I would say that 90% of girls/women enjoy perusing engagement rings/ wedding dresses. This is not because they want to get married or even indicative of them being unmarried. They just like to look at beautiful things. Women who deny this are not to be believed. *Personal opinion*
Since I am in a less than chipper mood today, I’ve been doing just the above. I adore vintage and antique engagement rings, even a marquis is beautiful to me if it’s from 1920 (and big ;) Click for fun places to look – for less expensive, a good range, Also try http://www.faycullen.com & http://www.langantiques.com
