Steampunk is a way of life for many, it is only natural then that many choose to have a Steampunk theme on their big day. Steampunk weddings are unique and smothered in individuality. They focus on the Victorian era aesthetic and include the industrial theme.
Choosing your Steampunk Wedding Ring
One of the most important choices you will make for your Steampunk wedding is your style of ring. There are many different styles of Steampunk wedding rings, and hopefully this will help you to navigate what you want.
Steampunk wedding rings for men most commonly come in a silver or gunmetal colour. Although many contain gold gears and other industrial looking sections. Dark rings are also common for Steampunk weddings, black rings with copper and gold, or a jewel of some sort fit the aesthetic well. What makes a ring look as though it’s from the Steampunk aesthetic is the handmade look to it. This can be through the style of the ring, such as having cogs and some sort of industrial feature, or it can be the look of pins holding the ring together. The rings can look basically handmade, or futuristically created — either fits in with the Steampunk aesthetic.
