We all know the classic engagement ring. It sure is beautiful to have a platinum ring with a high set diamond in a traditional classic setting as the focal piece to your epic proposal, but nowadays, you aren’t restricted to the classic look to get her to say “Yes!”
If your favourite lady is looking for something different, rest easy. There is an endless array of unique engagement rings.
While a traditional setting with a classic white diamond is a beautiful custom, many contemporary brides are looking for a unique engagement ring. One-of-a-kind rings and colourful gemstones are an irresistible option for contemporary couples.
- Try Vintage
A vintage ring is a style that is considered to be elegant and sophisticated. It is perfect for old-school romantics. Instead of searching eBay or another online provider, try popping into your local jeweller. You’ll receive better value for your cash, without the risk.
- Go for colour
A coloured gemstone can serve as a way to set one’s engagement ring apart. They are eye-catching and bold. Popular choices include emerald, tourmaline and topaz. Set in a classic setting, you’ll have a bold look without a bold cost. Another way to use coloured stones, is in unconventional settings. This is one way to really add inspired colour to an already non-traditional engagement ring option.
- Think about diamonds differently
Diamond rings with alternative cuts, innovative designs and a host of colours are anything but traditional. Bold pink, bright yellow and moody grey are just some of the coloured diamonds that shine bright on engagement rings.
- Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
Go minimalist by being simple and subtle. In this way, we’re talking about ‘less is more.’ For the modest bride-to-be a minimalist ring could be a perfect choice. This design will never go out of style.
- Find her spirit
Love your free-spirited bride to be? The bohemian style engagement ring is a perfect fit. These often incorporate natural elements such as a rough diamond and flowing shapes. If your bride is more ‘off-beat’, you can find an array of bold rings that are truly irresistible.
- Skip the bling
Sparkle ain’t her thing? That’s ok! Go with plain bands with creative metal work for a bling-hater bride. Add a personal touch through an engraved message. Quote her favourite movie, her favourite poem or her favourite movie- really, anything goes as long as you know she’ll find meaning in it.
