Not everyone wants perfection. For those prefer a more earthy style, there are many jewelry designers now featuring rough, raw, and rustic diamonds in their designs. Below I’ve picked out some of favorite rustic diamond engagement rings in a range of prices.
Budget Rustic Diamond Engagement Rings
Designer Melissa Joy Manning sets a .75 carat warm brown diamond in an hand forged 18K yellow gold band, in this lovely engagement ring.
This simple, modern ring from designer Yasuko Azuma features a faceted light green 1.10 carat diamond bezel set in a lightly pounded 18 karat yellow gold setting. The diamond just seems to glow and reflect the rich yellow of the gold, doesn’t it?
A large 2.70 carat fancy cognac rough diamond is held in place by claw style prongs in this edgy 14K yellow gold solitaire hand made engagement ring. Also check out their Etsy shop if you are looking for a piece of rough loose diamond for a custom made ring. They have a large selection.
Mid-Range Rustic Diamond Engagement Rings
I love the adorable and super unique lima bean shaped rough diamond slice in this 18K gold engagement ring by designer Melissa Joy Manning. Those brown rutile shapes shooting through it are just amazing.
This gorgeous and elegant ring from Todd Reed is set in 18 karat matte yellow gold. It features a .67 carat rectangular fancy red diamond surrounded by a halo of flush set brilliant cut diamonds in a unique octagonal shaped bezel.
High-End Rustic Diamond Engagement Rings
This diamond engagement ring from Cathy Waterman offers such an interesting contrast between its elegant platinum setting and its center orange rustic diamond. Brilliant cut diamonds are set into the pointed prongs that hold the central diamond in place and all along the band.
Another ring from designer Melissa Joy Manning. This one-of-a-kind rustic diamond engagement ring features an amazing freeform 1.53 carat translucent Australian flat diamond in the prettiest shade of lemon yellow. More yellow diamonds (this time brilliant cut) are set into the 18K yellow gold band.
