This Jewelry Brand Lets You Test Out Your Wedding Ring
Picking out an engagement ring is a pretty big deal and maybe (hopefully) a lifelong commitment. We can hardly decide what we’re going to have for lunch today, so selecting one piece of jewelry you’ll wear the rest of your life definitely seems like a daunting task. So, it’s a good thing that fine jewelry brand Amoro is making part of that decision-making process a little bit easier.
Following the Warby Parker business model that’s becoming increasingly popular, Amoro is encouraging customers to try before they buy. Here’s how it works: For $50, you can select and customize up to three different wedding rings based on your budget and desired styles. Amoro will then create three replica rings (made with diamond imitations and non-precious metals) that you can rock for up to five days, giving you a better idea of the ring’s diamond size and precious metal proportions. Once your trial period is up, you can either commit to buying the ring, get a refund or test more styles.
While this could definitely be super helpful (and save you some serious buyer’s remorse), the program is currently available for wedding rings only (not engagement rings). The thinner band definitely doesn’t get quite as much attention as its flashy partner, but it’s still a super important element to your ring finger.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
