You may have heard that a diamond lasts forever… but we think a handmade diamond or gemstone ring lasts forever + a day. We kid, we kid. If you’ve been an avid Emmaline Bride reader for awhile, you know we have a big ol’ heart for all things handmade. And, as you may have guessed, handmade wedding rings are no exception. If you are gearing up to pop the question, we recommend handmade wedding rings as an option.
But why? …
4 Reasons Why You’ll Love Handmade Wedding Rings
1. made with love: each ring is made lovingly with two hands by an independent artisan,
2. custom: the ring can be customized to your liking, and
3. direct: your ideas can be communicated to the artisan directly
4. support: support the efforts of an independent artisan
While most jewelry stores’ inventory system relies on pre-made rings – which makes total sense for immediate buyers – it doesn’t offer the same flexibility or customization that makes handmade so unique. For instance, if your fiancee is a mountain-biking, rock-climbing, nature-loving babe, she may fall in love with a diamond ring featuring a nature-inspired twig finish on the band. Or, maybe your honey prefers the colorful pop of gemstones (the orangey one below is to. die. for.) versus traditional diamonds… there are plenty of handmade options available! We want you to be the judge… so, without further adieu browse some of the most beautiful handmade wedding rings we have ever seen below and let us know which one you love best:
