The Ring

One of my twitter followers recently asked me if I had any advice for choosing a non-traditional wedding ring….and so I say this, it’s important to choose something that you’re not going to tire of quickly. Stick to simple and classic or choose a designer or design that has a significant meaning to you. You can often find a local jeweler to make something custom too.

When it came time for my husband and I to choose bands we went with Canadian designer Konzuk. For me, Konzuk’s designs are symbolic of our time together living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Karen Konzuk aspires to create jewelry that is more wearable architecture than simple accessory. A fellow graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Karen also designed the school’s alumni ring. Below are a collection of rings I have been loving more recently. {Clockwise from top right: Hazeline Solitaire by Anna Sheffield, Black Diamond Seed Ring by Steven Alan, Simple Twig Set by Colby June Jewelry}
