As you know, it's 2019, and there are a few different ways one can go about obtaining an engagement ring. You can go the OG route and go to a jewelry store, you could order a custom-made one from a jeweler either in person or online, you could pass down a family heirloom (or have it reset), or you could do what more and more people are doing these days and order one online. It may be crazy to think that you could feasibly choose an engagement ring and have it arrive in the mail in a day or two (when you know, you know, right?), but that's the world we live in now.
A few of those sites that make engagement ring shopping very accessible are ones that we shop at all the time: Net-a-Porter, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale's. On any of these sites, one could easily have an engagement ring alongside a pair of jeans in their cart, which blows my mind a bit. Naturally, I had to look at every one of them among the vast engagement ring inventory hiding on each site and choose the best options.
