When we were searching for lesbian wedding rings…
…we wanted to know they came from a ‘good home’!
My wifey and I knew we’d be wearing our wedding rings for the rest of our lives, and we wanted to be able to look at them and think: “You came from a good place.” We’re not just talking about gay jewellers, but also online stores that welcome gay clients. So here is our list of gorgeous lesbian wedding rings from gay friendly stores. We’ve either bought jewellery from them ourselves, or we have talked with them and they are cool and gay-friendly. All rings are returnable (unless you get them engraved) so you can purchase with confidence.
(N.B If you’re buying lesbian wedding rings online, check out this Ring Size Chart to make sure you get a perfect fit.)
Gay friendly online jewellers
1. Love and Pride (www.loveandpride.com)
Why we love this online store
Love and Pride is our all-time favorite online jewellery store. The collective dream of a group of artists and entrepreneurs, it’s a premium designer destination for people who believe in equality, diversity and tolerance. A donation from every sale goes to support the fight for equality.
Love and Pride – our top picks
A. White gold grooved lesbian wedding band
This 14k White Gold Grooved Band is one of my all-time favorite lesbian wedding rings. It combines the traditional, simple wedding band design with the modernity of grooved white gold. The price is very good too – currently $265.
B. Female insignia combination lesbian wedding ring
I was so happy to see Love and Pride’s combination lesbian wedding ring. Combination rings are two rings in one. The two rings are made to fit together, in this case creating a diamond out of diamonds. Get the set, and wear one each. (You can also purchase them individually if you need different sizes.)
C. Rainbow ring
If you haven’t guessed from my other posts, I looooove titanium. That’s why I have to include this titanium rainbow ring in my top selections. This one has a slim lick of rianbow inset in the titanium – a sleek and sophisticated way to declare your love and pride. A darling ring.
2. Pictures on gold (www.PicturesOnGold.com)
If you’re after a plain gold wedding band, consider www.PicturesOnGold.com. I was a bit wary of them initially because they have some hardcore religious jewellery on their site, but they really are lovely people. They are very supportive of gay and lesbian weddings. They have lovely plain wedding bands like the one below for around $300, and are very keen to work with gay and lesbian couples – and the best bit is, for $30, they’ll happily engrave your lesbian wedding band with your own message. (But don’t get it engraved unless you are absolutely sure of your ring size – you can’t return it once it’s engraved.)
Traditional gold lesbian wedding band
Some lesbian friends of ours in New Zealand who are getting married under the newly changed laws decided to go with the absolutely traditional plain gold wedding band, so there was no mistake about what kind of ring it was. I really like that approach! Even better, they had the words “I do” and the date engraved inside. So beautiful. To see this ring go to the Pictures on gold site and search for ID PG73997. Depending on the size you need, you’re looking at only $300 or so.
Claddagh with a “Game of Thrones” twist
If you go to the Pictures on Gold website and search for Catalog ID: PG74289, you’ll find this mouth-wateringly delicious ring. Yes, I am a bit partial to the Claddagh, I don’t deny it (see my post about Lesbian Commitment and Promise Rings to find out why) but this is such an interesting twist on the theme. The stylized, medieval depiction of the Claddagh symbol gives this wedding ring an other-wordly aspect, so that you wouldn’t be surprised to see it on the finger of one of the Stark family in Westeros. Around the $800 mark at Pictures on Gold.
3. Shop Irish (www.shopirish.com)
Why we love this online store
I think my Irish heritage is showing now, but I have to include a few gorgeous items from Shop Irish. They are, of course, very gay friendly and happy to work with lesbians couples to find the perfect ring.
A. Solid white-gold wedding ring with trinity design
This solid white gold wedding ring is solid enough to suit tomboys and intricate enough for the glamor girls, so this one would work for couples who want to wear the same design. I looove the trinity design engraved into the gold. The trinity design featured in pagan, and later Christian iconography, and speaks of timelessness and eternity.
B. Emerald and diamond claddagh ring
At the upper end of the price spectrum is this heirloom-quality emerald and diamond claddah ring. As you may know already, I am in love with the claddagh, and both me and my wifey still have the first cheap claddaghs that we bought for each other. Of course, this one is a leeeeetle more expensive, but for a lifelong wedding ring, it makes me drool. My grandmother’s engagement ring was studded with emeralds, so that might have something to do with its appeal. :)
