Finding and designing jewellery that reflects and expresses our passion or love for something is beautiful. These types of unique pieces make for memorable gifts and keepsakes, and show our loved ones how well we know them. When it comes to ocean-inspired jewellery, the pool is pretty small – and not to mention can be kind of cringe at times.
If jewellery covered in dolphins or bands shaped like waves isn’t your vibe then we’ve got some stylish inspiration for you. Especially when it comes to sea-inspired engagement rings, we can do so much better than those ocean cliches. So whether you and your special someone are pro surfers, marine biologists, passionate ocean conservationists or ocean lovers like us, there’s jewellery to reflect that.
From bespoke engagement rings, wedding rings, necklaces, custom rings and more, discover ocean-inspired engagement rings (and other jewellery) that reflect a love of the big blue sea.

If rings aren’t your thing or you’re shopping for a gift, we recommend our Whale Tail Pendant collection in collaboration with Sea Shepherd. There is just no way we could create an ocean-inspired jewellery guide without including this super special piece from our collection.
You can purchase this necklace in a range of metals including sterling silver and 9K yellow, white and rose gold. It also comes in 2 different chain lengths.
By purchasing this handmade whale tail you are contributing to the brilliance of the Sea Shepherd organisation with 100% of profits being donated to Sea Shepherd Australia.

Moissanite is a diamond simulant and an incredibly unique stone to have on your engagement ring as each one has unique colouring. The blue and green colours bursting through this halo ring are just beautiful. Just like our classic round halo, the centre stone is accented by a halo of diamonds and we’ve included additional diamonds along the ring band for that extra sparkle.
As well as moissanite, you can customise your Emerald Cut Halo ring from a selection of stones including Black Diamond, Morganite, Grey Moissanite, Partii, Blue or Green Sapphires, Natural Certified White Diamond or Salt & Pepper Diamonds.
Last, but certainly not least, is this elegant 9-carat White Gold Aquamarine Engagement Ring. It wouldn’t be right to leave the aquamarine stone out of our ocean theme guide with its beautiful subtle blue colour that sparkles in the light.
This ready-to-ship engagement ring features an 8mm aquamarine stone surrounded by natural white diamonds forming an attractive 'halo' around the centre stone – which gives it its name. The floating style of the ring also allows you to stack it with a straight wedding band making it versatile and comfortable.
