Though we've known it all along, wide band rings aren't just for the guys. With more and more brides gravitating toward unconventional styles that break out of the traditional bridal jewelry box, wide-band engagement rings (typically defined as any band larger than 2.5mm) are quickly becoming a new favorite. They're big, bold, and offer so much versatility in terms of styling. They're also incredibly durable, which is great if you're an active person or can never remember to take your rings off.

"A wide band engagement ring provides a unique aesthetic," says Leah Silberman, fine jewelry designer and founder of Elle Perahia. "There is a lot you can do in terms of band design with a wide band, such as adding more stones, including pave, engraving, and detailing. Wide bands are also great for stacking, whereas a more standard thin shank can be trickier," she says.

From modern and edgy to unique and antique, read on to discover where to find the most gorgeous wide band engagement ring in your style and budget, plus 20 chic rings to shop right now.
