Divorce Rings - Turning a New Leaf with Bespoke Jewellery

Divorce is undoubtedly a significant life transition, teeming with emotional highs and lows. For many women, navigating through the end of a marriage marks the start of personal rediscovery and empowerment. It's in this spirit of renewal that an intriguing trend has emerged in the form of 'divorce rings'. In this blog post, we'll explore what divorce rings are, why they're gaining popularity, and how bespoke jewellery crafted from recycled diamonds and gemstones can symbolise a fresh beginning.

What are Divorce Rings?

Divorce rings are a relatively new concept in the world of jewellery, designed to mark the end of a marriage and the start of a new chapter in one’s life. Unlike traditional wedding bands that symbolise unity and commitment, divorce rings embody self-love, independence, and the power of transformation.

For women going through a divorce, these rings are not only a form of self-expression but also a celebration of strength and resilience. They can be a personalised piece of bespoke jewellery that reflects individual personality and style, providing a tangible reminder of the wearer's capacity to overcome challenges and emerge stronger.

The Rise of Bespoke Divorce Rings

The rise in demand for divorce rings can be attributed to the change in society’s perception of divorce. Today, there's a greater acceptance that sometimes relationships end, and with that ending, there is the opportunity for personal growth and a new direction. 


Emily Ratajkowski recently shared her divorce rings on Instagram. Her engagement ring was a toi et moi that she had converted into two separated diamond rings, adding extra diamonds to one of them. 

Bespoke jewellery resonates particularly well with this mindset because it allows for customisation and the integration of personal elements into the design. Women can collaborate with jewellers to repurpose their wedding rings or select recycled diamonds and gemstones to create something that is uniquely theirs, echoing their individual journey and the positive steps they are taking moving forward.

The Significance of Recycled Diamonds and Gemstones

Recycled diamonds and gemstones hold particular symbolism in the creation of divorce rings. They represent the concept of something beautiful emerging from past experiences. These ethically sourced materials also reflect a commitment to sustainability and an eco-conscious approach to starting anew.

Designing Your Divorce Ring

When designing a divorce ring, consider what symbols, stones, or metals resonate most with you. Is there a particular colour that empowers you? Perhaps a precious stone that signifies your birth month or a metal that represents strength and durability, like platinum. An experienced bespoke jewellery designer can help translate those concepts into a tangible piece that aligns with your vision.

A Marker of New Beginnings

There's no right or wrong way to move on from a divorce, but for those who find solace and empowerment in the symbolism of jewellery, a divorce ring can serve as a powerful marker of resilience and hope. It's an emblem of not just an end, but the promise of new possibilities and adventures that lay before you. If it doesn't feel right for you to transform your engagement ring and or wedding ring into a divorce ring another option can be to get a valuation and sell your rings. You can also use this money to create something completely new. After Princess Diana's divorce she started wearing an aquamarine ring in place of her sapphire engagement ring.

Divorce rings, especially when they're bespoke and incorporate recycled diamonds and gemstones, offer a meaningful way to mark the turning point of one’s life story. They are not just a testament to what has passed, but a beacon of what can be. If you're a woman going through a divorce, consider the empowering message a divorce ring could represent for you. Remember, your story is yours to redefine, and your strength is yours to celebrate, perhaps in the form of a beautiful, bespoke ring on your finger.
