Custom Jewelry Alternatives to the Traditional Wedding Ring

Times are changing and fewer and fewer young couples are choosing traditional wedding ring designs for their big day. Now it is common for couples to search for custom wedding rings that match their personality and style.

Are you curious about what kinds of custom designs are available for your wedding ring?

Check out these creative ideas from around the web:

Unusual Stones

Many couples are turning away from diamonds and looking to colorful stones to adorn their wedding bands. Opals, moonstones, sapphires and other gem stones make great focal points and are often less expensive than a high-end diamond. Plus, you may be able to find a stone that has a special meaning just to you.

This is also a good time to mention the trend toward uncut stones these days. Instead of purchasing a cut and polished diamond, consider a raw stone in all of its natural beauty. This often gives you an asymmetrical fitting and interesting features.

Unusual Materials

Not only are couples changing their take on diamonds, many are also looking at alternative materials for the wedding band. Today you can find custom engagement rings hand carved out of natural woods. You can buy men’s wedding bands with carbon fiber inserts, guitar string inserts and plenty of other hobby-related themes.

Some couples are doing away with stones altogether and opting for intricate metal bands instead. For instance, a thin rose gold ring with a knot or twist on top, or a plain gold band engraved with names and a date. A couple here in the Falls Church/Washington D.C. area even had a favorite saying engraved on the inside of the ring.
