My friend asked me to accompany her to the bridal parlour yesterday to shop for the things that she need for her upcoming wedding. She was trying out some wedding dress when I was flipping a fashion magazines in the waiting room. I saw some alternative engagement ring ideas in an advice column in the magazine. It’s interesting to note that we can actually buy synthetic diamonds and turn them into jewelry. I never knew that such things even exists. The trip to the bridal parlour is certainly an educational one for me.
