Unique Promise Ring Design Ideas

Exchanging promise rings will take your relationship to a level of commitment that instantly transforms, and perhaps elevates, your status as a couple.  While promise rings are often simple designs—gold or platinum bands with a small diamond, an etched design, or engraved with the words “I Promise”—traditional and simple designs don’t always capture the spirit of the couple. While standard style promise rings are gorgeous, sometimes dynamic duos want something more. Some couples crave quirky, beautifully bold, or vintage-inspired rings. There are also couples that just want to design their own creations which suit their own styles and better reflect their unique relationship. Maybe you have no idea what kind of ring you want to wear to show the world your promised commitment. There are so many ring choices and styles… colored gemstones, diamonds, dazzling details, matching sets—we understand how difficult it can be to make a choice! Whatever conundrum might be curtailing your discovery of the picture perfect promise ring, we have you covered. Like always, we’re ready to inspire you with… Brilliance! Ready to end your hunt? Here are some of our favorite unique designs and ideas to help you discover the perfect promise ring.

Stylized Solitaires

A solitaire stone for a promise ring doesn’t need to be daintily dropped in the band. Look for architectural settings to hold your precious cargo—whether it’s a diamond or a gorgeous colored gemstone. We love this antique portrait-style mount for a quarter-carat diamond; many jewelers refer to this as a buttercup setting, and it’s often used for opal solitaires.

The u-prong setting creates a creative way to hold the center stone. When viewed from the front and back of the ring, the prongs almost resemble lucky horseshoes. You may even ask the jeweler to create horseshoe detailed prongs for a cute and quirky nod to western roots… or as a hidden good luck charm!

Remembering Your Roots

Use your family’s roots to inspire your ring. Add ancestral crests to promise rings or pull from symbols of your cultural history. In Ireland, the Claddagh ring is used to show an individual’s romantic status. The Claddagh is worn on the left hand for married individuals (with the tip of the heart aimed at the wrist) and individuals who are engaged (with the heart pointing towards the fingers). On the right hand, the Claddagh means that an individual is in a relationship (if the tip of the heart aims at the wrist) or that the individual is available (if the tip of the heart is directed toward the fingers).

Making it Extraordinary

Rings are not simply accessories symbolic of a vow or promise, but they also are magnificent wearable sculptures. Design a ring that celebrates your partner’s passions, hobbies or personal style and craft a look that is like nothing else out there. One couple pulled inspiration from nature, and created this hand-carved tree-inspired ring sparkling with gemstone ivy.

Standing Out

Personal fashion also influences our jewelry—even a symbolic ring. If your soulmate has an edge to their style, opt for metals that veer from the traditional hues. Try black gold for the band and then drop in black diamonds or white diamonds. Bright gemstones—including turquoise—also pop in front of blackened metals. This engagement ring lets the midnight-hued gold create a black velvet canvas for dazzling white diamond.

One thing’s for sure—don’t ever let tradition pave your way! Your relationship and love story hold the ideal inspiration for the perfect promise ring. Seal your commitment—however you may define it—by choosing the ring that fits your story. Your ring can be whatever your imagination draws…traditional, quirky, small, big or maybe even incredibly intricate. Let your heart pull you in the direction of a promise ring that you know—deep down—uniquely captures true love with flawless Brilliance.
