10 Truly Stunning Engagement Rings for the Alternative Bride

JewleryDana Schiffman

You’re unique, and finding an engagement ring that’s as unique as you can be hard. Luckily, I’ve compiled a list of 10 alternative engagement rings to get those wheels turning so you can start exploring your options. After all, you’re going to be wearing this ring for the rest of your life… you better like it!

My husband and I got engaged while sitting on the couch talking about the future, so needless to say, he didn’t have a ring. THANKFULLY! He knows me well enough not to surprise me with jewelry, especially a piece as important as this one! One might say, I am a little picky.

I knew he would want to make me happy, and what made me happy was hunting for my own engagement ring.

I wanted something beautiful, simple, sentimental, low profile (because let's face it, I would ruin all of my clothes and probably poke my eye out) AND I wanted one ring to serve as both my engagement ring and my wedding band.

I went to all the typical chain jewelry stores, and none of them really got the idea of an “alternative engagement ring”.  That’s when I started searching the web, and checking out local jewelers (which there is no shortage of in Asheville!).

Eventually I picked this semi custom ring from a local Asheville jeweler, Jewels That Dance. The diamonds were taken out of a cocktail ring that belonged to my Great Great Aunt, and made it in rose gold.

Even now, a few years later, I still look at it in awe. It was worth the months it took to find it, and the months it took to have it custom made. It is completely unique and 100% me. Oh, btw, it came in at under $1,000. 👌🏽

Finding a ring that fits your style and budget can be a hard task, so take a look at these 10 alternative engagement and let your imagination run wild.
