The 7 Most Romantic Inscriptions for your Platinum Wedding Band

“With this ring… I thee wed.” Hearts fill, tears well up, the band strikes in song, and confetti flies all around! Everyone says your wedding day is a whirlwind – but your wedding ring is the symbol you take along with you for the rest of your life. Here’s how to set your ring apart from the rest and create a lasting reminder of that special day: add a romantic inscription that’s just for the two of you.

Try thinking of different phrases to engrave on your platinum wedding band. Maybe it’s a brief song lyric that reminds you of your spouse-to-be, a playful nickname, or a quick love quote from your favorite poet. Remember: there isn’t much room on your ring (depending on the size and style), so you’ve got to keep it short! Your inscription can usually range from 15-30 characters– that’s more than 100 characters less than a tweet! So be sure to ask your jeweler’s opinion and come with a few different options. Even just a few words that are unique to your relationship will be meaningful.

Whether you’re an incurable romantic or more down-to-earth, we’ve found seven romantic inscriptions sure to make you smile every time you look down at your ring.

“We loved with a love that was more than love”– Edgar Allan Poe, “Annabel Lee”

For the couple with a truly indescribable connection. This is such a passionate sentiment, and there’s also something to say about the nostalgia this quote might bring – like the first time you said “I love you” and looked up and knew it was for always.

June 20, 2015 or june twentieth twenty fifteen or XX-VI-MMXV (the date of your nuptials)

For the couple who loves to celebrate. A simple date – it could be your wedding anniversary, engagement day, the first day you met, or another day significant to your relationship. Added bonus: it doesn’t hurt to wear an anniversary reminder on your hand!

“Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic” – Frida Khalo

For the couple with stars in their eyes. You inspire and encourage one another to reach your goals, professionally and emotionally. And like magic, your inscription on a platinum wedding band will be there forever. Platinum doesn’t wear away over time, making it the perfect metal to use when you’re getting an inscription in your ring.


“When I saw you I fell in love; and you smiled because you knew” – William Shakespeare

For the couple who had love at first sight. You just might fall head over heels again for this romantic Shakespeare inscription on your platinum wedding band.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply” – Pablo Neruda, “XVII”

For the couple from different backgrounds, or the ‘odd couple.’. That you met and fell in love with one another might seem completely serendipitous, and somehow it works. A bit of a longer quote, this famous line from Pablo Neruda’s 100 Love Sonnets could be split onto two rings. When you bring them together as you hold hands, the words are reunited again, simply.

“Joie sans fin” (Translation: “Joy without end” – French proverb)

For the couple who travels together. You’ve summered in France, trekked Peru’s Machu Picchu, or cruised the Caribbean – selecting a quote in another language captures the adventurous nature of your relationship and the true joy found in these shared experiences.

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same” – Emily Brontë

For the couple who clicks. Maybe you can’t read each other’s minds, but you can definitely communicate across the room without words. You work so well together; it’s a soulmate level match made in heaven.
