Buzzfeed enlisted three couples in a challenge to design their significant other’s dream engagement ring.
In this challenge, half of the participants were tasked to create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring from the Brilliant Earth website that they thought best matched the hints their significant others had dropped, as well as their unique style and taste. After the rings were created, their S.O.’s were challenged to guess which ring was designed for them from a selection of five Brilliant Earth engagement rings; the Reverie Ring, Ballad Diamond Ring, Elodie Ring, Waverly Diamond Ring and Selene Diamond Ring.
What stood out most to the couples was the unique design elements of the rings, with one person noting the “delicate, rose gold” setting of the Selene Diamond Ring and that the ring “feels really personalized.” Other couples commented on the intricacy of the diamond detailing in the gallery of the Waverly Diamond Ring.
After being told that the rings were made from ethically sourced materials, one participant said, “Every time you look at it you can feel comfortable about it and feel good about the decision.” We couldn’t agree more!
