When you're picking out an engagement ring for your fiance, you want it to be pretty. But that's something everyone wants — on top of that, the ring must also be unique because that's precisely what your bride or groom is to you. With that in mind, let’s take a look at one of the most unusual and gorgeous types of ring design — asymmetrical engagement rings!

 

About Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

In terms of ring design, it means that an engagement ring won't have any parts that are mirror images of themselves. Instead, this look invokes a more stark design approach than the traditional ring, with interesting shapes, curves, and edges. 

While asymmetrical design results in a statement piece, that doesn’t mean it needs to be chaotic and random. That's the beautiful and challenging part about asymmetrical shapes; simultaneously, they're radical yet balanced. So yes, asymmetrical designs have a more free flow, but it's still a flow, and everything is supposed to come together into a coherent whole. 

If all of this sounds a bit esoteric, it’s because it is. Defining precisely what this means is difficult, but the end goal is to have a shape that’s not symmetrical but is still pleasing to the eye; definitely not jarring. 

So, how does all of this factor into engagement rings? The usual engagement ring has a gemstone as the centrepiece of its design. And as you'll see below, while that's not set in stone — quite literally — it's still the core idea with most asymmetrical designs. So while the central stone does still exist in most of these engagement rings, it's often offset from its usual central location. 

 

Choosing an Asymmetrical Ring

Naturally, choosing the right asymmetrical ring will likely take some time. These designs are more of an acquired taste than the regularly shaped engagement rings, and it may take you a while to pick the most suitable one. 

It's crucial to find engagement ring cuts and styles that still enhance the best features of your hand. Make sure you take your hand shape into account. Study the width and length of your fingers, as well as your hand's overall size. Other aesthetic aspects matter as well, such as how long your nails regularly are (they can have an elongating effect on your fingers). 

That being said, you’re probably itching to learn about the different types of asymmetrical rings you can find in practice.

 

Different Types of Asymmetrical Engagement Rings

 

Asymmetrical coloured stone rings

For this type of engagement ring, freeform gemstones are the best option as they fit with the asymmetrical nature of the design. Coloured gemstones also add to the unique look by allowing the asymmetrical shapes and the colours to play off against one another. 

When these rings have multiple stones, oval and round stones are usually paired together, with a small bright one and a larger dark one. Also, smaller groups of coloured gemstones can greatly contrast the whiteness of a colourless diamond. 


Two stone rings

If you're not looking for a grouping of stones, you can keep things simple by just using a pair of them. On asymmetrical rings, a larger diamond will be a great match with a smaller sapphire or ruby that matches its shape. Here, their colours further add to the asymmetry of the entire piece. 


Asymmetrical clusters

Finally, the most asymmetrical among all of these are asymmetrical cluster rings. As you may have guessed from the name, these rings are topped off with a collection of stones gathered in a sort of a clump. Usually, they vary in colour and size, adding to the intriguing nature of the arrangement. Here, the asymmetrical nature of the ring is derived from the randomness of the stones' shapes. 


Caring for Your Asymmetrical Ring

Rings with unusual aesthetics and shapes attract more eyes, but they can also garner the wrong kind of attention. If you want to ensure your asymmetrical engagement ring is safe, provide it with the protection it deserves. Q Report is here to provide comprehensive and specialized coverage that allows you to wear your jewellery carefree.
