Discover Unique Engagement Rings by MDTdesign

When it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring, uniqueness and personal style are key. At MDTdesign, we specialize in crafting bespoke handmade unique engagement rings that stand out from the rest. Here are six unique engagement rings by MDTdesign Melbourne Jewellers to consider, each offering its own distinct charm and elegance.

1. Unique Tension Set Engagement Ring Designs

A tension set engagement ring is a modern and innovative choice.
During the handmade jewellery making process, MDTdesign jewellers instil resilience into the metal through hammering and forging the metal, creating strength and durability and holding the diamond in place by the tension of the metal band, creating a stunning floating diamond effect and displays a breathtaking side view of the diamond. Tension set designs are an extremely intricate technique, only achievable by the most skilled jewellers.

Classic Tension Set

The classic Tension Set is a symmetrical design, often based around a single gemstone that is suspended within the metal band.

Half Split Band Tension Set

For a twist on the classic design, consider the half-split band tension set. The band splits on one side of the stone, adding an element of complexity, asymmetry and visual interest while still maintaining the clean, modern lines of the tension setting.

Split Band Tension Set

The split band tension set takes the split band concept further by dividing the band into two distinct parts on each side of the stone. This design offers a unique and eye-catching look that is sure to impress.

Mokume Gane is a traditional Japanese metalworking technique that creates a wood-grain pattern in the metal. This technique adds a distinctive and artistic touch to engagement rings.
