Alternative styles of engagement rings are an increasing trend amongst younger generations who are looking for something different to the commonplace styles we are used to seeing. Thanks to emerging and commodotising technology that is becoming readily available to most budgets, the breadth of designs available today to anyone looking to design their own engagement ring is vast.
Many of the younger generation are choosing to create something more self-referential and alternative to incumbent style. Today we’re having a look at some of the best alternative engagement rings ideas we’ve seen, and have made for our customers at Hatton Jewels.
