If you mention baguettes to the average guy he will probably assume you're referring to lunch, not a particular cut of diamond. It's little wonder then that the world of engagement rings can be daunting. Add to that the retail pressure of browsing in-store and it's enough to put a guy off popping The Question all together.
With that in mind (or, perhaps you and your guy plan to design or shop for The Ring after you've said Yes), we've rounded up the best Instagram accounts to follow for ultimate engagement and wedding ring inspiration. From there you can shop, or get an idea of what you like to design your own.
No traipsing the shops necessary.
