Guest Curator: Right-Hand Rings With The Frisky’s Amelia Parry

Jun 24, 2009

by ameliamagritte handmade and vintage goods

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.

Rockwell ring part III

People will certainly take notice of Macha Karis’ rockless bauble because of its size, as opposed to its flash. Careful! You could put someone’s eye out with this one. By thebeside, $230.

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.
