Find Engagement rings for your love @ Wyatt Austin Jewelers


June 1, 2014 same sex couples may be married in Illinois.  It’s a law now, but that doesn’t mean that people in love aren’t already wearing wedding/commitment jewelry.  Wyatt Austin Jewelers is happy to show some of the wedding jewelry that we’ve already designed for several same sex couples.

Custom designed wedding rings for lesbian couple.  We used their diamonds and gemstones to create their rings. One-of-a-kind

We had a lot of fun working with this couple.  We also made a couple of pendants for them with some additional gemstones they wanted to use.  Everything we made for them was one-of-a-kind and they loved them.

Note the detail in the inset. “Always” is how long they will love each other.


Custom Diamond Engagement Ring

The two rings above are being worn by a lesbian couple.  The first ring with the single large baguette diamond on the sides was a total surprise. She was so nervous picking out the diamond and designing the ring.  On her initial visit, she brought in a family member.  Then she brought in a friend on her second visit.  After that, she felt more comfortable with what she was doing and had much more confidence.  I’ll tell you what, it’s not easy buying something for the single most important person in your life who will wear the ring the rest of her life.

Man-gagement Ring

Man-gagement Ring with Diamond wedding band

These two pictures are of a ring for a man.  The two textured bands represent their two lives connected by a single diamond. The diamond, which is the hardest natural gemstone shows the strength of this couple’s bond.  When they marry, the interchangeable diamond wedding ring will fill the gap between the tow bands.  There can be multiple wedding rings, that can be made of any color metal with any color gemstone.  For example, he can have additional wedding rings for times he may want to wear rubies or sapphires.

We’ve made rings with words inside.  We’ve designed rings with a couple’s initials on either side of the center.  One time, we set black diamonds in the shape of an initial under the center diamond setting.  We placed a pink heart under the center diamond.  We designed a ring with butterflys on either side of the center.  There’s really no end to what we can do.  Everyone wants to add their personal detail to their ring that sets it apart from all other rings.  No two rings are ever made the same.

One-of-a-kind.  One-at-a-time.  Just how you like it.
