5 Non-Traditional Engagement Rings

Today’s post is inspired by this hilarious video which replaces the word “engagement ring” with “lunchbox,” and illustrates how proposals might go if the role’s were reversed. While I myself have a soft spot for vintage inspired sparkly rings, and have been know to compliment complete strangers on their perfect princess cuts, I am also a fan of the unique and often much less pricey, alternative engagement rings that have been popping up everywhere from Etsy to local jewelry shops.  Here are five I’ve seen recently that are pretty awesome if your looking for something non-traditional.
