This hand-forged ring has been oxidized, so the silver appears black. It’s one of the more striking rings we’ve seen—the dark metal really makes that blue opal pop. And if you get unwanted male attention, just tell the guy that the silver turned black due to the coldness of your heart.

4. Kissed by a Rose

This one may be plain on the outside, but the inside tells a different story.  The slightly raised surface leaves an imprint, so even when the ring’s off, everyone will still know you’re married.  Get a simple heart or “HANDS OFF, HE’S MARRIED” has a nice ring to it. 

11. For those with rich taste…

This Cartier ring is more of an art piece than an engagement ring.  Wear it, and your finger will look like a million bucks.  It’ll cost almost that much too. 

At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter what ring you choose.  Who needs jewelry when you’ve got true love?  But if you’ve got to have some bling, you can’t go wrong with one of these intriguing bands.
