Are you ready to create something custom and creative? We love the custom engraved jewelry trend that is making waves across social media these days. It's part of why we’re so excited to offer custom engraved QALO options. Sometimes, knowing that you can customize an item is only half of the process. Now you have to decide exactly what you’re going to engrave. Here are a few tips and ideas to keep in mind.\n\n1. Keep it Simple\nYour custom engraved QALO has space for up to 12 characters. This may change slightly depending on the shape and design of your ring. Some rings have less space for engraving than others. Why is this important? Because 12 characters isn’t a lot. Give your customization serious thought before ordering. Consider abbreviations, shorthand, or initials instead of full sentences.\n2. Mix it Up!\nAs we mentioned, some rings have different amounts of space for customization. If the shape or color that you want won’t give you the design parameters you need, try playing with our online customization tool to look at different shapes and colors to find the perfect combination to create the look that you want.\n3. A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words\nIf you can’t make words work, focus on images. We offer six different visual designs that can be as just as creative and moving as words can. From mountain ranges and frees to wood grain and polka dots, find the design that moves you!\n4. Double Check for Accuracy\nWe’ll double check our work, and we ask you to do the same. Before you hit “Add to Cart,” make sure that you’ve checked for spelling and grammatical errors. Since so many of our customers use shorthand or abbreviations in their customizations, if something is spelled incorrectly, we’ll assume it’s on purpose.\n5. Be Patient!\nSince every custom ring is, well, custom made, it takes a bit longer to get your custom creation to you. You can plan on giving us 7-10 days to create your masterpiece, and then another 1-8 day for shipping depending on the shipping speed that you choose at checkout.\n\nReady to get creative?
