Where to find the perfect engagement ring in Portland, Oregon.
As someone who has seen quite a few engagement rings on photoshoots, and could potentially be shopping for one himself, I wanted to collect my notes and publish my findings on the local ring scene. If you're looking for more information about diamonds and the more technical aspects, Brides has a great guide.
I’ll keep this guide updated as I check out the stores in person and hopefully find the perfect ring for my partner Jess (let’s keep this a secret, shall we).
An Update: We found our Ring / Jeweler
