Of all the many, many types of selfies, surely the engagement ring selfie (that's #relfie for short) is the most divisive. For every woman who goes misty-eyed cooing over Instagram's tales of love and its two-months'-salary proof, other ladies scroll straight past the rocks to get to the good stuff — like someone's In 'N' Out lunch.
So, to make believers out of even the most Scrooge-hearted, bling-averse folks out there, we rounded up our seven favorite, real-girl engagement tales, as told by Instagram. And, if you're in the market yourself (or just like shiny things), we've got 21 ways to shop these looks, for every budget. Read on, non-believers — let us prove that #relfies go down way better with a side of #hotdoglegs.
