- A Hidden Gem
A thoughtful detail made for your eyes only, adding a birthstone or favorite gem on the inside of the band will add yet another sentiment to your engagement ring.
- A Hidden Fingerprint
A sweet personalization of your fingerprint on the inside of the band she will feel every time she puts on her ring.
- An Engraving
A hidden message that only you two know is there, a sweet note, coordinates of where you met, or the date of your wedding are all great ideas of engravings for the inside of the band.
- Consider her profession
Her ring should match her lifestyle and what she realistically wants to wear on her hand every day. If your bride-to-be is a nurse, she will most likely need something low profile so she can put gloves without it getting in the way.
- Customize the gallery or inside of the ring
These areas often go overlooked on rings. The gallery or inside of the ring is a blank palette where a custom detail can be added and can capture a memory and add extra sentiment. For example, one of my customers said “I love you” for the first time in Northern Ireland at a special place called The Dark Hedges. We created a beautiful motif of the dark hedges underneath the setting. Every time she puts her ring on, she remembers that special day.
