7 Unique Engagement Rings You’ll Love

Your engagement ring is unlike any other piece of jewelry you’ll own. It will be the single most treasured item in your jewelry collection, and should reflect your own personal style. If classic diamond shapes like oval, pear and emerald cuts are not something you can see yourself rocking (which is perfectly fine), these seven unique engagement rings may be just the chic you seek. Find one you love and visit a jeweler near you to make it yours.

Shoe Game: Comfort & Style

When dressing for your special day, your bridal look is not complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Sure, those sky-high Louboutins might be a stunning match with your gorgeous gown, but let’s face it, wearing towering heels for more than two hours straight can be tough on your toes, not to mention your heels, hips and back. Imagine spending more than six hours in them. For your wedding day, you likely will spend at least that much time on your feet, so it would be wise to choose shoes you can survive the day in. Don’t worry though, you do not, we repeat, DO NOT have to sacrifice style over comfort. You can have both, with these hot designs from top brands, and spend the day walking on air.
