For women with an eclectic taste in jewelry, those who like to layer or mix metals, seeking stones or settings unlike most, it is befitting not to settle for a traditional (or expected) engagement ring. Just as bridal designers have evolved to offer a more eclectic and diverse mix of gowns than ever, more reflective of ready to wear styling and a welcome break from traditional bridal, we're completely inspired by the new guard of jewellery designers and the eternally unusual pieces, also offering daring alternatives to traditional designs.
While some of our favourite examples are undeniably nostalgic in their styling, looking to the past or to references of antiquity for inspiration, their new treatment (be it the unusual central stones or unexpected settings) evoke an entirely modern sensibility. A sensibility that feels refreshingly unique, and 'future heirloom' in style.
