DeBeers recently launched an app that lets you design your own engagement ring and matching eternity band.
Maybe I’m old fashioned, but isn’t the man supposed to drop down on a knee and surprise you with a ring that he picked out?
Just writing that I realize that probably only happens in the movies now. My friend Tony and I were just discussing how his soon-to-be fiancé “finally decided on what she wants.”
Designing the ring yourself is certainly more practical.
I read an article in the NYTimes called “With This Torch, I Thee Weld” about jewelers who work with couples so they actually make each other’s rings with their own two hands. Since then, that fairytale gets played once in a while in my mind.
As I always say, to each her own happily ever after. I certainly think this app has the best interest of you and your prince charming in mind.Tweet this!
