Alternative engagement rings
So I recently got engaged to my best friend. We went hiking at starved rock with some friends, and in the middle of a trail he got down on one knee and proposed while my friends snapped some adorable pics. My ring is a little different than the classic solitaire engagement ring, and it’s everything I ever wanted. It’s a lab created diamond, the metal is silver, and the design is so perfectly me. It didn’t cost a fortune, the diamond is a real diamond, but ethically made in a lab. I’ve heard some negative things about my ring and rings like mine. That rings should be really expensive, the diamond should be huge, the metal needs to be an expensive one. But that’s just not our style. It’s not that it’s wrong to have a big expensive ring, It’s just wrong for us. So let me see your alternative rings!
