10 Unusual Engagement Rings You Won't See Anywhere Else

Can you guess the world's most influential engagement ring - at least in the last decade? We bet you can - of course it's Kate Middleton's Garrard engagement ring, a 12-carat sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds and worth a staggering $500,000. Prince William's 2010 proposal with the ring, which was given to his mother, Lady Diana Spencer, by Prince Charles, set a firm trend for sapphires in jewelry circles!

But sapphires aren't the only on-trend choice in engagement jewelry; the past few years have seen a surge, too, in platinum halo-cut rings - y'know, a solitaire diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds. Chances are, one or more of your girlfriends has one! It's a popular choice for a reason: halo-cut rings can look really beautiful and, with all of those smaller diamonds, they are super-sparkly, too!

If you don't like the idea of sharing an engagement ring style with your girls, however, help is at hand - we've selected 10 incredible, show-stopping rings that you just won't see on anyone else! Some are seriously unusual (check out that Alexandra Mor sparkler!) while others are a little more traditional (hallo, Tiffany), but pretty rare to see in 2014.
