Summer is drawing to a close which means wedding season is finally coming to an end. While the big days may be sparse until next May, expect to see a lot more engagement announcements on your feeds over the next few weeks. Engagement season is here, where couples are finally popping the question and getting planning for next year’s nuptials.

If you’re looking to pop the question to your significant other, or have just been dropping hints left, right and centre, you’ll definitely have been thinking about the ring. Engagement rings are as personal to a couple as the relationship itself, and choosing the right one that will (hopefully!) stay on your hand for life is a tough job. While classic designs and single diamonds will always be fashionable, an alternative style of engagement ring will turn heads, show off your personal style and be a constant reminder of how well your significant other knows you. Here, we collect our 13 favourite unusual engagement rings, from vintage to modern, gemstones to diamonds, for you and your partner to choose from.
