Do you enjoy browsing through pictures of interesting jewelry items? Even if you are a diehard traditional-ring-type lady, you may enjoy looking at very non-traditional designs. Who would wear a bridal ring shaped like the Brooklyn Bridge? Surely women wouldn’t want to wear an engagement ring shaped like a mountain Temple in Bhutan, would they?
The fascinating part about architectural bridal rings is that they are so different from anything else out there. Some of the designs are actually quite clever on the part of the jewelry maker.
Trying To Look At Engagement Ring Designing From The Makers Point Of View
When a jewelry maker is trying to come up with a unique design for an engagement ring, he or she has a core group of qualities or characteristics that can be mingled, featured, or left out of the design altogether. Some of the things they have to plan are :
- The Profile Height
- The Choice Of Metal
- The Type/ Types Of Gemstones
- The Size Of The Gemstones
- The Color Of The Stones
- The Setting Style
Another thing they keep in mind is their intended customer. Will the design appeal to the conservative customer, or should it melt the heart of the avante garde uber-individual lady? Architectural rings are very, very nontraditional. This is not an engagement ring style you remember your Grandmother wearing.
No Matter How Unusual The Engagement Ring Design, There Will Be Someone Out There Who Absolutely Loves It.
I have to give the ladies credit. There is something quite fearless and fully present about the personality who would love to wear one of these styles on their finger. A wallflower? No. Someone who prefers to blend in? No. A lady who is a trendy forward thinker and doesn’t mind attention? Yes. Bold? Outspoken? Probably. Below are three designs that let you view the details of rings in the architectural category.
Platinum Plated Architecture Engagement Ring
The platform top of this ring is a great reminder that all the world’s a stage, and on that stage, we all crave genuine everlasting love. When true love finds you, your spirit soars and you want to climb to the highest pinnacle and shout for joy.
If you love thick chunky jewelry pieces, you may love the substantial width of this band. You will definitely know it’s there and so will everyone else. Few rings would come close to this one as a conversation starter.
Bold and theatrical, this design promotes the rich lady look. It reminds me of something that Zsa Zsa Gabor would have slipped on her finger after marrying one of her millionaire husbands. The architectural build of the band can be seen in so many different ways by different people.
Personally, it reminds me of the World’s Fair and the Eiffel Tower with a bit of upside-down Southern Belle hoop skirt added in. Another unique feature is the visual trickery of this design. This ring looks so different when viewed from other angles.
This Platinum-plated Big Love Heart Ring has such an endearing name. Big Love Heart sounds so romantic. The aesthetics of this ring are quite unusual. Tiny stones and curves on the bottom, one smooth expanse of large carat weight stone on top.
Does it have a realistic sparkle? Luckily, there are customer videos that show the brilliance of the stones and the true profile height of the setting.
Ring Settings That Are Reminiscent Of Bridges, Buildings, Or City Skylines.
One of the most perfect examples of architectural ring designs are the skyline models. They don’t represent the broad concept of romance like a traditional bridal ring. Instead, they mean something personal and deep to the engaged couple. If the two of you met and fell in love in Paris, a Paris skyline engagement ring would be tres bon, oui? Of course, Cityscape, or Skyline rings make better wedding bands because they take up a lot of real estate on your finger. It is also very hard to find these rings with fake diamonds. However, the choices are getting better.
Just like couples get to choose where, when, and how they get married, they can also choose a Cityscape ring to celebrate their best memories. The rings featured here are by CaitlinMinimalist. Not only are they different, they are custom-made especially for you. You get to choose the city by drop down list and input your preferred material:
- Solid 925 Sterling Silver
- 18K Gold ∙ Rose Gold
