The exchanging of the rings is one of the most exciting and personal moments in any wedding. You also have to look at your wedding band every day, so making sure your rings are personal and authentically you is super important for even the most non-traditional couples. Whether you want something minimal or a ring that’s never been seen before, there are plenty of unique ring options out there.

The Great Frog

Chances are you’re already familiar with The Great Frog (and if you’re not, check them out immediately – their skull rings are legendary) but you might not know that they do their own range of wedding rings, too. All of their wedding bands can be created in silver or gold, and each is handmade for you. They have everything from the deceptively simple to more unusual geometric styles, so you’re bound to find something that speaks to you.

Sofia Zakia

One way of making sure your wedding bands are unique to you is to get them engraved. Sofia Zakia has a range of out-of-this-world wedding rings, including these utterly beautiful constellation bands which you can have etched with the constellation of your other half’s zodiac sign – I can’t think of a better way to match without really matching.

If the zodiac’s not your thing, there’s also a huge range of gorgeous rings made with different stones and diamonds, inspired by everything from goddesses to the cosmos. A ring inspired by a Greek goddess is definitely something I’m on board with.

Kipkalinka

For those of you a little more inclined to head towards the dark side, you should head over to Kipkalinka’s Etsy page. Her wedding bands are dainty but still full of character, with an amazing variety of metals and jewels so you can find something that suits your bad ass personality. Those simple skull bands would make amazing matching couples rings, whilst her various coloured diamonds would make the perfect showstopper.

Alternative Engagement Ring Ideas for Rock n Roll Brides

Charleen, $5693

If you’re reading this, the likelihood is that you don’t want your wedding to be super traditional. Maybe you’re wearing a coloured gown, sashaying down the aisle to your favourite metal song or putting skulls on the tables instead of flowers. All of these things, and many more, are really fun yet fleeting ways to showcase your individuality. After all, once the wedding itself if over they won’t exist in your everyday life.

If you want a more permanent way to showcase that uniqueness as you go on into your marriage, then you might want to consider an engagement ring that feels more ‘you’ too.

Audrix Rustic Light Pink Diamond, $2750
Ava, $2550
Daymis, $1250

Ken & Dana Design, a family-owned and operated wedding jeweller (based in NYC but working with couples all over the world) have a HUGE selection of some of the most unique, alternative and beautiful engagement rings I’ve ever seen. I’m personally loving their range of nude, soft pinks and grey stoned rings, and a raw or rustic diamond gives a very different, much more subtle, overall look than a cut stone would. They’re often a much more affordable option too. I’m here for it!
