Ready to pop the question? Check out these inspired, out-of-the box engagement rings from Seattle designers and beyond.
You’re likely to wear it every day, so make sure your engagement ring reflects your personal style.
Here are five picks that break from the standard (albeit very pretty) princess-cut solitaire.
Todd Reed Black Diamond, Brilliant Diamond and 18K Rose Gold Engagement Ring ($5,500 at Fox’s Seattle, downtown). There’s nothing more chic than black. Colorado jewelry designer Reed sets dramatic stones in 18K rose gold for a ring that’s both timeless and very of-the-moment.
Lolide 14K Gold And London Blue Topaz Set ($795 at lolide.com). Unique and gender-neutral, this set includes a hand-textured engagement ring and coordinating brushed wedding band by Seattle jewelry maker Lori Linkous Devine. A clear blue topaz pops from the gold framing.
Coast 14K White Gold Engagement Ring (starting at $3,395 at Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store). A new ring with a vintage feel, this retro-modern piece is available at Robbins Brothers in downtown Seattle, and at the local company’s new Bellevue store at 33 Bellevue Way NE.
LilyEmme Moissanite Oval Bezel Engagement Ring ($1,200–$1,400 at lilyemmejewelry.com). Seattle designer Valerie Nethery uses recycled 14K or 18K gold and Moissanite, a diamond alternative, to create this modern, minimalist piece. Available in white, rose and yellow gold.
Adina Reyter Pave Band Ring ($398 at adinadesign.com). Scared of snags (and overspending)? Opt for a band with inlaid diamonds, such as this one from Adina Reyter, a Los Angeles jewelry designer with a slew of celebrity fans. Available in rose or yellow gold and sterling silver.
