  • I absolutely adore anything Martha Stewart!!! With a wedding coming up in Early Spring 2014, this is a twitter party I CAN'T miss. Thanks!!

  • I'm going to need a ring very soon! So no time like the present to learn a little about what I might need and cost!

  • A century ago, most men didn’t wear wedding rings. Fifty years ago, men were mostly limited to wearing plain gold bands, which lacked ostentation and decoration. Today, men have more choice in wedding bands, and more freedom in dress. Some of the rings growing in popularity include mens diamond wedding rings and not just limited to plain gold bands too. It can even be in silver and platinum. While these sparkling stones have been limited to women for centuries, men can now wear them for fashion, and for love.
