also help locate you if the ring is ever lost, as it will be more unique than a ring without any special markings.
Just as personal as the decision to engrave the ring, the decision on what the engraving will say takes careful consideration.
There are tried and true classics that are romantic, such as the couple’s initials or words like “Forever” to symbolize eternal love. There are also more comedic options for couples who want a good laugh in their marriage, like “You’re stuck with me” or any inside joke.
Keep in mind that with this process, there is proper engraving etiquette to be aware of. As with any lifelong decision, you don’t want to make your choice in haste. Rather than trying to impress your partner with your poetry skills or grand gestures, simple is often better.
Here are some wonderful ideas to have engraved on your wedding band:
You can also pair the rings with coordinating phrases! This will make the set even more unique and personal as a couple. This is also perfect for fans of pop fiction who want to add a bit of flair from their favorite books or movies with iconic lines they love.
What should be engraved on the rings is best discussed between both partners beforehand. After all, once engraved, rings are not easy to alter and often cannot be returned or refunded.
Finally (and so important!) – you’ll want to double-check the spelling to make sure there are no mistakes for the final cut.
The personalized message on an engraved tungsten wedding band is best done inside the ring. While outer engravings can be done, there’s something special about a message only the wearer knows about. It adds to the bond between partners and gives them a unique personalization to carry with them.
Keep in mind that tungsten wedding bands are durable, but they can only hold so many characters, including spaces, when getting engraved. This means that a longer message or poem will not be able to fit on the ring.
Short and sweet is often best, as the text will be legible and clear on the band.
When you send your personalized message, you can choose from a variety of fonts to have it written in on the ring. Special characters and heart symbols are also available, allowing for a romantic message to be short and sweet.
The engravings are done word for word how the message is sent, including capitalization. Special requests can be made, though they may require an additional charge to cover the customization. Samples of the text can be generated for confirming before the final engraving is done and cannot be changed.
Keep in mind that, due to the unique process of altering the ring, refunds, returns, and exchanges are not accepted since the ring will be made into a unique item as per the order.
There are many materials to make wedding bands from, such as a classic gold ring, but tungsten wedding bands are ideal for engraving messages.
The tungsten is bonded with carbon, making it incredibly durable and resistant to scratches and wear. Couples who lead active lives or want their jewelry to remain pristine are most likely to love this material.
Due to the toughness of the ring, it can’t be resized or bent, but laser engravings can create a lasting impression on the material. Your message will be safe and sound, immortalized inside the ring that won’t wear down as you build a life together.
While the material in a tungsten wedding band is durable, it’s not unbreakable, nor does it mean that it doesn’t need care. Rings can get dirty over time, especially if they’re not removed regularly. Rings need to be cleaned just like any other clothing or jewelry.
The best way to clean your ring is to soak it in warm water and cleanse it with gentle soap. This will remove any dirt without damaging the ring, leaving your band looking as good as new. Washing your ring regularly ensures that it lasts a lifetime and looks great!
Additionally, while the tungsten and carbon alloy is durable, it can shatter under pressure. For example, the ring can break if dropped or hit from a height, so you’ll still want to be careful with it like any other valuable you own.
Engraving a wedding band doesn’t have to be expensive. While some places may charge $100 or more for a specialized engraving, you can often find a quality engraver for much less.
Most rings can accommodate between 15 to 30 characters on the band, and the average price for such a message comes to about $50 out of pocket if you know where to look.
With Steven G Designs, engraving costs as little as $18 with plenty of customization. This add-on is perfect for tungsten wedding bands that need an extra touch of care before vows are made on the big day. While weddings can be expensive, adding a special message to your ring can be an affordable cost.
There are many things to consider when crafting your wedding bands, from the materials to the cost, but one thing that should be an exciting feature is selecting a custom message for your partner to wear. This special commitment is enhanced by words of endearment or encouragement.
Take a look at what we have to offer and find the perfect match for you! Everyone deserves to have that incredible moment, and why not make it better by having a unique tungsten wedding band to go with it?
