When it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring, you’ll have a few options when it comes to diamond, cut, style, colour and specific design. But as common gems are a dime a dozen nowadays, selecting a truly unique engagement ring may be the perfect way to win your soon-to-be fiancee’s heart.

But as with the typical engagement ring selection process, picking the perfect unique engagement ring for you is no easy feat. So, we’re here to break down the process and making finding your ideal unique engagement ring as easy as possible. Read on to learn more about unique engagement ring features, the potential for ring customisation, and options when it comes to choosing a unique, bespoke design for your dream engagement ring.

What makes an engagement ring unique?

If you’re interested in purchasing a unique engagement ring, there are a few different types of unique to choose from. Two of the most common avenues to explore are slight variations on classic designs, or completely original designs.

Opting for a variation is a fantastic option for those who admire timeless, vintage pieces, whereas sourcing a completely original design is perfect for those who are truly one-of-a-kind and want to own a piece of jewellery that nobody else in the world does.

Why should I choose a unique engagement ring?

Once you’ve decided whether you’d rather a variation or completely original design, a good place to start is by choosing your gemstone. Diamonds are incredibly popular within engagement ring designs, and can come in a wide range of colours to help differentiate your ring from others on the market. Otherwise, gemstones like sapphires, emeralds or rubies also make for beautiful, unique engagement ring settings.

Once you’ve picked a gemstone to feature, move to other aspects of the ring including metal (and if necessary, combining different types of metals), shape and other colours. Experimenting with these different options could allow for twisted bands, mixing gemstones, intricate feature details or even imperfections that indicate the ring has been individually handcrafted.

How do I pick a unique design for an engagement ring?

A good first step in choosing your perfect unique engagement ring is doing your research. Scour online or hard copy catalogues, talk to friends with unique ring designs, and experiment with online tools that allow you to customise and tweak jewellery until you decide upon your dream design.

If you require a little more assistance, consider consulting a professional jeweller for their opinion, advice and insights. They’ll be able to show you physical examples of unique engagement rings, options for gemstone settings and intricate designs, and can even sketch you their own unique design based on your desired ring features.
