What's with the holiday season? Aside from the avalanche of parties and gifts, the season seem to be "that" time of the year when there seem to be a "flood" of marriage proposals! I personally know of 3 couples who recently got engaged. I even tried on 2 of the diamond engagement rings! Fun! Diamonds are "still" forever! To the right is a one carat diamond engagement ring to drool for. I just love the simple lines of this ring. Does it follow that the recipient of an engagement ring does no get to have a Christmas present from the husband-to-be?
