All things sad and Disney:
The non-feminist lives of the Disney princesses, to date.
After the fairy tale: The Fallen Princesses Project
Disney themed engagement rings, ranging in price from $1200 to $6000.

Well said. The photo of the “fallen princess” in the bar is priceless.
Although I am a little surprised to see a company enter the world of jewelry while the economy is still murky, Disney just may have made what on paper seems like a very smart move. After all, millions of people get married year after year. But will fans of “The Little Mermaid” be willing to spend money on their bridal jewelry during such a tough economic time? With the popularity of the less expensive metals for wedding bands growing, I am not so sure if that generation will be spending much on wedding jewelry in general. Well, maybe the women will, so perhaps Disney has made a good move. Their new jewelry does look very nice.
Then again, I wonder if this decision is because the wedding industry is generally thought of as being recession-proof. Guess time will tell. It may turn out just to be a just be a Goofy situation! I am also interested to see if this brand extension will even work. What does Disney have to do with getting married? Probably nothing.
Probably nothing… unless you’ve always dreamed of being a princess, I guess. Which I suppose is where the Disney wedding gowns also come in.
I don’t actually know how the economy has affected the engagement ring market. I wonder if engagement rings are one of those things (like liquor) that people just find the money for?
