10 unique engagement rings for those who want something different

by Jennifer McShane
05th Dec 2020

Did you get engaged this year?

When it comes to engagement rings, not everyone goes the strictly traditional route. One of my best friends recently got engaged and she chose her ring for sentiment and because it was a ring perfectly suited to her personality – it was simple and beautiful and didn’t cost the earth (which always helps!). The most eye-catching rings won’t either. Because the fact that it’s expensive (or not) shouldn’t be a deal-breaker when making your choice.

It always comes down to personal taste and preference, but while you’re deciding, why not consider a coloured stone, something in rose gold, or a ring that’s been handmade?

We’ve picked out 10 alternative engagement gems for the bride who wants something different in the ring department.
