OK readers, truth time. I have to admit I used to want an engagement ring that was very conventional. Many years ago, yes I was engaged but never married. At the time I was only aware of the conventional traditions, really expensive obscure companies and brand name stores. I'm not very proud of myself looking back on what I believed was important at the time. The ideas are counter to what I show on this site in style, budget and pure intentions. Something that there is truly no cost associated with. A 10 dollars silver ring can mean as much as a 100k ring covered in diamonds.
I had wanted a traditional solitaire prong set ring with a white diamond with a eternity wedding band; very typical and often overpriced depending on where you shop. I had also loved Nessing, whom my older brother had taught me about. He'd been a jewelry student at Savannah College of Art and Design. Nessing at the time was cost wise was out of the question, although Nessing's rings are technically amazing rings.
I still love the combination of simple engagement rings and eternity bands. But, I have since learned of more variations and options of how this is accomplished. Options that can be more unique, special and affordable. So, I started this site to hopefully help others and share the things I find.
