Guide to Unique Engagement Rings

Top Unique Diamond Engagement Ring Settings

This variety of looks stand apart and stand the test of time.

1.The Duet Engagement Ring

The Duet engagement ring has a silhouette unlike any other. Two twisting bands come together to form this alluring, vintage-inspired setting. What truly makes this style stand out is its pavé options. Based on your preference, you can have plain or pavé bands or a combination of both for a truly personalized style.

2.The Hover Engagement Ring

The Hover engagement ring was designed to spark joy by creating an optical illusion. The setting makes your VRAI created diamond appear to float — or hover — over the finger on its own. The clean lines of the band paired with the floating diamond results in a look that is contemporary yet timeless.

3.The Signature V Engagement Ring

The Signature V’s plunging band is not for the faint of heart; this setting is all about dramatic style. Perhaps the most unique Signature V looks are created when pairing with a wedding ring. Whether pairing pavé and plain bands together, varying metal colors, or combining different silhouettes, mixing and matching with the Signature V is sure to turn heads.

4.The Hidden Halo Engagement Ring

The Hidden Halo engagement ring is a non-traditional spin on a vintage-inspired, classic Halo engagement ring. Instead of a “halo” of diamonds appearing around the top of a diamond engagement ring, this setting hides it beneath. The ring of pavé set diamonds are secured within a prong setting, adding an extra layer of unexpected shine that is best seen from the side. This design is what gives the ring its intriguing “hidden” luminary effect. Select a pavé band and prong setting for even more surprising brilliance.

5.Unique Three Stone Engagement Rings

Three Stone engagement rings allow you to mix and match center and side stones for a look that is uniquely you. Consider pairing a more traditional diamond shape, such as Round Brilliant or Emerald shaped diamonds, with daring Trillion side stones. Or feature a more modern cut, such as Princess or Radiant shaped diamonds, with tapered baguette side stones for a look that is clean and linear.

6.Unique Bezel Engagement Rings

Bezel engagement rings are timeless and often vintage-inspired. But a few added details can make your Bezel ring stand out from traditional designs. Consider selecting a pavé band that will contrast with the metal bezel setting for a look that both shines and shimmers. Or select an East-West Bezel for a literal twist on this well-loved setting.

Unique Diamond Engagement Ring Shapes

While many diamond shapes came into existence centuries ago, certain cuts and shapes are relatively new and therefore less traditional. Princess, Radiant, and Trillion shaped diamonds all began to appear in engagement rings in the 1960s and 1970s.

These striking cuts continue to grow in popularity as all feature strong, linear edges that result in a thoroughly modern look. Although these shapes grow in demand, they still appeal to those who veer away from traditional Round Brilliant or Emerald shaped diamonds. Consider choosing a Princess, Radiant, or Trillion shaped diamond for tradition-breaking style.
