Five Unique Proposal Ideas


If you’re planning to pop the question soon, we have plenty of creative proposal ideas. Think about your future fiancé’s personality and preferences, pick the perfect ring, plan it out, and pop the question!

For the Nature Lover

If your loved one is always up for a hike or a camping trip, propose in the great outdoors! This could be as adventurous as a trip to Yosemite, or as simple as a stroll through a local garden. Whichever outdoor location you choose, your proposal will be made even more meaningful by its natural surroundings. Consider a nature inspired ring, such as our sought-after Willow Diamond Ring.



For the Traditionalist

If your significant other is a fan of time-honored tradition and classic style, propose somewhere meaningful to your history as a couple. Consider bringing her to the location of your first date, or where you first met. If your loved one’s style is elegant and refined, she will adore the Six-Prong Classic Ring. Also consider her preferences on other aspects of the proposal– 61% of women want men to ask their parents’ permission before proposing, and your future fiancé may be among them!

For the City Dweller

Does your significant other adore city lights and beautiful skylines? If so, consider proposing at her favorite landmark or in sight of her favorite view. Popping the question on the top floor of an iconic skyscraper, such as the Empire State Building or the Sears Tower, is a memorable choice. Consider a ring with architectural details, such as our Waverly Diamond Ring.



For the Ocean Lover

If your future fiancé loves the sound of waves and feeling the sand beneath her feet, propose at the beach! This romantic proposal location is ever-popular because it allows seclusion and a stunning backdrop. Consider writing the question in the sand, or on a message in a bottle. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even propose underwater, while SCUBA diving or snorkeling. Just be mindful not to drop the ring! When selecting the ring, consider details that evoke the splendor of the sea, such as the delicate curves of the Chamise Diamond Ring.

For the Showstopper

Does your future fiancé love the spotlight, or have a flair for the dramatic? If so, consider making your proposal a sensational event. She might love a choreographed flash mob with your friends and family, or seeing your names in lights on the marquee of your favorite theater. If you’re sports fans, consider popping the question on the jumbotron at your favorite team’s home game! Choose a ring that is equally as glamorous and full of sparkling details, such as our Riviera Diamond Ring.

Not one step-cut…tisk, tisk…

Clear, beautiful, deep.

I don’t really care…just had to comment. The ring means nothing without integrity and a true sense of who I am. I want no ring unless the giver is honest, faithful and worthy of my gift of “I am…”.

Love your rings but am a bigger fan of your wedding bands. Much prefer a larger wedding band to a larger engagement ring.

It’s not the ring I’m in love with. It’s my Partner… the ring is the promise… to stay faithful. I guess that’s why they cost so much so he sticks around . Hee hee just kidding but some women love shiny things I Love My Partner.

My years ago my mother had an emerald shaped piece of costume jewelry. That is my favorite but does not ever seem to be in style. Will it ever come back in style and if not, why?

The Riviera Diamond Ring is definitely a ‘showstopper’ in and of itself; however, since my hubby and I are both 67 and retired on pensions, a beautiful ring like this can only be admired from afar.
