During my engagement ring buying process I was often stressed and felt like I was about to drop many months of savings for something that society (and my girlfriend) told me I had to buy.
Driving store to store looking for rings and listening to the same stale music while being served old coffee was depressing.
I spoke with one jeweler who estimated that 20% of the sale of his rings went to men buying jewels on behalf of their mistresses. This depressed me.
So I cultivated a playlist of songs to get me pumped up to make the purchase and that all shared a theme: buying bling is cool.
If you are dragging your heels while buying an expensive ring and need some pick me up tunes, here is a playlist of songs that should get you fired up. You will get to spend the rest of your life looking at the purchase as it sits on the ring finger of your wife so enjoy these tunes to get you through the craziness of buying a ring.
