Ring guards are bands that are worn both above and below a center ring, in this case an engagement ring.

Most importantly, ring guards add a fashion forward look to your wedding because of the surge in popularity of wearing two wedding bands. In this design, Jabel uses a simple milgrain (aka beaded edge) design to add a vintage touch to the design. The bands are available in 14KT yellow, white, and rose gold, 18KT yellow or white gold, and platinum.
