Mary-Kate Olsen’s Wedding Band Will Surprise You + 5 Ways to Cop Her Look
Mary-Kate Olsen seems to be settling into married life with her banker boo Olivier Sarkozy quite well post her smartphone-less, uber private wedding featuring bowls and bowls of cigarettes. The newlywed has been spotted around New York City sporting her brand new wedding band… and we have to say, it’s quite a surprising choice.
For her wedding band, Mary-Kate went with a simple gold band. This is definitely unexpected considering her vintage Cartier engagement ring features a 4-carat center diamond, a halo of blue sapphire and diamond petals. Plus, the thing cost $81,000 and was won in an auction at Sotheby’s and she hasn’t worn it since her. Sooooo different from her band, but we love it. The best part about a classic look is that it can never go out of style — and we know Mary-Kate is certainly eternally stylish. Here are five sweet and understated options that can help you cop her style.
1. Catbird’s Classic Hammered Ring ($64): This lovely option is from Brooklyn’s most popular indie jewelry store. Not only will this slim option barely put a dent in your wallet, but the hammered look also sets it apart.
2. TheSlyFox’s 14K Brushed Yellow Gold Ring ($218): This custom made Etsy beauty comes in a super unique brushed finish. It’s also made with recycled 14K gold, which is definitely brag-worthy.
3. Seababe Jewelry’s 18K Rose Gold Band ($371): This pretty Etsy store option’s biggest pro is that it’s super shiny. Plus, rose gold is the metal to beat at the moment — everyone loves this rosy hue! This glistening band will definitely draw compliments.
4. Erica Weiner Chevron 14K Yellow Gold Band ($800): This is the perfect ring for the bride who likes simple but not plain. The chevron print is a total throwback to Art Deco style and it’s also simply stunning.
5. Ken & Dana Grove Hammered Wedding Band ($1050): This funky hand-textured wedding band comes in two different band widths so you can have a matching set with your S.O. This yellow gold statement ring might be unadorned, but it’s definitely got lots of personality.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
