Wedding Rings with a Unique Twist

There are so many options for the couple that wants to symbolize their marriage commitment with a ring, but are looking for something other than a traditional wedding band. My husband finds most rings uncomfortable, and we also did not want a typical gold/silver wedding band, so we decided to look for non-traditional rings. After researching rings for several months, we still couldn’t make a decision before the wedding. We gave up, knowing that we would find the perfect wedding rings when the time was right. After our wedding, my husband ended up purchasing a pair of beautiful native Alaskan rings on a business trip to Anchorage, which we decided to wear as our wedding bands. Below are a few of the sellers I discovered on Etsy.com during my extensive search.

Artisan Impact has a three Etsy shops with amazing, handcrafted rings. I love the way they combine materials and textures. They also offer unisex bands for the couple that wants matching rings.

Wood is a wonderful, often eco-friendly alternative to precious metal and is also quite affordable. There are many sellers on Etsy that make lovely wooden bands, often combined with other materials. My sister and her husband purchased the Corian and wood bands and they are so lightweight and comfortable.

You can get almost any design etched onto a band, for a unique custom look. If you love nature, you can find rings imprinted with leaves or bark.

I’m in love with the work of New Zealand based jewelry designer Ashley Hilton. The Art Deco Rose band was one of the rings I was considering.

With these custom Fingerprint Wedding Bands, you get your fingerprints imprinted on to the inside of the ring. What a perfect way to feel even more connected to your spouse!
