Editor's Notes

April 29, 2020:

Provide a lasting remembrance of your big day with one of these sturdy and beautiful wedding rings. Our selection features a wide variety of designs in a range of price points to suit every budget. Many models, like the DazzlingRock Enhancer, are designed to be placed around a solitaire engagement ring to create an elegant, three-band look. Others, like the Diamond Delight 1/4 Carat and the DazzlingRock Stackable, are made with a straight design that’s great for stacking with other rings. The same applies to a couple of new additions to our list, including the Platinum Plain, which fits nicely next to other rings and also looks elegant all by itself. It’s got rounded edges for comfort and is hard enough not to chip or scratch. It comes with an appraisal certificate as well as a 30-day money-back guarantee.

For a simple, straight design, but with a row of sparkling diamonds, look to the newly added Vir Jewelers Pave, which is from a family-owned New York company that’s been around for three generations. It crafts its wares from conflict-free materials and tests each piece for quality. This particular one contains 13 gemstones in a shared-prong setting. We also added in a timeless choice designed for men, the Oxford Ivy Comfort Fit, which measures a generous five millimeters in width and bears an elegant, understated design. It’s made in the United States and is available in your choice of yellow or white gold, with a 14-karat stamp on the interior.

Our list offers several truly unique models, including the Thorsten Quasar, which boasts a colorful blue-green opal inlay that appears different from all angles as the light hits it. It’s sold in six widths and is made of high-strength tungsten carbide. The Edward Mirell Tension Set is for anyone who prefers a colorful gemstone, and it actually features an entire inlay of amethyst with a solitaire purple stone in the center that appears to be suspended in air. If you prefer a handsome, rugged model with bright metal with an inlay of dark colors, look to the PCH Jewelers Deer Antler, no two of which are exactly alike. Its tungsten carbide construction can stand up to a lifetime of heavy wear without problem.
