Mixed Metal Wedding Rings

Last week’s gallery of ring stack inspo has multiples of bling on my mind. And while I love (loooove lurve) a gorgeous, highly textured pile of gleaming white metal and diamonds, the eclectic in me got me thinking about mixed metal wedding rings. It just makes sense that a jewelry collection lovingly built and curated over time would have multiple metals.

Are Halo Engagement Rings Tacky?

Are halo engagement rings tacky? To answer this question, we first have to revisit  my post on tacky engagement rings in general. Tacky engagement rings encompass a huge swath of engagement ring styles, sizes, and even specifications… There are engagement ring styles for every bride, and for each of those “perfect fits” there are 5 styles that she’d never deign to wear without gagging. So tacky engagement rings are a matter of opinion, obviously. If we can all agree that tackiness is in the eye of the beholder, why do we seem to keep circling back to the question “are halo engagement rings Read More →
