His first email told me he had an idea to combine a beautiful pear shaped diamond from his mother’s ring to make an engagement ring for the woman he wanted to marry. Great idea. Could we work the details between phone calls and emails – he being in Regina and I in Winnipeg?
Isn’t technology grand? Sending photos back and forth we designed a beautiful ring and wedding band – a true labour of love.
The ring is held in white gold. The engraved wedding band is the perfect complement.
Concierge service included delivery in Regina at a local Tim Horton’s. She said yes that evening.
So they were going to spend their 19th anniversary in New York. Elegant dinner – he pulled an Oro de Rey box out of their backpack and presented her with the diamond he thought belonged in her wedding ring.
She loved it. We set it in her original ring upon their return. She loves it. He’s smiling. We’re happy.
As high school sweethearts they were inseparable. Lots of time to get to know each others’ characters, likes and dislikes – really seems it was growing up together. Lots of travel through school trips as well as sharing vacations with each others families. University meant they no longer saw each other daily but their hearts continued to grow fonder.
He started planning a year before – even met with me to discuss what kind of engagement ring she might like. But this fall he set it all in motion. We designed this spectacular engagement ring and then he started to set “the romantic event” in motion. You see, their number is 23. First date, special days and events seemed to always fit with “23”.
So on December 23, she followed 23 candles into the room beautifully adorned with 23 dozen red roses, fire blazing both in his heart and the fireplace, soft music playing and … well the rest belongs to their telling.
Of course, she said yes.
