The vintage feel of the Milgrain-embellished trellis pattern of the band will make your ring stand out from the list. Rose Gold alone is expensive, so an expected price range of $2,000-$5,000 could ease or tease your pocket.
10. Neil Lane Classic Double Tiered Oval Shaped Diamond Platinum Ring
Besides the fact that it is a Neil Lane Classic, engagement rings made of platinum metal are fancier, yet hardwearing compared to white gold.
