 Okay, so the original post was 41 ideas but I just felt that left it very incomplete. With that said I went back through some orders and made a list of 99 of the actual engravings we have done for customers. I have excluded any that have full names but have included the ones with initials.

As I went through all these orders I realized that by far names and dates were the most common but I hope you enjoy some of these promise ring and wedding bands engravings that seemed a little different.

"I Love You"

This engraving was the most common. This is commonly accompanied with the heart symbols or dates.

"Always & Forever"

This was right there as the most common. This one also is commonly used with names or dates.

"To My Future Wife Xo"

I thought this was a great statement..

"Para siempre" 


This means "forever" in Spanish.

Thick and Thin

A nice statement, I'm surprised we don't see this one more often.

You’re my sunshine

This one is actually used pretty often.

My Peterpan

Unique, I have only seen this one once.

I love you My Nerd

Same as above, inside sentiments are great and unique.

Love you to the moon

We see this one across the board for engravings.


A slight twist on the I love you.

Forever My CCL

Not sure what this one means.

I promise...
