5 Unique Wedding Rings Choices That Are Daringly Different

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Who says wedding rings need to be platinum and diamond? Of course, platinum and diamond wedding rings are beautiful. However, there are plenty of other ring options out there that can be just as special.
If you are thinking that buying a diamond ring is an age-old wedding tradition, then think again. De Beers, the diamond mining company, cooked up the idea back in the 1940s. After decades of successful marketing, people now believe that diamonds are a wedding essential. But are they really?
If you are like me, a person who prefers innovative and edgy items, then a traditional-looking ring might not be the right fit for you. You need something that looks unique in a crowd of similar (read all the same) wedding rings.

To help you get a ring that’s as special as you are, check out these 5 unique wedding rings that are truly different but traditional enough not to scare you off.

Wedding Ring Tattoos

Who says that you need a ring of metal around your finger? It’s your wedding you can do pretty much do whatever you want.

One of the recent trends is ditching the metal ring altogether and getting a tattoo that looks like a ring. This option is super handy for everyone who does any kind of manual labor and needs to take off their ring often. Ring avulsion being a very real danger, these tattoos help people stay safe. Sure, you don’t get to exchange rings, but you do get an awesome experience going to the tattoo parlor together.

Some couples even choose to get the impression of their actual wedding rings tattooed on their fingers. That way they get the best of both worlds.

Carbon Fiber Wedding Rings

Say what? Their non-metallic construction makes carbon fiber rings hypoallergenic. Even if you are not allergic to metal, you have to agree that wearing carbon fiber anything is extremely cool. :)

This material goes into making components for supercars, spaceships, and satellites because they are extremely durable and lightweight. So, hyper-geeks rejoice!

These rings have a typical dark grey color and are available in both glossy or matte finishes.

Non-Diamond Wedding Rings

There is no denying that diamonds are extremely popular choices for wedding rings. Therefore, if you want something different you need to find something a bit more unique.

Thankfully, there are plenty of colorful gemstones to choose from that are not diamonds. From lab-made deep blue sapphires to the sparkling green of a natural peridot stone, you will have plenty of choices if you decide to get a stone that’s not diamond.

Wooden Wedding Rings/ Rings with Wooden Inlays

Wooden rings are especially popular wedding ring choice for men. These rings have beautiful wooden inlays encased within a metal ring. The contrasting nature of wood and metal is what makes these rings look unique. If you want to shake things up, buy a set of wood inlay rings and use it as your wedding band.

Ceramic Wedding Rings

Ceramic rings have a unique look and feel. Contrary to belief, they are extremely durable. They also have a typical sheen that matches the shine of expensive porcelain items. Now, because ceramic holds on to paint really well, these rings are available in bright colors. 

So, how about a pair of bright red ceramic rings for your wedding? If that’s too out there you can always pick pitch black wedding rings made from ceramic.
What was (will be) your ring option? :)
