I have been struggling with finding an interesting band…
I mean I really need the help. I’ve been looking for so long for something cool.
I thought it would be great to ask some bee’s for help in locating one or even some ideas on getting one custom designed.
I plan on wearing the band on my right hand. But, the ring will totally be equally as important as the main wedding band I will wear on my left hand. I have a very plain band to go with my er which is what I wanted.
I wish my right hand ring to be something cool and the opposite of plain in a band style. I would like to have my right hand ring made of white sapphire or some colored gem thats at least between a 6 – 9 in hardness. I am totally open to lab created stones, I’ve even started to like lab created opals even though I know they are soft stones. My pref is white metal either white gold or sterling.
Part of the reason I’m asking bee’s for help in this is that I’d like to find out about some possible different outlets other than zales, kohl’s, k jewelers or macy’s.

@chica95110: I actually worked with a local jeweler to customize my engagement ring and my fiance is working with the same jeweler to create a right-hand ring for me. Etsy also has some interesting colored gemstone rings available and I’ve had nothing but great experiences with most Etsy sellers. Any clue what kind of stone you’re leaning towards?

@CandyKate: Thank you for your reply and the sites. I’m totally going to check them out.
I beyond a doubt want white sapphire included no matter what. I love white sapphires… Beyond that I’m open. I very much like opals and lab created emeralds in all cuts and sizes.
I forgot to say before that I love big jewelry. I do want this right hand ring to look more less like some type of ultra thick band.
styles I lean towards:
- cigar bands
- Bali style rings
- filigree style
- medieval style
I love ornate style anything. Because I would like the band so think 10mm or more. Wearing rings knuckle to knuckle is normal for me. I’m looking for a statement piece.

I just found this on style me pretty the other day and immediately pinned it. I have never seen anything like it. I don’t knwo where it is from but I am sure you can get it custom made with stones to your liking.

@chica95110: This is a ring I have had bookmarked on etsy for a while. It comes in white gold and I spoke to Jessica at the shop when I asked if the stone colour could be changed as well and she said it could no problem. It’s called the Thorn Ring, which kind of has a medieval ring to it. I just love it! Here’s the link:

I worked with a local jewler to get my wedding band made. It was actually easier than I thought it would be! Look into smaller local jewlers that specialize in custom jewelry.

@lavenderstone: I am glad you showed me these pics. Really like both images but love the one on the bottom! I looked at gemvera before – but – I’m going to recheck them out!
