When picking an engagement ring, you have to get out of the typical mindset of what you think an engagement ring should look like.

Here are a few other options out there so that you know all that there is to offer.

9 Not-So-Traditional Engagement Ring Options

  1. Fancy diamonds: Who says you have to stick with a plain diamond? You may want to consider something a little more colorful, such as pink, yellow, blue, black, chocolate, champagne or green diamonds.
  2. Alternative gemstones: You really don’t even need to have a diamond in your engagement ring. Some women are opting for different gemstones to be featured in their rings, such as pearls, coral, aquamarines, emeralds, sapphires and rubies. Any of these options will make your ring truly unique.
  3. Intricate settings: Sure, you could go with the typical solitaire setting for an engagement ring, but a more luxurious option would be three-stone, pave, or tension settings. Think out of the box!
  4. Estate rings: Estate and antique rings are gorgeous while also being sentimental. This jewelry is beautiful and connects you to the past, giving it more meaning.
  5. Industrial metals: Stainless steel, tungsten and titanium are becoming more and more popular among brides and grooms because of their durability and sleekness.
  6. No stone:  Some brides are deciding to ditch the gemstone and choosing a band that is more intricate and interesting.
  7. Rose gold: White gold, yellow gold, platinum and sterling silver rings are great, but don’t you want to stand out? Rose gold is very beautiful and has the same amount of pure gold as white gold and yellow gold of the same karat.
  8. Delightful shapes: Show off your playful side with diamond shapes that aren’t as typical as round or square, but more feminine like flowers, hearts or stars.
  9. Just a band: A plain band is just as meaningful as an intricate one. You don’t need to have anything elaborate if you don’t want to.
