15 Alternative Engagement Rings for a Bad-ass Bride

15 Alternative Engagement Rings | Southern New England Weddings

While the words “marriage” and “tradition” often go hand-in-hand, I’ve always liked seeing the ways brides break the rules that we typically associate with weddings. For every bride who dreams of that picture-perfect, tearjerker-jewelry-commercial engagement ring, there’s probably another who likes it a little bit more alternative – and those personal touches are easily the coolest part of any wedding story.

In case you find yourself in the latter category, here’s a roundup of some nontraditional engagement ring options that will have you looking beyond your standard princess cut (with a few wedding bands thrown in for further inspiration.) From uncut diamonds to turquoise studded-bands to retro Art Nouveau pieces, they didn’t show you these in Wedding Rings 101.
