If you're searching for a truly unique wedding band for both you and your partner, definitely check out the Fabuluster rings on Etsy. You might remember them from their first time on OBB — they were the fingerprint rings that got picked up all over the blogosphere. I loved Gizmodo's take on them.
And just how DO they do it? Allow the designer to explain…
I send you my Impression Kit in the mail. Once you receive it, imprint the entire length of your finger and/or your fiancés finger separately. Then you mail that back to me. Once I receive it here in my studio in beautiful coastal Maine, I make a wax form from the impression material. Then utilizing the ancient lost wax casting process, I turn that impression into a metal ring utilizing gold or silver.

(And for you privacy hounds, YES: they destroy the original impression kit after the rings are made. NO: they aren't interested in stealing your identity for clandestine international espionage.)
Clearly, the fingerprint rings are a really cool alternative to plain bands, but even cooler… they can fit into any budget — ranging from $45 to $550. So head over to their Etsy shop and start customizing your own rings!
