Surprise Proposals and Engagement Rings

Less than 1% of the population gets engaged each year, which makes seeing a surprise proposal in a restaurant or other location so special. And a proposal just isn't complete without the diamond engagement ring. I'll post the popular styles on this Blog on a regular basis. Email me at with your surprise proposals and engagement ring photos and I'll add them. Happy Engagement!

Before You Pop the Question

Thinking about proposing? Before you pop the question, take a few moments to read this:

So, you are sure she’s the one. Whether it’s taken you weeks or years to come to this conclusion, you just know it.

You may have friends who have recently popped the question, or perhaps you are the first of your group to take this step. What you need to know is that the way you propose should be meaningful and something that will make her friends jealous. This doesn’t mean you’ll need to spend lots of money to rent out the big screen at a baseball game. What it will entail is some research so you have an idea of what type of proposal she’d love, and then careful and secretive planning to make it happen.

Top three things to make the proposal special:
1. Be sure it is all about what she loves, and that will have special meaning for both of you. (If she has an annual pass to Disneyland, and she insists on watching the fireworks every single time you go, then propose during the grand finale.)
2. Public or private? If she relishes being the center of attention, then arrange to pop the question on the stage before a concert. (This takes some legwork, but you can contact the singer or band’s manager several weeks out and share your story. Your proposal could mean extra PR for the performer, so if you present it that way they may readily agree.) Or, does she feel most comfortable at home watching rented movies? Then keep the proposal intimate, between just you and her.
3. The Engagement Ring. Listen to her clues, check for magazines that she may have dog-eared, and most of all, take your time to find a ring you know she’ll love almost as much as she loves you. Some women prefer a big diamond in a simple setting, others want a stunning platinum style and don’t mind if the diamond is a half-carat. Be sure you invest in the part she feels is most important, since she is the one who will be wearing the ring, after all.

All you need: A unique proposal. A romantic proposal. A beautiful engagement ring. When your proposal is from the heart she is sure to say "yes."

Happy Engagement!
