Diamond jewellery is enduringly popular, both because of the strength of the stone and the beauty of its distinct sparkle. Both diamond engagement rings and diamond dress rings are among the most in-demand when it comes to diamond jewellery.


If you’re interested in some sparkle of your own, but don’t like the idea of following the herd, we are lucky enough to have a few suggestions for the best unusual diamond dress rings for you. Read on to see some of our weirdest and most wonderful among our antique and vintage rings.


Unusual Shapes


One of the easiest ways a diamond dress ring can stand out among the crowd is through its overall shape. Unique jewellery lovers will be over the moon with a dress ring that has a shape entirely its own. Take the three examples below to see the many benefits of vintage and antique jewellery. Each piece is individual, and you’re unlikely to find another item out there that looks like these beauties. If you’re interested in oversized jewellery, these unusual examples of diamond dress rings are something worth checking out today.


These examples are all larger-than-life pieces of jewellery that would be the perfect additions to anyone’s jewellery collection. Are you more of a white gold twirling diamond extravaganza, or a yellow gold marquise diamond statement? If not those, why not a platinum twist ring with two standout sparklers?

Unusual Bands


Our next selection of individuals shows us that it doesn’t always have to be the diamonds doing the heavy lifting to make statement diamond jewellery. Sometimes, the best way to have your jewellery stand out is to get jewellery pieces that have metalwork worthy of a gold medal. Check out our examples of diamond dress rings with some serious bands that make a statement before your diamonds even have a chance to shine.


The best way to choose between these three beautiful bands is to decide what shapes you’re more interested in – straight lines of yellow and white gold make contestant number one stand out, while etched roses and leaves give contestant number two something unique. Contestant number three goes another way with curved rings of yellow gold.

Unusual But Understated


The simple fact of unusual statement jewellery is that it is often oversized and very bold. It doesn’t have to be this way, however, and there are plenty of options for those who want to pursue unusual diamond dress rings that don’t take up half of your finger. These rings are easily categorised as being unusual but understated. They have a unique beauty to them that doesn’t command the room around you, but still march to the beat of their own drum.


More unusual diamond cuts like pear-cut diamonds, marquise-cut diamonds, and heart-cut diamonds are good avenues to explore if you’re interested in walking the line between unusual and understated. A unique spread of diamonds across the ring gives one of our examples its appeal, while the other pear-cut stone has an almost peacock-like shape to it. The last example sends a clear message of love to all those around.
