I think 4 words ‘Will you marry me’ with engagement ring is very special moment to be forgotten. The engagement ring is a symbol of eternal love.
Of course mostly women want nice diamond ring but some of them measure future husband to be’s love based on the price of ring. Personally I believe that It is wrong because love is not based on a price of ring.
Over the years and centuries, royal and celebrities engagement rings are trendsetting. I personally wouldn’t like to ring based on the trend because It is a very special gift from future husband that’s why It should be unique and reflect his taste.
Of course, I love look into old and new engagement rings because I love jewelry like other girls.
I would like to share my favorite iconic rings of all the time.
