We all like sparkly things; it’s our basic human instinct. When we walk by something that is shining brilliantly and reflecting light in all directions, we stop and stare. Could be sequins, crystals, a disco ball or a diamond – either way, we are transfixed and mesmerized by the bouncing light. The allure of the beautiful bauble we call the “engagement ring” is only natural. Trust me, I waited ten years for mine, I’ve been looking at it every day for over 6 months and it hasn’t gotten old.
Your engagement ring is a symbol of the love that you and your life partner share that also shows off your style and personality as a couple.
