Getting engaged usually kicks off one of the most exciting journeys in a person’s life. While many couples go for the classic diamond for their engagement ring, there are those who want to create or find an engagement ring that’s as unique as their relationship. Finding that one-of-a-kind ring, however, can be a challenge. Some questions might start to float around in your head that can make the decision-making process a little harder. What if you end up with something too unique? What if your partner doesn’t like it?

Below, we have 5 tips that can help you and your loved one find a one-of-a-kind engagement ring that you’ll be happy to call yours.

1. Get a ring that’s custom-made

One of the best (and easiest) ways to ensure your ring is the only one of its kind is to have it custom-designed or made by a jeweler. Doing this lets you have control over the type of stone, shape, color, metal band, and setting of the ring, providing you with endless possibilities to add that personal touch you’ve always wanted.

Ordering a custom-designed sapphire engagement ring lets you put together all the ideas and inspiration you get from looking at other rings, so it’s important to do your research beforehand.

2. Choose a vintage style

Going for a vintage ring is another way to guarantee that your ring stands out. Since mass production didn’t exist back in the day, at least not on the scale we have now, the engagement rings from decades ago mostly feature details that are complex and handmade.

You also have the option of modifying a vintage or antique ring that you already purchased or own (such as one that’s been passed down) to create your own unique twist of history.

3. Make a personal engraving

A personal engraving on the inside or outside of your ring is a timeless design feature that can make any ring special.

While most people go for their partner’s full name, initials, or the wedding date, consider stepping things up a notch by engraving the lyrics of your favorite song, or even a fingerprint. Since everyone has a different fingerprint, having this engraved on your engagement ring adds that personal touch (literally).

4. Choose a unique metal and setting

Traditional options for the ring metal include yellow gold, white gold, platinum, or silver. Since you’re aiming for something unique, you can pick any metal you like. Of course, you may want to do your research on the pros and cons of each type of metal. For example, some can be softer, making them easier to scratch or dent.

The setting is also another important consideration. Fortunately, there are plenty of unique ideas that you can draw inspiration from so you aren’t limited to traditional ones.

5. Look for limited edition ring styles

One problem with wanting to have something unique in that you often end up with too many options or ideas on your mind.

Visiting local jewelry boutiques may make things easier. If you’re lucky, you may even come across limited edition ring styles that are completely unique and are the only ones made.

Online independent retailers may also have a good selection of unique rings. In most cases, the rings on display are the only ones available. However, it doesn’t hurt to contact the seller to find out if they have something special that isn’t listed on their product pages.

A unique engagement ring can make the wearer feel even more special

Taking your time picking out the right engagement ring can help you evaluate your choices and determine if perhaps a custom-made one is best. In the end, what’s important is that the ring reflects the uniqueness of your partner and captures just how special your relationship is.
