3 ways to personalise your wedding bands for you and your partner
Wedding bands are arguably the most important item of jewellery anyone will ever wear – they’re an ongoing symbol of your love and commitment, and you should be proud to have yours on your finger for many years to come.
It’s therefore essential that when you’re choosing your wedding band that you opt for a design that is both stylish and meaningful, and well suited to both yourself and your partner. If you’re wondering how to create a ring with that unique touch, here are three great ways to personalise your wedding band …
Include a birthstone
One rather romantic way to personalise your wedding band is to include the birthstones of yourself and your partner in the design. Whether you choose to add two single stones, or create a band entirely surrounded by these multi-coloured gems, it’s a great way to add a personal touch to your ring.
Use an heirloom
Using a family heirloom or other piece of antique jewellery as your wedding band is another great way to ensure that your ring is tailored to you. If theirs is a ring that you could use but you’re not fond of its current design, take it along to a jeweller – they may be able to alter the settings or even melt it down and recreate another band altogether. This allows you to maintain the sentimental nature of the band, but still have a ring that suits your style.
Add an engraving
If you want the personal aspect of your ring to be a little more discreet, you could opt for an engraving on the inside of the band. Whether you choose the date of your ceremony, your partner’s name, or any other in-joke or saying, it’s a great intimate addition that will make you smile every time you see it.
