Tips + Tools Thursday: RINGing in New Beginnings

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I've loved hearing about all the holiday proposals that happened so far and wanted to reach out to some that may still be in the works...

While I was out running errands earlier, I walked by a couple of higher end collateral lenders (aka pawn shops) and was drawn to their eye catching displays of freshly polished wedding band sets when it occurred to me, do people consider getting their engagement rings from these sort of establishments? It may not be one's initial or even ideal place to make a huge wedding related investment, but we often buy many things used- houses, cars, clothes and don't think twice about it. We love items that are unique, custom, have history... so what difference does it make when it comes to an engagement ring? It may have not worked out for one reason or another with the original owner or maybe they got into a financial bind and really needed the money, but these precious sentiments deserve a new beginning as well! Long after the proposal and the wedding day itself, is reality; making it all work and creating new memories. I wanted to bring this to the attention of those who have had it in your heart to propose, yet may find a lack in finances stopping you from doing so. It's about to be a new year and no better time than the present to 'altar' your thinking! If you aren't superstitious and open to a non-traditional way of obtaining a gorgeous wedding ring while getting the most bang for your buck, consider all the rare gems found at your local pawn shop. No one will ever guess where you got it! 

Cheers to another incredibly blessed year and i'll see you lovebirds in 2013 :)
