20 Unconventional Wedding Bands
Just got engaged? Or in the month before your wedding and just realized you haven’t picked out wedding bands? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve scoured the web to bring you a plethora of beautiful, modern, and unconventional wedding bands. Happy wedding-ing! (P.S. If you’re thinking about popping the question in the near future, check out our roundup on unconventional and affordable engagement rings!)
1. Armenta Diamond Band ($990): Our first gorgeous band is made of oxidized silver and covered with diamonds. The Armenta line is Spanish-inspired, with the idea of creating romantic jewelry with a rocker edge.
2. Speckled Band with Diamond ($330): Can’t resist patterns on top of patterns? This gold band is speckled ever so delicately and punctuated with a single diamond.
3. Gold Wheat Patterned Ring ($430): The wheat engraving pattern is seriously old school, but it also happens to be timeless. Of course, I might be biased… both my engagement ring and wedding band include a half wheat pattern in platinum!
4. Baguette Eternity Band ($3,000): This stunning mix of yellow gold with black rhodium and baguette diamonds has a very vintage quality about it and might also make a cool engagement ring.
5. Etched Floral Pattern in Platinum ($700): This 1915 antique ring features a particularly unique floral pattern etched right into the band. This is a great option for brides who don’t want any bling on their band, but do want some kind of detailing.
6. Half Hoop Baguette Ring ($1,265): There’s something sort of minimal about this band, even though it is dotted with diamonds.
7. Clara Recycled Gold Band ($1,590): Made from recycled gold, this mid-century-inspired ring is a beautiful and subtle statement piece.
8. Gold and Black Hammered Wood Grain ($300 for set of 2): Wood you marry me? Sorry, I had to. The light woodgrain texture engraved right into these bands isn’t obvious at first, but adds a lovely level of dimension to a pair of stackers.
9. Thin Pave White Diamond Band Ring ($1,680): Slightly more classic is this white diamond band, set in a gold that almost looks like a blend of yellow gold and rose gold.
10. Curved Stackable Rings ($22 each): At $22 a pop, these stackables would make great placeholders if you’re waiting to figure out what kind of wedding band you want – or if you need to save a little cash while planning your wedding :)
11. Oxidized Black Band ($79): For the modern dude, we’ll kick things off with this oxidized black band. Of course, how could you display this on a typical ring display? An errant piece of woodgrain is the only thing equipped to hold such a manly piece of jewelry ;)
12. Gold Hewn Hammered Band ($1,350): The hammered texture on this ring means it’s not entirely shiny and it’s not entirely matte – great for indecisive grooms.
13. Oxidized Silver + Black Diamond ($170): Another oxidized option, this features a teeny tiny bit of bling in the form of a black diamond. It’s a nice dot of sparkle that gives this ring a certain je ne sais quoi.
14. Square with Onyx Stone ($850): Definitely the most unconventional of the bunch, this square gold ring makes a bold style statement, and the square onyx stone is such an unusual touch.
15. Woodland Designs ($125 and up): Nature lovers? Go for a band with a small engraving of a tree! There are tons of options in this shop to choose from, and they make ladies’ bands as well.
16. Stamped Latitude and Longitude ($86): For geography nerds, get a custom latitude and longitude ring marking the place you first met, where you’re planning to get married, or another place of importance in your life.
17. Wood + Silver “Color” Block ($150): How cool is this? It’s like a wood-dipped wedding band!
18. Hammered Silver ($126): Our second hammered option offers a bit more texture and a darker disposition. We love the pairing of the men’s and women’s bands.
19. Gold Wheat Patterned Ring ($790): Hey, that looks familiar! This is the men’s version of the gold wheat wedding band we wrote about up in the ladies’ section.
20. Faceted Titanium Band ($74): And finally, a geometric ring that almost looks as if it was 3D printed! Made of titanium, this ring gets its texture from being sandblasted.
