Customized wedding bands have been a popular alternative to readymade rings for a while now. In the past, these personalized pieces usually featured minimal alterations, like unique stone placement or subtle interior engravings. Now, however, customers have gotten a bit more creative, as particularly evident in the growing trend of the fingerprint ring.
Recently, this phenomenon gained attention on Reddit, where user Im_High_Tech shared a photo of his wedding ring, a white gold band adorned with a simplified engraving of his wife's fingerprint. Inspired by a wooden version he had come across in the past, he came up with a one-of-a-kind way to make his wedding vows even more personal. “Several years ago, I saw some guy made a similar design using wood and I thought it would be great to make my wedding band more unique than the stuff you buy at the store,” he explains on Reddit. “So I got in contact with a company online that designs custom jewelry, and asked them to make it out of white gold with black plating on the ridges.”
His picture-perfect post was well-received, with numerous users expressing a desire to follow suit for their own nuptials. Additionally, his photo prompted others to share images of their own fingerprint rings, solidifying this romantic gesture's role as a a up-and-coming trend.
