Unique Diamond Rings

Are you looking for an engagement ring that is distinctive and extraordinary? Brilliant Earth has many options to help you with your search for the perfect unique diamond ring.  Your relationship is special and your ring should be too.


When searching for your perfect ring, consider all of the unique options available to you. Select one or combine several to create a unique diamond ring that exceeds your expectations and stands out from the crowd.

Choose a Unique Diamond Shape

If you want a distinctive ring, consider selecting a shape other than round brilliant or princess cut (the two most popular choices) for your center gem. There are many alternative diamond shapes—oval, pear, marquise, radiant, asscher—and each is beautiful in its own way. Brilliant Earth maintains an extensive collection of hand-selected diamonds in these shapes and more, and can showcase them in any of our engagement ring settings. These “fancy” shaped diamonds look equally beautiful in timeless solitaire settings, contemporary designs, and delicate vintage-inspired rings.

In many cases, simply selecting a less common diamond shape is enough to make your ring stand out from the rest.


Choose a Contemporary Setting

Consider settings that have a bolder, more modern aesthetic for your unique diamond ring. Modern styling in your engagement ring can also amplify your diamond selection.


Great examples of settings that will make your diamond pop are those with a bezel, a wider band, a brushed or matte finish, or a precious metal halo. Another striking choice is a ring with a split shank, which is composed of two bands—often adorned with diamonds–that divide at the top of the ring and then reconnect at the bottom of the band. This style combines the look a wider band with a more feminine feel.

Choose Yellow or Rose Gold

Why not choose a yellow or rose gold setting for a unique and stunning ring? The golden and blush hues of these precious metals stand out in a sea of platinum and white gold and flatter many skin tones for a simple and striking way to make your diamond ring unique.

Choose a Diamond Band as an Engagement Ring

Some women love the idea of wearing a diamond band without a center stone as their engagement ring. There are no rules about engagement rings, and you do not have to choose a prominent center gemstone to create an exquisite ring. Whether you’re awed by a diamond eternity band, or smitten with a diamond floral motif, consider a piece from Brilliant Earth’s wide-ranging collection of bands for an incredibly unique diamond ring.
