The other day I saw a photo of a bride in a black wedding gown and I thought, “Well that’s unusual.” But is it really? Who says you have to wear white, throw rice, or toss a bouquet? And who says your wedding ring has to include a diamond?
Today’s brides and grooms – especially older couples marrying for the second time – are more inclined to let their individual tastes show, rather than sticking with tradition. You’ll see gowns of all colors, themed ceremonies, destination weddings, and yes, non-traditional wedding bands as well.
Unique gemstone rings featuring garnets or other stones make stunning wedding bands for him or for her. Consider gems to represent your birthday, the date of your wedding, or even the date you first met. Choose a vibrant amethyst to make a bold statement, or a delicate citrine for a more subtle look. Matching his and hers bands can have the same or different stones for a unique look that’s all yours.
Gold or silver, bold or delicate, intricate or simple, wedding bands are as diverse as the couples who wear them. Take a browse through my ring collection and see what styles speak to you.
