There are times when a name, date, or short phrase just don't sum up everything you want to say or commemorate on a ring. If you find yourself struggling to decide what you should put on your ring and what you should sacrifice then you might want to consider a graffiti style layout. All that means is the space on a wide ring is filled with lots of twisting and turning text in a variety of fonts... and of coarse a splatter of diamonds to boot!
Stumped on what you can put on a graffiti ring and keep the design fun, interesting, and meaningful? Here are some examples of the variety of information and design elements you can put on the rings to fill them up:
- Names / Initials of Spouse, Kids, Loved Ones
- Nicknames / Pet Names
- Cute sayings or inside jokes by kids or your sweetheart
- Important dates
- Big achievements and accomplishments
- Significant Locations
- Geographic Location Coordinates
- Hometown city and state names
- Area and zip codes
- Heritage, Nationality, Country
- Zodiac Signs
- Religious / Scripture / Inspirational Quotes
- Goals or Motivational Phrases
- Powerful words
- Birthstones and diamonds
- Symbols or Filler Marks ( dots - dashes- asterisks )
- Text in different languages
- Dates in Roman Numerals
- Raised Accent Shapes
So with so many different options where do you start? The best thing to get rolling is to start with a focus. For example I want to design a ring that celebrates our relationship from the beginning until now. Once you have that focus start asking yourself some questions. Where did you meet? How did you meet? Where was your first kiss? What do you adore about the love of your life? What do they mean to you?
Once you get some answers then chose the way you would like to have it personalized on the ring from one of the options on the list. If your first date was at Captains Cove in Bridgeport, CT you could write that location out completely, portions of it, or just put the coordinates. You could put the date it happened in Roman Numerals. Have fun with it, adding variety as you go along, and you will create a wide ring that will be cherished for generations. As always, if you need help just give us a ring and we can help you design one over the phone with live instant mock-ups of what your design will look like.
