When buying jewellery for your loved one, many people choose to take their gift to the next level by putting their own personal message on it. Jewellery engraving is a popular option for a reason. You can present a meaningful message that your loved one can carry with them for the rest of their lives. It will elevate your gift offering from nice to wonderful.
If you are thinking of engraving your jewellery, what messages can you put on? Having the idea of making your present more meaningful is a lovely thought but not all of us can naturally think of how to put our feelings into words. We want the receiver to be touched emotionally by the token but if we write a simple ‘thinking of you’, it doesn’t convey the depth of emotion that we wish to bestow. Another issue with jewellery engraving is the need for brevity. We can’t use long explanations; we need to sum up what we want to say in the fewest possible words.
Here are some ideas that you can use for your jewellery engraving:
- The best is yet to come
- For All of Time
- Amor Vincit Omnia (Love Conquers All)
- I promise
- My World
- Partners in Crime
- You Complete Me
- My Dreams Came True
These basic ideas may give you some help when deciding on your own message to engrave on the piece of jewellery. The best thing to do is to make it at personal as possible. Highlight something that you both share and has been significant to you. Quoting lines from their favorite films, books or songs may hold a lot of meaning for them so that may be a good option. Pet names make the gesture intimate. If you or your partner have quirky ideas, embrace it. Include something that will be meaningful to the two of you, but others won’t understand. It makes the sentiment special.
Another thing to keep in mind is dates. Capturing a moment is difficult but it is made easy with jewellery engraving. Having a date etched into your chosen piece of jewellery will reassure your loved one that it was as significant to you as it was for them. One thing to keep in mind with this approach is the date. Don’t get the date wrong. Check and re-check that you have the correct details. If you get this part wrong, as you can imagine, the whole gift will be ruined and may end up damaging your relationship.
