When it comes to buying rings for weddings, whether it be engagement rings, wedding bands, or other kinds of jewelry, LGBTQ couples (and throuples and more!) are throwing out the traditions that bind them to forge their own paths in ringdom. Whether you propose to each other, have matching bands, eschew rings altogether in favor of another kind of jewelry, the options for rings that represent your identity are endless.
Now of course, nothing about these rings is explicitly gay (do they only have sex with other rings?) and you can have any dang ring you want, regardless of identity. That said, we browsed some of our favorite ring creators to see what trends and ideas they’ve been seeing in wedding jewelry that allow for more expression of who and how you love, what your gender is, and how you want to communicate that to world.
Super affordable, unique engagement rings

But what if you’re two masculine or nonbinary folks proposing to each other?
Sometimes when you’re proposing to a man or someone who identifies as nonbinary, you may not want the stereotypical feminine engagement ring. But you might still want something with a little bling. That’s why we love these more masculine and gender-neutral engagement rings.
What if you want unusual colors?
And what if you just really love rainbows??
