Diamonds (and a good eyeliner) have always been a girl’s best friend. A great diamond ring is beautiful, elegant and sophisticated – we love them!
Once upon a time, a diamond ring was the ultimate gift, bestowed on a “lucky” woman by the love of her life. That’s great (and diamond-filled gifts are always welcome), but today’s woman doesn’t need a man to buy her jewels or pay her bills (though he’s welcome to take the rubbish out!). If you want to put a ring on it, you’re more than empowered to do it yourself.
Say it loud and say it proud – it’s totally fine to buy your own rings. Here are three great reasons to buy yourself a gorgeous, glittering diamond ring:
1. Rings Aren’t Only For Proposals
Marriage can be wonderful. And empowering. And a beautiful experience. Is it for everyone? No. Is it the only reason to be wearing a ring? No again. Rings sit beautifully in a variety of styles and materials and come in exquisite and delicate designs that really reflect who you are. Remember that when you buy your own ring it’s a piece that won’t carry the weight of a relationship and its memories. Enjoy it forever.
2. You’ve Earned It
You work hard. Whether it’s work, home life, helping your friends and family, a girl needs to know that every second and every drop of effort deserves reward. Many people reward themselves with what they think they should reward themselves with – like a gym membership – when we should also think about gifting ourselves with what we truly want. If you truly want a ring, don’t feel guilty – you deserve it!
3. You aren’t waiting to be told you’re worth it
Is it sad to buy yourself a ring? NO! Many women won’t buy themselves jewellery, even a self-love ring that they adore. That’s because they believe that jewellery shouldn’t be bought for themselves. But buying your own jewellery means you aren’t sitting around waiting for some guy or girl to show you your worth, to be “allowed” a symbol of love – you’re choosing when you’ll get that ring and owning it. Instead of hoping and wishing for a sparkling emerald or glittering ruby ring on your birthday, Christmas, New Year – or your would-be engagement! – you’re taking control and telling the world that you don’t need someone else to give you a ring.
A ring that you’ve chosen yourself and gone out to make yours is your design, your decision, your own piece of timeless beauty to wear and enjoy.
Don’t let other people’s ideas about life hold you back – why are you waiting to make a dream come true?
