I have been lucky enough over the years to see the most stunning wedding rings ever. But not just beautiful bling bling wedding rings, but wedding rings that were plainer, more symbolic and had stories of their own. Handmade wedding rings made from grandparents weddings rings, weddings rings made of unusual materials, bone, stone and wood. Wedding rings which cost very little, but meant a hell of a lot.
In the same way that your wedding ceremony and your wedding day should be 100% reflective of you, your wedding rings can be too. And just like with your wedding, there are no rules! Your wedding ring can be whatever you want it to be; whatever material, stone or no stone, engraved or not. Whatever you want!
As an Esty obsesionado, I have gone through their wedding ring department and have picked out my top ten favourites rings and wedding bands. These wedding rings have been handmade by goldsmiths and artisans who pour their love and passion into what they do, which is why I love supporting Etsy creatives. And what’s more, I love that these rings are totally affordable and do not burn a hole into your bank account! Yes please, and thank you very much!
Enjoy my selection. Which would you go for?
1. Palladium hand-shaped wedding band
