There are a lot of factors that go into choosing a wedding band. The quality, the materials, the price — they all play a big part in the decision. But what matters most is the emotional connection to the ring. Does it make the bride’s face light up? Does the groom beam with pride when he wears it? When you find the right one, you just know.

Engraving a personalized message of love on the inside of a wedding band makes it you unique to you and your spouse. Your wedding date, special nicknames you have for each other, a sentiment that means a lot to you both — these are just a few engraving examples that can add a special touch to your rings. Yes, an engraved wedding band is a romantic gesture, but it’s also a lasting expression of love between you and your new spouse. Your rings will likely become family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

Engraving and Personalizations Options from Furrer Jacot

Since 1858, in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen, Furrer Jacot has produced made-to-order individually crafted wedding bands and jewelry according to the highest standards of Swiss craftsmanship. The FJ trademark stamped into every piece symbolizes this traditional company’s dedication to and responsibility for the quality and authenticity of the materials used and the workmanship of its products.

Below are the different engraving options offered by Furrer Jacot, as well as a few ideas for what to engrave on your wedding bands.

Hand Engraving: There was a time when all engraving was done by hand, but today the art is known only by a select few. A hand-engraved ring preserves the hand of the artisan, so no matter the message or sentiment, it truly remains one-of-a-kind.

Laser Script or Block Engraving: A laser burns your personal message into the surface of the ring in script or block lettering. This cutting-edge technology provides unsurpassed detail and depth.

A Message in Your Own Handwriting: Take your ring’s customization a step further by engraving your personal message inside your spouse’s wedding band in your own handwriting. The moment they see their wedding band with your handwriting on it, they will know that ring was made just for them.

Speaking of Furrer Jacot, there are few people in the world more qualified to speak on wedding bands than Lucas Ruppli, who’s been Head of Design at Furrer Jacot for the last 25 years. Born in Schaffhausen, a small town in Switzerland famous for its gold and silversmith ateliers, Ruppli spent his childhood collecting gemstones, which ultimately inspired him to become a goldsmith.

We caught up with Mr. Ruppli to get his thoughts on wedding band trends for the year ahead.

What are your favorite wedding band trends for 2016?

Straightforward wedding bands with subtle details are in this year, and so are bands constructed with new and different materials.

How will these trends be incorporated in Furrer Jacot styles?

This year, we are launching our new Furrer Jacot Milgrain Collection. Our milgrain is different than others on the market—it is like a row of small pyramids, which reflect more. At the same time, it is very smooth and elegant.

How have wedding bands and wedding traditions changed over the last 20 years?

Jewelry design is a lot like every other type of design in that trends wax and wane from narrow and thin to wide and heavy and back; from deep yellow gold to white gold and back.

Today, diamonds play a more important role on men’s bands than 20 years ago. Also, men are a bit more adventurous overall in terms of designs and materials. Our Carbon Collection is very popular; it features hand-wound carbon fiber application on precious metals.

Where does your inspiration come from and how does it translate into your designs?

Sometimes I just start drawing, but I usually get my inspiration from nature and architecture. If I am in Japan or in New York, I draw differently, since it has to do with the feelings a place brings out in me. The inspiration for Furrer Jacot’s latest collection, for example, was sports. We used carbon fiber to create something very sporty, contemporary and linear. Therefore, this collection was actually inspired by the new material itself.

What do you most love about bridal jewelry?

Diamonds!

What is your favorite new style or collection this year?

It’s definitely the new Furrer Jacot Milgrain Collection. I think that the twist on this classic design form has turned out to be very attractive on these rings.

What does a man’s wedding band say about his personality?

In order for a wedding band to express a man’s personality, he has to be true to himself. He can’t choose the band according to trends. He must choose the band he loves. If he is daring, his choice should reflect that. If he is a classic guy, then a straightforward, beautifully crafted band will reflect his personality best.

How does someone go about selecting the perfect band?

Lifestyle plays a role. Someone who works with his or her hands or who is a sporty, outdoorsy type will need a stronger band than someone who works mainly in an office. In either case, the band will show some wear and tear after a while, which will only add charm and character.

What advice do you have for young couples choosing their wedding rings?

They should really spend some time together thinking about what their symbol of union and love means to them and then find a style that represents it.

Wedding Band Trends

 

Wedding bands are more than just baubles to be exchanged during your wedding ceremony. They also serve as a symbol of the love you’ll treasure for the rest of your lives. When choosing a wedding band, it’s best to choose a style that looks fresh and stylish, yet will remain timelessly beautiful for years to come.

Eiseman Jewels’ specialists have found that the top bands for grooms in 2014 feature rose gold, yellow gold and black diamonds. Black accents and cutouts are also on the rise, adding unique details to traditional bands. So what makes these rings stand out?

Yellow gold. Classic and chic, yellow gold is a wedding band staple, whether as a simple solid gold band or one accented with diamonds. For men who are going from bare hands to wearing a ring every day for the rest of their life, a yellow gold ring is the perfect transitional piece. It’s simple, elegant and versatile without looking cumbersome or flashy.

Rose gold. Rose gold, also known as pink gold, is yellow gold with a high copper content. Because copper tarnishes over time, rose gold’s subtle and delicate color may intensify with age, much like your love for one another. Eiseman Jewels offers a variety of rose gold rings, including an unusual style with slim rectangular cutouts and raised, larger rose gold rectangles.

Black diamonds and accents. Stand out from the crowd with a black diamond wedding band. Magnificently masculine, black diamonds are among the most rare and expensive diamonds in the world, and they add a touch of exoticism to your band. The color black, whether in a diamond or an accent stripe, will draw eyes to your distinctive band every time you wear it.

 

 

Once you find the ring that will stay on your finger and in your heart forever, don’t forget to have it engraved. Eiseman Jewels can engrave names, dates and short messages inside your band to make these permanent symbols of love even more memorable.

Be sure to stop by or make an appointment with one of our specialists today to choose a special ring for your special day.



When it comes time for you and your spouse to say, “I do,” make sure your rings invoke the specialness you feel on the biggest day of your lives. The beautiful bands will no-doubt shine and glisten, but one way to make these permanent symbols of your union even more memorable is to have the inside engraved with something unique pertaining to your love, wedding day or relationship.

 

Examples of possible personalized engravings include:

Names. Simple, classic and elegant, getting your name engraved on her ring and vice versa is a lovely way to have your other half with you at all times. Nicknames and newly-made monograms are also popular etchings for brides and grooms alike.

Dates. While your wedding date is the most obvious date to inscribe on your ring, it is not the only special date in your relationship to consider. Birthdays, first dates, your engagement date or even the date of something memorable—like a graduation or trip—are all important dates in your lives and can be commemorated on your ring.

Personal notes. Laser etching makes it possible to engrave more than just a few characters on the inside of a narrow band. Song lyrics, love poems or an excerpt of your marriage vows are all inscribable, and add an extra layer of love to your newlywed jewelry.

Memorable places. Remember your first vacation together? What about the address of the first home you both purchased? Or your favorite restaurant, park or site of your first date? These are your special spots. Carrying them with you forever via your gold band is a touching tribute to your journey through love.

If you decide to include any of these meaningful embellishments on your ring, an Eiseman Jewels specialist can help you to get started. And through April 2nd, any Furrer-Jacot wedding band purchased through Eiseman Jewels includes complimentary engraving. It doesn’t get much more personal than that!
