In a word, no—unless you want them to. Many brides embrace the opportunity to marry two different but complementary styles when designing an overall wedding set. Instead of wearing them flush together on one finger, some brides decide to wear their rings on different hands, which opens up a world of style possibilities. For more inspiration, explore matching wedding and engagement rings!
Unique Engagement Rings
While a unique wedding band can make a fabulous statement on its own, many brides-to-be choose to pair their wedding rings with equally exceptional and unique engagement rings. Here are a few ways to ensure that your engagement ring stands out in a crowd. For more ideas, read our Custom Wedding Rings Guide.
What’s Old Is New Again?
If you relish true vintage style, explore our antique and vintage ring gallery to find a one-of-a-kind unique wedding ring for your wedding. These rings come from romantic eras of the past and feature incredible artistry, as well as distinctive design elements that you’re unlikely to see in a new ring.
Or, if you would like a new ring that has been fashioned in the vintage style, consider antique style engagement rings. These rings are inspired by the unique features of one-of-a-kind antique rings—such as milgrain, filigree, and ornate embellishment—and translate them into styles that feel at once heirloom and contemporary.
Consider Unique Colored Gemstones
Choosing an engagement ring with a vibrant sapphire as a center gemstone guarantees that it will stand out in a sea of diamond engagement rings, and will pair beautifully with a unique sapphire wedding ring. Or you can surround a center diamond with a sapphire halo (or a gorgeous green emerald halo, as in actress Olivia Wilde’s ring). You can set one of our beautiful unique colored gemstones into a wide variety of engagement ring settings, creating a ring that tells the world that you don’t play by the rules!
Fall For Fancy Shaped Diamonds
If you are set on having a diamond ring, but you want don’t want the traditional round shape, consider fancy shaped diamonds, such as princess, emerald, pear, marquise, oval, or asscher cut diamonds. These distinctive shapes lend a more eye-catching and unique look to even solitaires and other very traditional engagement ring settings.
Skip The Center Diamond
For a beautiful, unusual diamond wedding ring, try something truly distinctive—forgo the big center diamond! Valeria Custom Jewelry offers wedding rings that showcase multiple diamonds in intricate designs, such as the Gents Ring and the Intriguing Ring (two of many examples). Though categorized as wedding rings, each of these rings is a showstopper when worn alone. It’s common for vintage rings, especially those of the Art Deco and Retro eras, to feature many diamonds but no prominent center gem.
Consider Modern Rings
A modern wedding ring can be an incredible statement. Many modern styles feature clean, curving lines that bring to mind modern sculpture or the harmony of the natural world.

Nothing’s more unique than a ring designed just for you. Considering creating a beautiful, one-of-a-kind representation of your love with our custom designs process. From unique combinations of gemstone colors and cuts, to mixed metals and personal engravings, the options are nearly endless.
