Military Rings are custom made to proclaim a soldier’s loyalty and pride to the branch they serve with. The rings are a declaration of unity among a group of soldiers. For veterans they evoke memories of times when they were active and campaigns they fought in. Many of our soldiers are very proud to wear custom made deployment rings for Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. The two of the most popular campaigns in recent decades.
Custom Military Rings
Not every soldier wears a military ring, but if they are going to wear a military piece of jewelry, then custom military rings are the preferred option. The reason for this is simple. The rings can be custom made in traditional style and be personalized with details relevant to the soldier. The custom military rings allow you to display details of your service. and are truly a badge of honor.
It was in 1835 that the original military ring was worn at West Point. Since then the tradition of wearing these custom military rings has spread throughout all branches of the Armed Forces. The ring was sometimes worn on the left hand because it was closest to the heart. But today the majority of people wear it on the right hand especially if they are married.
How To Design Military Rings For All Branches
Our advice to you is to get a pen and paper and write down what you want on your ring. Make a list of details and dates, units or divisions you served with over the years. List the campaigns and deployments that you served on. List the combat zones you fought in. When you have the list made, you will probably see that you have more than would fit on a small ring.
The next step is to extract from your list the important details that you would like to display on your military ring. Names, dates and rank can be engraved above the emblem you select for the sides. Remember to select different emblems for both sides as the company can’t put the same emblem on the two sides.

This is an important area of custom military rings. On each side of the rings there is an area for displaying text in the space provided. On men’s rings, you can have two lines of text.
