So Engaging

Sapphires of the Season

There’s really no bad time for anyone to get engaged—or married—but there’s something about the autumn that will likely bring out the romance in some of your customers. With its sweater-perfect weather and picturesque foliage, all that’s missing from the perfect fall proposal or wedding is the jewelry—but that’s where you, retailer, come in. You’ve got options: From the fabulously refreshed look of marquise and oval shape-stones to “alternatives” like colored gemstones and diamonds, there is an endless array of beautiful engagement rings and wedding bands on the market—the hardest part is choosing which to stock. Here are some of the latest to get you started.
