The rings on this thread are AMAZING!!! I love unique rings and dresses – my jaw just keeps dropping at these pics! Here’s mine; it was DH’s great-grandmother’s ring. We had the darnedest time trying to find a band that would go well with it.

I do like it, but not enough to get it when I know he hates it. Our compromise is two bands for me: the cool gold one that matches his and a plain platinum one to wear with the engagement ring.

I wasn’t going to post in this thread at first because I think my ring is more unusual than unique – but I just now managed to upload a nicer picture of my ring to Wbee so in celebration of that I’m going to show her off! 😀 I have a round centre with pear sides and a tapering band <3

Well, we wanted a GIA diamond with its number inscribed on the girdle for that extra layer of security, Color F or better, and a “good F” at least (F is a range), no fluorescence, clarity VS1 or better…and specific types of VS1 and not others (e.g. No feathers, no clouds, nothing near the girdle etc.), triple ex cut, HCA less than 2, a bright and lively stone with no “dead spots” when we rock the stone around and look at lightplay, well-formed arrows and hearts under the scope (but not the premium of paying for the H&A brand), thin-med girdle, and tiny or no culet. We also had a certain size range which we were looking in that looked best on my finger and considering his design, which, while nothing huge, still limits things when you have a narrow size range too, esp. when it doesn’t happen to be anything super-popular like around exactly a carat. And
we wanted a good price too, diamonds are freaking expensive! lol!

I love my ring. I hate most jewelry because I find it too flashy for me. I’m a jeans and birks kinda gal and didn’t want to worry about ramming my hand into my pockets or wearing gloves or if a prong is loose or anything of the like. I looked for a long time, trying to find a ring ANYWHERE that I liked, and finally found one that I loved on first sight at etsy.
I think it’s unique because:
a) it puts a traditional phrase common to many Jewish rings into the handwritten script instead of the printed script that I’ve seen anywhere; it looks slightly more girly to me this way
b) it purposely has no major stone of any kind, and the three sapphires are set flush in the band
c) it will serve as my only ring; it is e-ring and wedding band in one.
d) the white appearance of the matte silver and the blue stones mimic the flag of my fiance’s country of birth, Israel
e) I’ve gone through tons of posts on wedding-related forums and blogs and haven’t seen anyone with anything remotely close to mine.

That ring is effing amazing. I want it.
I think mine is unique because… Well, it just is. Not many people have a pink amethyst ring. And its quantum/concave emerald cut, which isnt common.

Mine’s unique because it’s a mokume gane ring. I’m half Japanese, half Irish, so it’s got the Japanese metalwork, but still the traditional diamond. No pic of it officially on my hand yet, but I’ll get one eventually 🙂

Holy crap, I got a ring boner from that ring! LOVE!!
My ring’s unique because my Fiance designed it himself (after many-a-link of photos was sent to him…) and it’s my great-aunt’s center diamond. She lived close to the plot on which I live; I am a 4th generation resident of my west Side neighborhood.
Also, it’s super duper tiny but my jeweler, who is one of my high schooler’s dad;s, made it.
Also, one stone is set wrong. Does that make it unique?

I think mine is unique because it is custom made. Although I’ve seen a ring with similar features, and a halo isn’t exactly unique, the size of the stones that make up my ring make it very nontraditional looking. I used stones that belonged to my husband’s grandmother, and usually stones that are .10 are not put into a halo. A lot of people don’t even recognize my ring to be a halo.

Lmao! That seriously made me snort out loud. Your ring is also gorgeous! I love that your Fiance designed it.
