How to put on a ring on it?

Engagement rings are a big business and I didn’t put much thought into mine until  after I got engaged.  This didn’t really give my future husband a chance at creating a unique ring to put on my finger but that doesn’t have to be true for you.

I’ll admit, I don’t envy guys when it comes to picking out something so expensive and so based on personal style.  Classic is generally the route most taken but sometimes that’s can feel “boring”.  Engagement ring trends are often led by who else but our favorite celebrities.  J Lo started the colored diamonds engagement ring trend with her pink diamond engagement ring from Ben Affleck.  Unfortunately for them, just as trends come and go, so did their engagement.

Three stoned rings representing past, present and future were popular for a while, as were uniquely cut heart shaped diamond engagement rings.



The current trend is the vintage / halo engagement ring.  It was most certainly re-inspired by Kate and William’s engagement.


Halo rings quickly gained popularity because they emphasize the center diamond making it look significantly larger and shinier.




Here are a few more that I really like and more importantly, feel will withstand the test of time – that is the ultimate goal right?
