Looking for recommendations to local jewelers

Now that you have talked about marriage with your significant other, it is time to find a suitable ring for your upcoming engagement. While some couples may opt for a surprise engagement ring, shopping for a ring together have a few benefits.

Below I will be sharing a few local favorite jewelers where my proposal couples have found their ring along
