You don’t have to be engaged to wear this ring. You can get it for yourself because you deserve it. If your partner wants to buy it for you, that’s fine too but whatever, it’s 2017, do you. This ring is so pretty that you’ll never want to take it off. You should take it off when you shower though because then you get that oogly wet loop on your skin under where the ring is and your finger gets all wrinkly and clammy. It’s gross.
