Amelia McDonell-Parry is the editor of The Frisky, a blog for tha ladies. In particular, she writes all about her love for Ryan Gosling, feminism, “The Bachelorette,” cardigan sweaters, and her experiences with dating. She has a lovely dog named Lucca and is planning a much needed vacation to the Amalfi Coast, where she hopes to ride on the back of a cute boy’s Vespa. Ever since her engagement ended, she’s been on the hunt for right-hand rings that celebrate her singleness — these are some of her picks. Don’t worry, they work for you soon-to-be-betrothed folks too. After all, it is wedding season!
Beyoncé says that if he likes you, he should put a ring on it. For her, this translates into a $5 million diamond, but for the rest of us without Jay-Zs in our lives, there are still tons of gorgeous, original, and affordable options. Single ladies: silver, bronze molds, and spark plugs are your new best friends. All of these babies will fit your right ring finger just as well.
Who says you can’t mix metals? I love the vaguely Art Deco-ness of Jeweler On The Roof’s ring, and the fact that it’s incredibly versatile. $235.
Simple, classic, Tiffany’s-inspired, without the hefty price tag. By Onestonenewyork, $145.
Conveying love or commitment is expressed in all sorts of ways. Beyondtherockz knows knots are the ties that bind. $70.
Wear this AnaNordeste band alone for a dainty look, or layer it with other rings for a funkier style. $170.
Architectural lines make this miavanbeek ring appear more rigid than your average engagement bauble, but if Ayn Rand is your hero, you’ll likely love it. $1350.
How many movies exist where the poor hero proposes to the heroine with a cigar band because he can’t afford anything better? This sterling silver cigar band takes that sentiment up a serious notch. By lovinganvil, $85.
