Love - Engagement, Wedding and Anniversary Engraving Ideas

Short Love Themed Engravings - one or two words

Medium Love Themed Engravings - Three to four words
This is the perfect size for standard rings, lockets and I.D. bracelets. You can get more personal, add an inside joke that only you and the one you love will understand or hint at your true feelings.

Long Love Themed Engravings - Five or more words
You can use longer engravings for I.D. bracelets or non-jewelry items like watches, business card holders, frames, banks, or any metal keep sake.
