Getting married is such an exciting time in life. Planning the wedding involves making a lot of choices, and you may find yourself preferring a more non-traditional route. This could be particularly true if you’re not exactly interested in the usual fare offered up for wedding band sets. You’re going to have to wear it for the rest of your life – unless you “upgrade” from time to time, but who wants to do that?
If you’re looking for something that’s a little off beat and a little more you, here are some suggestions for where you start.
Look for Deco
Particularly if you’re not wanting to spend a lot of money on your wedding band sets, you might want to look for a solitary diamond ring with a band that features filigree or engraving to provide visual interest. The filigree and engraving can actually do a much better job at making the diamond stand out as opposed to it being flanked by other diamonds. Engravings are also a fabulous way to spice up the look of wedding bands without going overboard and outshining the engagement ring.
Ditch the Traditional Diamonds
If you’re looking for something that’s even less traditional, you might want to look at stones other than your traditional diamond. Black diamonds are very popular, as are blue diamonds, but you don’t have to stay within the diamond family. Rubies, sapphires, and emeralds all look fabulous in the proper setting and cut.
Different and Mixed Metals
You can also look at rings that feature a variety of metals. There are wedding band sets that beautifully incorporate silver and gold together for an eye-catching, non-traditional design element. Another gold to look into is Black Hills Gold. This gold comes in a few different colors, and the designs made with this gold show it off to its absolute best. There are alternative metals you can look into as well, including Tungsten Carbide, which is not only durable, but also affordable, and offers a great dark black look to the ring.
The options are practically endless once you decide to step away from the traditional wedding band offerings to be had at the jewelry store. Don’t hesitate to search online and even have one custom-made for you and your spouse-to-be – the more unique, the better, right?
Non-traditional wedding band sets are not only unique and often more affordable, they are also a great way to capture your personality and relationship in one piece of jewelry.
