The two of you met in the most unusual circumstances. Logically, you two are polar opposites. But logic and love have nothing to do with each other. Your love has its own story, and it only makes sense that the engagement ring you pick out should be as unique as your relationship.
The traditional diamond engagement ring is still as popular as ever, but there’s an ever-growing trend in finding an engagement ring that doesn’t fit the traditional mold. Prince William’s choice of using his mother’s sapphire as the engagement ring for Kate got people looking at different options. The good news is, you don’t have to be royalty to make it special. Here are some considerations:
1. Start Early.
If you’re going for something custom, starting the process early will ensure it’s ready to put on her finger.
2. Budget Matters.
Choosing to go the non-traditional route means you can get a big impact for a small amount of money.
Not all rings and stones are going to be as durable as the traditional diamond. Make sure it compliments your active lifestyle.
4. Endless Choices
You can put your own unique stamp on it in a number of different ways. Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking:
- Choose a colored diamond, instead of traditional white.
- Choose a gemstone just like Prince William did.
- Choose multiple metals to add character to an otherwise ordinary ring.
- Choose a vintage ring for a bit of unexpected elegance.
- Choose a completely custom ring and you’ll be giving her a ring that nobody else has.
