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.

What brands make gender neutral engagement rings?

Ceremony

Founded as a gender neutral ring collection, genderless styles are at the core of Ceremony's brand ethos. In fact, you'll notice the word "engagement ring" is missing from their site—and that's intentional. Founders Jess Hannah and Chelsea Nicholson sought to challenge gender norms surrounding engagement rings and wedding bands through a collection representative of modern love, sans labels or prescriptive gender roles.

Brilliant Earth

Ethically-sourced jewelry brand Brilliant Earth is branching out into a new category: size-inclusive rings designed without gender in mind. The Mx Collection consists of a mix of gender neutral engagement rings and wedding bands. The designs offer a range of styles for every to-be-wed, from classic settings with prominent center stones to simple textured metal bands.

Pamela Love

Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Pamela Love is known for symbolic fine jewelry with a modern edge, including iconographic pieces (think: sacred hearts, Italian horns and evil eyes) and reimagined signet rings. After years of creating one-off custom bridal and commitment pieces for clients, Love expanded into weddings with a line of ethical engagement rings and bands called Ceremonial. In the spirit of creating wedding or commitment jewelry for all couples, the Ceremonial collection is both gender neutral and size inclusive. Upon purchase, each ring is custom sized with no additional fee.

Custom Jewelers

It's a little known fact that most jewelers can adjust their made-to-order men's and women's styles to be size inclusive (including the ones in the shoppable section below). So, if you have your heart set on a women's ring that isn't in your size or vice versa, reach out to the jeweler in question and ask to have it made in your size. They may charge you an additional fee, but they can likely accommodate your request. To find jewelers in your area, search our marketplace here.
