Want to find the right ring to ask her to marry you? There are a lot of engagement rings that look exactly the same, so it’s important to make yours unique for your partner. You know how much we love to talk about wedding jewelry here on Bespoke Bride, so this time – we’ll delve into how you can customise your engagement ring. The good news is that you can really make your ring stand out by making it your own. Consider one of these ten original ideas if you want an engagement ring that is as unique as your love.
Put a personal message on the band
A touching way to make an engagement ring unique is to have a special message written inside the band. A small emotional touch can be added to the inside of the ring by writing a few important words or numbers on it.
Choose a date that means something to you, like the first time you kissed or the anniversary of your first date. “Two hearts, one love” and “always and forever” are also nice options. Tattooing song lines or words from a shared favorite movie or book is a unique way to show that you like what someone else likes. Get a secret message or inside joke carved if you want to add a funny touch that will make your partner laugh every time they read it.
Only you and the person you want to hear this need to read this. The cost of engraving is low, but it makes a gift stand out in a big way. A short message can be etched on the ring to make it even more special.
Larsen Jewellery has a lot of ways to make your jewelry unique, and etching is one of them. Any of the rings on display at Larsen can be changed to fit your needs.

Put on a gem
Putting both of your birthstones in the ring is a beautiful and important way to show how much you care about each other. Putting each of your birthstones into the pattern of the ring makes it more unique.
You can add to the effect by putting your birthstones next to the gem. You could also use small versions of your birthstones as accent stones in the ring band. There is even a chance that one of your birthstones will be on each side of the ring.
Birthstones are beautiful and bright, and they also mean a lot to people. Choose stones with colors that go well together and show who you both are. With so many choices, you can find the right birthstone for the ring you’ve been planning. Hold on to your birthstones for as long as you can.

Use a mix of different colored diamonds
Using rare colored diamonds in an engagement ring is a great way to show that you know your partner and what they like. Instead of the usual dull diamond, you could use a diamond with a bright fancy colour diamond as your focus.
Diamonds of any color have meanings, but pink and blue diamonds are especially linked to beauty and women, while yellow and blue diamonds are linked to happiness and sunshine. If you want to stand out, use a unique color like cognac, peach, or violet.
Because colorful diamonds are so much rarer than white diamonds, you might be able to be sure that you’re buying something that doesn’t exist anywhere else. Choose a diamond whose color goes well with your partner’s lively personality to make the ring even more special. Because each color means something, colored gems are even more beautiful.

Engrave images to make patterns
The ring can be personalized to make it more special to the person who wears it. To make a unique statement, you can engrave things like small geometric patterns, nature designs, flower patterns, and even song lines.
You can carve swirls, dots, lines, and angles on plain gold, rose gold, platinum, or titanium bands to make them look more fancy. Subtle themes from nature, like leaves, trees, or flowers, suggest growth and energy, which makes them perfect for an artistic touch.
Or, you could have the words to a song you both love etched on it for a more personal touch. Any image that means something to the two of you can be carved into a ring.
Make your band width bigger
You can make a beautiful, one-of-a-kind engagement ring set by adding two or more bands. White gold, yellow gold, and rose gold all go well together, depending on your tastes and how you mix metals.
Different heights and lengths of bands can be stacked on top of each other. Layers can be made unique by adding stones like birthstones or colored diamonds, or by etching them with words or phrases that are important to the wearer. Because there are so many ways to combine metal, shape, and decoration, the choices are almost limitless. You can go for simple flamboyance or bold sophistication.
With the stacked style, your ring will be both unique and on-trend. Putting your wedding bands on top of each other has a lot of meaning.
Add a gem in the shape of a heart
A heart-shaped diamond set as the focus has a clear meaning that a true lover will understand. A heart shape is the best non-standard choice because it shows love to everyone. You can’t go wrong with a simple open heart pattern or a beautiful reversed heart diamond.
Choose a stone that is very clear to show off the perfect heart shape. Mix the diamond with a pave band with smaller stones to make it even more glamorous. The heart form and pave setting make sure that the most light and flames are reflected.
The unique shape of this ring gives it a magical feel. Give a diamond in the shape of a heart to your sweetheart to show how much you care.

Use different colored gems
Instead of a diamond, you can make a big, one-of-a-kind statement with a brilliant sapphire, a hot ruby, or a lush emerald. Using the partner’s favorite gem color shows that you like and respect their unique style.
Or, wow them with a burst of color that shows how full of life they are. Sapphires stand for honesty and integrity, while rubies and emeralds stand for passion and strength. Like your friendship, each message is different.
Make sure to set off the jewel with an expensive metal like platinum or rose gold. Anyone would love you forever if you gave them an extremely blue diamond or a red ruby. Let the color of the center diamond show how bright and unique your love is.
Show off the most important things in your home
You can make something truly one-of-a-kind by using stones or metals from a piece of jewelry you love. The result is that known things are made new again. Diamonds, pearls, and colored stones from family jewelry can be put in a new ring.
Change the gems in your parents’ wedding bands or the parents of your partner to make a new wedding band. It’s a win-win situation to give old gold a new use and keep valuable family heirlooms safe.
Getting money back is a bonus! By reusing old jewelry from your family, you can make a ring that has the love of many generations in it. Making a keepsake ring is a way to connect your shared future with your family’s past.
Use different metals
Platinum, rose gold, and yellow gold are just a few of the metals that, when put together, look beautiful and have important symbolic meanings. Mixing metals is a smart way to show that you accept that everyone has their own tastes. The mix of your lives is shown by the two-tone pattern of white and yellow gold.
A rose gold ring with a white gold band is another choice. Mixing the traditional warmth of yellow gold with the cutting-edge coolness of platinum makes a strong statement. When you mix metals like gold with titanium or silver, you get a unique look.
The use of different metals also lets you make each surface unique by etching or adding other details. Your mixed-metal ring combines the unique traits of each metal to make a single symbol of your love for each other.

Choose something that has no balance
Asymmetrical designs on engagement rings are both special and in style. In asymmetrical bands, the standard round, symmetrical solitaire is swapped out for a more daring shape. Try moving the center diamond just a little bit off center to make a strikingly different look.
On the other hand, you could put a big diamond in the shape of a marquise or pear on one side of the band. This is interesting to look at from every angle. One way to increase the edge factor is to cut stones at an angle. Another is to play around with other shapes that aren’t perfect. Putting the smaller stones in the band in different spots gives visual interest.
The unbalanced design is meant to draw attention to the uneven sparkle of the centerpiece. Because it looks and feels current, an uneven ring is a great way to show off your own style. A crooked and uneven outline will show that your love is unique and free-spirited.
When it comes to THE ring, you can think of a lot of different things. You can make a ring that is as unique as your love by adding carvings, gems, and different metals to the design.
