Have you heard of an imprint ring? It’s a wedding ring with a lasting impression…

With many high profile figures such as Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger and other celebrities cheating on their partners, infidelity is hot gossip in the world news and entertainment. Perhaps, if they wore an imprint ring, they would have thought twice before making headlines for all the wrong reasons?

Available on the website, The Cheeky, the ‘anti-cheating ring’ is an imprint ring with the phrase ‘I’m married’ imprinted backwards on the inside of the ring. When the wearer puts the ring on, the phrase will be imprinted onto their finger the right way around, so when they take off their ring, their true marital status is exposed – whether or not they are playing away, or have just managed to forget to put it on after doing the washing up.

imprint-ringWith the wedding ring being the symbol of your eternal love and commitment to your partner, isn’t this completely missing the point? Does buying a wedding ring that imprints the phrase “I’m married” on to a partner’s finger automatically show that there could be a trust issue? Would it even work to discourage cheating?

There are other imprint ring designs on the market that haven’t been labelled by the website; including a small heart, or the customised imprint of a partner’s fingerprint. The small heart reminds us of Katie Waissel’s engagement tattoo. But is the idea of taking off a wedding ring and having any sort of imprint just a deterrent to prevent infidelity? Or is it just a fun idea for a symbol of permanent love?

Would you be interested in an imprint ring for yourself or your partner? Do you see it as a quirky touch? Or do you see it as a trust issue?

  1. No i think it means theres a trust issue there. Why would ur husband or wife need to have an imprint on their
    Finger to say they are married? It says that the vows they took didnt mean anything special. My h2be always wears his engagement ring and will always wear his wedding ring and im the same. We are making a serious commitment to each other. If you love your partner, u shouldnt be needing an imprint on your finger to keep others away.

  2. I don’t like it as a cheating deterrent, but I do like the idea of a ring that leaves an imprint on your finger. I would like a ring that leaves a heart on my finger!

  3. If it comes down to this then what is the point of getting married? I’ve actually taken my ring at the moment because of a sweat mark thats causing the skin to peel off…GROSS!!! But anyone asks I would say that I’m married and I’ve just taken it off for the said reason.That said its already left a band mark across my finger so I’ve kind of got one already LOL! Just shown this to hubby and he has said the same thing…if you can’t trust eachother or have the mindset not to stay faithful, don’t bother and give your day to people who will.

  4. I think the imprint is a cute way to propose. I talked about this with a coworker and he got one for his girl, well she didn’t know and after 4 more months of dating he took her out to dinner and ask her for the ring back, she was mad til she saw the imprint that said “Marry Me” and then he gave her the engagement ring. To me that is the most romantic proposal. She told me she thought he was cheating on her but she didn’t know he was truly working more hours and meeting up with her family to plan the big night.I wish them the very best.
