You’ve got your venue, your cake, your dress and his tux all picked out...but what about your wedding band? Oh yeah, you don’t want that to be a last-minute decision. And you definitely don’t want the ring that sits alongside your gorgeous engagement ring to fall flat. Here are 35 unique wedding bands—for every budget—that won’t look anything like the solid gold or infinity band everyone else has.
35 Unique Wedding Bands That Still Feel Timeless
1. suzanne Kalan 18k Yellow Gold Way Wave Ring
The undulating profile looks unpredictable but will actually stack beautifully with a solitaire of any size.
3. selin Kent Leia Ring
Just because you’re looking for an original ring doesn’t mean it has to be over-the-top intricate or so trendy that it will be uncool in two years. Simply look for details that feel intrinsically you, like a teeny chevron pattern.
5. spinelli Kilcollin Adonis Ring
If subtle with a flair is your thing, this delicate 18K rose gold band with an 18K white gold annulet will pair perfectly with your blush silk column gown with puff sleeves.
8. Walters Faith Saxon 18k Rose Gold Chain Link Ring
A chain might feel light on your finger, but it will certainly serve as a powerful symbol of your solid partnership.
11. Zales Baguette And Round Diamond Alternating Bar Anniversary Band
The smallest tweaks can make the biggest impact. Consider these horizontal baguettes that add a little something extra to the traditional channel setting.
12. Stephanie Gottlieb Undecided Ring
Can’t choose between two stone cuts? No need to get two different bands, because jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb has a custom option that lets you choose any two shaped diamonds (from 0.15 carats and up) and combine them into one ring. Drool.
13. Erstwhile Day And Night Band
Another option for the bride who has a hard time picking favorites, this Erstwhile design mixes not only platinum and 18K gold, but also Old European cut diamonds and deep blue sapphires. Plus, it’s slightly more budget friendly.
15. Spinelli Kilcollin Ceres Ring
Indulge your love of stacking mixed metals without worrying about losing a ring every second of the day. This Spinelli Kilcollin infinity band and two gold rings are secured with two pavé set white diamond connectors. We’re considering it to be the chicest form of insurance ever.
18. Sophie Ratner Slim Diamond Band
A teeny infinity band is sweet. But if you’re looking for something just a step above, the beaded edges add extra texture to this Sophie Ratner ring.
19. Luisa Alexander 18k Yellow Gold And Amethyst Interlocked Hearts Band
We’re suckers for any jewelry that comes with an “awwwww” reaction, like these heart-shaped amethysts. The whopping 5.8 carats of lavender sparkle set in 18K white gold will also pop alongside any diamond cut.

20. Stone And Strand Tri-starburst Diamond Ring
Gypsy bands, which are part of the current antique-inspired jewelry trend, are a great option if you love the bold look of a lot of gold. If you have a chubbier engagement ring, this starburst-adorned style is a fitting accent piece.
21. Brent Neale Rainbow Wide Eternity Band
For rainbow lovers who prefer soft shades (or simply adore pink tourmaline, blue topaz, citrine, peridot and amethyst), this wide eternity band is a total dream.
24. John Hardy Classic Chain Hammered Band Ring
Upon first glance, this might look like a boring classic band. But the hammered detail on the sterling silver adds just enough texture to make it stand out from the pack. Plus, it’s a low-key way to add a ’70s detail to your bridal stack.
26. Ofira Tattoo 18-karat White Gold Diamond Ring
The sharp angles of this bauble will nestle particularly well with sharp cuts, like a kite-shaped diamond.
27. Wwake Tonal Four-step Ring
If a traditional infinity band isn’t your style, try this more relaxed take from Wwake featuring a trail of four pale sapphires. The moody stones will best complement gray diamonds or even an opal.
28. Retrouvaí Magna Ring With Square-cut Diamonds
There’s something about square-cut diamonds that feels delightfully vintage-inspired, like a relic passed down from your grandma but modernized for you. That feels particularly true of the 0.58 carat of stunners channel set in Retrouvai’s split band.
BUY IT ($4,005)
29. Polly Wales Lexi Halo Half Eternity Band With Tapered Baguettes
Polly Wales is best known for her unconventional setting techniques that make even the fanciest of stones feel like they can be worn every day. Just check out how casual these five tapered baguettes (measuring 0.34 carat) look in this band.
BUY IT ($4,290)
30. Suel Jewelry Blue Enamel Band
Who says your something blue has to be only for your wedding day? This enamel ring can serve as the sweetest daily reminder of the day you said “I do.”
31. Zales Diamond Scattered Anniversary Band
A zigzag of diamonds set in white gold sounds luxe—and super expensive. Luckily, this piece is only $314, so you can splurge a little more on your wedding shoes.
32. Kwiat Moonlight Three-row Diamond Crossover Band
If you’re trying to achieve maximum bling without XL stones, the 3.4 carats of pavé diamonds set in this tri-layered number from Kwiat is a brilliant option.
33. Ashley Zhang Seed Pearl And Diamond Ring
One good reason to consider a band that isn’t set with stones all the way around (à la infinity style)? It’s much easier to resize a ring when you don’t have to move diamonds...or pearls...or any other gemstone.
34. Erstwhile Golden Twisted Band
We’ve never seen pavé stones set on the bias like they are in this Erstwhile design. The wrapped vine-like design is bound to garner endless compliments (not to mention plenty of copycats).
35. Tiffany & Co. Nesting Narrow Band Ring
Classic with a twist, this medium-width band isn’t too out-there but will still bring a flash of gold to your everyday life. (It’s also subtle enough to wear to even a yoga class.)
