About This Quiz

Choosing an engagement ring is a pretty big step in anyone's life. It's symbolic of your desire to want to be with someone for as long as you both shall live. Accepting that ring and wearing it equally acknowledges the same thing. It's a way for anyone to tell at a glance that you have chosen to bond with another person. But more than that, the ring can say a lot about both of you as individuals, not just a couple. Your taste in jewelry is a very personal thing and can reflect several aspects and traits of your own personality. Do you prefer something bold and ostentatious, or more understated and subdued? Are you flashy and noticeable, or do you stay in the background and observe from afar? Rings are a lot like the people who wear them. In fact, rings can reflect the best qualities in ourselves (and, occasionally, the worst).

What you may not have considered is just how your taste in an engagement ring can reflect your taste in something like, say, the Avengers. Earth's mightiest heroes all reflect those same personality traits that we show in the simple act of designing and wearing a ring. Don't believe it? Take our quiz, design your ring, and we'll pair you up with an Avenger in no time!
