Non traditional engagement rings


As a wedding photographer I see a lot of gorgeous engagement rings and I love photographing that bling! However, not every bride in the world wants a solitaire halo diamond set, and there is nothing wrong with that. Your engagement ring should be a reflection of your personal style, which is why these alternative options are so great!

Panowicz Jewelers provides a variety of high quality diamonds and gemstones in the setting that will make any non-traditional bride jump for joy. Here are just a few of my personal favorites.

If you or someone you know is looking for that perfect engagement ring or wedding set I highly recommend Panowicz Jewelers. Their knowledgeable and kind staff will take very good care of you as they help you design that perfect ring.
