    28 Engagement Rings To Send To Your Partner “Just In Case”

    You might want to scroll through this with sunglasses on — these rings are seriously dazzling.

    1. An engagement ring and band set you'll pat yourself on the back for buying when you realize you won't have to *also* shop for a wedding band. You're welcome!

    Promising review: "I was waiting a while before I reviewed this ring, to see if the ring would wear off, but to my greatest surprise, this ring is as true as its description. It is still very shiny and solid. The stones are still intact. I still get a lot of compliments on this ring. It's been a year now, and the ring is still as I bought it. I wash my hands with soap, and take a shower with it. Soap hasn't faded it. Go for it, you won't regret it. I love my wedding ring. You don't have to break the bank to wear a beautiful ring." —Missy

    Get it from Amazon for $307+ (available in sizes 4–11 and three styles).

    2. An Art Deco-inspired piece starring a lab-grown emerald and a sunburst of crystals you'd expect to see the likes of a royal family member sporting to a glamorous event.

    You can choose to have the main stone surrounded by real diamonds or cubic zirconia. NyFineJewelry is a small business based in New York that, obviously, sells gorgeous jewelry.

    Promising review: "I am in love with my ring! I am telling everyone I know, who is in search for a ring, to buy from this amazing shop. I had my ring in two weeks, and it has exceeded all expectations! The ring is even more beautiful in person. I have only been wearing it for a day and have received so many compliments! I will be forever grateful that I came across this shop!" —Alyssa Curry

    Get it from NyFineJewelry on Etsy for $442.20+ (available in sizes 3–9, three stone types, and four metals).

    3. A solitaire number featuring cubic zirconia stones no one will be the wiser about — they're sparkly, dazzling, and will certainly do the trick if you're all about the bling but *not* about the earth-shattering price diamonds can be.

    Promising review: "Gorgeous temporary replacement. I lost my engagement ring years ago, but approaching 18 years of marriage, I wanted something classy to go with my band, which really brings it out more in my opinion. Our anniversary is in March, but with the pandemic it feels silly to spend hundreds of dollars on a ring. I highly recommend this ring and, after everything returns to normal, consider the higher price. Love it!" —Kalua Lauber

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 3.5–9.5).

    4. A memorable ring with a dainty band made to look like Princess Diana's (and now Kate Middleton's) engagement ring. Any fan of the Royal Family will looooove showing this sparkler off to their family and friends after you pop the question.

    Promising review: "I love this ring! It’s a lookalike of my engagement ring, but I wear this for work instead, and I still get so many compliments, and I have to tell people it’s from Amazon haha. I shower with it, I wash my hands 1,000 times a day with it, and it hasn’t changed color or changed my skin color! I am really impressed!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes 4–12 and 30 styles).

    5. A delicate band with a twinkling diamond and recycled pure gold you'd likely find next to the definition of "dainty engagement ring" in the dictionary.
