An engagement ring doesn’t always have to be a solitaire diamond; in fact, there are lots of attractive and distinctly unusual engagement rings for you to select from. By breaking the norm and thinking outside of the box you may be able to find something special and unique to you, which people will comment on not just when you first get engaged, but for years and years to come.
If you only open your mind to other options, you will realize that there are plenty of other ring choices available. The truth is engagement rings can be manufactured from many different gemstones and types of metal settings. There are hundreds of options just waiting to be discovered. To give you some ideas, here are some of the more unconventional ring choices that you might want to consider:
• Gemstones Engagement Rings – Although diamonds are classic pieces, there are still other natural gemstones that will look good on engagement rings. In fact, there is an increasing trend for the use of colored gemstones. Sapphire, ruby, amethyst and aquamarine can be much cheaper stone choices than diamonds. In addition to that, these gemstones signify varying symbols and meanings, which greatly add to their appeal.
• Rare gemstones such as tanzanite, alexandrite and zultanite. Having a ring containing stones that few people have even heard of let alone seen will certainly be a talking point and will make your ring stand out from the other mass produced, jewelry store chain rings.
• Cultural engagement rings – There are lots of cultural rings that have existed and passed down from generation to generation, which can also be used as unique engagement rings. For instance, the Russian catholic trinity rings are fashionable choices. They are sold in varying metal colors and distinct ring styles.
• Fancy diamonds – this is the name given to colored diamonds. Fancy diamond rings are the height of fashion now with many celebrities opting for them as their engagement rings. Katherine McPhee opted for a combination of yellow and pink diamonds; Tracey Edmond’s ring is a stunning canary yellow and Mariah Carey’s is a huge light pink diamond surrounded by smaller deep pink diamonds, over sixty diamonds in all.
When looking for unconventional engagement rings, there are various places where you can shop. The internet alone houses a great collection of attractive, and appealing specialized rings. Take time to have a look at some of the online jewelry stores and jewelry sellers to get an idea of the unusual designs on the market. Gemstone rings can be made from white or yellow gold or magnificent platinum. Rose gold is an attractive and less usual option, although since Tom Cruise bought Katie Holmes a platinum and rose gold ring it has become trendier again.
Opting for unusual engagement rings is a fantastic idea since they have more individuality, and you are setting a ring standard that is unique from the rest.
