The Boyfriend or Best Friend and I are talking about getting engaged in the next few months and I’m really struggling with what I want. I really like the vintage/antique feel and would really appreciate any recomendations of places to go shopping in Massachusetts.
Also- Boyfriend or Best Friend has a friend who makes jewelry, including engagement rings, and offered to make a custom piece for me if I know what I want. Should we thank him but go our own way so we don’t include friends in the process?

I see that you put Lowell, MA. Not sure how far you would be willing to travel but Romm Jewelers in Brockton (South Shore) is amazing. They custom made my engagement ring and they’re jeweler who custom makes the settings is incredible. Mine was inspired by a Tacori setting and I honestly love it more than the actual Tacori ring. They do carry different design brands including Tacori, Scott Kay, etc. I am giving them a high recommendation!! Good luck!!!

My husband’s friend custom made my ring! I sent him pics of what I wanted, and it turned out PERFECT! If you know what you’d like, i’d go the custom route.
