Engagement Season Is Here. Let’s Browse Some Baubles!

Engagement rings, bands and sets. Here we go!

We’ve all heard the statistics about just how many people get engaged over the holidays (it’s around 40% between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day according to Wedding Wire). Heck, you might even remember last year being overwhelmed with the ‘we’re engaged’ social media posts right after Christmas or New Years’.

If you had asked me about holiday engagements last year, I might have just rolled my eyes and called it too cliche (sorry). And then… 2020 happened. I got engaged in the midst of pandemic hell, over the summer, and quickly realized that for all the hardships of this season of life, the joy that has come with calling my partner “fiance” every day is priceless. So now, I’m on team just-do-it!engagement ring graphic

What I learned while Engagement ring shopping

I haven’t said this out loud until now, but.. y’all… it turns out that the process of getting two secret surprise wedding rings right on the first try… just doesn’t always happen. Our ring journey has been a little less storybook than we might have hoped.  We have had to deal with some back and forth on design/style/sturdiness on my first ring, and sizing back and forth on both rings… and now, finally, 6 months after our double engagement, we both have rings on our fingers. I don’t tell you this story to scare you, just to share that if you’re on the hunt for the perfect engagement ring (or wedding band), I have a few words to the wise:

  • Work with a company you have trust in—do your research, read the reviews, trust your gut.
  • Try to really know the ring size you need—be sneaky, enlist a friend or family to help, or whatever you need to do to figure out what size is going to be best.
  • Take deep breaths and stay patient—it will all come together and be oh so magical, swear.

To help you out on your wedding ring hunt journey, we’ve rounded up a whole bunch of our favorite options from around the internet today. Even though I have my dream ring on my finger, that my amazing partner chose for me, it is still endless hours of fun to look at all the baubles out there. So engagement ring, simple band, or wedding sets… we’ve got you covered. (Now… how do I tell my girl that I want like six different wedding bands?)
