Every couple has a unique way to value their relationships. And more often than not, they want to express their uniqueness in every way they can before and during the wedding. Like for example in getting an engagement ring, they want to have a unique one-of-a-kind that will symbolize the special love they have for each other.
The uniqueness of the ring depends on the couple’s point of view. Other couple may find a unique one but for some they’re just an ordinary engagement ring. So it is important to have a wide range of choices before deciding on which unique engagement ring to purchase.
A traditional engagement ring for any couple would be a solitaire diamond ring. To make it extraordinary, you change the style, design, and the stone shape. There are several engagement ring styles to choose from; you can ask your jeweler for numerous styles and designs then select the one you are comfortable with and the one that can make your imagination come true or you can visit many of the online outlets that offer customizations at unbeatable prices such as Primestyle.com.
The metal used in your ring can also vary depending if you want to go with value or durability. It can be yellow gold, white gold or platinum. Platinum gives off more brilliance and shine to your stone but much more expensive than that of gold. And there are also some jewelers offering platinum ring settings that are very unique and stunning.
But if you want a simple solitaire ring in a bezel or in a prong setting, you can always choose a colorful gemstone instead of having a diamond. It can be your favorite color, or your birthstone, or even the stone that symbolizes your anniversary. You can also choose a unique shape other than the common round, princess, or marquise cut; rather pick a more unique cut like pear, oval, or asscher cut.
Semi-precious stones are much cheaper than diamonds but they are equally elegant at brilliant. But even if you opt for a gemstone, don’t forget to check the quality of the stone; just always remember the 4 c’s when you’re purchasing a ring with diamonds or gemstones.
Another choice is to go with a vintage styled engagement ring. They offer exquisite engagement ring styles from different eras; they can be from Victorian, Edwardian, or Art deco period. When you opt for this kind of engagement ring be sure to check for deficiencies as they could have been acquired throughout the years.
Unique engagement rings may be a lot harder to look for but there are a lot of ways to find one. You can visit designer jewelers, an estate sale or you can also browse the internet for online auctions and online specialty jewelry shops which is becoming more popular as time passes.
