The Hunt Is All Part of the Fun
I got lucky on the search for my antique engagement ring – despite being incredibly specific about what I was looking for, we found the perfect ring in the first shop we went into. In fact, it was the first one I tried on. But that's not always the case, and if it takes you a few trips to multiple jewellers to find your perfect ring, consider it all part of the fun. I was really excited about unearthing some precious piece of treasure and was more than ready to hunt all over the place to find the perfect piece that felt like mine. But trust your gut: vintage and antique shopping is not unlike finding the right partner, you know when it's the one.
Top tip: Your engagement is about so much more than the jewellery, so it really doesn't matter if you don't find one for months (or even years) after you get engaged. The most important thing isn't that you find the perfect ring, it's that you find the perfect person.
