Wedding Ring Alternatives | Favorite Finds Friday

By

As you all know, the season of Valentine's Day is upon us and with that many newly engaged couples are going to be popping up very soon!  Now, I know many of you out there have dreamed of your perfect ring for when your perfect person asks you to marry them, and I must note that I love the traditional and classic style of rings that are out there.  Clean lines, gorgeous gems, and sparkling shine - what's not to love?  But, what if you are looking for something a little bit different?  Something a little more personal or out of the ordinary?  Luckily, the options are endless!  I've compiled some of my very favorites and love the different options and materials that are out there now!  Check it out! Clockwise from the top left: Braille rings, Scattered Diamond Fingerprint ring, 'I Do' Laser Cut rings and Sterling Silver Fingerprint ring. These rings are the most personalized I've ever seen.  From the braille ring, to the wedding rings that hold your honey's fingerprint inside the band, to a laser cut ring that shows the wavelength of you and your spouse saying "I do."  Seriously, these rings are amazingly personal and one of a kind, not to mention GORGEOUS! Clockwise from the top left: Purr Wooden ring, Diamond and Wood ring, Offset Turquoise Inlay rings, Recycled Gold Inlay ringTurquoise and Koa Wood ring, Dinosaur Bone ring, Blue Box Elder and Water Buffalo Horn rings, and Gold Stars (Glitter) ring These rings are filled with alternative materials.  Wood, stone, recycled metal shavings, dinosaur bones, and even glitter (it actually makes a very gorgeous inlay, and not at all hokey)!  These natural materials are also one of a kind and BEAUTIFUL. Images courtesy of ZumaPhoto These last rings are more traditional, yes, and you may even recognize them - they are Mary and her honey, Rick's, wedding rings!   I really want to highlight the gorgeous pictures you can get of your rings at your wedding.  Not only do you want pictures of you, your loved ones, and all the details you've worked so hard on, but aren't these pictures of the rings GORGEOUS?  And how fun is it to have some really cool set ups of you and your honey's ring?  I love it! Whether you are planning to propose on Valentine's Day or sometime after, hoping to be proposed to, or if you are already engaged but still trying to find that perfect ring - you should definitely check out something that would be one of a kind and the perfect expression of you and your honey, not to mention your personal style!  Happy planning everyone!
