Abby Sparks Introduces Loaner Ring Program

For those indecisive engagement ring shoppers—or for those who don’t really know what their fiancée-to-be wants, custom jeweler Abby Sparks has announced the Loaner Ring program.

A purchase of the Loaner Ring package includes an Abby Sparks–designed engagement ring to propose with, a ring box, Prosecco and two champagne flutes, a box of champagne gummies, a polishing cloth, and rhinestone confetti. The package also includes information on moving forward with the steps to building a custom engagement ring.

While the ring on loan acts as a placeholder, once the question has been popped, the couple is taken through the design process to create the ideal ring to suit their tastes—upon which the loaner ring is turned in. According to the designer, the program is perfect for surprise proposals without depriving the bride of her dream ring.
