The engagement ring: it just might be the most important piece of jewelry you ever own. These days it’s not strictly about the carats and clarity; finding a ring that’s unique to your personality is far more crucial. Whether it’s an offset rock or a rare geode, there are endless options out there.
That’s why we asked Stellene Volandes, the style director of Town & Country and a jewelry expert, to choose the perfect ring for every archetype. “The biggest mistake brides make is abandoning their personal style when choosing their ring — and their dress, for that matter,” she advises. “There are enough rings out there for every type. Don’t settle for just a simple solitaire, unless that is exactly what you want.”
