The wedding is always themost exciting event in every couple’s life. Every wedding is unique and unforgettable, but the wedding rings, despite their wide variety, are not that much original and unique.

If you would like to make them look more interesting and special, you could engrave them. From a practical point of view, the engraving is useful too, because you could engrave the wedding date on them and not forget when exactly is the anniversary.

 

First of all – the ring size

You should know the exact size of your fingers when you decide to engrave the rings. A technological problem might be the small size of the rings, but it all depends on the skills of the goldsmith.

 

Handmade engraving or machine engraving

The answer of this question depends on the opportunities that you have. The machine or laser engraving is nowadays widely spread. It gives you the opportunity to choose from a wide range of alternatives and styles of engraving. The engraving label is made by the usage of a program which sends the information to the engraving machine. Some machines could engrave only block letters (no other like italic or cursive fonts, for example), that is why if you wish to have a label with another font, you should ask if it would be possible to be made.

 

An example for laser engraving

The handmade engraving depends a lot on the skills and the opportunities of the man who engraves. The rich experience is very important also for the engraving of some more complicated symbols. You should know that the golden rings are more appropriate for engraving than the platinum ones. The gold is more inclinable to engraving. On the other hand the platinum is more resistant to abrasion. That is why the labels engraved on platinum jewelry last longer.
