Customized Wedding Bands: 5 Beautiful Ideas
1. One Ring, For Life, with a True Love Agreement
Your wedding ring should exemplify your love, honor, fidelity, and commitment to each other. One unique trend that is emerging these days, is that some brave Jewelry shops are putting this upfront as their main goal.
One example, is Darry Ring, a Jewelry shop that has dedicated itself to being a witness to your life-long true love. Yes, you heard me right. These guys have over 400 stores, one located in the famous Louvre Museum in Paris – and their biggest mission, more than selling you a ring – is to make sure you stay committed to your one and only love.
How does DR (the short name for Darry Ring) do that? Well, in a few creative ways. First, they verify your ID and allow only one account – by which they bound you to one family name, forever.
Secondly, and the most exciting element – they make you sign a True Love Agreement! Isn’t that wonderful? I’ve never encountered a Jewelry shop that does that. I personally think it’s a brilliant idea.
This shop doesn’t just sell you a wedding ring, they turn the entire buying experience into a True Love experience, in which they really help you tie an everlasting knot. Isn’t that a unique way to practice life-long true love and express your determination?
2. Textured Wedding Bands
Now, as I delve into the types of customized wedding bands we adore most, textured Wedding rings are definitely among our top favorites.
These rings allow you to have a textured finish on the outer layer of your bands. You can choose an earthy hand-made look, where the jeweler either hammers a unique texture, brushes it, or grinds it. You can choose a rugged artifact-like styling for your band, a grinded gold ring, or a soft brushed finish.
What exactly is a brushed finish? Well, in contrary to flashy wedding rings, a brushed finish has a soft dispersion of light, making it much warmer and not as “noisy” as other rings.
The key thing that puts textured wedding rings apart from other rings you’ll find in a store is that every ring is hand crafted, especially for you.
3. Unforgettable Ring Engravings
We all know (or imagine) how powerful ring engravings can be. Sure, it adds a bunch of meaning, romance, and that awesome “special” effect to a ring. But in order to really make it your super special ring for life, you need to choose the right engraving. An unforgettable engraving.
You’ll need to decide what you precisely want your wedding ring to symbolize, and say. It can range from the old traditional lines (“till death do us part”), romantic lines (“to the moon and back”), religious (“Joined under God”), or funny (“do not remove!”). But these have become quite ordinary and common engravings.
If you really want your ring engraving to be unique and unforgettable – try some new exciting trends. Do you and your partner have sweet nicknames you call each other? Engrave those on your rings. It can serve as a constant reminder of your special bond.
Not unique enough for you? How about engraving your Fingerprints? Bride’s fingerprint on the Groom’s ring, and vice-versa. It can’t get more personalized than that, or can it? Well, some trendy couples today are engraving their sound waves on their wedding rings!
4. Spinning Wedding Rings
How about a wedding ring that spins and is based on ancient Tibetan traditions? Called a ‘Spinner Ring” or “Spinning Ring”, this remarkable piece of art has an unconventional look and is probably the only “interactive” ring out there.
The “Spinning Ring” is made of two layers, the inside of the band and the outer layer that can spin around the band. According to ot ancient Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhists used to engrave religious texts on the outer layer, and then spin the ring in order to recite their prayers.
You can engrave your own secret text that will only be visible when you spin the ring. However, it’s not the only wondrous effect this “interactive” ring has to offer. According to Buddhists, as you spin the ring on your finger, and recite the text on it, the mere spinning motion carries the potential to calm your mind, and boost the positive energy (karma) around you. Who wouldn’t want to maintain a happy marriage?
5. Puzzle Wedding Rings
This unique ring is made of numerous hooked bands (usually 2 or 3), that connect in a puzzle form to create one solid ring. Some claim the origin of the Puzzle Ring is in Turkey, and therefore also called the “Turkish Wedding Ring” or “Harem Ring”.
According to old Turkish stories, the groom would give the bride a Puzzle Ring for one simple reason: If she ever removed it, it would supposedly be to commit infidelity. In this case, according to the Turkish tale, the puzzle ring’s bands would fall apart and the wife wouldn’t know how to put it back together before her husband would notice…ouch 🙂
Well, when you try on a Puzzle Ring today and see how easy it is to assemble, the old tale does sound like a fictitious legend. Modern Puzzle Wedding rings symbolize a strong connection between the bride and groom.
Customized Wedding bands are growing in popularity these days, as young couples are searching for special and personalized options for the most important jewelry item of their lives. It doesn’t need to have an expensive diamond or gemstone on top, it has to show and embody the unique love, passion, and commitment.
