The decision on what type of engagement ring to get usually doesn’t come easily. Guys, you’re not alone when it comes to stressing out over this. You want it to reflect the love you share. Her excitement can be like throwing gasoline onto the fire of anticipation; you really want to get this right! You two have already traveled so far together and this is a celebration of the miles behind and the wonderful road ahead. (more…)
We had a visit last week from a wonderful young lady named Kendall, planning her wedding, who needed her turquoise-and-diamond engagement ring re-sized. As the jeweler was congratulating her on the engagement, Kendall unhooked her thumbs from her belt loops to give a gentle squeeze to her fiancé, Brad. “We’re not going to be a YouTube sensation or anything, but that’s not how we roll. It was really perfect.”
The decision to propose isn’t always easy. Sure, there are many out there that know right away they have found their soul mate; they have found that special person who they want to share the rest of their lives with. For every one of those, there are others who have a hard time making the decision not because they do not love the person they are with…but because they are afraid of the actual act of proposing!
Eric made the decision to propose to Angie but was nervous about the ring and whether or not she would like it. There’s always some trepidation when it comes to the engagement ring. Sure, she would more than likely say yes and all would be wonderful, but would she truly love the ring? Eric had been to Goodman’s before and we had worked with him on other jewelry, but this was big. What could we do with a diamond that had been his Grandmother’s that was then handed down to his own Mother? It had to be something special since it was going to the woman of his dreams, but it was still a family heirloom.
We took the diamond and fashioned a personalized ring that shared Eric’s grandmother’s and mother’s special engagement with Angie’s special day. When he proposed to Angie, she couldn’t stop crying… because she didn’t think it was actually happening? Not entirely. The ring was so unique, Angie instantly knew Eric had worked especially hard to make an heirloom her own! The custom made ring could never be duplicated even though it had special memories for Eric’s family. Now, starting their own life together, they would create special memories that would forever be intertwined.
That’s why we are Madison’s Diamond Store! We want to help you create remarkable memories!
