Custom Hand Engraved Diamond Band We are always down to clown with nature wedding themes, whimsical animals, and nerdy fandom creatures in weddings. And this is doubly so when it's incorporated into your wedding rings. Wait, have you never seen animals rings before? You think it's all plain ol' bands and regular ol' settings? Get ready to have your mind blown about what you can actually have made for your engagement ring or wedding bands. Spoiler alert: it's literally anything. A Hufflepuff badger ring? Yup. A butterfly amid vines on the band? Oh yes. A fox patronus ring? Rad. A subtle snake print on a masculine wedding band? Of course. If you're wondering how these come to be, it's a no-brainer for us. We work with our long-time custom jewelry partners at Joseph Jewelry. You can pick one of their gorgeous existing rings, of course, but why stop there when you can dream up a nerdy, goth, or nature-based animal ring to channel your inner familiar? A 3D rendering for a custom ring The custom process at Joseph Jewelry is fascinating. You submit your ideas in the form of drawings, inspiration photos, movie quotes, textures, or whatever moves you, and they magically take your concepts (or add their own if you want!) and turn them into a totally custom design in a 3D modeling program so you can preview it. You can tweak it, change it, add elements, and make it totally your own with a super talented artisan doing all the heavy lifting. And you don't have to come with fancy designs in hand — just bring them your ideas, doodled or otherwise, and they will help you find your way. Trust me, they are PROS and make the process both easy and super fun. That 3D rendering turned into an actual cat ring! You can see how former editor Megan had her ring custom made here. Oh, and the best part? If you have a budget in mind, they'll help you narrow down your gemstone and metal choices to make it fit perfectly. There are materials you may not have even heard about that will give you an amazing look without a huge price tag. I know, I know. Maybe you'd love an animalistic ring but don't know where to start. I wrangled up a few super creative ones to get your brain juices flowing. You can go as wild as these or pick a tiny element you like for a more traditional ring with personality.
