If you’re the type of bride-to-be that favours more unusual engagement rings versus conventional styles, finding just the right ring is essential. Although many classic styles will never date, many newer styles are made for brides who shy away from the ordinary. To help you find inspiration for your ring choice, here are some of our favourite eye-catching engagement rings.
Fall in Love With These Eye-Catching Engagement Rings
Unusual details, interesting stone combinations, unique settings, and other elements make these engagement rings bold, beautiful, and ideal for brides who prefer their jewellery to stand out for all the right reasons.
Gold Double Ring
White sapphires and diamonds sparkle in this double ring. With a fine gold band, this ring has off-set stones that further add to its design. The combination of white sapphire and yellow gold add plenty of warmth. This ring would work equally well in rose gold, white gold or platinum.
Twisted Open Shank
Twisted designs are always a good choice for less conventional styles. In this design, three white gold bands intertwine, forming a twisted, open shank. Tiny pave diamonds add lots of sparkle to one part of the band, while a centre diamond brings the design together to form a flowing, gorgeous ring.
Rounded Band Solitaire
From a distance, this delicate solitaire ring looks fairly standard. A closer look reveals a band made of tiny rounded gold beads that are melded together. The result is a gently rounded ring that has plenty of visual detail as well as tactile appeal. This ring would work in any metal, with any type of stone.
Platinum Pave Twist
Another twisted style, this pave platinum ring is subtle, despite its interesting shape and design. The main stone is small enough to not detract from the band, which in itself makes the ring visually unique. The combination results in a ring that sparkles in all the right places.
Moon Tear Sapphire
This Sofia Zakia ring is perfect for boho brides looking for a romantic, whimsical ring. A sapphire takes centre stage, with a gentle dip and tiny diamonds. The fine gold band allows the centre stone and design to stand out without being too over the top. Gold works well with the deep blue sapphire but any stone and metal combination would work.
Turquoise Three Stone
Turquoise is not a stone commonly used in this type of ring. It certainly has an eye-catching appeal, however. In this ring design, a large oval turquoise stone is flanked by two trillion cut diamonds. These three stones are set on a gold band, which contrasts perfectly with the turquoise.
Gold Ginkgo Pave
For a truly different ring, this design is sure to stand out. Delicate ginkgo leaves are positioned at each end of an open gold band, with tiny pave diamonds scattered throughout the ring to add subtle sparkle. The yellow gold helps to add warmth to the design. Rose gold would also work well.
Mixed Cut Rainbows
Featuring a combination of emerald, ruby, sapphire, Tanzanite, and citrine stones in assorted cuts, this gorgeous ring is bright, colourful, and dramatic without being completely over the top. The smaller size of the stones and the bevel setting help to tone down the ring, allowing the colours to shine with radiance.
