Alternative Wedding Bands For The Non-Traditional Couples

28/10/2021

Every wedding ring is special, and most couples want theirs to embody their personal values, memorable dates and other significant details. Sometimes, a traditional wedding band just won’t do. You will also be looking at your wedding band every day, so it’s best to choose something that is an extension of your personality and represents your love story.

If you consider yourself a non-traditional bride, then you’re definitely looking for more than just a simple wedding band. A ring that is as unique as you is just what you need. When you think outside of the box, there are ways for you to find something less typical and more authentically you. Here are some tips on finding wedding rings that fit your unique style.

Make a statement with gold

While a yellow gold ring is often the traditional choice, white or rose gold is often ideal for those with a contemporary taste. You can also consider a combination of metal colours for a two-tone look or different finishes like matte or patterned.

In recent years, jewellers have also started offering a wide range of styles to cater to diverse tastes. Take time to explore different designs and unique shapes to see what appeals to you. From asymmetrical modern designs to bold and distinctive motifs, there is a ring out there for everyone.

Non-matching ring sets

Everyone has their preferences, so don’t feel pressured to decide on a matching set. Explore different options to see what you like that showcases your individual personality and style. At the same time, select a piece that symbolises your love and reflects your taste as a couple.

You can also decide on complementary rings such as two rings of different styles with identical metals or two rings with different metals but similar styles. This way you can agree on individual rings that resonate with you and your partner. And no matter what you choose, it’s important that both of you love the band you will be wearing every day for a lifetime.

Stacking rings are in trend now as they offer versatility and a fashionable look. For instance, you can pair your classic solitaire engagement ring with a one-of-a-kind band to make a beautiful statement. The rings should be strategically chosen so they can stack together in a unique and cohesive way. Of course, it’s a personal preference whether you wish to complement or contrast the look.

Stacking rings come in a variety of styles, and they often feature delicate bands and solitaire diamonds. Play around with a more elaborate stacking ring look or something more minimalist, using a range of textures, materials, stones and shapes.
