A gorgeous selection of hand-curated one-of-a-kind Sterling Silver Engagement rings set in Cubic Zirconia, Moissanite or White Topaz.  These gorgeous pieces are ideal for the young progressive couple who are ready for marriage but do not feel held hostage to the metal and stone type of a more traditional engagement ring. 
More frequently, younger couples are getting more creative with their commitment token, deviating from the periodic elemental norms inherit to what society generally believes an engagement ring "should be."  After all, the foundation of any successful marriage is not the engagement or the wedding.  It is one key ingredient––Communication.  And if a couple, at this early stage, can agree on a ring that celebrates their commitment to one another while simultaneously preserving their shared financial goals?  Well that understanding is sheer communication– an ability that represents their ability to compromise, echoing a future of harmonious decision making.  
And this millennial trend is something that CNBC has recognized as well:

  • Two-thirds of younger Americans think an engagement ring should cost less than $2,500.
  • Meanwhile, the average engagement ring in the U.S. costs $5,680.
  • With more young couples paying for their own weddings, they are more likely to reject traditional rules.
    According to Bloomberg:
    New data show younger couples are approaching relationships very differently from baby boomers, who married young, divorced, remarried and so on. Generation X and especially millennials are being pickier about who they marry, tying the knot at older ages when education, careers and finances are on track. The result is a U.S. divorce rate that dropped 18 percent from 2008 to 2016, according to an analysis by University of Maryland sociology professor Philip Cohen.
    Plainly speaking, expecting a big diamond from someone who cannot afford or would rather put that money towards something like a house?  Well that expectation is more of an F.U. than an I.Do.  It's more of a ME than a WE.  

    SO getting creative with your metal and stone type does not dilute your commitment to one another; it shows just how much you "get" each other, how in-line your goals are, and how you are starting as a WE (by not throwing each other in the financial gutter).
