45 Unique Wedding Bands that Can Stand on Their Own

Engagement ring? What engagement ring?

Statement Rings Graphic

Since the wedding industry basically spends six months of the year trying to sell us on the most expensive engagement rings possible, it doesn’t surprise me that we don’t often talk about the fact that plenty of women don’t end up wearing them every day after the wedding. (Don’t get me started on the societal crap that leads to couples feeling like they need to have a ring for the engagement to be legitimate.) And even for women who do wear their engagement rings, it’s not uncommon for there to be real emotional attachment to that ring you put on your finger the moment you actually got married. So while the industry may treat wedding bands as supporting characters, in reality, they’re often the stars of the show.

The good news is the options for wedding bands are pretty much limitless and exist at every single price point, from about a dollar on up. (You can find thirty of our favorites under $500 right here.) But today, we’re all about the wedding bands that say, “Engagement ring? What engagement ring?” Here are forty-five statement wedding bands that can totally stand their ground in a sea of multi-carat bling.

P.S. For the already-married crowd, I see at least four anniversary bands in there myself (cough ombre eternity band cough). Just sayin’.
