Good news people: There is such a thing as an Engagement Ring Consultant, and that fact might make your engagement ring shopping process a lot easier, and surprisingly cheaper!
Basically, you'd hire an Engagement Ring Consultant for the same reason you hire someone to do your taxes or hire a wedding planner to help plan your wedding. The world of fine jewelry is complicated and nuanced, and their insider knowledge can actually save you money.
Oh, and they have a special deal for our readers…
What do they do?
Lia and Danielle are industry experts that want to help you navigate the creative and financial process of purchasing an engagement ring. The best part is that they don't represent specific jewelers. Instead, they work with a ton of awesome designers — from well-known longtime friends of Offbeat Bride like Brilliant Earth, to the fashion-savvy designers taking over Pinterest, to the smaller designers that are as hard to find as they are awesome.
As Danielle put it: “In a nutshell, Little Bird can ‘get weird' with you. We go places that a jewelry store representative can't go to ensure that our clients select the most badass ring possible for their tastes and preferences.”
How do they do it?
If you're looking (or thinking about looking) for just the right engagement rings or wedding bands, our sponsor Little Bird will learn about you, your goals, your timeline, and your vision to help you identify your preferences and guide you through key decisions. Geeky references? They can help. Eco-conscious diamonds? They can help with that too. Sparkles you can actually afford? Yep. They can leverage their industry savvy and connections to direct you to the best jeweler to fulfill your vision for your ring, and they provide support throughout the purchasing or custom design process.
Bottom line: Much like hiring a wedding planner to plan your wedding, hiring an engagement ring consultant to find your wedding ring can save you time and a chunk of change.
What does it cost?
Little Bird packages range from $75-$600 and include:
- GIA-certified diamond grading experts, helping you understand what is worth paying for and what is hype

Let this quote from Little Bird clear it all up for ya…
We want to nurture your creativity and help you find a ring that honors your uniqueness. We help you translate what you know about your offbeat style into straightforward design elements and match you up with the perfect jeweler or designer — exploring out-of-the-box options and connecting you with obscure designers and secret rock stars of the jewelry industry. We also relish helping you find the perfect alternative gemstone.
We'll give you our unfiltered, honest opinion because we are totally independent. Bring us your most offbeat ideas, and we will make your rings come true. Seriously, nothing is too weird. We once designed a ring based on someone’s power animal.
So gather up your best power animal inspiration, grab the link to your jewelry board on Pinterest, and come at Lia and Danielle with your best engagement ring dreams. Let a Little Bird make your wedding ring dreams a reality!
