I spent the better part of 2009 searching for my perfect antique engagement ring, sending daily emails to Jolian that read something like this, “In case you’re looking, I like this one…” Until November of that year, he wasn’t looking by the way. How I didn’t scare him off, I have no idea. Eventually my terrible plan worked and at the end of the year I got the ring I wanted, mainly to make the emails stop I’m sure. All that searching made me a bit of an antique ring shopping expert though. In case any of you are looking for your own antique ring, I thought I’d share my favorite stores to visit and browse online. Happy hunting!
