Hi, loves! ‘Tis the season for engagements… and non-traditional engagement rings are trending for all the right reasons! Emma here and if you’re after an engagement ring unlike anything you’ve seen before, you’ll find it on this list. Non-traditional rings — also known as alternative engagement rings — are a popular trend because each ring is so unique. Unlike rings you might find in a factory, these handmade engagement rings are individually produced with love and care just for you. Rather than a traditional diamond stone, band, or classic settings, these are made with your unique style and personality in mind. And if you’re going to look at it every day, you might as well love it, right? That’s what we think, too!

To help you find the perfect engagement ring for your style (and budget), we’ve rounded up 100 of the best non-traditional engagement rings from top experts. We’ve included a little bit of everything: art deco inspired rings, moissanite engagement rings, gemstones, raw stones, modern and minimalist designs, vintage inspired rings, sparkly diamond rings, and more. We think you’re going to love what we’ve found! Now, on to the list — and tell me which one you like best! Enjoy!

Happy Monday, loves! How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was fantastic; we enjoyed spending the weekend with family and friends! Did you watch Gilmore Girls? I haven’t watched it yet because I want to re-watch the finale before starting; I can’t remember the exact ending — so, no spoilers! ;) Anyways, we hope your holiday weekend was great, too.

The holiday season has officially begun and you know what that means: it’s ENGAGEMENT SEASON! We thought the engagement ring had all the glory but then we spotted these vintage inspired velvet ring boxes from Secret Keeper Box… and wow. Talk about upping the ante! We love these unique ring boxes for engagements / proposals (can you imagine the photos from proposals caught on camera?) and also as vessels to hold your beautiful wedding bands. These velvet boxes also make great gift boxes for bridesmaid rings: think herkimer diamond rings (they’re more affordable than they sound), tiny personalized rings, or any of the rings from our bridesmaid gift ideas list. (They’re all great for asking ‘be my bridesmaid?‘ to your girls.) These velvet ring boxes also make a charming alternative to a ring pillow and can hold your ring at the ceremony — and afterward on your armoire or dresser as a ring holder (for cleaning or washing your hands). Ah, so many possibilities in one sweet little box. Wait until you see these fab colors; I want them all! Read on for more…
