Gender Neutral Diamond Jewellery

Gender neutral rings challenge the outdated notion that certain designs or styles are exclusively meant for one gender. They embrace a more inclusive and progressive mindset, allowing individuals to express their personal style without restrictions. By breaking away from gender stereotypes, these rings promote the idea that beauty and self-expression should be available to everyone, regardless of their gender identity.

Our Ethica Gender Fluid Collection is bold and sleek and carefully considered with the LGBTQ community in mind. The designs are structural and textured containing strong lines and unusual shapes. Whilst being eye-catching and unique they still remain elegant and appealing to people across the gender spectrum. A minimalist approach avoids excessive decoration and focuses on the inherent elegance of the ring itself, which transcends gender norms. 

The jewellery in this collection upholds the Ethica ethos of sustainability by using ethically sourced gemstones including the Ethica Diamond, sustainably grown lab diamonds, and fully recycled gold. Stormy black lab grown diamonds and luminous white Ethica moissanites feature prominently in this collection along with unusual textures and contemporary lines.

Gender neutrality is obviously subjective - everyone is different. That is why our bespoke service is also available to tweak existing designs or create something completely from scratch. When it comes to choosing a gender neutral engagement ring our team of experienced designers can help you choose or design something that's personal and perfect for your partner.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are gender neutral engagement rings?

When we say “gender neutral" engagement ring or wedding ring, we basically mean any engagement ring or wedding band that is gender inclusive, designed without a particular kind of person in mind.

These can be particularly attractive to same-sex couples as well as couples with members who identify outside of the gender binary, though a growing number of cis-heterosexual couples are opting in as well. Gender neutral rings trend toward attractive simplicity, such as a plain band with an inlaid centre stone, that makes for an elegant engagement piece regardless of identity.

Many couples opt for matching gender neutral engagement rings to exchange in celebration of their announcement. The market for male engagement rings has also seen a surge in recent years, with celebrities like Ed Sheeran and Michael Bublé seen sporting pieces to commemorate their soon-to-be-wed status. The trend nods to changing norms around ring exchange and how we think about engagement — not the claiming of a woman, but a mutual acknowledgement and announcement.

What can make an engagement ring gender neutral?

1. Minimalist Design: A minimalist design that focuses on simplicity and clean lines. Avoiding gender-specific symbols or overly ornate details that may create a gendered aesthetic.

2. Neutral Metal Choice: A metal colour that doesn't carry strong gender associations. Silver, white gold, rose gold, platinum, or titanium are all good options. These metals have a versatile and timeless appeal that can be appreciated by anyone.

3. Non-traditional Centre Stone: Alternative gemstones such as the Ethica Diamond or diamond cuts that defy traditional gender norms. For example, a unique coloured gemstone, a geometric or angular diamond cut can add a contemporary and gender neutral touch.

4. Balance and Proportion: A balanced design with proportions that cater to various hand sizes and personal preferences. Avoiding excessively delicate or bulky designs that may lean towards gender-specific stereotypes.

Having said all this, it is a completely subjective topic so there is no right answer.

Who can wear a gender neutral ring?

Anyone can wear a gender neutral engagement ring! 

Gender neutral rings subvert the binary gender stereotypes of femininity and masculinity, but this does not mean they are exclusive to those who identify outside of those binaries. The concept behind gender neutral engagement rings is about re-envisioning engagement not as an ownership of the feminine, but as an acknowledgement of mutual love between individuals. 

These rings are meant to be inclusive and accessible to all individuals, allowing them to express their love and commitment in a way that feels authentic to them. It is not about what gender you identify with or what kind of relationship you are in, although it can be an expression of those things if you want it to be. 

Gender neutral rings are designed so that anyone may wear them, no matter what your style, personality, ring size, or gender. These rings are more focused on an expression of love between you and your partner. 

Why has jewellery so often been associated with femininity?

Jewellery has historically been used in a variety of contexts across countless cultures for people of all genders. They have been symbols of status or beauty, ritual items, signs of love, and for innumerable other uses. It is only relatively recently that we as a culture have viewed jewellery as a symbol of femininity and passivity in romance as the stereotype suggests. 

The reasons for this are ambiguous with many contributing factors. Significantly, advertising schemes such as that starred in by Marilyn Monroe professing “diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ went a long way in concreting gender norms around engagement rings: rings must be feminine, they must contain gemstones, they are a symbol of patriarchal ownership of women. 

Perhaps we should ask not why jewellery has been thought of as feminine, but why we have had such binary gender norms for so long. Gender neutral jewellery is rising in its popularity as a way to escape from previous patriarchal mindsets which have branded jewellery and women as only possibly being passive and feminine. Instead, we are now exploring what it means to identify with gender and romance beyond binary stereotypes starting with gender neutral jewellery such as engagement rings.
