The tradition of engraving romantic verses onto wedding rings finds its roots in the courts of ancient Europe. Today, inscribing a message on the inside of the ring is one of the most popular ways to personalize an engagement ring.
You need to request to your jeweler upon ordering the ring. It is because, if your jeweler cannot manage it, you have time to get it done from elsewhere. It is mandatory to carefully inspect the spelling of the inscription requested before you hand it to the engraver, and when you receive it.
It depends upon the length and complexity of your desired inscription. Therefore, it could take half an hour or even a month.
If you are unable to curb your emotions in a few characters, then consider inscribing the message around the stone’s rim itself. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) can laser-engrave a microscopic graphic or message that is visible only with the magnifying glass, and could well be a romantic secret between you and your partner.
What It Costs
The cost typically centers around the number of characters, the font, and whether it will be inscribed by a machine or a hand. Machine engraving costs about $15 to $25 for a word compared to $75 for 8 hand-engraved characters.
