Silicone rings continue to explode in popularity for several reasons, and a major one for many buyers is their versatility in expression. Silicone rings are perfect for a huge variety of uses, from traditional engagement or wedding band concepts to many other types of fashion statement you might consider making, and this is a big part of why they're so popular.
At Enso Rings, we offer a wide selection of silicone rings for you or any special person in your life, and we also offer an additional service we're often asked about: Ring engraving. Some are unsure whether silicone rings can be engraved -- the answer is an emphatic yes, with engraving options available for any need you have, whether it's a significant other, a child, an important day or any other concept you're interested in.
What are some of the top reasons for engraving a silicone ring, and why should you leave this process to our professionals? Here's a basic primer.
Why Engrave a Silicone Ring?
There are several great reasons you might consider adding engravement to any silicone ring, whether it's for you or someone else. For one thing, sometimes a more traditional ring just doesn't make sense or fit the lifestyle you have. If you're an athlete, for example, and regularly do 'extreme' sports where a traditional metal band isn't always appropriate, silicone rings are perfect because they can stand up to almost anything.
Here are some of the people or situations silicone rings will often be engraved for:
Significant others: Husbands and wives of all stripes are seeing silicone engagement rings as a fantastic alternative to traditional metal bands, but this also works well for couples or people looking for something other than what they're traditionally accustomed to. And for those who want to go outside the box just a bit, engraving this ring with a wonderful message or some other expression of love and special feelings can make for a great surprise.
Childhood finger: Kids will often outgrow their rings, and this means that parents who want to memorialize important days in their child's life might want to consider engraving the rings with information or wording that is especially meaningful. This can also be a way to celebrate every birthday or other special occasion for your child, making these rings something that can be treasured and remembered in years to come.
Events and other reminders: In other cases, clients engrave silicone rings to serve as reminders of an important date, such as a wedding anniversary or even special event like their child's first home run. This can be especially useful if you're looking for an affordable gift they'll always have with them and enjoy.
Sports: Silicone rings might not seem like the best choice for athletic competition, but athletes often wear these bands because they don't interfere with any activity or do damage to other people when contact happens. Silicone is flexible and can stand up to a great amount of wear, so this is another fantastic choice for athletes who don't want to worry about their ring being damaged or in the way. And for that especially passionate athlete or sports fan in your life, engraving with a favorite sports team is a fantastic outlet.
For inspiration: Finally, some people choose to engrave a silicone ring simply to inspire themselves or to help them grow a little bit every day. This is a fantastic option for anyone looking for daily inspiration and motivation, and it's also perfect for organizations that want to promote positive messages about growth and change.
Leave Silicone Ring Engraving to the Pros
At Enso, we're happy to offer engraving for any ring and design concept you're considering. We strongly advise against attempting this process on your own if you do not have specific training, for several reasons:
Incorrect tool usage: Engraving a silicone ring involves the need for specified engraving tools and specific training, because not all bands are the same and a sharp tool can damage or otherwise ruin your ring.
Incorrect messaging: This is another risk of attempting to engrave silicone rings on your own, as it's possible you'll use an incorrect message or phrase that has personal implications you didn't intend.
Increased injury risk: Engraving on your own increases the potential of causing harm to yourself, especially if you use incorrect tools or messages.
Ring damage: Attempting to engrave a silicone ring without the proper tools is also highly likely to damage it in some way that makes it either unusable or otherwise reduced in value and function.
Tearing the ring: Many DIY ring engraving attempts lead to tears and ripped bands, which can only be repaired by a certified professional.
Voiding warranty: Finally, attempting your own engraving will often void the warranty that comes with the ring, and this is especially true when you alter the design or bands in any way.
Rather than expose yourself to these risks, count on our team of experienced engravers to bring you the exact design you like, all for an affordable price and without any risk to your warranty.
