Unique Wedding Bands That Reflect Your Love Story | GLDN

Not to be dramatic, but your wedding bands are some of the most important rings you’ll ever wear. Day in, day out, for every occasion under the sun. And they’re personal, too—which means they should truly reflect you and your relationship! While there are some gorgeous wedding bands out there (we’d never throw any shade), sometimes they miss the mark on being meaningful. That’s where our symbolic, personalized wedding bands come in.

Personalized Wedding Band Ideas

Wedding Bands with Dates

Customize your rings with the day you two met, the day you started dating or your wedding day—whichever moment you want to keep close. We love the idea of using Roman numerals for a subtler, sleeker look if modern, minimal wedding bands are more your thing. The best-selling Rhone Band, medium-width Thames Band and bold Grande Band are ideal for adding dates.


Wedding Bands with Initials

Another subtle-yet-meaningful idea: personalize your wedding band with your shared last initial (if you decided to go that route) or wear each other’s initials so you’ll be together whenever, wherever.

The Personalized Floral Frame Band and Personalized Olive Branch Band both frame one initial with a floral flourish that’s symbolic and personal all at once. Want to add two initials to your wedding band? The Personalized Meuse Band is perfect for that!


Alternative Wedding Band Ideas

Floral Wedding Bands

Which flowers capture your relationship? From roses to sunflowers to wildflowers, our My Garden Meuse Band can be personalized with your choice of up to seven symbolic flowers (with over 25 to choose from)!. 💐 Feature the flowers from your wedding, the flowers that grow in the area where you two met, or any other blooms that mean something to you.



Nature-Inspired Wedding Bands

The olive branch is said to symbolize peace and hope, the monstera is said to symbolize energy and artistry, and the willow is said to symbolize enchantment and protection. Do any of these speak to you or symbolize your relationship? If so, our Foliage Meuse Band may be the unique wedding band for you! Each hand-personalized ring features illustrated leaves wrapping all the way around the band—a dainty wedding band for the nature-lovers.

Celestial Wedding Bands

An otherworldly way to remind your partner they’re your sun, moon and stars. Our 4mm wide Celestial Meuse Band and 2mm wide Stardust Ring are two of our favorites picks for enchanting wedding bands…that are still timeless and wearable enough for every day. Like our other alternative wedding bands, each symbol is hand-stamped in our studio so no two rings are exactly alike—because no two love stories are exactly alike, either.

Textured & Hammered Wedding Bands

AKA the streamlined way to add a little texture and shine to your wedding stack. Our Meuse Band and Thames Band come in a hand-hammered finish that reflects the light like no other (and will hide any scratches, if you’re someone who’s rough on their jewelry 😉)! The Milly Band is another favorite for subtle details—a chunky, gently rounded band with milgrain details that are modern and traditional at the same time.

Which wedding band width is right for you?

Our personalized and symbolic wedding bands range from 2mm to 5.5mm wide! If you prefer dainty rings (or want to layer your ring with an engagement ring), we recommend sticking to a ring that’s 4mm wide or below. If you prefer a bold, chunky wedding band, anything 4mm and up is your best bet.
