Exquisite Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

If perfectly balanced engagement rings are not your cup of tea, you may find that asymmetrical rings offer something a bit more your style. As the name implies, these rings do not follow standard design principles. Instead, they feature off-centre stones, interesting arrangements, off-beat designs, and, very often, unusual details that further add to their charm.

These rings are popular with future brides who prefer a modern bohemian style over a classic style. Keep reading to find out how asymmetrical engagement rings infuse interesting visual detail into their design.

Fall in Love With These Quirky Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

Ideal for those who prefer to colour outside of the lines, asymmetrical engagement rings are proof that rings can be just as beautiful without being symmetrical and balanced. Here are some lovely asymmetrical rings to inspire your ring choice.

Three Stone Twist

The style is a great choice for any bride-to-be who wants to add just a little asymmetrical charm without going too overboard. The twist style engagement ring is a popular choice in many ring designs. The three stone design is also popular, symbolising your past, present and future. Adding these two styles together creates a visually interesting ring that is still simple enough to be classic and understated.

Delicate Side Stone

If you have a love for delicate rings, you are sure to love the subtly of this design. A round centre diamond is set on a fine gold band, with scattered side stones added to one side that add detail. While this ring looks gorgeous in yellow gold, it would be equally beautiful in platinum, white gold or rose gold. You could further mix things up by choosing coloured diamonds or your choice of stones for the centre and side stones or even add a single coloured diamond to the side for emphasis.

Minimal Clusters

Another pretty ring in the minimal ring style, this ring uses tiny diamonds that are clustered in an interesting off-centre arrangement. This ring also has a delicate band and very small stones rather than one large stone. Whether kept in cool tones of platinum and white diamond or done in warmer tones such as morganite and rose gold or coloured diamonds and yellow gold, this ring is elegant and feminine.

Ruby and Sapphire

This one is sure to appeal to those who adore all things vintage, old-fashioned, and dramatic. A spectacular dark sapphire takes centre stage, with an equally impressive ruby sitting to its side. With a bold setting and a simple gold band, the combination of colours is what makes this engagement ring so eye-catching. This style would work with just about any type of stone and metal, however. Warm toned coloured diamonds, emeralds, white diamonds, morganite, moonstone or even tanzanite would be equally magical.

Infinity Baguette

Perfect for feminine brides who favour all things ladylike, this delightful ring uses an ultra-romantic infinity sign and a simple baguette to create a sweet ring that is interesting and oh-so-charming. The rose gold metal further adds to the ring's femininity but yellow and white gold would work, too. Tiny pave stones add extra sparkle while a morganite stone as the baguette could be replaced by a white diamond or a coloured diamond.

Modern Twist

Brides who prefer their rings modern and understated will adore this modern twist ring that includes just two small stones on each end of the twisted band. A desaturated rose gold works especially well for this ring, adding a hint of colour without going overboard. White gold, yellow gold and platinum would also work well. Use white diamonds or add a pop of colour to one or both of the stones to mix things up a bit.

Pink Halo

Exceptionally girly and unapologetically bold, this halo ring has a band that is set just a little off-centre. This adds interest while keeping the overall ring design classic and timeless. A coloured pink diamond takes centre stage with tiny white diamonds adding sparkle on the halo and the pave encrusted band. This style would work equally well with a white centre diamond or even a precious stone such as emerald or sapphire.

Black Diamond

Another dramatic ring, this black diamond ring is set on a dark rose gold band, with a few tiny white diamonds flanking the centre stone. The cut of the centre stone is kept simple, which helps the black diamond stand out to perfection. Although it is the colour of the stone that makes this ring, you could try a stone of just about any colour for a similarly eye-catching effect.
