15 promise rings that make lovin' fun. By Christene Barberich & Valery Joseph

Saying "I do" is so last century, at least in the traditional sense. These days, pledging your love doesn't have to be a formal occasion, and certainly doesn't look a darn thing like mom and dad's wedding album. In lieu of all the pomp and flower arrangements, some people just want to make it official, without all the official stuff that goes along with it.

In honor of making love, not tulle, we've rounded up 15 everyday rings just for her that run the gamut of inspired promise-making—and won't break the bank. A fresh switch from the old solitaire, we love Lena Skadegard's raw-cut Herkimer diamond ring (about $1,300), and the sparkling jumble of crystals and bands by Iosselliani ($275) banishes any obstacles over matching wedding and engagement rings. In fact, simple studded bands by Zoe Chicco (from $110) or Annie Fensterstock ($3,980) keep things simple by pouring the promise all into one ring.

So, whether it's Yes, Definitely Maybe, or let's live together for another 12 years, these rings make bonding a beautiful thing.
