14 Engagement Rings That’ll Make You Want To Get Hitched

After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

We all love a good proposal story, and if you’re in your late 20s – like me – there are plenty of them to go around. Whenever someone announces “We’re engaged”, the words “Show us your ring” come out of our mouths quicker than we can think of a more appropriate reaction.

Of course, a big, expensive diamond ring is crucial not necessary to prove one’s love and commitment, but it doesn’t hurt either.

Sorry, guys, we just can’t help it – for some reason we’re drawn to anything sparkly, and we’ve been perfecting the engagement rock hand-flip since we were little girls. So if you want to secure a ‘yes’ (and give us the chance to be the envy of all our friends), invest in one of these to-die-for rings…
