Traditional vs Non-Traditional Engagement Rings
By Tiffany Moore , Thursday, May 05, 2016
Getting engaged is a special and exciting event for all couples. Everything about a proposal will have been meticulously planned with care and attention to detail put into every aspect of it. Choosing an engagement ring that is as unique as the wearer is something that takes a lot of thought. Each bride to be will have her own style, her own taste and her own unique personality, so it goes without saying that her ring should reflect this. The challenge lies in whether you choose to go the traditional route or if your bride-to-be would prefer a more unique and non-traditional ring to wear. We have a generous selection of both styles and it is a very personal choice with many good options.
Traditional Engagement Rings
Tradition plays a large part in choosing the right engagement ring for many couples. Tradition conjures a feeling of a timelessness that will never waver. Traditional rings, usually with a single solitaire diamond, will suit a lady who prefers to make a straight forward statement. She will be elegant, refined and will adore the idea of wearing a classically designed ring that will always be in fashion.
