If you’re a nontraditional bride or you just want a unique engagement ring, there are plenty of options out there. From colorful center stones and vintage-inspired designs to mixed metal settings, we got the scoop on what’s hot right now in bridal jewelry. A simple solitaire engagement ring may be a classic choice, but you’re probably going to want to step out of the box once you see these one-of-a-kind dazzlers.
If you’re looking to go the nontraditional route, a colorful diamond is a beautiful choice. Fancy-hued diamonds, like yellow and pink, stand out from the crowd without feeling too over the top. If you want to make a bolder statement, try an ultra-modern chocolate or black diamond.
If you’re considering a colorful center stone, you don’t have to go with a diamond—there are lots of other amazing options out there! Sapphires are great alternatives to yellow and pink diamonds, and rubies and emeralds give off an instant vintage vibe. Another thought: A stone with multidimensional color—like alexandrite—creates a cool color-change effect.
