Simple Engagement Rings

Once you have exhausted the concept of unique engagement rings, looking at simple engagement rings is the best next step. Have you ever had an incident where you wanted something special and extraordinary, just to later find out that what you in fact wanted was actually simple and right under your nose? Engagement rings sometimes follow a similar pattern. When you start out your search you are out to find the most exclusive engagement ring in existence, but as the search intensifies and you have tried on a number of engagement rings, sometimes none of them seem to appeal. It is a fact that we are preconditioned to be attracted to certain aesthetic characteristics, be it in engagement rings, nature and everything else. On that note, people often see pictures of the most unique and exclusive engagement rings online, and think that one of them is sure to end up a great fit. In these situations, trying the rings on often leads to disappointment, due to the fact that the rings either do not sit well or end up being “too out there”. Unique engagement rings have been the subject of several previous issues of DT Era, where we cautioned our readers as to their intricacies, warning that unique engagement rings are not for everyone. But if a unique engagement ring is not for you, then what is? To cover this topic we are dedicating this issue of DT Era to simple engagement rings, or engagement rings intentionally designed without additional layers of complexity or sophistication.
