What Is A Unique Engagement Ring Setting?

An engagement ring setting is the entire metal part of the ring that holds the all diamonds and gemstones in place. A unique engagement ring setting is one that is not commonly used and that looks unconventional or non-traditional. Setting your center stone horizontally or east-west, incorporating asymmetry into your ring, negative space, unique engagement ring cuts and shapes and varying sizes are all fairly uncommon and will result in a unique setting. Because we create custom engagement rings that are one of a kind, many of the rings in our portfolio utilize unique engagement ring settings.

Is A Unique Engagement Ring Right For You?

Over half of all engagement rings are round diamond solitaires, so even small variations can make for a more unique ring, but the most unique settings are the ones that are totally unexpected and a big departure from the norm. Because we specialize in one of a kind rings, many of our rings are exceedingly unique. Watch the video to learn about some of the most unique engagement rings we’ve designed.
