An Engagement Ring Style as Unique as Your Love Story
We support and celebrate couples from all walks of life. Every engagement ring we sell is handmade with care and attention to detail. Our designs encourage out-of-the-box thinking and non-traditional ways of sharing your love with the world.
Just as no two relationships are the same, there's no "right" way to select an engagement ring for your partner. As a matter of fact, a woman with specific tastes and a strong sense of style might prefer to choose her own engagement ring! The important thing is knowing your partner inside and out and providing a proposal experience she'll love.
Our styles go beyond the traditional gold and diamond engagement rings you'll find in a standard jewelry shop. We imbue our timeless and durable metal bands with beautiful and imaginative materials like otherworldly meteorites, ancient dinosaur bones, and iridescent abalone shells.
For those who love the look of a gleaming gemstone ring, we have stunning opal bands in a multitude of colors, from watery blue to fiery orange and red. Our opal engagement rings are paired with stripes of yellow, white, and rose gold for an eye-catching contrast and inlaid with polished reclaimed wood that glows with a subtle radiance.
Whereas mined diamonds present numerous ethical and ecological concerns, our materials are sustainably sourced from reputable suppliers. We verify the authenticity of every material we use and coat our more delicate inlays with protective enamel to ensure their longevity. Each engagement ring in our shop is a tiny piece of history, an exquisite complement to the remarkable history you and your partner have lived together.

Peerless Ring Design at an Unbelievable Price
How much should a woman's engagement ring cost? At Rings by Lux, we believe the price of an engagement ring shouldn't matter. It's more important to choose an engagement ring style your fiancée-to-be will adore, one that shows how well you know her and how much you value her love and partnership.
We've achieved our luxurious designs by building deep, long-lasting partnerships with verified suppliers and by sourcing our own found and reclaimed materials. We use naturally-fallen timber and salvaged metal and wood to create our extraordinary rings by hand. These resourceful tactics allow us to offer our luxury engagement rings at a price that's much more accessible than your average ring shop.

Dazzling Opal Engagement Rings
Glittering, shimmering, a breathtaking kaleidoscope of color: no gemstone catches the light quite like an opal. These gems' mesmerizing appearance and vast spectrum of hues make them our gemstone of choice for our women's engagement rings.
When you shop for a traditional engagement ring, your choices typically include a couple of metal options—gold, platinum, and sterling silver being the most common—and a bewildering miasma of stone shapes. Most classic engagement rings for women feature a diamond in one of the following cuts: round, oval, pear, marquise, square, or princess. Some diamond ring settings incorporate other gemstones like emerald or sapphire.
While there's nothing wrong with diamond engagement rings—particularly if their settings use lab-created diamonds—we believe in a unique approach to engagement ring style. Our gemstone rings cater to those who love jewelry that is easy to wear without sacrificing style or romance.
Our ring design team favors gemstone settings that are built into the ring. Protruding stones frequently get caught on clothing, snagged on seat belts, and tangled in long hair. An inlaid ring style offers all the beauty of a traditional gemstone ring without the inconvenience.
Price is another factor to consider when shopping for gemstone jewelry. Classic gemstone choices like diamond, emerald, and sapphire drive up the price of engagement rings, making them inaccessible to lovers on a budget. Even rings that feature diamonds created in a lab can cost thousands.
Our gemstone rings use lovely lab-grown opals in a spectrum of shades, including rich ruby reds, deep emerald greens, and delicate rosy pinks. Instead of choosing between oval, marquise, and round shapes, you can select your partner's favorite color or pick out an engagement ring that matches her eyes.
Opals are soft stones that require special care, which is why we favor a style that pairs opal inlays with strong metal bands. We source our opals sustainably from Japan and use a high-quality sealant to protect them from scratches and wear.

Lovely and Durable Metals
While gold has long been a popular metal for engagement rings and wedding bands, it's notoriously easy to scratch. Women who work with their hands or spend lots of time outdoors often have to remove their gold engagement rings or leave them at home. Otherwise, they risk the ring picking up scratches or losing its shape.
Many women only wear their engagement ring for the brief span between the proposal and the wedding. It's a shame for such a remarkable piece of jewelry to spend more time in a box than on its owner's finger.
We believe in creating gorgeous engagement rings that stand up to everyday wear. Our unique ring design incorporates yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold elements in a way that preserves their integrity. Our gold rings are reinforced with stronger metals like tungsten carbide to increase their longevity and durability.
Price is another factor that makes gold rings and jewelry inaccessible to many people. By limiting the gold in our engagement rings to a thin band or plating, we are able to create beautiful styles that evoke the appearance of a classic gold band at an affordable price.
If you love the look of a pure metal band but want something much more durable, check out our gold-plated tungsten carbide womens engagement rings. These stunning and durable bands have a hammered texture for a unique look, and they come in yellow and rose gold styles.
Does your partner favor silver jewelry? Sterling silver is lovely and classic, but it's often mixed with lower-quality metals like nickel to lower its price, which can cause an allergic reaction in some wearers. Shop our luminous tungsten carbide engagement ring collection for silver-hued rings that are hypoallergenic and durable.
Black jewelry is timeless, sophisticated, and goes with everything. Our black engagement rings for women are anything but dour, featuring sparkling meteorite and spellbinding opal for an eye-catching flash that beautifully complements the elegant tungsten carbide band. Choose from a variety of textures for your one-of-a-kind black engagement ring, including hammered, sandblasted, and smooth.
With proper care, our tungsten carbide engagement rings for women are built to last a lifetime. Shop the collection today!
Unique Inlays That Stand the Test of Time
If there's one thing to know about our engagement ring collection, it's that you won't find oval diamonds, marquise emerald settings, or other traditional ring styles in our shop. We prefer to work with materials you won't encounter in the average jewelry store.
Instead of protruding settings and classic stone shapes, our engagement ring styles feature distinctive and exotic materials incorporated seamlessly into the band. This style increases the durability of beautiful yet vulnerable materials like gold. It also allows us to create mesmerizing color and texture combinations you won't find in a traditional engagement ring.
Some of our inlays are delicate and require special care. We have specialized care instructions for each engagement ring style and material, including information about the sealing process that protects our opal, bone, and wood rings.
Note that a few of our styles, such as our dinosaur bone and antler rings, are currently only offered in men's sizes. If your partner is of diminutive stature, shop our collection of opal, abalone, meteorite, and reclaimed wood engagement rings sized for smaller fingers.

Just like the fossils you'll see in a museum, our dinosaur bone engagement rings are made of a collection of minerals that filled in the gaps as these colossal megafauna slowly broke down over time. The fossils we incorporate in our rings are over 150 million years old and are all ethically and legally sourced from the Four Corners region of the United States.

Reclaimed and Sustainably Harvested Wood
Natural wood has a deep, rich glow that can't be replicated by any other material. Thanks to our specialized treatment process, our wood engagement rings can withstand everyday wear and retain their luminous hue for decades.
While we incorporate many different types of wood to achieve our eye-catching designs, we never chop down trees or purchase wood from suppliers who practice unsustainable and unethical deforestation. We harvest most of our wood from old buildings and repurposed whiskey barrels, giving each ring its own unique story.
Our wood rings represent a spectrum of shades, including flashy striped zebrawood, gleaming Hawaiian koa, and venerable dark bog oak. Shop our eco-friendly wood engagement rings and celebrate your heart's desire with jewelry sourced from the heart of the forest.
Presenting Your Engagement Ring
Of course, choosing your partner's perfect ring is only part of the proposal equation; you also have to figure out how to give it to her. This is the first time she'll see the engagement ring you've picked out for her, so you want to present the jewelry in a way that really showcases its unique beauty. We recommend an elegant box with a soft cushion that coordinates with your ring's color palette.
Some couples choose to wear matching engagement rings as an additional symbol of their commitment to one another. Should you wish to purchase your own engagement ring along with a ring for your partner, you'll find a wide selection of couples' rings right here in our shop.
No matter what style you choose, we have every confidence that your partner will treasure her one-of-a-kind engagement ring and the legacy its unique materials carry with them.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most popular engagement ring styles for women?
The traditional choice for engagement jewelry is a diamond ring with a gold band. However, alternative ring styles have grown in popularity over the past few decades, with many couples deciding to represent their engagement with coordinating rings made from sustainable materials.
Nowadays, you can find an engagement ring style to suit just about any taste. Our most popular ring styles for women are our hammered tungsten and opal rings with gold and wood settings.
How much traditionally do you spend on an engagement ring?
An engagement ring varies in price depending on its style, settings, and even the shape of its central gemstone. Complicated cuts, shapes, and settings are often more expensive. The average cost of a traditional diamond ring is anywhere from $3,500-5,000.
We've hit on a system that allows us to create extraordinary gemstone and natural-material rings by hand at a much more accessible price. Most of our styles range from $160-300.
What is the cheapest type of engagement ring?
A Ring Pop, maybe? Jokes aside, many couples decide not to incorporate a ring into their engagement at all, and that's a perfectly valid choice. With all the controversy surrounding gold and diamond mines, some people feel uncomfortable supporting the engagement and wedding ring industry as a whole.
We understand this discomfort, and it's partly what inspired us to launch a ring company that's utterly devoted to creating ethical and sustainable ring styles. We wanted to give shoppers an alternative to diamonds and the diamond industry at a price that's much more affordable than the average diamond ring.
What is the average engagement ring size for a woman?
Figuring out their partner's ring size presents a classic conundrum for many would-be proposers. If you want your proposal to have an element of surprise to it, you may wish to avoid having to ask your lover for their size directly. That said, it's important to buy a ring that fits perfectly, especially since many of our unique styles can't be resized.
If you're determined to take a gamble for the sake of mystery, the average ring size for women in the US is between 5 and 7.
Say "Yes" to a One-of-a-Kind Engagement Ring
When you and your partner decide to get married, you make a pact to honor your relationship in everything you do and commit to walking life's path together. You each contribute your background, past experiences, and strengths to the partnership, and you pledge to hold each other up as you continue to learn, grow, and navigate the world as a unit.
Our lovingly crafted rings are designed to commemorate that commitment. Just as marriage combines two different journeys and histories into one shared life, our rings bring together precious and rare materials into one whole creation that is stronger than its individual elements would be alone.
We offer thirty-day returns and exchanges, as well as a one-year limited liability policy that covers manufacturing defects. We are able to ship our rings domestically and internationally.
