PRODUCT STORY
Jeanne says: "Diamonds are a girl's best friend". Are they really? As a jewelry designer, I'm convinced I'm not the only one left cold by these expensive rocks. I designed a parody on the classic diamond (engagement) ring. A minimalist interpretation that makes you shine with a bit of contemporary 'bling', for those of you that want something different. The contrasting finishes lead your eyes around the powdery matte, oxidized silver shank to the bright polished tip. This ring is a unique take on materialism, a twist on the diamond ring that lasts beyond the next fashion trend.

We love that this design is a parody on classic diamond rings. Would you trade in your diamonds for this Parody Ring?

A 'thumbs up' for leaving out the diamond - they're as common as grains of sand, and uninspiring. The ring is not my style though.

love the style, but wonder about the comfort with the thickness/roundness of the band... Would purchase in a second with the more rounded square bands I've seen on occasion.

Hi Bre, thank you for your feedback. Everyone that has tried the ring agrees it is really comfortable to wear, it doesn't feel 'thick' at all. The whole ring is made of round wire with a 3 mm diameter (approximately 9 gauge or 0.12 inch), so the section stays consistent throughout.

Thank you for your overwhelming support everyone! 20 more hours... If you love my ring and hope it will come to UncommonGoods, please ask your friends, family and colleagues to vote too! Gracie, you can see a photo with the ring on a finger on my website, just scroll down to see here: http://www.jeannemarell.com/product/ring-parody Dana, I do make them in gold too (yellow, white or rose gold). The shank that is oxidized in the silver version is a powdery matte finish (plain gold), the tip polished. The contrast is more subtle, but very elegant and unique!

I think it looks weird. Some would like it. However, I've owned rounded band rings before. They are very uncomfortable for the fingers next to the one wearing the ring.
