A lot of this boils down to our passion for custom rings. Customization is a great way to show off your personal style. We can provide different inlay combinations and materials for your beautiful wedding ring. But sometimes the options can feel overwhelming. Do you want a traditional engagement ring with a 14k gold band? Do you prefer rings with a big center diamond with other classic choices? A traditional diamond engagement ring is still in style, but some people prefer a different and larger center stone. The possibilities are endless, but we can narrow your options for you. In this article, we'll go over our most popular custom rings that customers ask us about all the time. We'll go over what makes these metals so special to give you a better idea on how to design your perfect engagement or wedding ring.
Modern and Classic Engagement Ring Ideas: Major Considerations for a Wedding Ring
There are no set rules when it comes to choosing a custom engagement or wedding ring. But you should still consider a few things before asking for a custom design:
1. Consider your budget before you even look at the materials below. Wedding rings can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand.
2. Choose a style that you actually like. A lot of modern couples end up upgrading their bands because they weren't happy with the design. Different people have different tastes. Think about what kind of jewelry you normally wear and select a ring that complements your existing style. Do you want a complex or simple band?
3. Consider the metal. Each metal has its own unique properties, so think about which one would best suit your lifestyle. Different metals will have different levels of maintenance.
4. Decide on the classic route of a single diamond or see what kind of inlay you want. Look at alternative engagement rings to see what you like. You'll be enhancing your ring with extra stones, so evaluate what your tastes are. Do you and your partner prefer a single stone, or do you like multiple alternative stones? Pick your favorite colors of stones to add your personalized touch to the ring. But remember to keep things simple.
Our Top 5 Popular Metals for Beautiful Wedding Rings: The Best Wedding Jewelry
Each one of the following timeless choices is recommended for their customizability. Every wedding and engagement ring style is tough and scratch resistant. Our wedding and engagement ring designs are also built to last a lifetime and look great with a personalized engraving. Add inspirational quotes and memorable dates to make your ring extra personal.
Cobalt chrome is one of our favorite hypoallergenic picks. Cobalt alloys are made up of lightweight cobalt and chromium. The chromium makes it strong and durable while also being malleable enough to work with. Every cobalt chrome ring is scratch-resistant compared to other popular choices like rose gold and titanium rings. The low maintenance and beautiful shine of cobalt jewelry is what makes it so appealing. It's a lot cheaper than a white gold or platinum band but looks and feels the same. One of the few downsides to cobalt chrome is that it's difficult to resize. A jeweler can have a difficult time working with the material as well. Fixing mistakes or redesigning your beautiful piece can prove to be difficult.
One of our most popular cobalt chrome rings is the Star Dust™ Ring . The inlay around the entire band is constructed with materials that mimic a cosmic explosion in space. It's made up of crushed diamonds, moonstone, meteorite shavings, blue opals, and aqua glow stone as its backdrop. You'll love these beautiful engagement rings for its brilliant luster and out-of-this-world look. It's definitely a great conversation starter with its bright blue glow.
Meteorite rings are truly out of this world and a rare and valuable piece of jewelry. It's a scarce material that you can use in our original designs. Our meteorite collection has countless styles for pendants and rings that can look great in almost every situation. You can pair this beautiful engagement ring with wood, resin, and metal with its naturally unique crisscross exterior. The crystal patterns in the rings of two different meteorites will never be the same. Unfortunately, meteorite rings that have been in water can rust if left unattended. You need to keep it away from excessive moisture by drying it right away. You'll want to avoid harsh chemicals or excessive damage from an active lifestyle too.
Meteorite rings remain one of our top picks for a starter meteorite piece. They may need extra maintenance, but it's often worth it. Our Solid Gold Ring with Meteorite Inlay is a more traditional option with space rocks augmenting its golden core. Meteorite rings housed in gold are the perfect combo of cosmic beauty and uniqueness.
A gold band is a timeless option that works well as a traditional wedding band. But adding meteorite along its inlay enhances its worth and beauty. Two thin strips of pure 10K gold are perfectly beveled around the meteorite inlay. If you'd rather have a different inlay like rose gold or yellow gold, we can swap that out too.
Titanium is a lightweight, lustrous, and greyish white metal that's resistant to corrosion. It has a low density, high resistance to corrosion and is strong for its size. It's also used in the production of medical implants and in the jewelry industry. Unfortunately, like cobalt chrome, titanium is hard to resize. Despite this, titanium rings are growing in popularity because of its powerful shine and low maintenance. Its rust-free properties also help it last a lifetime.
Our Titanium Glowstone Ring remains one of the most customizable titanium rings we have. Its gunmetal grey holds a brilliant shine and is one of the most affordable options we have. You get a lot more flexibility with the colors for this ring. The inlay is fully customizable for its daytime and glow colors. You can add exotic inlay materials like rubies, blue sapphires, uncut white diamonds, and other precious gemstones. Choose your favorite colored gemstones or pick a more symbolic material. Pick something that symbolizes you and your relationship best.
Tungsten rings are known for their strength and durability. Our tungsten rings are excellent for people who want the strongest possible ring. It's twice as strong as steel and is a perfect choice for those who want something that needs little to no maintenance. Tungsten rings have become popular as an alternative to traditional gold or silver rings. People love its durability and brilliant luster. A material that's harder than tungsten is diamond.
The Winter's Howl Ring has an inlay of colored stones that contrast beautifully with its band. Its beautiful blue opals and tanzanite visually pop with changing colors under different angles of light. Tanzanite is strong and symbolizes a wide range of things too. People love it since it supposedly transforms negative energy into positive energy. This symbolic energy and durability is enhanced with its scratch-resistant tungsten carbide core. The extra protection and durability make this a popular option for everyday wear.
A lot of the rings we've listed look either gunmetal grey or white. But if you prefer a black-colored ring, black ceramic is a popular pick. Ceramic is a strong and long-lasting material that can be used to make rings in a variety of styles. They're unbelievably scratch-resistant and durable. Titanium carbide is its real name, and it's used in our longest line of black ceramic rings.
The Kaiju Ring is a piece of jewelry with green and black colors that give off extra sparkles. Its inlay of opals looks like dragon scales radiating around its sleek black core. Its beautiful scale pattern contrasts against its black backdrop. Its green and blue colors will catch anyone's attention. This gorgeous engagement ring option's green glow is the brightest of all the glowstone colors when it's fully charged.
