Engagement rings represent love, commitment, and the promise of forever! Their significance to each and every couple is unique & we love what they represent for the beginning of an engagement and future marriage! In Part Two of today’s engagement ring post, today we’ll be featuring a few of the most beautiful engagement rings with a unique take on tradition! If you loved last week’s Favorite Engagement Rings, you’ll adore today’s post as well!
Whether they hold precious gemstones or a mine cut diamond – there is nothing that we don’t adore about brides that are breaking from the mold!
Bayside Bride Loves: Handmade Creations
This beautiful engagement ring is photographed by Caroline Fontenot Photography and created by Sundance Jewelry, who sells handcrafted jewelry from feature artists. The oval diamond in the wedding band was given to bride from aunt, and it belonged to her mother on a necklace. The bride and groom purchased bands from a jeweler in College Station, TX and had them put the diamond in the band. Since the wedding, they added a tiny diamond to the band at their first anniversary and will continue to add one for each year!

When we came across this absolutely spectacular engagement ring photographed by Heather Z Photography, we just knew that colored engagement rings deserved their own post! How spectacular is this beauty? A center stone surrounded by two halos of diamonds, and a matching wedding band!

The absolutely beautiful pink tourmaline engagement ring was submitted by Bree of Capitol Romance and was photographed by the talented, Live It Out Photography. Bree described herself as, “really not a diamond gal” and decided to design her dream ring at I Gorman Jewelers in Washington DC! We absolutely ADORE this ring for so many reasons!

Bayside Bride Loves: Mix & Match Stackable Bands
These absolutely gorgeous rings were photographed by the talented Caroline Fontenot Photography! In the brides words: “My mom and aunt both have wedding rings that are wide bands with 3 rows of diamonds and I’ve always loved their rings. I thought I wanted one just like my mom’s but also wanted to have an actual engagement ring. We decided we could use the sapphire and diamond band as the engagement ring and then added the other two at the wedding ceremony.”
Bayside Bride Loves: Turquoise Detailing
Even most of the unique engagement rings contain precious gems – but we were absolutely awe-struck to see a precious stone like turquoise accompanying a beautiful center diamond! This absolutely spectacular engagement ring is photographed by Coty Jones Photography and is one of our favorites! We love the rich blue-green color of the side stones! Beautiful!

When a ring can double as a true work of art, how could we not fall in love with it! This beautiful image by Borrowed Blue Photo shows the sweeping use of line and detail that set this ring apart!
