Whether you want a diamond ring with an eye-catching design, or an alternative engagement ring featuring gemstones, here are some of our top styles that will ensure your ring stands out from the crowd.
1. Gemstone Engagement Rings
While diamonds are truly special, and are the traditional stone of choice for engagement rings, diamond engagement rings are not your only option. In fact, many brides choosefor the centrepiece of their ring, as they offer a personal statement and unique symbolism. Read on to discover some of the most popular gemstones for engagement rings.
2. Rose Gold Engagement Rings
Another way to have a unique touch of colour in your engagement ring is to opt for a rose gold setting. While rose gold is a beautiful and much-loved shade, it’s not as popular as yellow gold or white gold for engagement rings, so it’s sure to give you the unique look you’re after.
Rose gold is a beautiful setting for diamond engagement rings, and you can find unique cluster, halo, and multi-stone designs that allow the rose gold to shine through for a radiant look. It’s also the perfect match for morganite engagement rings, for an all-over blush.
3. Unique Diamond Rings
Try a halo ring with a floral or vintage-inspired design, a square shape, or a ring with fancy-shaped diamonds. Round brilliant is the most popular and timeless cut for diamonds, so if you choose a ring with baguette, emerald, pear or marquise shaped diamonds, your engagement ring is guaranteed to have a point of interest.
Can any ring be an alternative engagement ring?
Engagement rings are, most importantly, a symbol of love and commitment between you and your partner. Therefore, your engagement ring should first and foremost be a ring that you love; whether that is a diamond ring, a coloured gemstone ring, or whichever style of ring you prefer.
Ultimately it comes down to your personal choice. If you choose a coloured gemstone ring, just be aware that not all gemstones are equal in terms of hardness and durability, so some stones will require extra care to ensure they give you a lifetime of shine.
