The Champagne is flowing, pink roses and cupcakes are flying off the shelves, and that horrible "He went to Jared" commercial is inescapable — all certified signs that Cupid and his arrow are close at hand. So, not sure about you, but we think that means it's high time to ogle some knockout gems. Whether you happen to be single, unofficially official, or ready to have your loved one get down on bended knee, we trust that you know a game-changing engagement ring when you see it.
That's why we've picked 18 unique sparklers to inspire all you lovebirds (and jewelry lovers!) out there. Of course, we know that rock size and high price tags don't necessarily equal beauty or marital bliss, so we've rounded up stunning bands for every budget and style. Dainty and delicate, vintage-y glam, and modern eco-friendly options are among the spoils, so no one has an excuse not to start perusing these dreamy rings, stat.
