Why We Love Selling Engagement Rings

Dec 14, 2009

We love to hear engagement stories and proposal ideas.  It’s what makes our job so gratifying.   Sometimes, we sell a ring and never hear about it again.  Other times, we hear how much our customers love their diamond.

And every once in awhile, we get a story like this:

Hi Ron,

I proposed to my girlfriend on Sunday the 8th, and she said yes without hesitation!  We went out on a mountain bike ride at Patapsco Valley State Park, down near Elkridge.  Took her up to the scenic outlook at Buzzards Rock, and asked her there.  And of course, she loves the ring.

Dan included some pictures he’d taken of the event on flickr. We asked him if we could use them and he said:

You can use them on your Facebook or blog posts, just don’t edit them in any way other than resizing.  Oh, and her name is Christy, just FYI.  Thanks.


So without further ado we present the photos, unedited as Dan asked.

Nice Stone!

Nice Stone!

Let's give them a hand!

Let’s give them a hand!

Congratulations to Dan and Christy!  We wish the best for them and their future marriage!   Please comment and share your proposal story.  Click here to see some more on our facebook diamonds fan page!
