Wedding Ring Engraving FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How much does it cost to engrave a wedding ring?

Engraving costs can be as diverse as your choice of rings! Expect to pay anywhere from $20 to $100 for basic engraving services. It might increase the price if you’re thinking of a more complex design or a pricier font.

How long does it take to have a wedding ring engraved?

Standard engraving can take anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, but it can vary depending on the complexity of your design. If ordering a custom job, be prepared to wait up to a month.

How many words can fit on a wedding band when having it engraved?

Typically, you can fit between 15 to 30 characters depending on the ring size and font choice. Smaller rings or more ornate fonts might allow for fewer characters. Remember, it’s not about cramming in as many words as possible but finding the perfect message that speaks volumes. Keep it sweet and meaningful!

What is the best font style for engraving a ring?

When it comes to font style for ring engraving, the best font is one that fits your personal style and the ring’s design. Classic styles might lean towards ‘Roman’ or ‘Script.’ If you are looking for something more modern, try ‘Arial’ or ‘Verdana.’ Just remember, simplicity is key. The font should enhance, not overshadow, your special message.

Should a wedding ring be engraved on the inside or outside?

Most people choose to engrave wedding rings on the inside, offering a secret message between you and your partner. However, some people opt for outside engraving for a more visible display of their commitment. Choose whichever sounds best for you.

Does engraving a wedding ring weaken the metal or damage the ring?

No, engraving your wedding ring will not weaken the metal. Professional engravers use delicate techniques that etch your special message without affecting the ring’s structural integrity. That said, always go with reputable jewelers for your precious rings. After all…it’s a symbol of your everlasting love!

Wedding Ring Engraving Ideas From Real Brides

We asked a few brides in our group what they were planning on having engraved on their wedding rings. When getting their answers, we noticed that most people doing engraving were going with something personal and meaningful to them.

Here are a couple of the responses:

  • We did “Better Together” and our date. We always say it’s better as long as we have each other.
  • My partner and I have got ours engraved with “Always” because it is what we have always said to each other from our first date (And we both love Harry Potter)
  • I did “You’re my favorite deputy” and our wedding date because our favorite movie to watch together is Toy Story, and my husband is a police officer.
  • Me and my fiancé have a thing where I say I love you more, and he says I love you most. So we are having those engraved on each other’s rings.
  • My fiancé and I have said “I love you forever and always” every night before we fall asleep for the entire time we’ve been together, so we got “forever and always” engraved on both of our wedding bands.
  • We did the name of our first dance song! “Forever and ever, AMEN”
