What Should I Engrave?

Over the years, one of the most often asked questions we receive is what can our customers engrave on our personalized jewelry. Aside from name necklaces and monogram accessories, we have a wide assortment of engravable jewelry, including jewelry for moms, men, and even love jewelry. You can write a name, a date, a word, or even a small phrase. Whether you are looking to find something meaningful to put on a piece of jewelry for yourself or as a gift to someone, the truth is we all can use some inspiration every now and then.

Books, music, movies, and poetry often make for great locations to look for the perfect word or phrase to engrave. And aside from words and phrases you can do lucky numbers, birthdays, anniversaries, or any date that holds some kind of significance to the wearer. Sometimes the symbolism of the item itself can lead to ideas. For example, many people love to put dates and initials on our infinity jewelry products. If your love for someone is infinite, choose an infinity necklace or infinity bracelet and engrave the name of the special someone to keep with your always, the date you first met or got married, or even your initials "+" the person's! For moms, the answer is usually simple - engrave the names of their children. We have a nice selection of some really lovely family tree necklaces, for example! The possibilities are endless!

Here are some great ideas we came up with!

For the literary fiend: Call Me Ishmael

For the movie buff: We'll Always Have Paris

For the adventurer: I've Got a Feeling We're Not in Kansas Anymore

For the hopeless romantic: Love Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry

For someone going away: I'll Be Back

And if you are obsessed with Shakespeare:
- Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
- Love All, Trust Few, Do Wrong to None
- It is a Risk to Love
- A Rose By Any Other Name

Take a look at a few of these examples!
