An engagement ring is a promise of forever. In the quest to be unique, some may go far beyond expectations. Diamonds are predictable, and many have opted for statement jewellery pieces to proclaim their love.
Here are a few of the most… unique rings we have come across online:
Gotta catch ’em all:
Remember when Pokemon Go was huge? This couple must have been pretty swept up in the craze, and have the ring to prove it! The centre stone is encircled by a pokeball shape to prove that they have finally captured their love.
A piercing choice:
Piercing engagement rings have been popular among those who don’t want a traditional ring. Instead of wearing a band, the diamond is implanted into the skin of the ring finger.
Game of Thrones fans, we might just have the ring for you. If you’re still heartbroken over the deaths of Daenerys’s beloved winged children, your engagement ring can be the perfect tribute. This bride’s ring is shaped as a dragon in mid-flight, which we’re sure she thought was pretty fly. It even glows in the dark!
Polly want a cracker?
Parrots are beautiful birds, but they are never really associated with weddings. One unique couple, however, opted to showcase their love of birds. This custom-made ring features a mini sculpture of two parrots perched together on the band, and is definitely a scene-stealer.
Take a bite:
Parents often keep their children’s teeth once they’ve fallen out as a special memento. California couple Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger took this to the next level. Unger had his wisdom tooth embedded into the ring instead of a traditional diamond.
A hands-on jewel:
A Japanese man collected his fingernail clippings for a year, then ground it to a powder and baked it to create a “stone” for an engagement ring. The end result is a pitch-black, rock hard stone. If you didn’t know, you would probably never guess that’s it’s made from human nails.
