Ahhhh! I love this thread! I’m a huge fan of rings that are a little bit outside the ‘norm’, and the rings I’m seeing here are gorgeous! Getting my ring sometime in the next month, and it’s a little on the unique side (hopefully unique enough for this thread!), so I’ll be sure to drop it here when I have a pic ๐Ÿ˜‰

My 9×9 lab sapphire ๐Ÿ™‚ I too decided not to buy in to the “diamonds are the only way to go” philosophy, especially after seeing the episode of “Adam Ruins Everything” on why diamonds are so popular. I’ve always liked my birthstone and the famous Diana/Kate ring, so going with a sapphire was easy!

I feel like my ring is fairly unique, it definately doesn’t have a common setting. My Fiance and I are both very nature oriented people so the leaf design was absolutely perfect for us. The center stone is Moissanite and it is absoltely beautiful and full of sparkle in person!

My setting is pretty unconventional, but I really love it.  This is the Embracing Tree Branch setting from Krikawa in yellow gold with a .5ct equivalent oval moissanite, size 4.5. My partner found a bunch of nature-y e-rings online for me to pick from, and together we decided on this set. I love yellow gold, and I really wanted something with interesting metal work instead of a row of shiny rocks (nothing wrong with your lovely sparkly bands ladies, just not for me!!). It’s so twisty! I love that it looks more organic than a simple braid or knotwork, and there’s a really delicate wedding band that will match!

I have a natural unheated bluey-green sapphire. Sadly I only have photos of it in evening light, but in bright daylight it can look quite icy/light blue and sparkly. It also actually looks super dainty IRL but somehow doesn’t photograph like that up close. (Maybe because my fingers are so bony/scrawny…)

Here is my padparadscha sapphire engagement ring. I wanted colour in my ring so opted for a sapphire as the center stone instead of a diamond.

I don’t think it matters whether you have a standard or different ring. I have only been engaged 5 months and i was in town shopping and had a guy come over to me and ask me out, when I said I was engaged and held my hand up he said ‘dump his arse and I’ll get you a real rock, that shit is tiny’ I have a .75ct pear solitaire… you literally will get comments no matter what you have.

Ive been going back amd forth posting mine…. When i think of unconventional… I think intricate settings, colored stones etc. But ive never seen a bezel on anyone in real life… Especially with such a thick band. And the stone is a silvery grey. So… Apologies if its not a fit with this board.
