While a traditional giant diamond engagement ring is still a classic symbol of love these days, lots of people – including me – are opting for a ring that is a little more practical and personal. Enter, the alternative wedding ring (or engagement ring). This ring is a symbol of your eternal love for your partner and it should be as unique as your relationship.
There are lots of alternative wedding rings out there, but the perfect, head-turning ring can be hard to find.

Having a big sparkly diamond set in a sharp metal setting just wasn’t for me. I knew I’d inevitably scratch myself with it daily, lose the diamond (or my finger) when it got caught on something, scrape up the precious metal, and become a major theft target while traveling. White gold is so pretty, but the maintenance that comes with it is a little too demanding. The ring needed low-profile, non-tarnishing, with a smooth surface, that could withstand the beating I knew I would put it through.
