i'm not sure I really understand why people get rings that they keep in a safe..isn't a ring supposed to be worn??

That's cool and really pretty caitlin, I am not much of a snake fan myself but I like that ring a lot.

congrats liya, that's really beautiful

these are all vintage rings that I think are pretty and aren't the traditional engagement ring.

Early engagement and wedding rings were made out of anything from leather to fabric. The significance of the ring was so great people would even use curtain rings long ago b/c they could not afford to have a real one. Once the ceremony was over, it would go back on the curtain rod.

My engagement ring is by Varna. I love the uniqueness of the rings. All I can say is try on as many rings as you can. What you end up with may not be the ring you thought you would like.

Mine is platnium with a bit of gold, with One large and several small diamonds. It's all hand detailed. No two Varna rings are alike. Similar maybe, but never alike. I like the fact that it is unique. And all the detail is beautiful.

My wedding band is platnium and gold. Very simple, and my husbands is the same. We have a message and date engraved in it.

Aw I totally understand that. Plus wedding rings are expensive, and if you live in a place where crime rates aren't too low... then yeah...

^Holy crap, that first ring is gorgeous! It's jawdropping

Speaking of diamond rings (please nobody take this personally!), is there any way you can confirm that the diamond that you're purchasing wasn't mined in a conflict zone? Diamonds are so beautiful , but I feel so reluctant about purchasing them... I don't think the company's "promise" is enough. I was at this lecture at Berkeley that spoke about how easy it is to cover the traces of the diamond's origin...

^ deBeers has a certification I believe, but ... let's just say the company's history does not lead me to have ultimate faith in them.

A couple options I'm aware of ... Canadian diamonds, and champagne diamonds, which are found only in Australia.

Of course, there's always the option of another stone. I have had thoughts of a South Sea pearl ring ... granted, it's not as tough as diamonds, but I've never had a problem with any of my pearl rings.
