Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D hit the headlines at the end of last year by showing off her engagement ring from her musician fiancé Deadmau5. The ring, which was crafted by The Great Frog London jewellery store, featured a dramatic black diamond set between four platinum skulls, fixed to a gemstone studded double band – certainly a twist on a conventional solitaire diamond.
If you’re thinking of popping the question, like Deadmau5 you may be searching for a unique ring that suits your beloved’s personal style. Whilst you may want something a little more traditional than Kat’s gothic-inspired band, there are definitely some ways that you can make your ring stand out from the engagement ring crowd too!
Kat’s ring features not one but two bands, both studded with glittering black stones to match the centrepiece. Consider a double band for your unique engagement ring – whether it’s plain and simple or crammed full of sparkle, it’ll give an extra unusual touch.
Around 80% of engagement rings these days feature a classic white diamond. If you’re looking for a band with a different, why not opt for a coloured stone instead? You could choose a stone in a shade of your partner’s favourite colour, or make it equally personal by using their birthstone instead.
Design your own
If you can’t find what you’re looking for on the shelves of a store, take a leaf out of Deadmau5’s book and ask your preferred jeweller to design something bespoke. There are plenty of jewellers in Hatton Garden that offer personalised jewellery design services – why not pay them a visit and see what you can create?
