It is just the beauty of the stone on her finger, and such simplicity speaks volumes. Solitaire engagement rings are not, though, just a band and a diamond. They can be, but they can be more elaborate as well. There are several options that you might not think about when considering a solitaire. Many have diamond embedded […]

Cluster Engagement Rings: Uniquely yours When you are looking for a very unique, one-of-a-kind engagement ring, and you are also trying to stay within a budget, it may seem like your options are very limited.
