Check Out the My Trio Rings Engraving Service!
Did you know that we have an engraving service at My Trio Rings? If you’re looking to add a more meaningful and personal touch to your wedding rings, then engraving them might be the way to go.
We make it easy for you. All you have to do is visit our engraving page and select which rings you’d like engraved:
- Choose between a trio ring set, a bridal ring set, an engagement ring, a ladies’ band, or a men’s band.
- Choose whether you’d like cursive or standard font.
- Write the message you want. Engraving is limited to 15 characters-- so be sure to make every character count!
Engraving wedding rings goes all the way back to medieval Europe when rings were inscribed with romantic poetry. It’s the perfect way to add personalization and deepen the significance of your rings. Just imagine going above and beyond and engraving a special, intimate word or phrase on one of our bridal ring sets or trio ring sets for your sweetheart. Not sure what to get engraved? Here are a few ideas:
- Your wedding date
- The date you met
- A quote that means something to you as a couple
- The nicknames you have for one another
- A romantic secret you share
There are also some common phrases that people get engraved on their wedding rings, such as:
- I love you
- I do
- All my love
- To my wife/husband
Already know what you’re going to put on your rings? Great! Before you place your order, here are a few tips to consider.
1. Unless you want this to be a surprise, it might be a good idea to check with your significant other before making a decision to engrave your rings. These rings will last forever, so you don’t want to make a misstep on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
2. Double check the message you want engraved. Check the spelling. Check the grammar. Read it over and over. Check it again when we email you to confirm the message.
3. If you’re not sure about engraving your rings, then wait. You can always have them engraved later. For example, you could have them engraved after a milestone wedding anniversary.
4 Lovely Same-Sex Matching Bridal Ring Sets
Wedding season is almost here, and we want to make sure all of our customers are ready! Today, I want to highlight some of our most exquisite bridal ring sets for female same-sex couples. All of the rings in this section are matching bridal wedding bands, which perfectly symbolize the union you’ll form at the altar. We have a wide selection to choose from, but here are a few of our current favorite bridal ring sets.
1. 1/3 CT. Matching Bridal Set
Want matching wedding bands that represent your unique style as a couple? Check out this 1/3 CT. matching bridal set. The stylish, almost bead-like design of the rings perfectly complements the 3 columns of 2 diamonds in the middle. This set is made with white gold, and you can choose between 10K gold or 14K gold. Both of the rings have a combined total of 12 round-cut, sparkling diamonds that are sure to catch the sun beautifully.
2. 1/4 CT. Matching Bridal Set
If you’re looking for a classic ring set in yellow gold, this just might be the set for you. These matching wedding bands are simple enough that they would go well with any engagement ring, but also elegant enough to stand on their own. Each of these rings has 9 natural, glittering diamonds. And if you’d rather have them in white gold, that option is available, too! These rings can also be made in either 10K or 14K gold.
3. 3/4 CT. Matching Bridal Set
Do you prefer a thicker band to a thinner one? This set features the wider style and has 3 columns of 2 diamonds on each ring. This design lets the diamonds take center stage, with the grooves on the bands highlighting their sparkle. This matching bridal set is made in 14K white gold and originally retails for double our price.
4. 3/8 CT. Matching Bridal Set
If both you and your sweetheart have an engagement ring with a head that needs to be accounted for when picking out a wedding band, this 3/8 CT. matching bridal set is a good contender. This wedding band would look especially exquisite under a halo engagement ring, and it will slip right under the halo head. This matching wedding band set only comes in white gold, but you are able to choose between 10K and 14K gold. The set has a whopping total of 42 shimmering, round-cut diamonds.

4 Bridal Ring Sets for Summer Weddings
Planning on proposing this summer and don’t feel like waiting a long time to walk down that aisle? Instead of buying an engagement ring separate from the wedding band, consider buying them together in one of our bridal ring sets.
This approach has many benefits. For example, buying them together ensures that the rings will match, and it will be one less worry when it comes to planning your wedding. If you’re wanting to propose AND get married this summer, we have some exquisite bridal ring sets that are perfect for the season (and ship quickly).
1. 1/7 CT Matching Bridal Set
Summer is a magical time of year, and few of our bridal ring sets scream "magic" quite like this 1/7 CT matching bridal set. The twisted accents on both the engagement ring and the band give this set a romantic and fairytale-esque feel. Snow White herself could have worn these! These rings can be made in 10K or 14K white or yellow gold. There are 17 sparkling, natural diamonds in this set.
2. 1/3 CT Matching Bridal Set
One of the biggest wedding ring trends this season is a halo engagement ring. This 1/3 CT. bridal set combines that trend with a matching wedding band. This trendy, yet timeless square halo diamond engagement ring looks even more gorgeous next to the wedding band that incorporates the same diamond pattern. These rings are made with 10K white gold, and the set has a whopping total of 61 shimmering diamonds.
3. 1/2 CT Matching Bridal Set
Take one look at this ring set, and I bet you’ll be able to to tell why it's perfect for summer. Figure it out? It’s the elegant flower motif on the engagement ring! The head of the engagement ring on this 1/2 CT matching bridal set has a subtle floral design, which gives a unique spin on a classic cluster head engagement ring. These rings are available in either yellow or white gold, and you can also choose between 10K and 14K gold. You’ll also find a total of 21 conflict-free diamonds in this set.
4. 11/10 CT Matching Bridal Set
Here’s another matching bridal set that has an engagement ring with a floral motif head. We love how the large head is paired with thin bands (which is another wedding ring trend this summer). The thinner bands perfectly complement the centerpiece, while also letting it take center stage. This 11/10 CT. bridal ring set has a total of 50 glittering diamonds, and it comes in both white and yellow gold. You can also choose between 10K and 14K gold.

Best Places to Propose in San Jose, California
Silicon Valley is the home of some of our most innovative digital technology companies (for example, Google, Apple, Facebook, and so on). It might not be the first place you think of when a romantic proposal crosses your mind, but you’d be wrong. San Jose is located in the beautiful Bay Area and has a variety of perfect places for you to get down on one knee and present your sweetheart with a diamond engagement ring. Here are four of the best places to propose in San Jose, California:
1. Redwood Canopy Tours
Want to do something fun and outdoorsy? Take your partner on a redwood canopy tour! The two of you can get the adrenaline pumping as you zip-line through the coast of the redwood forest. The tours are around two hours, so take that into consideration when planning your proposal. Do you want to do it before, during, or after? Whatever you choose, take advantage of the fact that you’ll be 150 feet above ground. I bet not many people can say they were proposed to from that high up!
2. Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve
Despite the name, this vast and beautiful preserve can be found just outside of San Jose (and not in San Antonio). If you want to take your partner on a hike or a picnic, this is the place to do it. You’ll be wowed be the views. Here’s a tip: get there early. This is a popular spot in the San Jose area since it provides an escape from the city, so it can get pretty crowded. If you want a more intimate proposal, take your sweetheart out for a sunrise breakfast picnic or hike.
3. Japanese Friendship Garden
Here’s another beautiful outdoor spot to consider. With over five acres of gardens, you’ll quickly see why this would be one of the most picturesque places to propose in San Jose. You’ll also find a koi pond, fountains, and numerous streams. In fact, this is a popular wedding venue! Imagine having your proposal and ceremony in the same place. That’s the epitome of romance. In fact, you could present her with a sparkling diamond engagement ring and tell her that you want to marry her in this very spot. (Browse our bridal ring sets before you propose, and remember that you can save 10% on your future wedding band purchases with our She Said Yes program.)
4. Plaza de César Chávez
If you’re looking to do a public proposal, this open plaza is the perfect spot. This space hosts a number of different festivals and fairs throughout the year. It even houses the official city Christmas tree during the holidays. Just imagine presenting your partner with a diamond engagement ring under that tree. If you don’t want to propose at an already scheduled public event, try doing something creative of your own!
