Top Non-Traditional Engagement Rings

Your bride-to-be’s engagement ring should be as unique as she is — and while a classic design suits some brides, there are more options than ever before for engagement rings that break convention. If following the status quo is far from your style, read on to discover what makes an engagement ring non-traditional, and where to find non-traditional engagement rings at With Clarity!

What makes an engagement ring non-traditional?

Put simply, some rings have a history. Solitaire diamonds, halo designs, and three-stone settings have been on the engagement ring scene for a while now. In fact, decorative elements like milgrain and filigree date back longer than engagement rings themselves!

What makes an engagement ring non-traditional is not forgoing tradition altogether, but rather, combining classic elements in a unique way or providing an interesting twist on a traditional design. Follow your instincts to spot an engagement ring that stands out from the crowd — and chances are, that diamond will be non-traditional!

Where to find non-traditional settings at With Clarity

Each collection at With Clarity includes some non-traditional settings. Keep an eye out for solitaires that turn the center diamond to an east-west position, rather than north-south — and pave bands that also line the sides with milgrain.

However, With Clarity’s most modern designs can be found in our contemporary collection. These rings feature non-traditional settings and interesting details alongside tried-and-true elements, such as pave settings and solitaire diamonds.
