Many couples will add their initials, weddings date, or coordinates of where they first met on the ring, but the sky is truly the limit! Brand out and add a sentimental phrase or song lyric, or - if you want to get super sentimental - a line from your vows. Your jeweler can help you decide fonts, the proper length for your engraving, and the ring type that will best compliment your sweet, private message.
