Buying jewellery can be easy of your partner has a simpler, more traditional taste. However, when it comes to an engagement ring, many people want something a little bit different. To help you make the right choice, here’s some examples of the types of unique engagement rings Melbourne has to offer. Mixing coloured stones with bright diamonds Do colours and diamonds go together? We certainly think they do, as long as you find a jeweller with a great eye for design. One of the less risqué steps is to choose a sparkling diamond for the centre of the setting, and surround it with pink diamonds for a more subtle dash of colour. If you want to go all out with a unique style, there are several beautiful coloured stones you can choose. Ruby and sapphire are two such stones that work beautifully with diamonds. This is where you should always as for a custom jewellery consultation if you want to do something a little different. Your jeweller will be able to bring your ideas to life in a classy and elegant design. Shake things up with rose or yellow gold One of the common misconceptions is that diamonds should only be paired with silver or white gold bands. This may be fine if you’re a traditionalist, but why stick to somebody else’s rules? You can find some absolutely breathtaking unique engagement rings in Melbourne featuring sparkling diamond on a yellow gold or rose gold band. You can even mix things up further, by choosing a yellow gold or rose gold band and including a combination of diamonds and coloured stones. As a result, you get a unique ring that’s special just for you. Plus, we also think this combination looks incredible! Stunning cluster rings They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. If that’s true, then why limit yourself to a single diamond on your ring? A popular way to create a more vibrant look is by using a cluster setting. This generally will mean you have a larger diamond as a centrepiece, or even a different stone. With smaller diamonds clustered around, you get a visually stunning piece. As for the style of cluster, the choice is all yours! Looking for the most unique engagement rings in Melbourne?
