A wise queen once bestowed her loyal supporters with the following advice: If you like it, then you should have put a ring on it. This is sage wisdom indeed, however, she was relatively ambiguous here. What, we wonder, is 'it'?
Well, we think there are lots of things in our happy lives that 'it' could be celebrating. Here's our top five reasons as to why if you like it, you should put a ring on it. Check them out!
1. For love
Okay, we're not skirting around the obvious. If you love someone enough to be able to spend your life with them, put a ring on them! Engagement rings are the ultimate symbol that proclaims 'I'm taken.' This reason is simple (despite love being relatively complex) – if you love someone, let them know with a diamond engagement ring.
2. For friendship
When you think about it, friendship is almost stronger than love. Your friends are the people who have been there to keep you sane throughout this crazy life – they've helped sort through it all. As such, they deserve a little recognition for what might be a more serious relationship than even a marriage. As you've been together forever, put an infinity ring on it for friendship.
3. For loyalty
Rings also symbolise commitment to groups or organisations you're involved with. Coming together gives everyone involved a good sense of unity, and has the power to make you feel like you're a part of something bigger than you. Therefore, these types of rings are best when you really personalise them with engravings or custom design.
4. For you
You know, we don't celebrate ourselves enough, but we should! Being smart and confident is just as important as life's other milestones like engagement or marriage. So, set some personal goals for yourself, whether that be trying something new, or getting a promotion at work, then reward yourself.
Let that ring sit on your finger everyday to symbolise your commitment to you. Consider doing this with a birthstone ring, because what's a better reminder of your roots than that?
5. For glamour
