When you hear someone say diamond engagement ring, a picture probably pops into your head of something traditional. Perhaps white gold or platinum, a Cushion or Round Cut diamond, and maybe a surrounding halo of stones. But it’s time to branch out and rewrite tradition! We have four unique diamond engagement rings that we think are perfect for the task.
This beauty probably isn’t what comes to mind when you envision a diamond ring, but it definitely fits the bill. Herringbone perfectly combines gold, silver, and plenty of diamonds. The main draw of this ring is the center Old Mine Cushion Brilliant Cut diamond which weighs over 1.5 carats and really stands out thanks to the gold detailing surrounding it.
Herringbone certainly has the diamond aspect of a diamond ring down, with a Round Cut diamond on both sides of the center stone. And there’s still more! Attaching the Old Mine Cut and Round Cut diamonds to the 14K, silver-topped gold band are four petals, each with a rose cut diamond inside.
Fitting perfectly in the category of unique diamond engagement rings, Herringbone comes from the Art Nouveau period, around 1905. Originally believed to have been part of a necklace, Herringbone was turned into a ring in the 1930s, and we think it was a great decision.
Diamonds, diamonds, and diamonds. Did we mention diamonds? Burnt Oak shines bright and is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The two Old European Cut diamonds pull your attention in and are further complemented by the decorative milgrained edges that surround them. What could be better than two beautiful diamonds that each weigh .40 carats? Having 13 single cut diamonds in the same ring is pretty close.
Like Herringbone, Burnt Oak is also one of our unique diamond engagement rings from the early 1900s, coming from the Edwardian era. The elegance conveyed in the main part of the ring is transferred into the band. Diamonds flow from the center to the 18K gold band, pulling the whole look together and making this one of our favorite diamond rings.
The main stone in Scotland is a stunner, coming in at over one carat. The ring features clean lines and is draped in diamonds. There are two rows of additional stones, each with six diamonds.
Like many new rings popular today, platinum is the main metal in Scotland, which is from the Modern era. Because of this and the multi-row feature, this piece offers a great bridge between 21st century traditional rings and other unique diamond engagement rings, like those included in this post.
This vintage-inspired ring is modeled after a long-time favorite among Trumpet & Horn customers. Like Scotland, the primary metal in White Oak is platinum and the Emerald Cut diamond comes in at just over 1.5 carats, set east-west in the ring. If the main stone isn’t enough for you, the band also features 14 single cut diamonds, which have hand engraving throughout the shank and basket.
Choosing Your Own Unique Classic
A diamond ring has always been a classic choice, and it is what most people envision when they think of an engagement ring. The best part about diamonds, aside from their beauty, is that they lend themselves well to a variety of styles, which is why Trumpet & Horn is able to offer many unique diamond engagement rings. It is time for you to find your perfect match.
