Wedding season is here and this is typically our busiest time of the year for making wedding rings for our customers. If you are searching for a unique symbol of your love and commitment, our handmade inlay wedding rings are a great choice. All of our rings are created by hand in our Arizona jewelry studio using only the finest materials and craftsmanship. We offer a wide range of inlay stone choices including turquoise, dinosaur bone, black onyx and lab created opal and many other colorful stones with or without colorful gemstones to accent the inlay. Take a minute to browse through our website www.HilemanSilverJewelry.com and check out our wedding ring designs and keep in mind that any of the ring designs you see on our site can be made in sterling silver, yellow or white gold, stainless steel or platinum. Many of our customers choose our dinosaur bone bands as their wedding rings with our turquoise wedding rings being a close second. We have a variety of dinosaur bone colors to choose from ranging from grays to reds. What could be more unique than a dinosaur bone wedding ring! Our wedding ring designs are made to order in your specific ring size, inlay stone choice and metal selection so we will need 4 to 6 weeks of lead time to get your rings completed in time. All of our rings are available in his and hers, hers and hers, and his and his wedding sets. If by chance you don’t see exactly the ring you are looking for, contact us about making the custom wedding ring of your dreams.
Turquoise and spiderweb turquoise rings are one of our most popular choices for wedding rings and wedding ring sets. Our turquoise wedding ring sets are available in a variety of colors with and without the spiderweb pattern. Our most popular spiderweb turquoise wedding ring sets are inlaid with spiderweb turquoise from Kingman, Arizona. This turquoise has a very tight spiderweb pattern and the color of the blue ranges from light blue to a darker blue and lighter blue mix. The colors and pattern of the turquoise varies from stone to stone and sometimes changes with every saw blade slice through the stone so you can expect some variation in this natural material. These variations make your turquoise wedding ring set unique and virtually one of a kind. Here is an example of our favorite turquoise ring set inlaid with plain blue turquoise and Kingman spiderweb turquoise in Continuum sterling silver. The man’s wedding ring is 6mm wide and the woman’s ring is 4.5mm wide. Both rings taper slightly toward the bottom of the ring and are stamped .925 sterling silver and hand signed “MMH” on the inside.
We also have several turquoise engagement ring options that would look great with our turquoise wedding rings if you are looking to create a bridal set. Center stone options include white sapphire, white topaz, Moissanite, blue topaz and diamond. We also offer metal upgrades to 14 karat gold in both white and yellow as well as platinum. If you don’t see exactly the stone combination you are looking for, contact us for a quote on customization.

After years of working with customers to create their dream wedding rings, we have found that many couples are compromising on the most important piece of jewelry they will ever wear. Not necessarily compromising because of cost, but because of the differing personal tastes of the couples. Many couples come to us and are interested in matching wedding bands but struggle to agree on the style, shape, width and stone choices. Usually one of the individuals is more conservative and the idea of purchasing a wedding ring as nontraditional as an inlay ring is already stretching the limits of their comfort zone. While the other partner may be more outgoing and looking for a wedding ring that is big and bold and not at all what the other person would choose.
Why compromise and end up with a wedding ring set that is really not exactly what either one of you want? We suggest that each person select the ring style that they will love and will be excited to wear for the rest of their lives together. We can then work with the couple to choose elements that will tie the rings together. The rings can be different widths or styles and still share the same central gemstones such as white sapphires or the same inlay such as turquoise or dinosaur bone that will unify the set. Many couples are choosing wedding bands in different widths because maybe one likes a wider look and the other a narrow ring width. They may choose to have us inlay the rings in totally different colors of the same type of stone. Many men like our darker gray dinosaur bone and choose it for the inlay in their ring while some women feel our dinosaur bone with pink hues is more their style. Although the inlay stones are totally different colors, both of the rings are inlaid in dinosaur bone and make a great looking wedding ring set.
The point is, don’t feel like you are limited in your wedding ring choices because of what is popular or traditional. These are your wedding rings that you will wear for a long time and they should not compromise your personality or individuality. Browse our Hileman wedding rings and wedding ring sets and let us work with you to create wedding rings that are uniquely you.
There are magazines, webzines, and blogs all about the “Alternative” wedding style, which simply means less cookie-cutter ceremonies and more weddings that match the personality of the couple. The “natural” bride, the “pagan” bride, and “same-sex” couples are just a few of the kinds of couples becoming more the norm than ever before in history.
Engagement and wedding bands have always been one of the most traditional and classic parts of the ceremony. “Something old, something new…” has often referred to a passed down engagement ring or set of wedding bands from the bride’s grandparents. The couple may have chosen to accept the gift of one or the other to save money, and because it means a lot to the giver, but may feel a bit left out of their own special day.
Today, more couples are realizing that the wedding day, belongs to them. It’s nice to try and make concessions for parents and close relatives, but ultimately, it is the couple who should be ecstatic about their own unique wedding. Choosing unique engagement rings and wedding bands are a way to express yourselves and your individuality without making a huge scene. If you are not the types to go completely outside the box you can plan a traditional wedding and walk down the aisle with a unique wedding band option like a dinosaur bone ring.
For many alternative couples who may also practice alternative forms of spirituality, they may find it to be a true sentiment of their love for nature and the Earth: to wear something that was once a part of nature. Many couples today, whether they consider themselves alternative or not, are seeking other ring options besides diamonds. Colored gemstones, unique inlay materials and non-traditional metals like stainless steel or sterling silver can add to the individuality of their wedding rings
Turquoise is also a beautiful option for engagement rings and wedding bands, as it signifies strength, protection, and healing. There are a multitude of gemstones and natural materials that have significant mystical and spiritual meaning. No matter what background, culture, or religion you practice, gemstones are a fantastic choice to make your wedding bands stand out and memorable to everyone who sees them.
Although you may not want to have your wedding in the midst of a circus or haunted house, you can go outside the norm with your ring choices to express your true personality as a couple.
We recently completed several new choices for turquoise wedding ring sets. The first wedding set features blue turquoise in the wedding ring and turquoise accented by moissanite in the engagement ring. The engagement ring is a little over 6mm wide at the top with a .68 carat moissanite channel set in the center. The bright white moissanite is an affordable and conflict free alternative to a diamond. The matching turquoise wedding ring is 4.5mm wide with just a slight taper to allow it fit nicely up against the engagement ring. A matching his and hers wedding ring set could also be made by request. This sterling silver ring set is also available in 14k white or yellow gold as well as a new Continuum sterling silver alloy. Continuum sterling silver is much more durable than standard sterling silver and is also highly tarnish resistant. We highly recommend upgrading for the added durability it will provide for a daily wear wedding ring. This turquoise wedding ring set is available through our Etsy shop or HilemanSilverJewelry.com.
The second new turquoise wedding ring set is the same style with just a couple of changes. The turquoise in both the engagement ring and the wedding ring is Kingman birdseye. The turquoise is more blue than the first set and has a very faint veining that is just a little darker than the body color. The turquoise engagement ring features a 1 carat blue topaz that looks great with the blue color of the turquoise. This set also is available in gold or Continuum sterling silver for an additional charge. A matching man’s turquoise band is also an option for this set. This set is available through HilemanSilverJewelry.com or our Etsy shop.
