So, you’ve received your Home Try On box from Jordan Jack and tried on your sample men’s wedding rings. You quickly discover The Ring – the one with the perfect look and feel. Now that you’ve chosen your groom’s wedding ring and you’re ready to order, the hard part is over, right? Tap the brakes a bit. You still have options to consider. What about engraving it?


Don’t Put Off Engraving Your Wedding Band

You know yourself. It will never be as easy or convenient to do it later, so you probably won’t ever get it personalized if you don’t do it now. But you’re drawing a blank. You spend your idle moments wondering, “What do I want to write on the inside of my wedding band?” 

In the age of instant messaging where thoughts fade fast, an engraved men’s wedding ring is about as personal and permanent as you can get. By having your wedding band engraved, you have the opportunity to make it a truly unique and lasting symbol of your undying love. 


A Men’s Wedding Band that is Uniquely You

You know who you are, and your wedding ring should reflect that. Are you a hopeless romantic? Consider an inscription dedicating your love. Are you a spiritual person? There’s likely a verse or quote that speaks to that. Do you always have a quip or a funny response? Some of the best jokes are hidden inside of wedding bands. To help get you started, here are the top ten ways you can go with the engraving for your man’s ring and some samples of each:


#1 Go Eternal

True love lasts a lifetime, and what better way to acknowledge that than to engrave a salute to everlasting love inside your groom’s ring? You can’t go wrong with timeless and classic. Some of the best poetry, sayings and thoughts about love focus on the eternal. Choose a classic ring with style that will stand the test of time for these types of engravings. Jordan Jack’s Gold High Polished Milgrain band is a perfect choice.

  • Eternity
  • Our love lasts forever
  • Always yours
  • Forevermore
  • Ever in my heart
  • Together forever
  • Never ending love
  • From this day forward
  • Today and always
  • With you always


#2 Go Fun

If you’re a fun guy and your relationship has always been full of laughter, then celebrate it with an inscription that makes you both smile (If it only makes you laugh, reconsider. It should be funny for both of you.) Life is short, so go ahead and laugh together. A ring with a playful sense of humor like the Black Stainless Steel with Blue Carbon Fiber Band is a good choice if you’re this kind of guy.

  • My first home run


#3 Go Romantic

It’s all about the romance. While feelings come and go, a reminder of your love engraved on your wedding band lasts forever. There’s no limit to what you can do with a romantic thought, and the good news is it can be just a snippet of a thought to be a great ring inscription. Nothing says romance like a classic gold band from Jordan Jack. This one is a perfect choice to inscribe with a romantic sentiment.

  • With all my heart
  • I love you more
  • My one and only
  • My life begins with you


#4 Go Inside Story

Every couple has a special story of their own that makes you both smile. Whether it’s a cute story, something bizarre that happened that turned out to be funny in retrospect, or a funny comment from a relative that turned into an inside joke between the two of you, a nod to that story could be just what you’re looking for as an engraving for your ring. A ring with a hidden contrasting inner band works well with a personal sentiment that’s known only to the two of you.

#5 Go Favorite Song

Sometimes, it has to be said with a song. Think about “your song.” Is there something there that would spark a great inscription? Is there a love song that you have always equated with your fiancée? There are some amazing love songs to look at before you decide. A ring with intricate details is an excellent pairing for song lyrics. Jordan Jack’s Sterling Silver Two Tone Faceted Band works well here.

  • Maybe I’m amazed
  • I will always love you
  • Love me tender


#6 Go Poetry

Poetry can come alive when you’re in love. Capitalize on that energy by selecting a bit of a thought from your favorite love poem. Choose a ring that evokes old-school, timeless love.

  • Higher than the sky

#7 Go Spiritual

When faith is of utmost importance, you can include that element in the inscription you choose for your man’s wedding band. Use a favorite Scripture reference, include a verse that you both consider “your verse,” or choose a religious thought to articulate your love. Jordan Jack’s sterling silver rings are a solid choice for spiritual inscriptions.

Try this:

  • God unite in love
  • I Cor 13
  • Love is faithful
  • God gave me you
  • Made for me
  • Mizpah
  • Mitzvah
  • One heart
  • One life one love
  • Deus Nos Iunxit (God joined us: Latin)
  • I’m my beloved’s
  • Love and forgive


#8 Go Initials & Dates

Remember carving your initials with your love’s? This could be a fun way to engrave your ring, along with the date of your wedding or your first date or the day you met. A diamond band from Jordan Jack pairs well with your one-of-a-kind engraving.
