A sleek alternative to the cocktail ring
I love a good cocktail ring as much as the next person—probably more—but there’s something to be said about a sleek band that manages to make just as big a statement. With a generous width and carefully chosen adornment, I would make the agrument that the band ring does double duty. It can look just as eye-catching and is just as worthy of being an “it” accessory as the cocktail ring, but it’s also more manageable for every day, with a smooth surface and low profile that won’t risk getting knocked around or pulled. And, much like the cocktail ring, choices such as these make marvelous options for wedding jewelry, be it the band or in place of an engagement ring. Then of course, the problem would be choosing just one. I don’t know about you, but I want them all!
