In the past, tradition ruled the custom of marriage, from engagement to the “I dos.” But today more than ever, brides and grooms are shirking the norms and having a wedding how they want it. And that includes the ring. Engagement and wedding bands are now no longer territory for a traditional, cushion-cut diamond. Rings may house sapphires, emeralds, colored diamonds, or no stones at all. Solid gold band are being replaced with those sporting color and pattern. So think outside the box when considering what rings will mark your relationship.
