Here's why rose gold rings are becoming our OBSESSION

If you've been on the hunt for an engagement ring or wedding bands, you may have noticed how wildly popular custom rose gold rings have become. It's been gaining popularity for some time now and I'm pretty sure they've entered the pantheon of classics. And we couldn't be MORE into it. I decided to do some digging into one of my favorite places to ogle the jewelry goods, our loooongtime jewelry vendor pals, Joseph Jewelry. You can never go wrong when you're online shopping with artisans who custom create designs where you can literally create ANYTHING you can dream up.

Ring shopping 101: what are some fancy, non-round diamonds for your engagement ring?

If you're into a ring with a lovely center stone, then you may be inundated with round ones. Am I right? It's time you were introduced to some alternate, fancy-shaped diamonds. We've gotten the scoop from the amazing ring artisans over at Brilliant Earth to highlight some of their favorite shapes for diamonds like pear, emerald cut, marquise, and oval.

Go down the rabbit hole of raw diamonds, colored gemstones, and stunning rings from Gardens of the Sun

Our jewelry partner, Gardens of the Sun, is my FAVORITE kind of shopping experience in which to lose myself. There are so many kinds of rings, so many gorgeous gemstones, natural diamonds, raw gems, and ethical metals, all forged by hand, often one-of-a-kind, and always intentional in their commitment to the Earth and giving back. I went down a serious rabbit hole and never wanted to come back.

Remember when pear-shaped engagement rings were controversial? They're not anymore…

Remember WAY back in 2001 when Carrie Bradshaw wigged TF out when Aidan planned to propose with a pear-shaped diamond on Sex and the City? The even weirder part was that she balked at yellow gold, which of course is back with a vengeance now. It seems like a very long time ago.

I wanted to see what was going on in the world of the pear and how weird and gorgeous and HUGE they could get. So I went a-hunting. I'm totally going to cheat by including some non-diamonds in here, too. Fight me. Let's shop!
