Choosing a Jewelry Gift That’s Personal

July 29th, 2009 by wys

Trying to select just the right gift is a situation in which we’ve all found ourselves. We’re all familiar with the stress associated with finding a gift to surprise and delight. It’s no wonder, then, that many people settle on jewelry gifts. Not only are jewelry gifts potential heirlooms, they really tell the recipient that you care. Jewelry you have the ability to personalize, as in the case of personalized rings, have the added benefit of being highly individualized. It truly says to the recipient that it was picked out especially with that person in mind. One of the best ways to personalize a ring is by selecting from a range of engraved rings.

Rings are personalized by engraving in a variety of ways. The first, and most familiar method is engraving an engagement or wedding ring along the inside of the band. You’re dealing with limited space to communicate your message, but the options are only limited by your imagination. Some people have engraved the date of the wedding, or perhaps even the date the couple met. Obviously, if you’re engraving a wedding ring, the wedding date is appropriate. In the case of a promise ring, you might consider engraving the day the couple met or the day they became a couple. One might also consider a special word that describes the couple, or even private nicknames shared by the couple. Even something the couple considers private can be used, since the engraving is done on the inner part of the ring.

Promise rings are really popular among the young who often times aren’t quite ready to get engaged. That does not mean, though, that they are not able to express deep love and commitment. An idea to consider is engraving the names of both parties on the exterior of the promise ring. The addition of gorgeous colored gemstones adds sparkle and beauty to the ring as well.

Personalized rings are not restricted to engraving, although it is the easiest and most cost effective way to make a ring individualized. It’s possible to have gemstones themselves engraved, but this is something fairly specialized that usually requires the stone be sent away. If this appeals to you, though, consult with your local jeweler, who’ll point you in the right direction.

However you choose to personalize your jewelry, there are options aplenty. Engraved rings are a low cost, high impact choice for those who desire a personalized ring.
