LOLIDE: Unique modern jewelry, celebrating all partnerships
Hers and hers. His and his. Hers and his. All of the above; none of the above. Why limit yourself with labels, when all you really want is stunning jewelry to celebrate your union?
I’ve made gender-inclusive rings from day one, driven by my personal experience of struggling with the gender binary and never fitting into either box. Inclusivity, visibility, and respect for all forms of non-traditional weddings – however you choose to define the term – are driving concepts behind my work at Lolide. I am committed to offering my customers a wide selection of modern, elegant engagement and wedding rings that work in countless combinations.
Breaking the boundaries of traditional engagement and wedding jewelry
We are all painfully familiar with our cultures’ lingering, antiquated formula for buying wedding jewelry: she gets a big rock, he gets a plain band, everybody moves on.
You know what I say? It’s time to throw out the binary, sexist assumptions that go along with the traditional approach. Whoever you are, whomever you love, you are welcome here. My goal is to help my customers express themselves with rings that reflect their personal style – and their special bond – in a way that they’ll be proud to wear every single day. Here are a few ways I do that :
- Unisex rings: these rings are for anyone who wants to stand apart from the gender constraints of traditional wedding jewelry. They are for the woman wants something bold, modern, and strong to reflect her personality; for the guy who wants some sparkle on his finger to match the twinkle in his eye; and for non-binary folks who want to wear a symbol of love – without a gender label attached.
- Men’s engagement bands: an increasing number of my male customers are expressing interest in having engagement rings as a precursor to their big day. These are categorized as men’s rings due to their weight and width, but are appropriate for anyone looking for a heavier ring.
- Non-traditional styles: these bold rings make a statement on the hands of either, both, or all partners. Details like mixed metals, colored stones, rivets and facets mean you will never mistake your ring for someone else’s.

“I just found your store and I *love* your work. My fiancé and I were engaged in Seattle, and I think it would be so meaningful to have rings from an artist in one of our favorite places. I also appreciate your support of the LGBT community! Thank you for putting that on your page. It means so much as a gay couple to know we can work with people on our wedding that are supportive of us.”
