Let’s hear this engagement story straight from Jenny.

Gary King, oro de rey, concierge custom design jewellery service, winnipeg jewellerAlmost 3 years later, after getting a cat, house, and a dog we thought it was time to meet with Oro De Rey for an engagement ring consult. I knew I wanted a different experience rather than going to a regular jewelry store. After learning about Oro De Rey’s services I knew it was the right “fit” for Mike and me.

We met with Gary together back in May to start the process. Prior to our meeting, I had shared ring designs with Gary that I liked best – it was all about the Emerald cut for me!

And then the wait game started … I figured the ring would take a while to make but then June passed, and almost July.

News was being delivered from my friends all around me, people announcing their engagements, baby news, new houses… So I was starting to really wonder where my beautiful engagement ring was!

On July 19th we said we were going to have a pool day. (I bought a kiddie pool that I fill up with water and use for the hot days to dip into while sun tanning)

Mike had to work in the morning but when he got home we had a few beers and were just hanging outside in our “pool” with our pup.

We were both standing in the pool just chit chatting about our night plans. We were going to a Neil Young tribute concert (The Young’uns) where a lot of his family I had not met yet were going to be at. So I said to him, “Well it would be nice to wear my new engagement ring to meet your fam!” He said, “Ya? Okay.”

I must have looked shocked, so he got down on one knee in the pool and proposed.”

We’re glad he did!
