Unusual wedding rings in NYC?

Any suggestions for jewelery stores in the NYC area that have unusual wedding bands? The Clay Pot in Brooklyn is a perfect example of what we're looking for. Also maybe interested in vintage. Where should we go? Thanks!

Check this out. My brother-in-law and his wife forged their own wedding rings here. Took them about a day, and they loved the experience. It was featured in the NY Times a few months later, so not sure how crazy it is now to get an appointment...

Erica Weiner has many antique, often one-of-a-kind wedding bands.

I got my husband's ring at The Clay Pot! We snagged my own band at Fort Greene's Thistle & Clover, which carries rings by Bittersweets NY. I personally love the diamond and twig ring, and if I were a diamond-wearing person would have sprung for that. I wound up getting a gem-less band that looks like a twig and it's very pretty.

Other places that have cool, wedding-appropriate jewelry are Catbird in Williamsburg (the 5th Ave branch doesn't have as much jewelry), Fitzgerald, and NCH Studio in Boerum Hill.

For vintage and estate, I can *highly* recommend Erie Basin in Red Hook and Doyle & Doyle in the LES.

Looks like they might have moved, but when it comes to unique vintage jewelery in NYC, C'est Magnifique is Mecca.

We're getting ours from etsy.com, fwiw.

Seconding Fitzgerald. Got our engagement and wedding rings there, and everything is beautiful and unique. Michael and Hiroyo are also wonderful to work with.
