From Something Old, Something New: Non-Traditional Engagement Rings
Non-traditional engagement rings that incorporate heirloom metals and gemstones in novel designs are a wonderful way to add a modern and personal dimension to these sentimental treasures as well as a new chapter in their (and your) history. Take a look at these custom engagement rings and wedding rings by CustomMade artisans that turn something old into something new.
The “For Maya” wedding ring set by e. scott originals features blue sapphires, yellow citrines, and diamonds from old family rings in two unique 14K white gold engagement and wedding rings that can be combined “to make it look like one funky ring.” Contact Emily Scott and have her draw on her wide-ranging creative sensibilities, from Victoriana to tattoos to grandma’s jewelry box, to create a non-traditional engagement ring design for you.
Two inherited 1.000 ct diamonds motivated a customer to approach the artisans of 18Karat and request a design that would showcase the stones without creating a bulky ring. She also wanted “something unusual.”
The result: a custom diamond ring with an unusual, graceful, scalloped 18K yellow gold band that is striking in its own right without diverting attention from the diamonds. Have a challenging custom ring request? Contact brothers Massimo and Dino Giannetti and discuss your ideas.
Heather Hoffman Handmade Jewelry can use your heirloom metals and diamonds to create unique wedding and engagement rings. She can also add hand engravings to your design. Contact Heather Hoffman and have her place “grandma’s mine cut diamonds” into a “branch-like ring” or create other one-of-a-kind non-traditional engagement rings.
There are surprises and then there are well-received surprises. This sapphire wedding ring by Sculpted Jewelry Designs was “lovingly received.” Created for a surprise proposal, this white gold ring features a sapphire centerpiece and diamonds on the side that belonged to the groom’s grandmother.
In a recommendation for Patrick Burt and his work, the customer writes:
He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, giving advice based on past experience, but also listening to what I had to say, and taking my wants and needs very seriously. I gave him a very short deadline, and then delayed it while we waited for the diamonds that my grandmother shipped across the country. He still came through and got the order ready in time. The ring could not have come out more perfect. It was even more beautiful than I could have hoped for. When I gave it to my fiancée she felt the exact same way about it as I did.
