If you (or your intended) have been married before you might be looking for something a little different and unique to make this engagement stand out. Here are some ideas on how to create a unique, custom engagement rings for your proposal.
Rather than using a clear stone such as diamond you can use coloured gemstones. Some people like to incorporate stones with a special meaning to them such as the birthstones of either the partners, or their children. Another idea for using gemstones is to adopt the Victorian era idea of spelling words with the stones such as the DARLING ring which had a Diamond, Amethyst, Ruby, Lapis, Iris, Nephite (Jade) and Garnet. These rings carry with them a special meaning to make them truly unique to your partnership.
If you'd prefer to have a subtler customisation you can look for a plain band, and rather than choosing a stone to feature on the ring, you can have a special inscription carved on the ring. This could be a quote from a favourite book on poem, or simply some significant dates in your relationship. This a great option for people who don't feeling comfortable wearing elaborate or ornate jewellery.
Rather that sticking with the same precious metals such as gold and platinum, you could choose a unique material for the band. Ceramics or tougher metals such as titanium can provide a rugged, and unique style of engagement ring. Hardwoods are also a beautiful option for unique rings, with a warm and welcoming texture. These non traditional materials can be a great option for people with active lifestyles or jobs where you have limited jewellery options.
If you would live a diamond rings there is no need to go with a single solitaire. If you are looking for a big and sparkly ring a cluster ring or pave setting can be a great way to up the sparkle factor on your engagement ring. A second marriage doesn't have to have a smaller ring, especially if you now have a larger budget to spend on a ring.
If you are looking to find a truly unique ring for your second marriage, why not speak with a custom engagement ring designer. They can take all of your desires and requirements into accounts and design a ring that is truly perfect and unique for your marriage.
