The Bling Ring: Princess, Cushion, Baguette

Engagement season is fast approaching: More proposals occur between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than the rest of the year combined (really—check the data). Anticipating all those “he asked and I said yes!” Instagrams, we admire the unique piece that perfectly encompasses the personality of the wearer. These jewelers and jewelry lovers celebrate the shift from the traditional. Now the only thing to worry about: actually popping the question.

@themaniamania

Punk rock brides will gravitate toward the earthy tones and inventive settings featured on ManiaMania’s feed. The brand, based in Sydney, Australia, draws inspiration from energies and themes that also serve as the names for its pieces, including The Universe ring and The Ritual solitaire.

@blancamonrosgomez

Blanca Monrós Gómez takes her design cues from the sea. Pearls tucked into yellow-gold, shell-like settings create elegant, minimal statement pieces, while clusters of diamonds on stacked rings look like handfuls of sea glass plucked from along the shoreline by a barefoot bride.

@thecaratclub

The Carat Club gallery features opulent takes on classic icy baubles (the name has “carat” in there for a reason…). Why we love the OTT images? There’s bafflingly little advice out there about what type of ring a woman might like, or if you’re said woman, about what you might like for, you know, the rest of your life. One way to play it safe: Go big, and you can always reset or resell.
