Inexpensive Gay Pride Wedding Rings (Or Engagement Rings for Gay Couples)

by JoHarrington

The love and commitment is real, yet there's another kind of Pride to exhibit in your same-sex union. These gay wedding rings score political points, cheaply!

There are many reasons to get married. True love is top of the list, as is the commitment to your relationship.

But there can be a more pragmatic impetus too. Married couples get tax breaks and a whole host of legal protections. This latter point is something which same-sex couples particularly know all about.

For some, all the above are mere bonuses in a marriage inspired by the politics of Gay Pride. Those hurriedly tying the knot in the vanguard of legislation may like to seal the deal with a rainbow ring for gay unions.

Why a Cheap Wedding Ring for a Same-Sex Ceremony?

They are ideal for when the fast changing pace of LGBT marriage equality laws have moved higher than your bank balance can easily accommodate!

It's for this reason that so many of the younger generation don't even bother with the official rites any more.

Once society moved past the point where 'living in sin' was, well, a sin, many couples prioritized other demands on their hard-earned cash. Like finding a home and furnishing it.

Common sense dictated that mutual home-making was a greater demonstration of their commitment to each other, than funding a single day's knees up for their family and friends. The prospective costs of the reception alone could pay for an extension to the garage or double-glazing for the windows.

But same-sex couples may feel greater pressures to officially tie the knot, and do so as quickly as possible.

Decades long battles for marriage equality laws are only just coming to fruition in many places. It seems daft to campaign for so long, only to disdain the opportunity to benefit from the eventual victory. For hundreds of couples, their gay marriage ceremony represents more than a love commitment to each other. It's the grand finale in their joint battle to have that commitment officially acknowledged.

Moreover, the ink is still wet on too many same-sex marriage bills. Appeals against them are being lodged. Precedents are yet to be set in law.  The imperative for gay couples to marry in those circumstances is huge.

While the pressure might be for a gay wedding ceremony to occur right now, weddings are still expensive.

Gay Pride Rainbow Wedding Ring for Under $40

Inexpensive wedding rings for same-sex couples bring down the budget with impunity.

Gay Pride rings are politically symbolic - a nod towards the long fight for gay equality in marriage, which led to their day at the altar. 

Who's worrying about how much anything cost in those circumstances? Let alone the highly significant rainbow commitment rings!

Right now, it's the union that counts. So don't let your bank balance hold you back from your appointment with the registrar.

Get a cheap same-sex wedding ring now. It will have priceless sentimental value, whether it's gold, pewter or the ring from a soda can.

And you could always replace it with gold a few years down the line, when your finances have recovered.

Gold Plated Same-Sex Wedding Bands for Under $26

Blithely decorated with entwined same gender symbols, these gay wedding bands look the part. Yet, at the time of writing, they will only set you back $25.99 a piece!

The rings are made from stainless steel plated in gold. The Double Mars wedding band (right, above) is designed for male couples, while its Double Venus (left, above) counterpart is naturally a lesbian wedding ring.

Jet Black Gay and Lesbian Pride Wedding Ring for Under $26

Buying a cheap gay wedding band means being beset with worries that it'll fall apart within weeks. Not a brilliant outcome for a piece of jewelry that is supposed to symbolize a life-long commitment to each other.

But same-sex grooms and lesbian brides need not concern themselves here.

Forged from Titanium steel, this jet black Gay Pride wedding band is built to last. The central band lays out the iconic rainbow motif with highly polished Cubic Zirconia stones.

Gay Pride Rainbow Wedding Rings for Between $20 - $25

These could double as same-sex engagement rings too!

More Cubic Zirconia stones aplenty in this rainbow array of gay engagement rings, or wedding bands, depending upon your personal preference.  The colorful gemstones are polished to perfection and arranged in the familiar, and highly symbolic, representation of Gay Pride.

The first ring has been crafted out of Titanium steel, while the other two are stainless steel.  They look very beautiful though.

Lesbian Engagement Rings for Under $20

Though billed as engagement rings, I see no good reason why these couldn't also be used as lesbian wedding bands. Or indeed for gay men too, if they wanted to wear jewelry this pretty!

The first piece is the Lesbian Love Step Rainbow Ring. Crafted from brass, the ring has been rendered silver by a plating of Rhodium. The LGBT rainbow is once again created from Cubic Zirconia.

On the left hand side, the Lesbian Pride Rainbow Engagement Ring is my favorite of the whole collection. The band is made out of stainless steel with more Cubic Zirconia inserts.

Wedding Band for Gay Men Who Love Their Bears

At least one groom will be resplendently hairy. That's all to be celebrated when a man has fallen in love with his 'bear'!

This Bear Pride Wedding Band has been created out of stainless steel, especially for grooms who like their husbands fabulously furry-faced.

Tan, white and black stripes mirror the Bear Pride flag. Familiar to all who embrace Gay Culture, it represents the three colors found internationally on bear furs in nature.

But more to the point, it's about inclusiveness, regardless of where you are in the world. Particularly if you have a beard.

Stainless Steel Gay Symbols Wedding Bands for Under $10

The poorer cousins of the gold-plated versions further above, these wedding bands for same-sex are true bargains. 

At the time of writing, they have been reduced from $15 to a mere $6.95. For the price of a couple of coffees apiece, you could have wedding rings to exchange at a same-sex wedding ceremony!

These hypoallergenic, and cost-effective, gay wedding rings are crafted from stainless steel.

The engraved pattern entwines internationally recognizable gender symbols. The male ring, on the right, is destined for two grooms to wear; while the female one (left) was designed as a wedding band for two brides.

Rainbow Gay Christian Wedding Ring for Under $8

'God is with us, who can be against us?' is the plaintive legend, etched in Latin, on this wedding ring for gay Christians. The same question is repeated in English on the underside.

Crafted from stainless steel, with a rainbow laser finish, this Gay Pride Christian wedding band is in short supply. Get in fast if you want to grab one of the few remaining pieces!

The one Bible verse that is bound to turn up when discussing homosexuality with Christians is Leviticus 18:22 so let's have a closer look at this one.
Did God really destroy the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah because their citizens indulged in homosexual behavior or is there something else to this story? Read on to find out!

Lesbian Wedding Ring for Under $5

Just about as cheap as you can get in inexpensive lesbian wedding bands, this one currently comes in at a mere $3.95!  I've bought more costly bars of chocolate...

The Gay Pride Symbol Wedding Band for lesbians is flat forged stainless steel, decorated with a circular pattern. That's based on the international female symbol.

I've been unable to find a version of this wedding ring for gay men. Sorry gentlemen!

I can see why that would be the case in a hospital. You wouldn't want to deliver a patient back to the ward, only to have to rush them back into surgery because you think your diamond ring might be lodged in his colon.

WordChazer on 02/24/2014

Working in a hospital adminstrative division gives me a whole new viewpoint on health and safety. My colleagues are all in clinical short sleeve whites or surgical greens. I can get away with long sleeves as long as I am not on front line reception duty with the patients. My husband has a short sleeved uniform in his job, which I am envious of. At least the rules for my role allow me to continue to wear my jewellery. Other colleagues aren't so lucky.

JoHarrington on 02/24/2014

I've never considered wedding rings in terms of health and safety. Which shows the kind of jobs I've had to risk assess for!

WordChazer on 02/24/2014

Jethraw, the ONLY piece of jewellery my husband wears is his wedding ring. No necklaces, chains, earrings, watches, bracelets or other bling. I have my standard work safe gold and silver gold wear which is swapped out for safety at times or added to as necessary. My fingers don't like heat so I often have to leave my rings off when I'm on holiday or else the rings are stuck on for days...owie.

JoHarrington on 02/24/2014

I always cite Emily Wilding Davison, when people ask me why I still vote. As soon as she went under that horse, I lost the right not to vote.

The Cubic Zirconia rainbow ring is very pretty.

WordChazer on 02/24/2014

I love that Cubic Zirconia rainbow ring channel setting. I doubt my parents would have approved though, so hence the white gold channel setting my husband bought for my engagement ring. I think you're right, at least some gay couples are getting married because they now have the right to, in much the same way as I always vote because the Suffragettes fought for that ability on my behalf. Oh, and don't mention paying for the rellies to have a knees up at our expense. It's a sore point among his vast family that we only invited two of his family to our wedding. I would also imagine that the rainbow would be a symbol of the day and maybe a ring to wear at a festival or other knees up weekend where losing your gold band would tear you apart. I have a purple initial necklace which I wear instead of my gold cross on such occasions.

JoHarrington on 02/23/2014

I'd certainly want my ring for keeps to be slightly more upmarket too. I can't fault you on that one.

I should imagine that the majority of gay people getting married aren't looking to wear Gay Pride marriage bands. It would be the usual gold bands, signet rings and gemstones, exactly the same as heterosexual couples.

Or, indeed, platinum!

Jethraw on 02/23/2014

Whilst some of these rings are okay, I personally (as an open homosexual) wouldn't opt for any of them. Call me silly but for starters I want a bit more of a pricey ring. I'm not one for jewellery, and I know I'm definitely pro-marriage, so I'd like the one piece of bling I'm going to be wearing - especially one I'd intend to wear for life, to be a little more upmarket!

Second of all it's totally taste oriented. I personally wouldn't go for any of these rings as they're very much out-and-proud rings. I wouldn't want to brag about the fact I'm married to a man. I'm pro marriage equality because it means I'm going to be able to marry someone that I love. For me, the fact that would be a man is not important, so I wouldn't feel the need to let people know through my wedding ring.

A simple platinum ring is all I want, but that's obviously a matter for the individual.

JoHarrington on 02/23/2014

That was really unique, wasn't it? As for casual jewelry, I could see them working well in Gay Pride parades or same-sex marriage protests - pro gay marriage, of course!

Me on 02/23/2014

I like the rainbow laser finish the best. I'm not sure if I'd wear one of the rainbow gem rings as a wedding band but they'd be fun as casual jewellery for the price.
