We're still talking about these stunning engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings, and bracelets.

Earlier this year, at the Brides Local Magazines cover shoot, this was the most popular ring on the set; it was selected for several cover tries, including the one shown here. Encrusted with rows upon rows of icy diamonds, with a bezel-set Asscher-cut center stone, the circa-1925 platinum ring from Stephen Russell is wonderfully photogenic thanks to, well, its magnitude, first of all, but also because it fuses full-on glitz with clean, modern details. As fate would have it, you can't see the ring in our final cover photo selects (which happens a lot, but that's how it goes), so we're showcasing it here in fond remembrance of its brief moment in the spotlight.
