10 Alternative Engagement Rings For The Unconventional Bride

Engagement rings are so boring. They’re pretty, sure, and sparkly too, and exorbitantly expensive, and every girl dreams of one from Tiffany, and it has three diamonds in it, and this is the shape of the diamond, and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Don’t you want this thing you have to wear on your hand every day forever until death do you part to be fun and unique and cool? I sure do. It’s still probably gonna be expensive, but it should also be awesome, and not in the $200,000 solitaire diamond way. I’m not getting married any time soon — that would be a total Miley move — but I’ve procured 10 of the coolest not-so-traditional engagement rings for the not-so-traditional bride.

Everybody wants to be different. As the King Missile song goes, “I want to be different, just like everybody else wants to be.” And apparently some very noncomformist guys are going to great lengths to make their girlfriends feel like the most different bride-to-be on the block. Check out this $9,000 Lucifer Vir Honestus engagement ring — all twisted rose gold, and statement jewels. It’s apparently the latest thing in engagement ring trends.

Introducing The David Yurman Bridal Collection

Evan Yurman, the jewelry designer behind the much-anticipated David Yurman Bridal Collection, says wedding jewelry should speak to the wearer. And most of the pieces in the bridal collection spoke to me when I stopped by the DY townhouse in Manhattan for a preview. The only problem was that I’m nowhere near accepting a proposal or offering one. But a girl can enjoy diamonds nonetheless… Keep reading »

A Knuckle Sandwich of an Engagement Ring

Well, this is certainly a new interpretation on the old engagement ring tradition. Designer Kate Bauman created a brass knuckle engagement ring, by fusing together four faux-diamond rings and setting them upon an ornamental palm grip.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Has Her Engagement Ring(s) All Picked Out

“Well, I actually have three [engagement rings] because I feel like I’m doing the guy a favor. I feel women are very confusing. We never know what we want and we’re not very good at nailing that down for them. And I feel like I don’t want to be upset if he picks a bad ring, so I feel like having three picked out and saying, ‘Look! Look at this plethora of things you can chose from!’”

– Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has been engaged twice already, is definitely dropping hints that she’s ready for her boyfriend of six months to pop the question. But I’m curious, would you ever pick out your own ring or would you prefer to be surprised? I can see picking out a ring together, but I can’t imagine, like, emailing links to my BF and being all, “Hey babe, here are some diamonds I totally love, just in case you need ideas!” A little presumptuous, no?
