When you start your journey to begin ring shopping, you’ll likely have many questions about engagement rings that you’d like to have answered. In fact, you may want second or third opinions. The process of shopping for an engagement ring (and wedding bands) has changed tremendously over the years. Certainly, it has changed almost entirely since the mid-1900s and earlier, but there have even been trend changes even in the past decade. Tradition is one of the items that is no longer strictly followed. That being said, the gentleman is likely not shopping alone anymore, but rather with his bride-to-be.
