Yes, diamonds are a girl’s best friend and fabulous and all that, but when it comes to engagement rings, not everyone wants a piece of jewellery the price of a small house. One of my best friends recently got engaged and she chose her ring for sentiment and because it was a ring perfectly suited to her personality – it was simple and beautiful and didn’t cost the earth. The most eye-catching rings won’t either. Because the fact that it’s expensive (or not) shouldn’t be a deal-breaker when making your choice.
Before you sign up for the usual diamond, why not consider?a coloured stone, something in rose gold, or a ring that’s been handmade?
