Um, You Can Now Test-Drive Engagement Rings
Take that baby out for a spin
Imagine you were given an unlimited amount of money to spend on a single item. Rad, right? There’s a catch: You can spend as much as you want, but you have to wear that item every day for the rest of your life.
Makes that Saint Laurent cape dress just a hair less appealing.
Well, that’s kinda what it’s like choosing an engagement ring. For better or worse, you’re stuck with it. And who wants to stare at a piece of jewelry you don’t love day in and day out?
Not the fine people at Amoro, a company that’s trying to turn the ring-buying experience into one that’s more like buying a car than an accessory.
Its “Try Before You Buy” option lets you test-drive a custom engagement rings for up to five days before deciding it’s the one.
After custom-designing a ring, you'll receive a replica of it (involving non-precious metal and "diamond imitations"...whatever that is). Wear it around for five days, at which point you can either return it for a full refund on your $50 deposit or keep it, ya know, for fun.
Still waiting on a similar option for puppies (and houses and haircuts and significant others).
