The love that two people share is not just as unique as each of them is, but the relationship itself takes on its own unique personality. When planning to marry and spend a lifetime together, the rings chosen to signify that union should be as individual as the relationship. Why spend large amounts of money to have an ordinary gold wedding band or diamond solitaire like everyone else? Take some time to envision and design unique engagement rings to symbolize your life together.
When looking to design a ring for her, begin with the metal. There are many precious metals to choose from, although most choose gold. In addition to gold, tungsten, platinum, and titanium are becoming popular options. Instead of ordinary gold, your ring could be fashioned in two tones, with a blend of metals. For truly unique rings, consider rose or sage gold for the setting for her ring and the band of his.
Diamonds are common, although expensive. Why settle for a diamond when there are precious stones of every color available in a wide variety of cuts. Sapphires in hues of pinks, blues, and greens are wonderful in engagement rings and can be accented with traditional diamonds. These stones can be purchased in much larger sizes for the same price as a single diamond. Figural rings are those that are set in a shape that has meaning for the couple, such as an animal, butterfly, or heart. They can have a very unique meaning to you and make a signature ring that you will be proud to wear forever.
Some people choose unusual engagement rings such as the Celtic patterned bands, both set with stones or without, or a beautiful ornate oriental inspired design. Still others find a one of a kind piece at an antique jewelry shop or use family heirloom jewelry to create a unique symbol of their love. Grandma’s wedding ring could be refurbished or reset to produce a beautiful engagement ring.
There are many jewelers who will create custom rings to fit your personalities. They can show you hundreds of loose stones and ideas for settings to get you started thinking. While choosing the elements for her ring, consider his as well. He will need a wedding ring and most couples desire having one that is similar in style to hers in some way. Finally yet importantly, consider engraving the rings in some way for added meaning. The rings you choose should last your lifetimes together and be something that you will cherish as an enduring symbol of your love.
