Unique Wedding Bands and Engagement Rings: With This Ring
Wedding season is in full tilt, and brides and grooms everywhere are searching for ways to make their day special. Unusual venues, over-the-top cocktail hours, and choreographed dance mobs are all changing up the traditional exchanging of vows. Consider making a one-of-a-kind choice that is truly everlasting by selecting a unique wedding ring. While a wedding only lasts for one day, your marriage—and a unique engagement ring or wedding band—will last a lifetime. Here are a few ideas about how to make your wedding ring extraordinary.
Unique Wedding Rings
The wedding ring, the omnipresent representation of your loving union, is a great place to express your individual personality and style. As you’ll see, there are endless ways to create your dream unique wedding ring.
Add colored gemstones to your band. Sapphire wedding rings of any hue make an enduring and special choice that hold up well to everyday wear. They pair well with diamonds, work in a variety of settings, and also stack beautifully with other bands (think anniversaries!). Consider choosing a ring that features your partner’s birthstone as a heartfelt way to celebrate your love. Make a beautiful statement by choosing to live in color!
Focus on the details. Gone are the days when engagement and wedding rings must be perfectly matched. Many brides embrace the opportunity to marry two different but complementary styles when designing an overall wedding set. Instead of wearing them flush together on one finger, some brides decide to wear their rings on different hands, opening up a world of possibilities in terms of style. Some brides are drawn to wedding rings that showcase intricate design details, such as a floral- or nature-inspired motif, an elaborate pattern, dual tone precious metals, or special symbols that honor heritage. You can also explore one-of-a-kind antique wedding bands that truly stand out from the crowd.
Make it custom. Of course, one way to ensure uniqueness is to create a custom-designed wedding ring.

Create a twist on a classic style. If you find a ring you that you really like, make it “yours” by combining or changing style elements. Substitute the gem of your choice, change the finish (from high polish to matte, or vice versa, or add a fine detail like engraving or milgrain (microbeads).
Rose gold is a popular precious metal choice for brides seeking a distinctive, unique twist on a classic style. The alluring pink hue of rose gold helps any wedding ring to stand out from the crowd, but its soft, warm hue is particularly suited for sophisticated modern wedding rings or romantic, vintage inspired rings.
While many brides prefer the seamless look of matching a rose gold wedding ring with a rose gold engagement ring, mixing metals has become an increasingly popular trend in 2013. For a bold look, consider a white gold engagement ring paired with a rose gold wedding ring.
Personalize it. For a meaningful and personal touch, many wedding rings can be engraved. You can engrave your wedding band—inside or out—with your wedding date, a few lyrics from ‘your song,’ your new monogram, a special saying, or even a fingerprint. Creating a fingerprint ring is the best way to make a ring 100% unique. This is an amazing and stylish way to celebrate your partner’s individual identity. You can have a print on the inside of the ring as a secret message, a print on the outside of the ring as a unique design, or combine your prints as a representation of your union. There is no wrong way to personalize your unique wedding ring!
