We will be the first to admit, while we are not the most traditional of editors (you're welcome!), we are serious suckers for a beautiful ring with meaning. And, along with us, you probably don't ascribe to the old-school ring rituals either—big diamond when you get engaged, platinum band when you get hitched. So, for this new collection of engagement, commitment, and wedding rings, we decided to simply choose styles we loved—bejeweled bands, quartz solitaires, and inverted diamonds that may or may not have been intended for holy matrimony, which is just the way we like it. And starting at just $112, our batch of 20 stunners blows that other myth that you have to spend a bundle in order to make it official. We'll say I Do to that any day!
