Engaged and Loving it!

Sorry for my recent absence everyone but I’ve recently gotten engaged and have since turned into some crazy invitation, dress obsessed monster! I’ve been researching ways to save money while still having the wedding of my dreams so there will be some absolute gems coming your way! This post however I’ve focused on my engagement ring and where you can buy amazing rings online!

My Fiance and I love a good bargain and ring shopping was no exception! We both decided that we didn’t want to spend a ton of money on the ring as we are wanting to buy a house and the money could be better spent elsewhere.  A few months back I did a post on diamond engagement ring alternatives so I decided to heed my own advice and I settled on a pink sapphire.  Pink sapphires are hard to come by in New Zealand so I decided to take a chance and look online.  Pink sapphires are primarily found in Sri Lanka and I found this wonderful business All Sapphires where I bought my stone from.  They actually have an etsy store Rene Jewelry but they have a lot more gems on their website! I wasn’t such a fan of their settings so I eventually found my setting on etsy (gosh I love etsy!) who do amazingly priced settings! Lord of Gems were also able to customise the setting to fit the stone perfectly and all I had to do was get the stone set when they both arrived.  I absolutely adore my ring but what I love most about it is the fact that we didn’t have to go into debt to purchase it.  If your smart and shop around you don’t have to spend a lot on a fabulous ring and you can always upscale your ring in a few years when you have more to spend!
