I wanna see your untraditional wedding ring, i.e. anything that isn’t a band to compliment your engagement ring. I have a antique engagement ring from the 40s and can’t find much that I like with it-bandwise. So I may do another “big” ring instead. I found a fun tear drop shaped one with white and champagne diamonds. Cannot find any decent pics of the ring I am thinking about but would love to see yours!
-Do you find you don’t/won’t wear it as much?
-Does it get in the way of anything?
-Do people think you are weird for not going with a traditional band?

I dont have anything at all.. yet.. but I fully plan on doing whatever I want. My e-ring (it’s made and waiting, I just dont have it yet) is a very classic rb w tapered baguettes set in plat but I defintiely want a plain gold band like the one my parents wear. It won’t go at all but I don’t care. I’ll also probably get a gold band w some scattered diamonds to tie everything in and then eventually some kind of all diamond anniversary band and then it’ll be too many and crazy looking but hey, who cares!

Are you looking for a thicker band? Thinner band?
My first wedding ring was “untraditional”, mainly as I did not have an ering to begin with. I also know several others, including my mum, who opted out of “traditional” rings for a wider, more detailed or different band. My original ring was a crossover design with a small pear sapphire, and pave diamonds on the crossover bands.
Are you looking for more of a vintage style? Modern style? Organic style?
Since I am not sure what you have in mind exactly, these are a few from Green Lake Jewelery. They do great work (lots of custom work!), have some very good policies, and do vintage, organic, handcrafted filligree, handcarved, modern, rustic, etc and in all sorts of metals and stones. I could paste their whole site here but will limit it. You can build a “page” there and show the designers what you like, and give them ideas (like based on the ring you described in your OP), and they can give you a quote and some ideas. They are very easy to deal with when making an online purchase:

wow those are beautiful! what i have in mind is not so much a band-probably something that would not be worn with my engagement ring. i love vintage styles-especially deco.
to some this might be an engagement ring and they would add a simple band to it. but i want it for a wedding ring-is that weird/stupid? will it annoy me later? i just don’t want a simple band. i am hoping someone has done this and loves their decision.
here is kind what my e ring looks like (the band part is yellow gold and the setting part is white gold).

Mine is a little non-traditional, they called it an “art deco” ring. I love it though!! Problem is the sides won’t allow a wedding band to go up against it so I’m still deciding how I will make the band work with it.

I am going back and forth as to wether or not mine is traditional. It is a ring, it does kind of go with my e-ring, but… it is not a circle (a closed circle at least) that whole a circle never ending never broken blah blah blah I guess probably shoudln’t be said at our wedding now that I think about it. this picture is all over every boards allready, but I am shamelessly posting it again.
