How Can You Choose An Engagement Ring That’s Both Timeless and Unique?

We totally get it: you’ve chosen to have a unique engagement ring because you want something that stands out and shows off your distinct style! We LOVE that!

But you’re also probably wondering: is it possible to have a super unique ring that’s also timeless? Yes, yes, and more yes! So many unique engagement rings borrow in style from previous decades (think sunburst style art deco style rings that have a 1920’s vibe!). Or they have classic cuts but choose unique stones or materials.

Typically, there’s some element in a unique engagement ring that borrows from something timeless, while also forging its own incredible style! That’s the beauty of these types of engagement rings: they’ll stand the test of time and look absolutely amazing and uniquely different at the same time!

We recommend choosing one specific element of your engagement ring to be the unique, standout portion of the band. Whether it’s a distinct gemstone center or an unexpected cut, allow one part of the ring to be that “wow factor.”

Then, for the rest of the ring, opt for classic and timeless elements, like a minimalist gold band or a classic emerald cut on an emerald engagement ring.

Unique Bezel Set Engagement Rings

Bezel set engagement rings definitely have a unique vibe to them. Most rings use prongs to hold the center stone in place, but with a bezel set, metal literally wraps all the way around the edges of the stone, holding it in place.

We totally love that this type of setting portrays strength and stability. It can be a representation of your unique relationship and how strong it is, or it can represent your epically strong personality. Either way, we love unique bezel set engagement rings.
