THE BASICS --
Every bride-to-be dreams of an engagement ring that will not only represent a romantic promise and commitment to her beloved, but will also reflect her personal flair and individual preferences. But how can you choose a unique engagement ring that will fit your style? Fortunately, there are many outstanding options for personalizing this very personal piece of jewelry.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW--
Why a Unique Engagement Ring Matters
Every relationship is different and every couple has their own special history, moments, and memories. While any engagement ring becomes a part of that singular story, a unique engagement ring has even more symbolism and meaning for the couple. A distinctive ring can incorporate a couple’s personal style,
special dates, intimate secrets, fun nicknames, special moments, and more.
How an Engagement Ring Can Be Unique
There are many ways to add uniqueness to any engagement ring. Some couples may opt for just one unique focal point or accent, while others may prefer a blend of styles for a truly distinctive and one-of- a-kind piece. Popular choices to add uniqueness to an engagement ring include:
Using colored gemstones instead of diamonds
Choosing an unusual or unexpected setting
• Stone Shape
Opting for a unique stone shape or extreme proportions
Incorporating metalwork details into the ring
Engraving a special message inside the ring
• Stackable Rings
Choosing a unique ring style, such as stackable rings
While each option may not appeal to each couple, there are enough unusual options available that any couple can choose a truly unique engagement ring they will love.
Choosing a Unique Engagement Ring for Your Style
Choosing an engagement ring, whether it is a classic, traditional style or a more unique variation, is a momentous decision for any couple. When choosing a unique ring, great thought must be given to the choice to ensure a perfect ring to match that perfectly special someone. To carefully consider different unusual styles and whether they will be a great choice…
• Keep an Open Mind
Always consider a range of styles and options, as you may not know which ones would suit you best. Trying different engagement rings can help you narrow down what features you want to keep traditional and which ones you prefer to be creative with.
• Try Different Ring Eras
Every jewelry era has distinctive highlights and features that set engagement rings apart. Consider different antique and vintage rings from a broad range of eras to see unique styles and appreciate their history and variations.
• Match the Ring to the Finger
Carefully consider the features of the finger that will wear this very important ring. A slender, tapered, long finger will look better with different styles than a shorter, thicker finger or a finger with prominent knuckles.
• Consider Skin Tone
Skin tone on the hand can be an important factor for how beautiful an engagement ring may look. Choose metal colors, diamond color, and gemstone shades to complement skin tone for the best appearance for both the hand and the ring.
• Be Mindful of Activities
When choosing any engagement ring, consider the activities of the wearer. Baking, crafts, sports, gardening? Medical practices, automotive work? Choose a ring that can be worn frequently without being at risk from damage or loss with daily activities.
• Check Unusual Places
Some of the most unique rings are found in unusual places. Scout estate sales, auctions, pawn shops, and consignment stores for more diverse rings, but be sure that each ring is professionally authenticated.
• Consult a Jeweler
Work with an experienced jeweler for the best selection of rings and the proper authentication of a ring to ensure its value and quality. Jewelers can also help guide you to more unique rings you may never have originally considered.
• Integrate Passion
To make a ring truly unique, incorporate the hobbies, favorite colors, significant dates, or other passions of the wearer into the design. A nature-lover might love a ring with a floral or vine motif, for example, or a movie-lover might love a movie- or celebrity- inspired design.
Never be afraid to customize an engagement ring for even more uniqueness. Swap out stones, for example, to add a preferred bit of bling, or make other adjustments that will give the ring more personality to match the bride-to-be’s individual style.
Choosing a Unique Engagement Ring
Choosing an engagement ring is a monumental decision, as this is one ring that will hopefully be worn for many years. Take time and care with the decision, and you will be able to choose a unique ring to suit your unique style and still reflect the love and distinction of your relationship.
