Unusual Engagement Rings


For those looking for something truly unique

Most engagement rings are variations of certain classic themes: solitaire, trilogy, vintage, art deco and so on. Whatever style you feel works best, there is no reason that it can't be adapted to create a unique design that reflects your personality, your history, and your sense of style. The inspiration can come from anywhere - from fine art, from your wardrobe, from your experiences of work and travel - the possibilities are almost endless. To help illustrate this point, here are a couple of examples of unique engagement rings that we've been commissioned to create.

You can browse some of the more unusual engagement rings that previous clients have commissioned. If you feel inspired by an idea for a unique ring of your own, please feel free to get in touch - we'd love to help turn your ideas into reality.

    Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

    Starry Night

    Art inspired ring


    One client told us that his girlfriend’s favourite picture is ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent Van Gogh, and that this should be the inspiration for her engagement ring. It was an intriguing idea, but it would require a bit of work to translate this raw concept into a design.

    Sketching

    The first step was for us to pencil sketch a couple of possibilities to show the client, and fortunately we were able to come back to him quickly with a configuration that he liked.

    COMBINING INDIAN & CELTIC

    Heritage inspired ring

    Sometimes the inspiration for an unusual ring might be more abstract than a specific painting. We were contacted by a newly-engaged couple who wanted to incorporate their families’ cultural traditions into their ring - she was from Scotland and wanted it to feature a Celtic motif, while he wanted to use a Paisley design popular in India, where his family originated. They knew that rather than a traditional delicate band, they wanted a broader, more contemporary shape for their ring.

    Pattern sketches

    Our first task was to sketch a few options for the shank of their ring, incorporating the two motifs they had in mind.

    3D modelling

    Once we've developed a pattern that met their approval, we went on to model the ring in CAD, shown on right. It was important to ensure that these motifs were slim enough to be delicate, but solid enough to provide structural integrity.

    Setting the diamonds

    Once the CAD was signed off, we went on to make the ring.  On the right you can see our setter has marked out hoe he intends to set the small diamonds. He has applied a milgrain edge but has yet to set the central diamond.
