Due to the small size of wedding rings you usually need to keep your engraving message under a certain number of characters. We cap ours at 24 but there is some wiggle room if we opt for a smaller font, or if you have a larger finger size.

Different methods of engraving offer different options for what is possible. For example, machine engraving is limited to the Qwerty keyboard with some possibilities for characters with accents etc. Laser engraving however is much more precise and has a broader range of potential. With the laser you can have images such as chess pieces, crowns, or something personal which relates to your shared hobbies and interests.
