How to Design Custom Wedding Bands

How to Design Custom Wedding Bands

Your wedding band will be one of the most essential pieces of jewelry you’ll own. It symbolizes the love between you and your partner, so it’s no wonder you’re considering creating unique wedding bands with their own story. Designing a custom wedding band allows you to create something extraordinary and meaningful; here’s a brief guide to help you start the design process. If you think you’re ready, contact our team at Bostonian Jewelers to learn more about it. 

Find Your Wedding Band Inspiration 

Before starting the design process, you need to find inspiration from different sources. We know the final product will be unique, but it’s always good to have some roadmap to get us started. Pinterest and Instagram are great platforms where you can browse through countless images of wedding bands to see what styles, metals, and stones you like best. You could also visit our storefront in Boston to try on some different styles and designs to see how they feel and look on your hand. Lastly, start thinking about memorable elements from your relationship—places, symbols, and shared interests- that could all be incorporated into your design. 

Set A Wedding Band Budget

The next step is to determine what you can afford. Custom rings can range from affordable to quite expensive, depending on the materials you use and the complexity of your design. Setting a budget in the early stages of the design process will help you make an informed decision and avoid any cost surprises. If you’re concerned about this side of things, we urge you to contact our team to discuss your options. 

Choose the Wedding Band Elements 

After finding inspiration and knowing what you can afford, you can select some aspects of the ring you want as the foundation. To start, you can choose the metal for your bands. Common options include: 

  • Gold: available in yellow, white, and rose 
  • Platinum: durable and hypoallergenic
  • Palladium: affordable alternative to platinum
  • Silver: budget-friendly, less durable

After choosing which metal you like, you can consider which gemstones you’d like, if any. While diamonds are traditional, you can select any gemstones that hold special meaning in your life. For example, birthstones, colored gems, and lab-grown diamonds are great alternatives to traditional diamonds. 

Add Custom Personal Touches 

This may or may not be the hardest step. Custom wedding bands are, of course, all about personalization. Some options include engravings of special dates, initials, or meaningful quotes that can be engraved inside the band. Unique designs are also a fun option, which could be a one-of-a-kind pattern or motif—if you have a favorite hobby, movie, book, etc., that is meaningful to you, it could be incorporated into the design. As mentioned above, personal touches could also be added through birthstones and gems that are meaningful to you and your partner.
