One of the most important things you’ll ever buy is an engagement ring. It’s a piece of jewelry that’ll change the trajectory of your life, welcome in a new chapter, and symbolize the start of forever. So obviously, you should choose your engagement ring wisely.

Here’s the thing about engagement rings—they’re far more crucial than wedding rings. Wedding rings can be swapped for newer or different styles in 10, 20, 50 years; you’ll still be married! But you won’t still be engaged (I hope). This is a one and done ring—no do-overs for the piece of jewelry on your partner’s finger that’ll prompt countless “So how did you pop the question?” prompts. The engagement ring you wear and the engagement ring your partner wears should be perfect—each to your own style, a story of your unique love, a memory you’ll always cherish.

That being said, the world of engagement rings is a scary place. There are a lot of options to consider—what metal do you want for the band? And how thick should it be? Do you want diamonds or gemstones? Does your partner? How many carats? What shape? Should it be a halo ring, or a cathedral one? Ugh. Eternal love is beautiful, but to get to eternity, you have to answer a lot of these questions. It’ll all work out in the end, though—you, your partner, the perfect rings for you both. To get you started, there’s an assortment of the best engagement rings on the market—of all shapes, sizes, and styles—below. Peruse for inspo, or pull the trigger before you pop the question.
