If you're shopping for a well-made and aesthetically amazing bridal ring, you should definitely look at some that are designed by Italian-based companies. After all, the art of goldsmithing is part of the longstanding history and culture of this western European nation. While you can find many engagement and wedding ring designs with the Made-in-Italy stamp at different prices, luxury is where the Italian brands really shine—and, because of that, most times, they're in 18K gold, but often you can buy them in any of at least the three colors of gold: yellow, white, and rose. Here are 14 designs from ten of today's best Italian ring brands—jewelers
