Ring shopping many times takes place at the beginning of the wedding planning.  Before picking your seasons hues, like fall wedding colors or budgeting Maggie Sottero prices on wedding gowns, you will be dreaming of which ring you’ll be wearing upon your finger for the rest of your life.  For those of you with a more contemporary style, you may find it difficult to locate designs that fit with your ideals–and don’t look like some kind of futuristic nightmare from The Transformers movie series.

Pretty...For A Robot

All of the following samples come from an amazing website at Krikawa.  They have a wide array of very modern engagement rings.  There are other modern and contemporary ring designers out there, but these guys…they basically just put on a clinic.  You should find these unique modern engagement rings attractive at the least, and in a style that may not suit you, but will certainly not embarrass you.  There are a few ways to go modern, starting with the design of the ring.

This ring is amazing, in the sense that it comes with the diamond and the promise band.  We also have few smaller diamonds outlining the elegant and modern shape if the main band.  Multiple diamonds have always been a modern way of adding flair to your ring of choice.  Here we also have a colored diamond.  Yes, this is a real diamond that has been irradiated with certain frequencies to create the hue.  Here’s another example:

This wider band is highlighted with a blue diamond.  You can be sure that of all the modern engagement rings design you will see, women that work with their hands would love this design.  No more protruding setting getting caught and snagged on every little thing it comes across!

So, before jumping into your music planning (wedding first dance songs, wedding processional music,
and bouquet and garter toss songs) or your other apparel (such as tuxedos for weddings for the groom or your tiaras for wedding style), you should look to your ring.  You will have plenty of time for changing your name after marriage after the wedding day.
