Finding the Right Unique Wedding Ring

 

Tips:

When we use the word “unique” to describe diamond engagement and wedding rings, we’re not suggesting you have to go completely over the top. There are an array of ring styles that are unusual and advertise your creative flair. Look for bands with intrinsic beauty that are just a shade different from the standard solitaire. Look for interesting stones that flank the center diamond. Think about vintage-inspired rings with ornate halos or alternatively, ultra-modern rings with sleek lines.

 

 

How to Choose a Unique Wedding Ring

 

Cost:

Fine design and quality can be found within a wide price range. Naturally, your metal choice will affect the cost, with gold being less expensive metal for a ring setting than platinum, for example. Stones will affect the price as well. If a ring is made by a “name brand” designer, that can also affect the price. Set your price range, and then tweak these categories accordingly to stay within budget.

 

 

Color:

Modern-day metals for women’s diamond wedding rings continue to fall into three traditional categories of white, rose and yellow. By white, we are describing the silvery finish of white gold and platinum. By rose, we refer to the addition of copper to gold that results in the pinkest metal called rose gold. And by yellow, we refer to pure yellow gold. Choose what you think blends best with the rest of your jewelry “wardrobe” for the most harmonious look.

 

 

Style:

As mentioned, designers are now drawing from a wide gamut of design techniques and motifs to create unique diamond engagement and wedding rings. Forget “the rules” about wedding band styles; anything goes in this fun fashion era. It just has to speak to your tastes, and it should be a beloved keepsake you envision wearing for all time. Whether that means vintage, classic, Bohemian, rocker or something else is totally up to you and your hubby.

  

 

Material & Other Features:

Beyond precious metals, gemstones can be the special ingredient to create a ring that stands out. This might mean emeralds and rubies or other colored gemstones. Additionally, an increasingly popular gemstone choice is black diamonds. The cut of the gemstones also goes a long way in creating uniqueness in a ring.

Bamboo was among the many lush textures seen during 1920s world travel that was transformed into Hollywood Regency motifs. We love the vintage quality of this ring; it channels timeless style.
