Love is love is love: and that means you deserve the right to marry whomever you want, regardless of their gender. With marriage equality on the rise, LGBT couples now get to enjoy one of the most fun parts of planning a wedding: choosing the wedding rings!
There are thousands of different designs, but it’s best to take your time and find one that speaks to who you are. Here are some beautiful ideas for wedding rings for LGBT couples:
The rainbow is a symbol of pride within the LGBT community, so many couples choose to incorporate it into their wedding rings. One way to do this is by creating a custom eternity band using different colored gemstones to represent all the colors of the rainbow.
LGBT couples can also choose a more traditional ring with a diamond in the center and then incorporate brightly colored gemstones into the band’s design. This Twisted Petal Diamond and Gemstone Ring is a perfect example of how to incorporate your LGBT pride into the classic look of an engagement ring.
Mother of Pearl
Some LGBT couples want to wear their pride loud and proud, while others may want to wear it in a more subtle way. If you’re in the latter group, consider buying a ring with mother of pearl, instead of gemstones. Mother of pearl is an iridescent material, so as the light hits it, different colors will appear. This Mother of Pearl Inlay Men’s Wedding Ring is subtle, yet it still makes a statement about how proud you are to be you.
Matching Heart Sets
Feel connected to your new spouse even when you’re not physically close to one another with this Matching Heart Fingerprint Inlay Wedding Ring Set. Each set comes with two rings, one for you and one for your partner. On their own, the rings are stunning, but when they come together, the engraved design forms a whole heart to symbolize how your partner completes you.
Does your partner make you feel as if you are bursting at the seams with love? There’s no better way to incorporate this feeling into your wedding ring than by choosing the Grooved Edge Celtic Heart Ring. The laser cut design, which wraps around the entire band, features hearts that are all connected to one another. This symbolizes how we are all connected to one another and we all have the freedom to love whomever we want. No matter our differences, we all have the same beating hearts with the capacity to love.
If you want a truly unique ring, discuss custom engraving options with a jeweler. There are many different designs that would work perfectly on wedding rings for LGBT couples, including:
- The equal sign to represent LGBT equality
- Interlocking gender symbols to represent your same sex marriage
- The outline of two people holding hands
Couples can also opt for engraved words instead of a design. Some of the more popular options include:
- “Love is love”
- “Mr. & Mr.” or “Mrs. & Mrs.”
- “Love knows no gender”
With one of these custom engraved rings, you can have a ring that truly stands out and speaks volumes about who you are on your own and as a couple!
Above all else, it’s important to find a ring that you love. This will be the symbol of your unconditional love for your spouse and it will be on your finger for the rest of your life, so take your time when searching for the right ring.
