Four of the Most Unique Engagement Rings
Guest post by: Jasmine Doherty
Engagement rings aren’t really something you search for unless you’re ready to take the next step with your partner, but when news broke out of some guy proposing to his girlfriend with a ring made out of his wisdom tooth, we’re wondering, what other kind of non-diamond ring trends are out there?
“The diamond-encrusted engagement is a timeless classic,” according to fashion aggregator Lyst, however we’re more interested in the extraordinary, and lately it seems like more people are straying away from the traditional and opting for something a little more unorthodox.
Diamond in the Rough
Women will always swoon over the princess cut, though the flawless cuts aren’t the only ones getting some love in the market with more people choosing raw and unfinished stones. These days, jewellers are opting for the rough-cut diamonds, replacing the immaculately cut centrepieces with naturally shaped diamonds for some more character.
Marquise Accent Stones
Why go for the single, round-cut accent stone when you can have a cluster of marquise-cut gems to stand out? The style is fashion forward and will have the other brides taking their eyes off their own rings and eyeing this unique accessory.
Diamonds may spell romance, but they aren’t the only precious stones that say forever, which can be seen with the mixture of gems in this particular trend. Bold, vibrant stones such as emeralds and sapphires are no longer taking the backseat in engagement rings as they take center stage with today’s brides that want to express their individuality and style.
Accent stones are beautiful, however some prefer subtler rings that can be worn on a daily basis. Among trends like coloured gems are diamond band rings, particularly ones featuring black diamonds that are just as stunning as the other diamond variations. The beauty of these slim bands is that they also can be stacked with other similar looking rings.
