While watching the new Green Lantern movie, two thoughts kept racing around my head: 1) Ryan Reynolds needs to rescue me sometime and; 2) I want a ring that can create green, solid-light constructs (nerd-to-normal translation: can shoot lasers at people).
Since I don't live within the DC Universe, I thought I'd track down a few emerald engagement rings that would look just as good in brightest day and blackest night. My favorites are below. —Allison Bean
