For some, a traditional diamond ring might just be too “vanilla”. So, we’ve collected a list of perfectly unique engagement rings. These beauties are sure to catch people’s attention and make your ring one of the most memorable anyone has ever seen.
Unique Engagement Rings: 5 Stone Options & 20 Ring Designs!
Salt and Pepper Diamond
My favorite option in this article is the Salt and Pepper diamond. It’s the one I would choose if not going with a traditional clear diamond or moissanite ring. I love how neutral yet attention grabbing it is! And there’s just something that draws my attention to that speckled, charcoal-like, deep grey stone. It’s modern, yet vintage-looking, and the more I stare at it, the more I think I might end up buying one for myself before the year’s up.
I got married many years ago, so my original diamond wedding ring is silver and it’s style is becoming a little dated-looking. I still LOVE it, and wear it often. However, I recently got a gold moissanite ring to wear as a fun alternative, especially when I’m wearing other gold jewelry. You can read more about how I chose that ring HERE; it’s a 1.25 Carat Pear-Shaped Moissanite Ring from Forever Moissanite, and I LOVE it.
Our first Salt and Pepper Diamond option is pear-shaped as well, and probably my favorite.
This Moss Agate stone was what first inspired me to do an entire blog article about unique engagement ring options. First, let me say that I realize a green stone might not be for everyone. But there’s just something about those agate veiny details that make me not be able to take my eyes off this stone.
If you feel the same way, give it a try. You can choose a shop that allows for returns if you don’t like it. Having this unique engagement ring would surely get you lots of questions and compliments!
I adore these unique Morganite engagement rings for their vintage flair and dainty quality. A morganite stone has a warm pink hue, so if “on Wednesdays we wear pink” is your favorite movie quote, a morganite engagement ring might be for you.
I’m sure we can all imagine the type of woman this Black Onyx stone would be perfect for. In my mind, she’s edgy, a little dark, and not afraid to “think outside the box” when it comes to her style. A unique black onyx engagement ring is perfectly paired with diamond or moissanite side stones in these hand-crafted rings. Plus, they’re super affordable!
If you’re in the market for an engagement ring, then chances are you’ve seen Moissanite options all over the place as an alternative to diamond. Here’s a great article ALL ABOUT MOISSANITE, and what its benefits are.

Choosing a Unique Engagement Ring with a Non-Traditional Stone
One thing I will recommend when considering any of these rings is that you do your research on the stone type, Etsy shop or online store, and their policies. Reviews are a great place to start. Also, some stones are harder and more durable than others. Some will also stand the test of time better. Look into what qualities your favorite ring has, and make sure you’re comfortable with its differences from a traditional diamond.
If you’re choosing a stone you’ve never seen in person before, I would highly recommend you make sure there’s a return policy, just in case it isn’t what you expected. I hope you find a unique engagement ring you love and is truly “you”.
