It's still Engagement Week here at Bridal Musings, and over the last few days, we've been sharing advice and ideas for buying your one and only, the perfect engagement ring.

If you're planning to pop the question to someone special, then they deserve a ring that's just as unique as they are.

The other day, we shared some beautiful classic sparklers, but if the one in your life errs more on the side of all things eclectic, unusual or trendy, then we've got just the line up of alternative engagement rings they'll adore.

Choosing an alternative engagement ring can often be tricky, because the options are endless and the rulebook is out the window.

A unique engagement ring doesn't have to be completely outlandish, it just steps outside the box of traditional diamond solitaires or classic setting and stone combinations.

You can opt for a diamond in a quirky setting, go for unusual stones in a vintage style ring, or mix things up with new metals, textured stones, and innovative settings.

Pay attention to your other half's style, are they cool and minimal, do they love all things antique, are they into bright colours or bold statements, or do they love to wear something a little artistic or elaborate?

And if your choosing your own engagement ring (you lucky thing!) maybe one of these beauties will strike your fancy…
