The founders figured there ‘had to be a better way.’

A new platform called Sparkly functions something like Pinterest but is exclusively for engagement ring selfies, Brides reports.INSTORE Sparkly

Sparkly is a social platform exclusively for engagement ring selfies.

Brides-to-be often look through their social feeds for inspiration, but the photos they see don’t typically include details such as cut and carat weight. So even when they see something they like, it can be hard to get the exact look.

On Sparkly, each entry includes all of the details, and they can be filtered according to what you’re looking for. You can search by ring specifications and even hand type. You can then share the photos to get the opinions of those near and dear to you.

And, of course, once you’re engaged, you can share your own engagement ring selfie.

Sparkly’s website explains how the company came about.

“When Apple employee Steven Simon fell in love with his soon to be fiancé, Andrea, he started looking for a ring as special as she was. He wanted to make the proposal a complete surprise — but getting this big moment (and the ring) right ultimately meant that Steve and Andrea ended up seeking out the ring together.”

They figured there “had to be a better way to see what a ring really looks like on a real hand, narrow down the faves, and somehow along the way hint to that special someone what you’d love … all the while keeping the proposal the surprise of the century.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
