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.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
