Do you love your Harley Davidson motorcycles? If so, you’re likely marrying another rider. Why not turn your passion into the symbol of your passion for each other with a Harley Davidson engagement ring? Be off on your way and hit the open road wearing your double-love on your fingers.
Harley style rings come in a variety of unique and creative designs. Options include:
- Metals: Harley Davidson rings are available in many different metals, including silver, gold, titanium, and stainless steel. Even more specialized rings may include reinforced leather accents.
- Thickness: Because of the bulky design of the Harley Davidson logo, these rings are generally thicker than most traditional wedding bands. Narrower designs may use less detailed logos or other Harley-related elements.
- Stones: Diamonds are a popular accent for Harley wedding rings, particularly to accent the company logo. Some designs may also use diamonds on the ring band, and more delicate designs can use small Harley accents surrounding a central stone such as a colored diamond or topaz in the classic Harley shade of orange.
- Accents: While the official Harley shield logo is the most popular accent for these themed wedding rings, other choices include eagles, wings, flames, skulls, or bikes.
You can get custom made Harley engagement rings or find some excellent models already made online as well as in custom Harley jewelry shops. Needless to say, even when it comes to all things Harley Davidson, not all engagement rings are right for all people. So you have to consider some things first as you go shopping.
First, there is the price to be paid. So, take into consideration what you can afford, and then from there consider the metals used, the workmanship, the simplicity or intricacy of the Harley engagement rings that you want.
Now, consider the practicalities of your lifestyle: when you’re often heading out on the highway, riding hard, you don’t want expensive rings than be easily tarnished, scratched, or sullied. You want durable rings made of, perhaps, a less precious but tougher metal. Even if you typically wear riding gloves, you still need to consider how much protection from wind and weather you want to give to your symbols of your love and forthcoming union. So, you should probably consider titanium, silver, gold, platinum, or stainless steel engagement rings if you know you’re going to be more at home when you’re on the "fly". What’s more, consider that these rings are usually thicker than other engagement rings, again for toughness but also because the Harley Davidson logo, if used, is quite bulky. For less bulk, consider other Harley symbols: generic cycles, eagles, wings, flames, skulls, and serpents.
Consider Harley engagement rings seriously if you are quite certain that you’ll always be riders. (The same goes for your wedding rings, too). You don’t want to spend a lot of money on something that, in the future, you’ll not be all that proud of or not feel any connection to. Especially if you are very young (under 35), think twice before you decide to go with the Harley engagement rings. On the other hand, Harley Davidson engagement rings can be very inexpensive compared to other types since many of them are made more for nice-looking durability than "fire and glitter" (although diamonds are popular in Harley engagement rings), so if you won’t be spending too much money and you think that even if you stop riding you’ll at least always enjoy the memories, then go ahead and take a chance and live for today!
Also, be patient. Harley engagement rings won’t be as easy to find as most other types, since they are appealing to a narrow segment of the market (it probably shocks you that not everyone is a motorcycle rider, and of those not all of them are Harley Davidson riders).
The Franklin Mint, Adventure Harley Davidson Jewelry, Syd Curtis Designs, Doc’s Harley Davidson, and Josten’s are some of the very best Harley Davidson engagement ring makers and sellers, and they all have good websites.
