Unique Wedding Ring Sets

unique wedding ring setsThere are a lot of ways to ensure that your wedding rings are more unique than others we’ve all seen. One sure fire way is to choose a stone other than a diamond.

For me, it all started with the gorgeous blue sapphire ring Prince Charles gave to Lady Diana. It was stunning but unique in setting as well as the center stone being a sapphire instead of a diamond. It was outside the box — and I liked it.

Gem Stones and Meanings

There are lots of gemstones to choose from that have meanings that would be appropriate for the occasion of a marriage. Some of the more readily available stones include:




BlueConfidence, Loyalty, Truth, StrengthSapphire, Aqua Marine, Blue Topaz, Turquoise, Tanzanite
RedPassion, Energy, Love, Power, StrengthRuby, Garnet, Red Diamonds, Corals
Purple (Pink)Love, Spirituality, Royalty, Serenity, PrideAmethysts, Pink & Purple Diamonds, Pink Topaz
BrownDependability, Harmony, Stability, PracticalityChocolate Diamonds, Tiger's Eye, Agate, Dark Quartz
BlackProsperity, Happiness, Fidelity, HealthBlack Diamonds, Onyx, Hematite

Some Celebrities have gone Non-Traditional with their Wedding Rings

That’s right! It’s your finger, you plan to wear it for a long time, so why not get a stone you love or that reflects your personality? Some celebrities have done this. They have stepped out of the tradition of diamonds and gone for something different, unique.

The short list includes:

  • Mariah Carey — Pink
  • Jessica Simpson — Red
  • Halle Berry — Green
  • Carrie Underwood — Yellow
  • Elizabeth Hurley — Blue


Non-diamond engagement rings and wedding ring sets (or a set where the diamond is the accent instead of the main ingredient) can be more affordable in addition to being unique. The majority of the time, you can get a larger carat gemstone that makes a statement for less money than when purchasing a diamond.

The wedding is the celebration of two people entering the union of marriage. The rings are the symbol of that union to the rest of the world. It just makes sense that you would want a ring or set of rings that will always make you smile. When you look at the ring(s), you want to think of the person it connects you to with love.

Choosing a ring that symbolizes not only your matrimony but you as a person is unique and different. Step away from the crowd. Choose rings with gemstone colors that mean something to you.

Here are a few of my favorite non-diamond wedding band sets and engagement rings.

    There really are a lot of beautiful gems to choose from besides a “white” diamond. I remember telling my daughter years ago” “like the man, simply choose one that you want to live with for the rest of your life.”

    Unique brides definitely don’t want standard or traditional rings. A different stone is an ideal choice for many. I’m partial to sapphire myself, but I can see some of the other colors to reflect the bride’s personality.
