Just got back from a week long trip to New Mexico to attend my SO’s grandpagrandpa’s funeral. Not exactly an ideal trip based on the circumstances but we did make progress on ring shopping. I’m very non traditional with rings and style and so is he. We both love the 1940s and I love the Celtic knot type of ring. So we’re walking through old town in Albuquerque and I spot a Celtic Jewelry shop right in the middle of town. Of course we go in, they didn’t really have actual engagement rings so we asked about their selection and it turns out they really want to start selling them soon and that all their jewelry comes through an actual Irish company called ShanOre. We told them our dilemma and they said if we decide to go through them that they could do a custom for US and give us a cheaper price and insure it etc all in the price and ship it to us. Needless to say we wanted to skip all the way home because this is the ONLY place we’ve actually found what we’re looking for. I don’t know if my SO will buy from them but now he has an even better idea of a price and what I really like and I’m super excited!
