You can always catch engaged or married people stealing glances at their rings — not out of vanity, but out of fascination! Today’s trendiest rings go beyond the solitaire center stone, flanking it with side diamonds for an expanded face or adding smaller diamonds around the band for an extra touch of sparkle. The bands themselves are getting major attention, too, sporting intricate engravings and textured finishes to create a unique look. Captivating from every angle, the rings on the following pages feature layers of details that warrant more than just a second look. And, much like your partner, you’ll be discovering new things you love about the beautiful jewelry for the rest of your life.
