20 Alternative Engagement Ring Styles for the Modern Couple

One of the most romantic aspects of every love story is the deep, unique bond between two individuals. Engagement rings are a beautiful way to symbolize the one-of-a-kind love you share with your partner. When picking out a ring that reflects your authentic self, it’s important to remember that you’re not bound to any specific or traditional style. Keep scrolling to discover some of our favorite alternative engagement ring styles.

Non-Traditional Diamond Engagement Rings

A modern way to incorporate classic elements, non-traditional diamond rings are an excellent option for everyday wearability. The Mohs Hardness Scale measures the durability of gemstones on a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being the hardest and most durable, which is where diamonds rank. That’s not to say it’s the only gemstone suitable for everyday wear, however.

Colored Gemstone Engagement Rings

One of the most iconic engagement rings that fall out of tradition is the blue sapphire engagement ring initially worn by Princess Diana. Colored gemstones are a fun way to incorporate your unique personality and style into your engagement ring. If you’re considering a gemstone engagement ring, gemstones that measure a 7 or above on the Mohs Hardness Scale are generally suitable for everyday wear.

Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

An excellent way to incorporate your love for unique architecture and unconventional flair is through the shape of the ring.

Engagement Bands

Engagement bands are a sleek, modern option if center stones aren’t your style. They’re also slightly more versatile when it comes to styling and are generally easier to stack.
