Rose Gold Bands
Platinum, yellow gold, and white gold are exceedingly popular materials for wedding rings. However, rose gold engagement rings and wedding bands can be simply stunning. If you are looking for a particularly striking look then a tricolor Russian band can also make for a unique wedding band that features rose gold along with yellow and white gold.
Rose gold is by far the most romantic metal. Some specialist jewelers might have more unusual choices, like chocolate or sage gold varieties, which can also create a unique design for your personal tastes.
Multi-Row rings are popular among women who do not want to wear a separate wedding and engagement ring. There are usually two to three rows of metal and stones on these rings. Sometimes the rows are exactly the same; other times, there can be various shapes, sizes, and designs among them. Check out this dazzling three-row diamond ring from Blue Nile for inspiration.
Openwork Wedding Rings
An openwork ring is usually wider and might not contain any gemstones. The main feature of this ring is the intricate metalwork. Delicate patterns and shapes are cut out of the metal itself. Vintage patterns are common, as are lace and knot patterns. Where stones are incorporated, they are usually diamonds, adding some sparkle to the piece.
Bezel Set Rings
If you love diamonds and want to show them off, a bezel setting is perfect for this purpose. As a bonus, a bezel setting protects your diamonds from everyday wear and tear. You might also find that this setting is particularly feminine and elegant.
If diamonds are not really your thing, then we are happy to report that there is an extensive list of gemstones that you can choose from. These gemstones bring with them a plethora of colors and hues. Just look at this gorgeous pink sapphire and diamond ring from Blue Nile. A specific gemstone can also be a great way to add symbolism to your ring.

Not everyone wants stones on their wedding ring, which leads many to seek out textured rings instead. Adding texture to a plain wedding ring can lead to an unusual and unique wedding ring at a lower cost than a diamond band. A textured band also allows the engagement ring to take all the splendor and works especially well with a solitaire engagement ring that has a single center stone. A textured ring may be braided, twisted, carved, beaded, hammered, or scalloped.
Stackable rings are usually delicate and can be customized. These rings are thin and sets are coordinated. There is usually quite a bit of variety within a stacking ring set. Unique engagement rings are paired with unique wedding bands and other rings that celebrate milestones, births, and anniversaries. A dainty design is common, but so is variety. Textured bands and different settings and stones can be found in stacking ring sets.
Eternity Wedding Bands
An eternity band is a classic style featuring a pave setting. In the past, pave bands were usually encrusted only with diamonds, or diamond accents in between other precious stones. In modern times, the combinations and styles for pave bands are endless. Matching or mismatched stones can be set into any metal, or a combination of metals.
Tips for Unique Wedding Bands
When you already have a unique engagement ring, it can be difficult to settle on an equally unique wedding ring. Furthermore, there are so many wedding rings out there that it can be difficult to decide what you are looking for in a unique wedding ring.
There are a few things to consider before you start looking for unique wedding bands. First and foremost is your budget. Adding sparkle to your ring can be expensive, and some materials are far more expensive than others. Custom rings might have slightly larger price tags too. Details that add time to the creation of the piece can also add to the price.
