Here are some really creative ways in which you can get custom-made wedding rings from your jeweller…
Engraving and carving special romantic inscriptions on rings apparently first began in the the Middle Ages and during the Renaissance when ‘poesie rings’ were popular. Even Shakespeare had referred to them in his writings. These rings had romantic poetry engraved on them that were supposed to signify promises between couples.
Nowadays, you can get several things engraved on rings. Modern technology allows you to engrave almost everything in a very detailed way using laser.
Some of the things you can consider are:
- Each other’s names
- Significant dates – date of proposal, engagement, wedding etc.
- Song lyrics of your favorite song as a couple – some couples inscribe lyrics beginning on one ring and ending on the other
- Your spouse’s fingerprints are such a different idea. See, every person has a unique set of fingerprints. So imagine the special emotion attached with engraving your BAE’s fingerprints on your ring.
- Signatures of each other
- If you want pictures, and symbols and not letters as such, you can go for that too. An infinity symbol is really popular. If you are both beach lovers, get some waves engraved.
- Each other’s pet names – special terms of endearment you address each other with can also be engraved.
- ECGs! Yes, you read that right! Since you are going to be in each other’s hearts forever, might as well celebrate that! So what happens here is that you get your heartbeat recorded. This recorded heartbeat is then engraved on your ring. And that’s how you carry your lover’s heartbeat with you all the time.
2. Unusual Gemstones
Diamonds are the obvious choice, but you can also choose unusual gems that are meaningful. You can get each other’s birthstones, or your spouse’s favorite color gemstones. Some couples also get the gemstones engraved – even though those inscriptions can only be read under the magnifying glass. You can even get crystals corresponding to chakra healing.
3. Unusual Metals & Materials
Jewelers can make various finishes for wedding rings – not just shiny gold, but color-treated gold, matte gold and so on. You can also have hammered, sand-blasted, pebbled, wire-brushed and so on. Instead of traditional gold (whether it is rose gold or white gold or yellow gold), try platinum, or alloys. Indian traditions put a lot of emphasis on ‘panchdhaatu’ for health. This is an alloy of gold, silver, copper, brass and iron. Rings made of panchdhaatu can be a good idea to personalize wedding rings.
4. Unique Shapes
Seen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s wedding ring? It is a ring, but not typically round. It has a crown-like shape. You can have a unique shape also for your wedding band. Change the plain circular shape with a double-ended ‘open’ ring – the added advantage of this will be that such a ring will be adjustable too.
5. Photo rings
Remember seeing pendants that had photographs of significant people in them? Why not have rings like that? Get your jeweler to make a little window in which you can keep your partner’s picture. The upper surface can of course have an embellishment in the form of a design or a gemstone.
These are only some of the ideas we could think of to create a trend with your wedding ring. Let your imagination and creativity flow freely when you are thinking of unique ideas to personalize wedding rings. Choose something that feels unique to you and your partner. Just follow your heart and emotions. This will be a design that will also delight your wedding photographer who will be able to think of many ways to make the rings almost like a character in your wedding photo album.
