Five Engagement Rings Under $1000 From

Even outside of our superpartnership with them, I’ve always held a special fondness in my heart for Partly because they are based in my hometown in Maine (founder Adrianne actually lives just a few miles away from my family), but mostly because they are committed to supporting independent artists, so I always feel really good after I buy something from knowing that my money is going toward artists making a living with their art.

These days, with their awesome selection of hip handcrafted necklaces, is my go-to for things like Mother’s Day Gifts, the graduation present for my sister I really ought to buy since she’s graduating next week, and sometimes for presents I really just want to buy myself (cough Gondola Earrings cough).

But today I want to rewind and take it back to what made me fall in love with to begin with when they first joined APW as sponsors a zillion years ago: indie, artisan, and vintage engagement rings that are beautiful, ethical, and affordable. So today we bring you five engagement rings under $1K from This doesn’t even begin to represent all of the amazing, varied, and equally affordable styles these guys have in their inventory, so I encourage you to hop on over to their site and see for yourself. It’s possible there’s something there for everyone (even me, with my Liberace tastes).

  • The vintage ring! Swoon. I can never get enough of sparkly things.

    Since TurtleLove’s last post here, I’ve regularly gone over to look at their vintage rings. One of them really, really tempted me as the dynamic pricing dropped. And I mean, I specifically asked not to have an engagement ring, but still I’m so tempted! Keeping my eye on that vintage section in case anything along the lines of what I had in mind for a wedding band pops up…

  • I was thisclose to having a moonstone engagement ring and seeing this one makes me want to buy one for myself. I also love the vintage ring.

  • Marina

    Forget engagement ring, I’ve been married almost four years and I’m trying to think of reasons to get the diamond trio. Holy gorgeous, Batman.

  • Yay for Maine businesses (I’m one, too)! I’m totally going to share this with my clients, thank you so much for bringing TLC to my attention. I love promoting great Maine artisans.
