Pop The Question with a Rose Gold Engagement Ring This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day brackets the end of engagement season – you’ll recall, per the influx of announcements on your social feeds, that it began around Thanksgiving. And if you’re on #ringwatch, you’re hoping your number is about to be called…and that your boyfriend has something up his sleeve for next week. And wouldn’t it be romantic, and an appropriate ode to the holiday itself, if your engagement ring was just as sweet as Valentine’s Day itself? Yes! It would!

Diamond Shapes by Personality

When it comes to diamond shapes, there may not be many (under a dozen) but the setting is what makes their personality – and yours – shine through.
