When engraving a gift, you want the message to be personal and something the recipient will absolutely adore. It can be difficult to choose the right engraving for your loved one, but with a few ideas you can choose one she will keep and treasure for many years to come.

Matching Engravings

Matching engravings can be a cute and romantic way to personalise jewellery. It is a perfect idea for wedding rings. The rings can either make a complete phrase, such as "forever" on one ring and "and ever" on the other, or "to love" and "to cherish;" or can be a matching pair, such as "peas" engraved on one and "carrots" on the other or "Romeo" and "Juliet."

Funny Engravings

Engravings do not have to be limited to romantic and sentimental; a funny message engraving is a delightful idea. It will remind the recipient of amusing memories and make him smile every time he sees it. If you want something extra personal, an inside joke can be an excellent idea. It could be something as simple as the nickname only you call him or an ongoing private joke you both share.

Latin Engravings

Sometimes you want an engraving that is simple, short and sweet but still has a personal touch. Latin engravings can be a classy way to show your appreciation and love for that special someone. Some examples of engravings might be "Uxori meae," which means "to my wife," or "Amicae meae," which means "to my friend."


If you are struggling to express your feelings into words, choose a meaningful quote for an engraving. It can be a literary quote, movie quote or a quote from a famous person. There are plenty to choose from for any theme you want. If you desire something romantic, a message like "Where there is love there is life" by Gandhi, or "A life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit" by Kahlil Gibran will be a wonderful idea. To spread the gift of joy, engrave a quote about happiness, such as "Happiness often sneaks in through a door you did not know you left open" by John Barrymore.
