22 Stunning Gender Neutral Engagement Rings
Gender neutral engagement rings aren't limited to plain bands. From designs dripping in diamonds to more minimalistic styles, the options are endless. Below, we break down what defines a gender neutral engagement ring and what brands make them—plus editor-approved bling you can add to your cart right now.
What is a gender neutral engagement ring?
While gender neutral engagement rings may make you think of simple unisex bands that are neither overtly masculine or feminine, it's actually a more general term that can apply to any engagement ring or wedding band that is available in both men's and women's sizes. Since gender neutral engagement rings are size inclusive, this means the selection of rings available to men, women and non-binary folks is much less limited. The great thing about this? To-be-weds of all walks of life can find a ring that works for their personal style.
Another note about gender neutral engagement rings: Given traditional labels are off the table, so are traditionally gendered wedding ring rules— you can wear your rings whenever and however you want. So, you can wear them before your ceremony as engagement rings (like The Knot's recent cover stars Jonathan Bennett and Jaymes Vaughan), after the celebrations as wedding bands, or you can opt for a traditional wedding set with an engagement ring and a wedding band—gender neutral engagement rings are all about putting your own twist on tradition.
