Find the Ring that Stands Out 

Weddings have a lot of traditions, like a beautiful white wedding dress or a diamond engagement ring. We adore them because they are timeless, and many brides still yearn for a classic ceremony. 

It's a chance to flaunt your individuality and sense of style. And so, use vivid hues, visit various locations, and experiment with various fashions, keep it straightforward or take a risk. We hope you'll look around and find an engagement ring that's as special as you are. 


Colored Gemstones 

Sapphires, emeralds, amethysts, and topaz are just a few of the many gemstones available. Gemstone's alternative engagement rings have an air of sophistication. They're popular with the royal family and can be a meaningful way to incorporate design if you pick a stone or hue with personal significance. 

Shades from Dark to Light 

What’s your shade? Do you prefer a rich dark color scheme or one with lighter and airiness? A gemstone's saturation and color value can completely transform the feel of a one-of-a-kind engagement ring. Darker gemstone rings have an inherent richness of color that draws in the eye. A striking black diamond engagement ring is perfect for channeling black-tie elegance, while deep red or blue gemstones like ruby, rhodolite, and sapphire are perfect for achieving a moodier aesthetic. 

Using pastel-hued colored stones is an innovative way to express love in the modern era. If you're looking for a unique engagement ring, consider one made of rose gold, which pairs beautifully with transparent stones like amethyst and lustrous gems like opal and pearl. Whether you prefer bolder colors or softer shades, colored gemstones are a great way to fit your uniquely designed engagement ring to your personality. 

Unexpected Cuts and Shapes 

If you're looking for a ring that will get more attention than a simple prong setting with a round diamond, then you should think about using a non-traditional shank shape or a non-traditional cut for the center stone. Traditional engagement rings tend to be round, so you might want to break that shape with shanks that are more organic and winding and have accent gemstones placed naturally. Your engagement ring's gemstone setting doesn't have to feature a single focal stone. Think about alternate designs that spread light around the ring. 

The shape of your gemstone can also make your engagement ring look one-of-a-kind. The most common diamond shapes are round, oval, emerald, and cushion. Frames that create the impression of unusual shapes, such as sharp triangles or a hexagon, are a fun way to shake things up geometrically. You can even go retro with a pear or baguette cut, two of the more well-liked options for those who prefer a more traditional look. To achieve a fresh, one-of-a-kind look, try putting together unusual shapes or contrasting gemstone cuts. 


Mix and Match Metals 

Traditional metals for engagement rings include gold and platinum because of the impact they have on the overall aesthetic. Consider unconventional metals, such as dazzling black sterling silver, for an engagement ring with a unique look. Metals within the same design can even be combined. An engagement ring with white, yellow, and rose gold interwoven in its design. Mixed metals are also popular in men’s wedding band designs, so mixing metals is a special way to coordinate your engagement and wedding rings. 

Settings and Styles 

The style of a ring can be altered to reflect the wearer's personal style by rearranging the stones and selecting a new setting. Get away from the expected with off-center settings. An asymmetric design, such as one in which the gemstone focal point is positioned off-center, has a more modern and distinctive feel. 

Custom Rings 

Now that we've covered everything that goes into a unique engagement ring, let's get down to business. However, to be sure your ring is perfect, it's best to design it yourself. Here at Modern Gem Jewelry, we offer a number of options for creating a one-of-a-kind, custom engagement ring. It’s your ring, so you deserve to make it one-of-a-kind.
