Of course, we need to begin with the Throne itself. If there’s anything more coveted than ruling the Seven Kingdoms, it’s this dramatic necklace. And to be honest, we’d take these 16 round and baguette cut diamonds over 1,000 daggers – but you know, to each their own.
“The Rains of Castamere” pulled off one of the most impressive and terrifying twists on TV with the Red Wedding. For a slightly happier ending, might we suggest this red wedding ring instead? This way, you can tie the knot with vintage glory and none of the gory.
Throwing it back to the very beginning of the series, these snowstorm earrings embrace the House of Stark’s strength and connection to nature. They’re a meaningful gift for someone with Winterfell-worthy loyalty.
White Walkers’ icy blue eyes are haunting in all the ways. Still, there’s undoubtedly something magical about them. This ring echos the mysterious, legendary power of the creatures from the far north without threatening the destruction of all seven kingdoms.
Joffrey may have been a poisonous sociopath, but at least he was a poisonous sociopath with style. Now that we think about it, you may be more worthy of the golden crown than Cersei’s son. Why not give it a try?
Sometimes the best wedding gifts are the ones you didn’t think to put on your registry, like Daenerys’ three dragon eggs. Snap up this necklace with diamonds and red, yellow, and orange gemstones for a look that’s similarly born from the fire.
This ring’s black bark detailing has us missing the legendary warrior Drogo, a feeling Daenerys knows well. Emulate the boldness of the Great Khal – both in battle and in love – with this unique wedding ring.
The ability to choose your face at all times: creepy or convenient? In the case of this reversible ring, we’d say more convenient. Choose whether you’re feeling diamonds or sapphires on any given day, with a Perfect Fit to hold the stones in front.
It’s been a while, but we’ll never forget the way Drogo called Daenerys “Yer Jalan Atthirari Anni” (“Moon of My Life” in Dothraki). Make a grand romantic statement by gifting this ring to someone who is your entire world.
Although arrows don’t make as dangerous a weapon as dragons, this bracelet is just as killer. In rose gold, this one’s a tribute to Ygritte and her red hair. It’s a piece that proves, once and for all: you know nothing, Jon Glow (too soon?).
If there’s anything more obsession-worthy than The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, it’s the mid-century aesthetic that lights up the show. We’ve rounded up these 1950s engagement ring fashions in honor of Maisel’s season 2. *Potential spoilers ahead!*
These 1950s engagement ring styles have us swooning around the Upper West Side, dancing along the Seine River, and dropping some Susie-inspired F bombs (… fabulous. What did you think we meant?).
Mrs. Maisel barely gives us a glimpse of her ring because she moves as quickly as she speaks. From what we can catch, though, her engagement ring from Joel is a yellow gold stunner with side stones. Not a surprise given the costume designers’ keen eye and 1950s engagement ring trends; side stones, especially baguette shape diamonds, were huge at the time.
Female powerhouses in Midge’s era are legendary both for their actions and for their impact on fashion. Take Jackie Kennedy for example, who brought fresh energy to the 1950s engagement ring scene with her emerald engagement ring.
Potentially more sacred than Rose’s pink soap: Midge’s pink wardrobe! If her all-pink ensembles are any hint, we think Mrs. Maisel would plotz over a rose gold ring with a pink sapphire center. Mirror her style by setting a gemstone in one of these vintage rings.
Get your Gatsby glam and sparkly headbands ready: it’s time to try a baguette diamond ring.
Baguette diamond rings are elegant and edgy at once, a perfect encapsulation of the 1920’s Art Deco period during which they became popular. The baguette cut diamonds they feature are step-cut and often rectangular — similar to emerald cut diamonds, but with square corners.
Now, to address the obvious: how are these diamonds connected to the French loaf of bread? As it turns out, the gem may have come first; “baguette” comes from the 17th century French word “bague,” which meant “jewel” and today means “ring.” Alternatively, the diamond cut’s name may have been inspired by the long lines of the French bread. Food for thought.
