When we decided to focus this week on engagements and proposals, we really wanted to include an indie engagement ring roundup for you guys. (Because shopping for yourself is way more fun when someone else does the dirty work first, amiright? Plus, it’s been entirely too long since we did our last ring roundup.) So we turned to APW’s first-ever wedding graduate and one of the hippest ladies there is, blogger or otherwise, East Side Bride, to help us out. A while back, ESB put together a rad wedding headgear roundup for APW that y’all loved, and spoiler alert: this one doesn’t disappoint either. Plus, as an added bonus there may even be a bauble or two in there that would appeal to those of us who are already married (cough, I’m looking at you tiny heart ring, cough). So…double win. And now I’ll kick it to ESB so she can do her magic.

I don’t know how many of you read East Side Bride, but I post a lot of rings over there. (A LOT.)
I’ve tried to include a bunch of new ones in this roundup, along with, of course, some of my all-time favorites….
TINY (clockwise from top left): Claire Kinder’s Pip Ring at Catbird (14k gold with 2mm turquoise cabochon, $200), Scosha’s Tiny Heart Ring (10kt yellow gold + 1mm diamond, $150), Knottedrush Ring from Bario-Neal (available in silver, gold and platinum, $80–$540)
