Engagement rings are a special purchase, chosen specifically with one person in mind – but with so many popular styles and designs on the market, all of which share lots of similar qualities, how can you make sure your chosen ring is truly unique?
Brilliant round cut solitaire diamonds are the most popular type of engagement ring, and they do make a beautiful choice. However, if you’re looking for something a little quirkier, you could try one of these more unusual options.
Opt for multiple diamonds
Engagement rings traditionally feature a diamond – but other than tradition, there’s no reason to limit yourself to just one! You could opt for a larger stone framed by lots of smaller ones, or a line of similar-sized gems.
Choose different stones
Again, it is the only tradition that dictates you have to choose a diamond at all – other gemstones such as rubies, emeralds, or sapphires can also look lovely. For a particularly personal touch, you could choose your beloved’s birthstone.
Include an engraving
If you want a ring with a more subtly unique touch, you could consider customising your choice with engraving. Popular options include a sentimental quote, a name, or even the date of the engagement itself!
Redesign an heirloom
If you have a family ring that you’d like to use but think it’s in need of a bit of a refresh, you could consider getting it redesigned by a professional jeweller. The jewellers of Hatton Garden have a wealth of experience and would be happy to help – why not pay them a visit and see what they can come up with?
