These days, more and more couples want to break free from tradition and do their own thing. Whether it’s in the decision to live together before getting married, eloping instead of having a large ceremony or even choosing a set of silicone rings instead of wearing traditional metal bands, there are lots of things couples can do to be different from everyone else. Choosing alternative wedding bands allows for couples to choose ring shapes that are extremely unique. Here are some of our favorite unique wedding ring shapes you should consider!\nReasons to Buy a Non-Metal Ring\nIf you’re still on the fence about whether or not you should order an alternative wedding band, here are just a few reasons why silicone rings make for a great alternative to traditional metal bands. \n\n\nAffordability: Silicone rings are much more affordable than metal bands. While the most expensive part of a wedding tends to be the reception venue, engagement rings and wedding bands combined tend to come in a close second or third, depending on the location. If you’re looking for ways to have your wedding on a budget or put more funds toward something else, such as the down payment on a home, you can easily turn to an alternative ring instead. That doesn’t mean our rings are cheap, though — we use the best quality silicone in our rings to ensure they’re durable and will last as long as your marriage, even allowing you to pass them down to future generations too!\n\n\nShop Our Stackable Silicone Rings\n\n\nDurability: We can’t say it enough, but our silicone rings are durable. Our Q2X rings can withstand temperatures up to 450° Fahrenheit, making them perfect for couples who work with heavy machinery or high temperatures. Firefighters and mechanics can wear our rings, while they usually have to remove their metal rings while on the clock at work. With our collection of men’s wedding bands, they can continue to show their commitment no matter where they are or what they’re working on.\n\n\n\n\n\nTime: Our silicone rings are made with care, but they tend to ship faster than more traditional metal rings. If you’re looking for a faster turnaround time, silicone is the way to go. Even our engravable rings tend to make it in time for quickly approaching weddings. \n\n\nSafety: Silicone rings are safer to wear than metal rings. Many people suffer from a metal allergy, whereas silicone is actually hypoallergenic. For many, silicone rings also help to prevent ring avulsion, where a metal ring gets caught and rips the tendons and skin on your finger. Ring avulsion could also lead to you losing your whole finger! \n\n\nUnique Wedding Ring Shapes\nAll of our wedding bands for women feature fun and unique designs, shapes and colors that every woman will love. Here are some of our favorite unique shapes!\n\n\nSquare: That’s right, a ring can be squared. Our squared rings are great because they can come in one large square or be a round ring made up of small squares. We call this our Step Ring, where the circle has a set of scores around it to look like it’s made up of small squares. \n\n\n\n\n\nTwist: Looking for something to represent infinity or eternity? Our twisted silicone ring and our eternity ring feature infinity-sign-like designs that make the ring appear like it’s going on forever and ever, much like your love and devotion for your partner. \n\n\nBeaded: A beaded silicone ring is great for when you want a circular ring with a bit of texture. It’s still highly soft and feminine, and you can easily wear it by itself or stacked with any of our other rings.\n\n\nDomed: We’re often asked to explain about low dome vs. high dome wedding bands. Simply put, the difference is in how rounded the top of the wedding band is. The higher the dome, the rounder the top of the ring looks. Most men’s wedding bands have a higher dome than women’s, but we’re big fans of the wedding band look that pairs a textured stackable ring with a high dome wedding band for women. This makes for a truly unique wedding ring shape that will have heads turning! \n\n\nYou could even pair it with one textured ring on the bottom, a high dome ring in the middle and another textured ring on top. All the different combinations allow you to truly express yourself in a way that makes sense to you, your style and your relationship!
