Creating A Personalized Wedding Ring
When you have an overwhelming love for one another and want to marry, you need a custom design wedding ring to cement the deal. Luckily there are a number of jewelers on the internet as well as your local area that offer options for creating a personalized wedding ring that will best mark the occasion of becoming man and wide.
Narrowing your Options
First of all, when you choose to go with a personalized wedding ring for each other, you must decide whether or not you want them to be a matching set. There is no rule that says it has to be so rely on your personal preference in regards to this aspect of narrowing your options for the ring. Perhaps each of you has special names or messages for one another that you would want to incorporate into the personalized wedding ring.
The next factor in choosing your rings relies on what those special messages, names or personal touches you want incorporated.
Your personalized wedding ring could have simple engraving on the inside of the band with the wedding date or some other special message. Or, you could be more elaborate and choose a special inlay in the band in a contrasting metal or even gemstone that spells out a message.
Keep in mind that the more elaborate your message or engraved inscription, the more the price will be for your personalized wedding ring. Of course, the gemstones, type of metal used and the labor involved in its creation will play into the overall cost as well. Many jewelers these days that specialize in personalized wedding rings offer a few main design prototypes that you can then customize, based on different “extras,” sort of like an a la carte menu.
It’s All in the Interpretation
The use of certain materials can also play a big part in purchasing a personalized wedding ring as they could be symbolic of certain principles in your relationship.
For instance, while not as traditional as gold, platinum or even titanium could be a great choice in metals for your wedding ring because they are strong and long-lasting, the same qualities you feel embodies your relationship.
As far as the stone is concerned in your personalized wedding ring, a diamond is viewed as classic and timeless. Less conventional stones like amber are as old as time (after all it is a fossil!) and the ruby sometimes signify happiness, health and good fortune. It’s all a matter of interpretation is some instances when it comes to your ring and shows your forethought and planning in choosing a special piece of jewelry to symbolize your union to your loved one.
