Top 5 Unique Engagement Rings for Women

Classic, traditional, timeless … these words come to mind when thinking of engagement rings. In 2023, that is not always the case. With millennials and younger generations settling down and getting engaged, more couples are shifting away from classic engagement ring styles toward non-traditional engagement rings. Modern engagement rings may feature colored gemstones, mixed metals, or fancy diamond shapes. Also trending is a custom-designed engagement ring to truly personalize that special piece. To help you find a ring as unique as she is, King Jewelers’ team of bridal experts has formed a list of the most unique engagement ring styles.

1. Toi et Moi “You and Me” Engagement Rings

Not just for celebrities – this style meaning ‘you and me’ was first seen when Napoleon proposed to Josephine in the late 1700s. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis sported an emerald and diamond version long before celebrities like Megan Fox, Ariana Grande, and Emily Ratajkowski. Large mixed stone shapes on rings have experienced a spike in popularity in 2023. Beautiful, fresh, and not your traditional solitaire, this style can easily be made into a one-of-a-kind engagement ring as unique as the love you share.

2. East West Engagement Rings

If you are looking to make your engagement ring more unique while not straying too far from the traditional route, setting the stone in an east to west ring is the perfect style for you. While classic rings typically sit vertically on the band (north to south), east to west flips the stone to a horizontal setting, keeping it classic but with a fresh look. This unique bezel set engagement ring mounting is designed to hold an east west emerald cut diamond center stone accented by two princess-cut diamond sidetones. The East West engagement ring setting also looks wonderful on oval, pear shape, and marquise diamonds.

3. Marquise Halo Engagement Rings

Halos are a great way to add diamonds to your ring, make a diamond center stone look even larger, or add a unique touch. The term halo refers to the center stone being surrounded by smaller diamonds. The more classic halo style is made up of matching stones surrounding one large center stone. However, more and more unique halo engagement rings are popping up in 2023. These unusual engagement rings can feature mixed diamond shapes or multicolor gemstones. Featuring separated and individually pronged diamonds, this yellow-gold halo setting offers a special and unique petal or sunburst look. Unique halo engagement rings can create a floating effect and a ring that is just as special as you are.

4. Mixed Metals and Colorful Stones

More trends we are seeing are mixed metal and colored gemstone engagement rings. Once a ‘faux pa’ mixing different metals is now popular and can personalize any ring. Colored gemstone center stones, which often have a special meaning, add a unique style to the engagement ring. This cool engagement ring from Little Bird Bridal features a blue topaz center stone. Blue topaz represents health, love, loyalty, and protection making it a fitting choice for your partner to wear forever. The halo and diamond band add an extra touch of elegance making this the perfect unique engagement ring for her.

5. Bezel Set Diamond Engagement Rings

Engagement rings do not have to have a complex design to stand out from the crowd. Bezel set diamond rings are an example of a simple and unique engagement ring style. Instead of the center stone being secured by prongs, a bezel set engagement ring setting secures the center stone with an extra layer of metal framing. It is the perfect choice for someone who is active and hopes to wear their engagement ring daily. A bezel set ring holds the diamond better than any other setting, including the traditional prong setting, and won’t get caught on anything. This beautiful bezel set engagement ring setting is designed to hold an East West solitaire diamond center stone in 18K yellow gold. Simple and sophisticated this unique gold engagement ring evokes a modern or contemporary feel.
