Many women fantasize about their dream engagement ring and proposal for a long time! They picture their one-of-a-kind love proposing with a one-of-a-kind ring that is different from everyone else’s. However, finding a unique ring can be a bit of a challenge!
There are so many different kinds of engagement rings that finding one no one has bought before seems impossible. However, there are a lot of small details that you can customize and change in order to find an engagement ring that is different from the rest.
1. Alternative gemstones
One of the biggest changes you can make is to switch out the center stone, which is typically a diamond, with an alternative gemstone! Using a sapphire, ruby, opal or even her birthstone is a gorgeous way to make the ring special for her.
2. Fancy colored diamonds
Using the same theory, you can use a diamond for the center stone, but change the color of it! Diamonds come in multiple colors, with some of the rarest being blue, pink, green and red! While there are many different kinds of engagement rings, many of them utilize a white diamond, so you are sure to stand out with a different color.
3. Get it engraved
Getting your engagement ring engraved will make it unique not just in appearances but also in sentimental meaning. Plus, there are a ton of different engraving options to choose from. You can get a sweet message engraved, your heartbeat, a fingerprint or even just a heart symbol.
4. Mix metals
Another unique touch to consider is an engagement ring with dual metals. Getting a platinum ring with a rose gold halo can be the perfect balance between trendy and timeless. This is also a great option for brides who aren’t sure what metal to choose for their engagement ring!
5. Unique shapes
The most popular diamond shape by far is the round cut diamond, so for a more unique ring, change it up to a more unique cut. Some unique diamond cut options to choose from can be pear diamonds, marquise diamonds and heart shaped diamonds!
6. East-west setting
Many of the different kinds of engagement rings out there utilize a north-south ring setting so the diamond sits right side up. If you want to put a unique spin on it, literally, then use an east-west setting. This causes the diamond shape to flip its side and can make the diamond look bigger as it covers up more of your finger’s width. These settings tend to look best with fancy-shaped stones like an emerald, oval or marquise diamond!
7. Maximize stacking rings
Another way to make your engagement ring your own is to use stacking rings! Pick out some beautiful and unique stacking rings and wear them with your engagement ring to create a whole new look. Want to make the stack more permanent? You can get the stacking rings soldered onto your engagement ring to create one big, beautiful ring!
