You hear the engagement ring terms being thrown around — cushion-cut, bezel, princess — but do you know what it means? If you choose to get engaged, will you know what you want? There's a surfeit amount of styles to choose from — enough to leave you dizzy — so we're going to test your bling knowledge. When you're done here, be sure to check out our other wedding stories!
When it comes to wedding and engagement rings, most of us here fall on the nontraditional side, but we always leave a little room for the classic at heart. Contrary to popular belief, traditional bling doesn't have to be boring. Let us show you what we mean with our top 10 picks, ranging from a standout Tiffany Bezet yellow diamond ring to a diminutive-yet-chic, slim single-diamond band from Satomi Kawakita. Believe us, to have and to hold never looked so good.
Even if you're single and loving it, there's something alluring about being a bride. That's why we're kicking off wedding season with a month of can't-miss editorial on the best dresses, rings, shoes, and party outfits for a wedding. To kick it off, we're starting at Step 1: the ring. While few women want to resist a big, old-fashioned diamond ring, there are plenty of gorgeous, nontraditional options if you're planning to get engaged and want something different. We combed the market for 15 beautiful, unique rings that, quite frankly, don't require you to plan a wedding around.
