While classic round-cut diamond engagement rings in solitaire settings are stunning—they aren't for everyone. If you're in the market for a more nontraditional sparkler that reflects your boho personal style, we've got you covered. From colorful center stones to ornate vintage-inspired settings, bohemian engagement rings come in a wide variety of styles. The major overarching theme? They're unexpected—and totally chic. Read on for expert tips on what to look for in a boho sparkler—plus editor-approved picks you can add to your cart right now.

What Is a Bohemian Engagement Ring?

"When I think of a boho style engagement ring I think of something gold, not flashy, and with unique details," says Ashley Zhang, jewelry designer at Ashley Zhang Jewelry. "There are a lot of unique details in antique rings such as engravings, floral motifs and enamel. These antique rings often feature unique and one-of-a-kind diamonds." So, the best way to think about a boho engagement ring? Something totally off-the-beaten path that none of your friends have. "It has an unconventional quality to it, for the woman who is wild at heart and dances to the beat of her own drum," describes Jacquie Aiche, jewelry designer at Jacque Aiche. "It can use an alternative gemstone (rather than the classic diamond) or mix shapes and colors." A boho ring typically steers clear from anything traditional, like a round solitaire diamond on a yellow gold band. Instead these sparklers incorporate unique elements that aren't typically seen on engagement rings.

What to Look For in a Bohemian Engagement Ring

"If you are looking for a vintage or antique boho style ring, don't get too caught up on the specs of the center diamond," recommends Zhang. "These rings are old and in true boho style embrace the perfect balance of beautiful meets imperfection and age." Aiche says that the defining characteristic of bohemian engagement rings and wedding rings are their unique nature. "Boho engagement rings can have a very special feeling. Everyone's taste and style is so different. When you find the one you love that is meant for you, you'll know," says Aiche.

Why Choose a Bohemian Engagement Ring?

Off the beaten path is the name of the game when it comes to boho sparklers. "These rings are for the type of person who wants a ring that cannot be found anywhere else. A truly one-of-a-kind find," says Zhang. "If you're looking for something that's less traditional and more playful, the bohemian style would be perfect for you," says Aiche.
