When you hear the words "wedding band with birthstone," it sounds very special. It would be wonderful to have a wedding band with your or your partner's birthstone or favorite gemstone. We would like to introduce some recommended ways to put birthstones in wedding rings.
I want a handmade wedding band with a birthstone in it.
When we are offering handmade wedding rings, we are often asked the question, "Can you put a birthstone in the ring?" We sometimes receive the question, "Can you put a birthstone in the ring?
At MITUBACI, birthstones can be placed inside wedding rings.
Here are some recommended ways to include birthstones.
Popular Blue Sapphire Something Blue Wish
Generally, the gemstone in a wedding band is a diamond on the outside of the ring and a "something blue" blue sapphire on the inside of the ring.
A gemstone that is placed inside the ring is also called a secret gemstone.
This is one of the "Something four," a legend that says the bride will be happy.
Something blue is considered to be the color that brings happiness, and it is good to wear one thing that is blue.
Many people follow the "Something Blue" legend and add a blue-colored gemstone, a "blue sapphire," to the secret gemstone.
Blue sapphires are wonderful, but at MITUBACI, we recommend that you put in your favorite gemstone (birthstone) freely to make your handmade wedding ring unique to you, without being particular about "something blue".

How to choose a birthstone for a handmade wedding band
Although it is called a "birthstone," MITUBACI allows you to choose freely regardless of the month you were born in.
1. Insert the birthstone of the other party.
The wedding ring you always wear.
When the birthstone of the partner is placed inside it, there is such a sense of security that "we can always be together even when we are apart.

In this case, of course, you can put your own birthstone.
3, Insert the birthstone of the month of the registry.
How about a jewel for the month of your registry so that you can always remember happy times?
I am sure that the two of you have many precious memories other than the day you joined a registry, such as the day you were proposed to, the day you started dating, or the day you met. Please choose a jewelry that suits you both so that you can always feel those moments.
4, Add birthstones in your favorite color or image of the two of you.
The secret stone is located inside the ring, invisible from the surroundings, and is meant to be a talisman.
You can choose "ruby because I want to put my lucky color, red.
Also, "aquamarine because we both love the ocean," and "orange jewelry because he proposed to me while watching the sunset," all of which were actual cases.
It is also wonderful to include jewelry that evokes the path the two of you have taken together.

The inside of the ring can be engraved as well as the secret stone.
Clasping the couple's birthstones side by side after the engraving of their names and wedding anniversary makes it look as if the couple is cuddling, making it the perfect secret stone for a wedding band.
In addition, the
0 (partner's birthstone) & 0 (your birthstone)

Of course, you can also choose to have only the birthstone without engraving.
