Nowadays, brides aren’t necessarily interested in the traditional when it comes to their big day. A white dress? A tulle veil? Those are becoming less and less of the norm, with fewer run-of-the-mill ideas taking the lead. Not surprisingly, the same can be said when it comes to any pre-nuptial events, such as picking an engagement ring.
The once-popular platinum and diamond setting is now being outshined by more off-kilter styles. Opal and rutilated quartz replace clear diamonds, while everything from arcs and triangles to door knocker shapes make for more of a conversation piece than your typical ring.
For those of us that dream of something out of the ordinary, we rounded up 17 engagement rings that are anything but typical. And don’t worry—we included options for every price point (because not everyone wants to break the bank in order to pop the question; some want a venue to actually tie the knot at).
