Engraving Ideas for Wedding Band Sets

by Gillian Burgess Thursday, 26 March 2015 Wedding Rings

Ring Engraving S 522dcd7b22d43 There is no better way to personalize your wedding rings than to engrave them with a message that is meaningful to you both. When you buy an engagement ring, wedding band sets and/or trio ring sets from My Trio Rings, you can have them engraved for a small additional fee.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to our ring engraving page and select which rings you’d like engraved.
  2. Select standard or cursive font. 
  3. Write the message you’d like engraved - up to 15 characters. Double and triple-check it to make sure it’s spelled correctly! (We’ll also email you to confirm the message before we engrave it.) 
  4. Add it to your cart with your rings.
  5. Your rings will arrive beautifully engraved with your personalized message.

Are you and your partner not yet sure what you want to engrave on your wedding band sets? Here are a few engraving ideas that will last the test of time.

Meaningful dates
Commemorate the date you met, the date you started your relationship, your wedding date or your two birthdays.

Names or initials
Keep it simple and classic by using your initials - “JB + ML” - or first names if they fit - “Tom + Sarah.”

Expressions of love
Je t’aime, ti amo, te quiero. Engrave a heartfelt “I love you” on your rings.

Lyrics from your song
Do you two have a song? Engrave a short line that is meaningful to you - “All I want is you” or “At last” or “I’m yours.”

Scripture verse
If you and your spouse-to-be share a common faith, engrave a Bible verse that is going to be a reading at your wedding - such as Ephesians 4:2-3 ("Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.") or Mark 10:9 (“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.")

Line of poetry
If you two love a certain poem, select a short excerpt of it to engrave on your wedding bands - such as “How do I love thee” or “Love one another”

One word
Choose just one word that represents your bond - such as “forever,” “always,” “together" or “yes.”

Reaffirm your wedding vows every day with an engraving that says, “I do,” “ever after,” or “I choose you.”

Diamond Cut: What to Look for in Engagement Rings & Wedding Band Sets

by Gillian Burgess Tuesday, 17 March 2015 Wedding Rings

1 2 3 Carat T.W. Diamond Ladies  Engagement Ring 14K White Gold ST505W14KE The 4 C’s are essential to understand when you are shopping for diamond rings: cut, color, clarity and carat weight. Together the 4 C’s determine a diamond’s value. In this series, we’ll look more closely at each of the 4 C’s - what each one means and what you should be aware of when shopping for diamond engagement rings and wedding band sets.

First up: diamond cut!

Diamond Cut vs. Diamond Shape

People often confuse diamond cut with diamond shape. A diamond’s shape is its appearance - such as round, square, rectangular or oval.

A diamond’s cut, on the other hand, is its ability to reflect light; how well it is cut affects its facets and angles and how the light reflections appear. If a jeweler cuts a diamond too deep or too shallow, light escapes from the sides or the top - leading to lackluster engagement rings or wedding band sets. Diamond cut is evaluated on a scale ranging from excellent - reflecting as much light as possible - to poor - losing light on different sides. The most common diamond cut is the round brilliant, which features 58 flat, polished facets that reflect the maximum amount of light.

Diamond cut influences three important factors:

  • Brilliance: the white light reflections combined from the surface and the inside of a polished diamond
  • Scintillation: the flashes of dark and light that cause a sparkle when the light source, the diamond or the observer moves
  • Fire: the flashes of color you see when light is dispersed throughout the visible spectrum
  • Scintillation is often thought of as contrasting dark and brightness that alternates from facet to facet and attracts our eyes as the diamond, the illumination or the observer moves.

Diamond Cut Guide

The Gemological Institute of America has an interactive tool on its website that allows you to see how a diamond’s cut affects its brilliance, scintillation, fire and overall quality.
