Wow, wow, wow! Thank you all for the sweet engagement wishes! Jake & I are so grateful for your love and support! I’ve been dying to share all the details with you about my ethical, eco-friendly ring! I knew when we started researching rings that I wanted my ring to represent my values. Engagement rings and wedding bands are a symbol of love, but unfortunately many of them are made through unethical practices, harming humans and the environment. Needless to say, I did my research on ethical engagement rings and MiaDonna definitely takes the cake! I spoke with MiaDonna's fabulous founder Anna-Mieke Anderson, and I am so inspired by their work.
My engagement ring is the Crown Vintage Engagement Ring!I am absolutely in love! The detail is absolutely gorgeous! It is so beautiful, I don’t even have words! You’ll have to see it in person (or in pictures). The Crown Vintage Engagement Ring is crafted with recycled white gold, recycled diamonds on the side of the ring, and a beautiful ethical, lab-grown diamond center stone. Fun fact, lab-grown diamonds are physically, optically and chemically the same as mined diamonds! Not only is my ring ethically crafted & eco-friendly, but it gives back too!!! MiaDonna plants a tree on your behalf for each order placed AND donates a minimum of 5% of profits to the Greener Diamond Foundation which works to restore the lands and lives damaged by the active diamond mining industry. SO MUCH GOOD in this beautiful ring!
How did I decide on this ring? MiaDonna has an incredible Home Try-On Program! I went into a few stores to figure out my ring size and I always felt pressured by the sales people and uncomfortable. That’s why I was so thankful for MiaDonna’s Home Try-On Program! Customers can pick three ring styles to try from the comfort of their own home for up to 6 days. Plus, it’s free! How awesome! This allowed me to try on the rings in the comfort of my own home without pressure from sales people. I wanted a ring that was simple and sophisticated. If you know me, you know I don’t wear too much blingy jewelry. I originally thought I would go with a solitaire, but I saw the Crown Vintage Engagement Ring online and thought the detail was so pretty I’d try it! I got my sample in the mail and fell in love! From a distance this ring looks like a simple engagement ring, but up-close there is so much intricate detail! And I absolutely love it! Such a stunning work of art!
