These 21 Gorgeous Engagement Rings Are Out of the Ordinary (in the Best Way)

Engagement rings symbolize much more than the commitment to spend the rest of your life with one person—they're a representation of your relationship with your S.O., as well as your personal style. So it's only natural that more and more brides are starting to gravitate toward nontraditional wedding rings that are as unique as they are.

"There has been a big shift," New York–based jeweler Anna Sheffield tells MyDomaine. "Part of it is that people are more interested in [how a ring reflects their] core values. We want conflict-free diamonds, recycled gold, and reclaimed stones." She also points out that modern brides-to-be are less concerned with "status quo" rings, instead opting for mixed metals, colored antique stones, and curved bands that stack.
