Picking an engagement or wedding ring can be a daunting decision. And while a simple solitaire diamond is a classic choice, there are many reasons why a different kind of ring might be better for you—activity level, family traditions, personal sense of style, budget, aversion to diamonds and more.  To help you in your search for the perfect ring, here are three totally different kinds rings styles we love!

1. Two-stone rings

If you’re thinking a big diamond would snag on your clothes or feel too conspicuous, but you’re into diamonds, you will love the two-stone ring. Two stones can have a deeper meaning as well—one for your true love, one for your best friend. And it’s a budget-friendly diamond look!

2. Layer rings

I’m loving all the layer rings and criss-cross designs on the market right now. Again a very budget friendly choice, comfortable and gorgeous! These designs from Kay are made to last.

Travel rewards programs are everywhere. Since American Airline’s started their Frequent Flier program in 1981, every travel company (and their brother) has developed a program. So pick your favorite hotel brand, car rental company, airline, and make sure you’re signed up in their programs.

If you haven’t done enough traveling to know which brands you love most,  don’t worry. There are some really rewarding ways to try them out!
