Whether you want something a little quirkier than the classic platinum solitaire ring, or you’re on the hunt for a budget-friendly design, there are plenty of gorgeous and unusual engagement rings out there! Here are ten of our favourites…
This beautiful tulip-style ring in 18ct gold features a half carat round ruby in a yellow gold setting. It’s the perfect choice for brides looking for a coloured stone for their engagement ring, but in a timelessly elegant setting.
This is a super-modern, sleek style that’s ideal for a chic bride looking for a minimalist engagement ring. Made with 14ct rose gold, this ring features two baguette diamonds for a total carat weight of 0.2ct.
We’re a big fan of British designer Alex Monroe’s nature-inspired designs, and this engagement ring is a stunning twist on a traditional design. Shown here in 18ct yellow gold, this 0.25ct diamond ring is available in white or rose gold too.
This sweet alternative ring is sentimental AND super affordable! If you could care less about a shiny rock and just want a symbol of your love, how better to show it than with this tying-the-knot ring in silver?
This beautiful rough cut diamond ring is perfect if you like the symbolism and investment of a diamond, but want a more organic or unusual design. The speckled grey rough cut diamond sits between two rough triangular cut diamonds, in a stylish matte 14ct yellow gold band.
Why have one diamond when you could have eight?! This glittering style from EC One is a more modern take on a traditional cluster ring, and we love the elegant slim band. Set in 18ct white gold, the total diamond carat weight of this ring comes in at 0.85ct.
For brides looking for a statement twist on a traditional halo, we recommend Andrew Geohegan’s colourful Cannele collection. This 18ct rose gold beauty features a stunning ruby centre stone, surrounded by a pink sapphire halo.
US designer Anna Sheffield creates some of the most popular alternative engagement rings around, and looking at this elegant design, it’s not hard to see why! This style features a unique grey diamond centre, set in a tapered white diamond pavé band in 14ct gold.
The handcrafted finish to Alexis Dove’s old mine cut diamond rings are what make them so special, and this three stone ring is one of our favourites. It’s completely customisable too, as you can choose your own diamonds from her collection as well as switching up the metal of the setting.
Looking at this sparkling Monica Vinader design, you’d never know that it comes in at under £200! The Ava ring is the perfect choice for brides who want a petite but beautiful piece on a budget.
