When it comes to a ring you'll wear for a potential adult lifetime (and maybe pass along to future generations), a custom ring is truly the way to go. You're reading this blog because you want to create a wedding that fits you, right? Shouldn't your rings do the same? Our longtime partner in jewelry magic, Joseph Jewelry, makes it their business to craft the most personalized, most unique, most ANYTHING YOU WANT rings imaginable.
Whether it's unique and awesome men's wedding bands, adding in colored gemstones, or harnessing the power of layered metals, out-of-this-world meteorite, or even a solid DIAMOND band (it's a THING!), your wildest wish is their command. You can browse their rings to shop or to get inspiration, of course, but don't let that limit you. Customizing rings is their jam. Here's a great overview of how their custom ring-creation process works. It's SO fun.
Okay, okay, you get it. But what does a custom ring open the door to anyway? Let's see, shall we?
Both edges of the ring are uneven to create a representation of a range of mountains. There is one particularly high peak, and this corresponds with the beginning of the river. The river cuts a path from the side of that mountain down through the middle of the ring all the way around the band, eventually curving down to the bottom edge of the ring right below its starting point. Swoon!
Get ready for this ring totally made from diamond(!)…
This amazing polished ring is made from pressurized diamond dust(!). Lab-grown diamonds are put under pressure which turns into dust and is then form into a solid band. According to the creators, the pressure amount equals the amount of pressure that would happen if you turned the Eiffel Tower upside down on it's point. WTF!
This nature-inspired ring is made up of a combination of 14k rose gold, 14k palladium white gold, and sterling silver, all three of which are mixed together using the special mokume gane technique. To make a ring like this, the artisans layer thin sheets of the selected metals together and then forge them in a particular way to produce the swirling, organic patterns seen here.
But the possibilities don't stop here, no matter how much we get heart eyes for these designs. You can totally design your own custom ring incorporating any elements you love from these rings, heirlooms, or imagery from any of your interests (like these fandom-inpsired rings!). Don't settle for merely pretty rings that don't capture how you are. You (or your partner) will be wearing that ring all day every day and you'll want to love it.
Start scheming some ideas (here are some tips!) and take it to the magicians at Joseph Jewelry to bring it to life. Trust me, if you can imagine it, they can create it.
