Getting engaged is an exciting time and you may be so excited that you want to be involved in every aspect. Perhaps you want to find the ring before your partner proposes. Or, maybe your partner has already proposed but didn’t want to get a ring without you seeing it first. We women can be so choosy. If you’re someone who likes to stand out from the crowd, your ring will have to be a unique one. So, how do you find a unique ring in a sea of mundane and boring?

Go Vintage 
It means you’ll have to wear a ring that someone else has worn before but there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, many rings come attached to beautiful love stories. Older women sometimes auction off their wedding and engagement rings because they want someone else to have just as much pleasure out of it as they did. Going vintage means you’re likely to find a fantastic, classic ring that will never go out of style. And, it could be something you don’t see a lot of today.

Local Boutiques 
Just because it’s a local boutique, it doesn’t mean you won’t find something beautiful and original. In fact, many boutiques take original pieces from local artists. So, you may find someone who creates unique diamond jewellery hiding just a few miles from where you live. Even if you don’t find something in the store, you could be introduced to a local independent designer who could create something bespoke for you. It’s always worth checking out!

Forget About Diamonds 
If you’re someone who doesn’t like to be the same as everyone else, your best bet is to steer clear of diamonds. The diamond industry claimed proposals for themselves a long time ago and now it’s considered the norm. If you don’t like the idea of buying into the diamond industry or have problems with how diamonds are often acquired, go for another material. Why not go for an opal or sapphire ring instead?

Custom Made 
The only real way to make sure you get a truly unique ring is to have it custom made. The only problem then is the amount of choice you have before you. If your partner is any good at design, get him/her involved. It can be a great thing for couples to do together. For example, your partner could design the ring, while you choose the stones. Blue and pink diamonds, like those talked about at 77 Diamonds, are becoming ever more popular and they’re a perfect choice for a unique ring.

Remember that an engagement ring is something most people wear for the majority of their lives, so it’s important to choose something you really like. However, it is meant to be a token of love from your partner, so don’t forget to include him/her in the decision making process too – you won’t regret it!
