  • Best Places to Propose in Phoenix, Arizona

    ING 18990 00008Phoenix, Arizona has a unique charm to it. It might have something to do with being situated in a valley or in the desert, but the sky seems more vast, and the sunsets are out of this world. If you’ve been searching for a place to propose that manages to combine nature and culture seamlessly, Phoenix might be the place for you. The weather is beautiful almost year round, so consider taking a trip here when you know you’ll be freezing at home. Here are some of the best places to propose in the capital of Arizona:

    1. Hot Air Balloon Ride

    If you’re looking for a proposal idea that’s romantic and intimate, this one is perfect: take a hot air balloon ride. Imagine seeing the valley from high in the sky while you hold your partner close. To make the venture even more romantic, schedule your hot air balloon ride for sunrise or sunset. You can even arrange to have champagne during your flight. After you’re up high and wrapped up in the moment with your sweetheart, pull out one of our solitaire diamond rings and ask her to be your wife.

    2. Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort

    If you’re taking a trip to Phoenix and you’re planning to propose, consider saying at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort. The scenery is breathtaking, so you'll have ample opportunity to propose the way you want to. They also have a spa, so if you're really feeling like pampering your partner, arrange for her to have a spa day and surprise her with it one morning. Then, after a long day of relaxation, you can ask her to marry you on your room's balcony.

    3. Piestewa Peak

    Are you and your girlfriend active outdoors people? If so, consider hiking to the top of Piestewa Peak using the Summit Trail. Pack your own picnic or pick up her favorite meal from her favorite restaurant. Once you reach the top, lay out your picnic blanket and enjoy the view of the city. As always, this option would be the most romantic around sunset, so youplan accordingly. Trailheads are open from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m., but the trail stays open until 11 p.m.

    4. Kai Restaurant

    If you’ve always imagined proposing in a fancy restaurant, a superb choice is Kai Restaurant, which is located within the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort.

  • 4 Sweet Viral Proposal Videos

    ISS 0893 04928Gentlemen, if you need a little inspiration for your upcoming proposal, take a look at some of the most watched proposal videos on the Internet. Ladies, watch these and be prepared to swoon.

    I’ve been searching the internet for the cutest viral proposal videos out there, and I’ve rounded them up for you below. These videos illustrate some of the most elaborate and heartfelt proposals I’ve ever seen. All of them use a different tactic: a movie trailer, a lit up skyscraper, and more. I dare you to not crack a smile while watching these:

    1. Movie Trailer

    Matt told Ginny he had to work on a Saturday and got Ginny’s brother to take her to see a movie. As she’s watching the previews for the movie with her brother, she hears familiar voices and realizes that she’s watching a trailer for her own proposal. This movie trailer proposal incorporates romance, comedy, action, and drama. After Matt approaches the theater in the trailer, the camera moves to real time as he asks Ginny to marry him and presents her with a diamond ring.

    {youtube}pnVAE91E7kM|400|225{/youtube}

    2. Skyscraper

    In this adorable video, Marzo asks his girlfriend, Lisa, to talk to a friend of his on the phone. She says hello and her name, and then the person on the other end hangs up (rude, right?). Then he asks her to look at the building they’re standing in front of, and it starts to light up with his proposal, “Lisa, will you marry me?” It takes a couple of minutes for her to calm down and actually accept his proposal, which is one reason this video is so darn cute.

    {youtube}jyaE2Mw6YuU|400|225{/youtube}

    3. Live Lip-Dub

    It looks like Issac went through a whole lot of trouble to put this live lip-dub proposal together to Bruno Mars’ “Marry You.” It starts with Isaac’s brother telling the girlfriend he wanted to play her a song. The shenanigans start from there. Fun fact: it took more than 60 people to carry out this fun proposal!

    {youtube}5_v7QrIW0zY|400|225{/youtube}

    4. Memes

    Talk about creative-- this guy almost exclusively used memes to propose to his girlfriend. Standing outside of the restaurant she was eating at, he holds up cards and asks her to marry him. After she says yes, he goes into the restaurant with flowers, gets down on one knee, and gives her a real speech.

  • Engagement Proposal Traditions from Around the World

    02G66568When you think of a marriage proposal, what immediately comes to mind? Probably the same things that come to mind for most other Americans.Typical proposals in the US involve getting down on one knee and presenting your sweetheart with a diamond ring, but have you ever thought about what the rest of the world does when proposing marriage? There are a range of different traditions from around the world. Let’s take a look at how our customary approach compares to the engagement proposal traditions from other parts of the world:

    Japan

    After a Japanese couple is engaged, it’s customary for the families of the engaged couple to exchange nine gifts, including a folded fan and kelp. This exchange of gifts typically happens at an elaborate engagement ceremony, which is called the “yuinou.” In Japanese culture, marriage isn’t just about the commitment between two people; it’s also about the connection between two families.

    Spain

    In Spain, a man will present a diamond ring to his love in much the same way an American man would. It’s what comes next that’s a little different. After the proposal, the woman will go and find an engagement wristwatch for her fiance.

    Germany

    In Germany, you’ll find both the man and woman wearing an engagement ring on their left hands. (The practice of a man wearing an engagement ring is not altogether uncommon in America. Learn more about the rising popularity of mangagement rings.)

    Egypt

    After a couple becomes engaged in Egypt, both the man and the woman wear rings on their right hand to signify their engagement. After they’re married, they move the rings to the left hand.

    Pakistan

    In Pakistani culture, the family of the bridegroom proposes to the family of the bride. In very traditional families, it’s possible that the potential bride and groom aren’t involved at all. If the bride’s family accepts the proposal, a party is thrown where the groom-to-be formally proposes to the bride-to-be.

    Kenya

    In some tribes in Kenya, engagement proposal traditions involve a strand of beads. A man will send the beads to the woman he would like to marry. To accept the proposal, the woman simply keeps the beads. If she sends them back, she rejects the proposal.

  • Trio Wedding Ring Sets - Style Review ST505W14K

    trio wedding ring setsWe know how hard it can be to find the perfect match for your engagement ring. You have to find a ring that’s similar in style and that complements but doesn’t outshine the engagement ring. That’s why we try to eliminate this dilemma for you with our selection of trio wedding ring sets.

    These sets come with all three of the rings you need to start your married life together: the engagement ring, the lady’s wedding band, and the man’s wedding band. When you buy one of these sets, you don’t need to worry whether or not your engagement ring will match your wedding ring. We put a lot of thought in the rings we pair together, and we promise you won’t find a better matching set. While all of our sets are spectacular, we want to highlight one trio matching wedding set in particular: style ST505W14K. Here are just a few reasons why this set is truly special:

    1. Styling

    Sometimes a simple, classic ring set is the best way to go. Of course, just because this ring set isn’t ornate doesn’t make it any less stunning. Take a look at the engagement ring for instance. It has a breathtaking solitaire setting, which is beautifully offset by the diamonds surrounding it on the band. The two wedding bands match the band styling of the engagement ring, which pulls the set together. This 1.5 CT trio matching wedding ring set can be made with either 10K or 14K white gold.

    2. Diamonds

    Let’s talk about the best part of any wedding ring: the diamonds! This set has a total of 34 round cut diamonds. There are 11 diamonds in the engagement ring, including the magnificent solitaire. The lady’s wedding band has 13 diamonds, and the man’s band has 10 diamonds. All of the diamonds in our rings are natural and conflict free-- not to mention gorgeous!

    3. Reviews

    Listen to what our customers have said about this ring set:

    “Wow! A girls dream, well some girls. I like the fact the bands match, really love the white gold, the bridal ring is gorgeous, similar looking to the bands, the solitaire is nice, it's not a cluster and I like that, just one single diamond, like my one single love.” - Emmie D.

    “I love this set! Its absolutely beautiful. Not too big, not too small, it's just the right size. The band is awesome too!” - Candice S.

    “This set is my fave!I love that it is sparkly but not too gaudy. Gorgeous yet simple. It's wonderful!” - Emily T.

    “Nicest solitaire ring on the website. I'm not a big fan of cluster diamonds. I prefer a solitaire diamond anytime unless its a fashion ring. These rings are not only elegant but timeless and will be in style for many years to come.” - Jacqueline G.

    “My fiance already bought my engagement ring, but in the process of planning the wedding and trying to pick out wedding bands, we ran into huge problems. No wedding bands match or even look good with my ring! Influenster sent me a brochure for my trio rings and I am in LOVE! This is such a good idea. We are now going to be purchasing this set because it makes everything so much easier and the rings are absolutely gorgeous. My Trio Rings has a set for everyone! I wish I had found this before my original ring was purchased, but better late than never. I would recommend my trio rings to any man getting ready to propose!” - Kimberly L.

  • 3 Creative Ways to Propose This Spring

    creative ways to propose this springI’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: spring is the absolute perfect time to get engaged. It’s the time of year everyone begins to feel freer and happier -- winter is gone and summer is just around the corner. Since the weather is getting warmer, you’re going to actually enjoy being outside just in time for all the vibrant flowers to bloom. Let those blooming flowers symbolize your blossoming relationship and soon-to-be marriage. Want to propose this spring, but not sure how? I’ve rounded up some creative ways to propose for you!

    1. Picnic

    Is there anything that screams spring more than a picnic? As soon as the weather warms up, go in search for the best spot you can find. Check the parks, school campuses, and gardens. You want to find the most picturesque spot possible to get on one knee. For an extra dose of ambiance, choose to have your picnic at a time of day when the birds will be chirping. Cook your sweetheart’s favorite foods beforehand and then surprise her with the picnic idea one weekend. After you two eat, present her with a princess cut engagement ring and ask her to be your wife.

    2. Marathon

    If you and your love are active runners, consider running in a marathon this spring. Or, if you’re not runners, suggest trying to start a daily running and walking routine with your partner so you can both work up to a 5K. You can either sign up for a local marathon or use the marathon as an excuse to go somewhere you’ve both always wanted to visit. If you’re doing a local race, you can have your families at the finish line waiting for you and the proposal. Once you and your partner reach the end, smile and ask her to spend the rest of your life with you!

    3. Easter Egg Hunt

    Easter is coming up soon, and Easter egg hunts present a perfect opportunity for a creative and fun proposal. You’ll have to do some coordinating on your end to pull this off. One idea is to coordinate a family-wide Easter egg hunt and let your family in on the secret. If the eggs you are hiding are fake, put the engagement ring in the fake egg. Instead of actually hiding the egg somewhere, put the ring in your pocket. (After all, we don’t want someone else to find that sparkling princess cut engagement ring!) Then, get far enough away from her to drop it, tell her you found one, and give it to her to open. If you use real eggs, just securely tie the ring to the egg and use the same plan.

    Do you have any creative ways to propose that are ideal for spring?

  • Popular Women’s Engagement Rings for Spring 2014, Part I

    popular engagement ringsWe’re just one week away from spring, which means that the flowers are beginning to bloom and you can almost feel the love in the air. Spring is the absolute perfect time for an engagement - all the gloominess of winter will be soon be gone. The sun will be out, the trees will become green again, and the weather will strike that perfect balance between too hot and too cold.

    Before you start planning a spring proposal, you should make sure you’re up-to-date on the trends for engagement rings this season. You want to rest assured that your fiancee is 200% pleased with the ring you select for her, which is why we’re doing your homework for you. Check out these popular styles for women’s engagement rings this spring.

    Halos

    This trend has been popular for some time now, and we don’t think it will be going away anytime soon. A halo around a solitaire diamond doesn’t just make the center diamond appear larger, it also makes that center diamond sparkle more. If your girlfriend loves a vintage or antique look, this might be the perfect choice. If you think your sweetheart would like a square halo, check out this 3/4 CT. diamond ring, which is one of our more popular engagement rings. Or, if you think she’d prefer a circle halo engagement ring setting, consider this 7/8 CT. diamond ring.

    Square Cluster Ring

    Square cluster engagement rings are another popular trend for this spring. They’re easy to wear and will match any jewelry your partner already owns. This trend also translates to a variety of styles, so you can pick out the one that you think your lady will love the most. For example, if you’re looking for something a little more unique, check out this 1/2 CT. diamond ring that not only incorporates the square cluster head, but also both yellow and white gold. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more simple and elegant, take a look at this 5/8 CT. princess cut engagement ring.

    Unusual Settings

    Here’s another trend to think about: a unique engagement ring setting. Instead of going with something traditional, why not think a little bit outside the box? If you and your fiancee move to the beat of your own drummer, an unusual setting might be the perfect way to symbolize your love and commitment to one another. Here’s one example of this trend for women’s engagement rings: a 7/8 CT. diamond ring that almost resembles a wave in shape. What if your partner could wear her heart on her finger instead of her sleeve? She can with this 1/20 CT. diamond ring.

    What’s your pick among these popular engagement rings? Stay tuned for the second part of this blog post!

  • Best Places to Propose in Rome

    best places to propose in rome If you’re looking to propose in a city with that is full of romance and history, Rome is the place for you to go. What can I possibly say about Rome that hasn’t already been said? It’s truly magnificent-- the history, the ruins, the art, and, oh my goodness, the food. Trust me, you don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate Rome in all of its glory. If you’re a lover of beauty and food, Rome will not let you down. Make a statement by proposing in one of the world’s oldest and most powerful cities. Here are some of the best places to propose in Rome:

    1. Trevi Fountain

    I’m sure you’ve heard of gorgeous Trevi Fountain, but simply hearing about it or seeing a picture doesn’t do the wonder of this spot justice. If you’d like to avoid the crowds, I suggest taking your loved one there at late at night or at dawn. While you’re there, be sure to throw a coin into the fountain. It’s legend that if you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you’re guaranteed to come back to Rome (maybe for your honeymoon!). After throwing the coin in, tell your sweetheart you’d like to come back with her as your wife. Then propose to her with one of our solitaire diamond rings.

    2. Villa Borghese Gardens

    You’ll find the vast Villa Borghese gardens near the Galleria Borghese museum. This area began as a vineyard, and a cardinal started turning it into a park in the 17th century. You’ll have your pick of picturesque spots to pop the question. There are ancient buildings, lakes, and fountains galore. You can take a leisurely stroll through the gardens, rent a bike, or even take a boat out on one of the lakes. If you’ve been looking for a more relaxing, natural spot to propose away from the crowds, this is definitely the place to go.

    3. Aventine Hill

    Looking for a romantic spot with a panoramic view of Rome? Ancient Rome was built on seven hills, and Aventine Hill is one of the most beautiful. This area is a little quieter and will give you breathtaking views of the city. This spot also presents a variety of proposal options. You could plan a dinner picnic and propose as the sun sets over Rome. Or, if you’re looking for something even more special, try to find the secret keyhole that gives you a spectacular view of St. Peter’s Basilica.

    4. Trastevere Neighborhood

    If you’re looking for something a bit less touristy, but still picturesque and romantic, head to the Trastevere neighborhood. You’ll find this neighborhood on the west bank of the Tiber River. Fun fact: it’s name comes from the Latin phrase “trans Tiberim,” which means “beyond the Tiber.” Here, you can find a spot along the river to get down on one knee or you can venture into any of the authentic restaurants. You won’t be disappointed by the food! There are also plenty of romantic alleyways in this Roman neighborhood, which might prove a great spot to ask your sweetheart to marry you.

    Whichever of our best places to propose you choose, make sure you have one of our solitaire diamond rings ready.

    Sometimes a simple, classic ring set is the best way to go. Of course, just because this ring set isn’t ornate doesn’t make it any less stunning. Take a look at the engagement ring for instance. It has a breathtaking solitaire setting, which is beautifully offset by the diamonds surrounding it on the band. The two wedding bands match the band styling of the engagement ring, which pulls the set together. This 1.5 CT trio matching wedding ring set can be made with either 10K or 14K white gold.

    2. Diamonds

    Let’s talk about the best part of any wedding ring: the diamonds! This set has a total of 34 round cut diamonds. There are 11 diamonds in the engagement ring, including the magnificent solitaire. The lady’s wedding band has 13 diamonds, and the man’s band has 10 diamonds. All of the diamonds in our rings are natural and conflict free-- not to mention gorgeous!

    3. Reviews

    Listen to what our customers have said about this ring set:

    “Wow! A girls dream, well some girls. I like the fact the bands match, really love the white gold, the bridal ring is gorgeous, similar looking to the bands, the solitaire is nice, it's not a cluster and I like that, just one single diamond, like my one single love.” - Emmie D.

    “I love this set! Its absolutely beautiful. Not too big, not too small, it's just the right size. The band is awesome too!” - Candice S.

    “This set is my fave!I love that it is sparkly but not too gaudy. Gorgeous yet simple. It's wonderful!” - Emily T.

    “Nicest solitaire ring on the website. I'm not a big fan of cluster diamonds. I prefer a solitaire diamond anytime unless its a fashion ring. These rings are not only elegant but timeless and will be in style for many years to come.” - Jacqueline G.

    “My fiance already bought my engagement ring, but in the process of planning the wedding and trying to pick out wedding bands, we ran into huge problems. No wedding bands match or even look good with my ring! Influenster sent me a brochure for my trio rings and I am in LOVE! This is such a good idea. We are now going to be purchasing this set because it makes everything so much easier and the rings are absolutely gorgeous. My Trio Rings has a set for everyone! I wish I had found this before my original ring was purchased, but better late than never. I would recommend my trio rings to any man getting ready to propose!” - Kimberly L.

  • 3 Creative Ways to Propose This Spring

    creative ways to propose this springI’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: spring is the absolute perfect time to get engaged. It’s the time of year everyone begins to feel freer and happier -- winter is gone and summer is just around the corner. Since the weather is getting warmer, you’re going to actually enjoy being outside just in time for all the vibrant flowers to bloom. Let those blooming flowers symbolize your blossoming relationship and soon-to-be marriage. Want to propose this spring, but not sure how? I’ve rounded up some creative ways to propose for you!

    1. Picnic

    Is there anything that screams spring more than a picnic? As soon as the weather warms up, go in search for the best spot you can find. Check the parks, school campuses, and gardens. You want to find the most picturesque spot possible to get on one knee. For an extra dose of ambiance, choose to have your picnic at a time of day when the birds will be chirping. Cook your sweetheart’s favorite foods beforehand and then surprise her with the picnic idea one weekend. After you two eat, present her with a princess cut engagement ring and ask her to be your wife.

    2. Marathon

    If you and your love are active runners, consider running in a marathon this spring. Or, if you’re not runners, suggest trying to start a daily running and walking routine with your partner so you can both work up to a 5K. You can either sign up for a local marathon or use the marathon as an excuse to go somewhere you’ve both always wanted to visit. If you’re doing a local race, you can have your families at the finish line waiting for you and the proposal. Once you and your partner reach the end, smile and ask her to spend the rest of your life with you!

    3. Easter Egg Hunt

    Easter is coming up soon, and Easter egg hunts present a perfect opportunity for a creative and fun proposal. You’ll have to do some coordinating on your end to pull this off. One idea is to coordinate a family-wide Easter egg hunt and let your family in on the secret. If the eggs you are hiding are fake, put the engagement ring in the fake egg. Instead of actually hiding the egg somewhere, put the ring in your pocket. (After all, we don’t want someone else to find that sparkling princess cut engagement ring!) Then, get far enough away from her to drop it, tell her you found one, and give it to her to open. If you use real eggs, just securely tie the ring to the egg and use the same plan.

    Do you have any creative ways to propose that are ideal for spring?

  • Popular Women’s Engagement Rings for Spring 2014, Part I

    popular engagement ringsWe’re just one week away from spring, which means that the flowers are beginning to bloom and you can almost feel the love in the air. Spring is the absolute perfect time for an engagement - all the gloominess of winter will be soon be gone. The sun will be out, the trees will become green again, and the weather will strike that perfect balance between too hot and too cold.

    Before you start planning a spring proposal, you should make sure you’re up-to-date on the trends for engagement rings this season. You want to rest assured that your fiancee is 200% pleased with the ring you select for her, which is why we’re doing your homework for you. Check out these popular styles for women’s engagement rings this spring.

    Halos

    This trend has been popular for some time now, and we don’t think it will be going away anytime soon. A halo around a solitaire diamond doesn’t just make the center diamond appear larger, it also makes that center diamond sparkle more. If your girlfriend loves a vintage or antique look, this might be the perfect choice. If you think your sweetheart would like a square halo, check out this 3/4 CT. diamond ring, which is one of our more popular engagement rings. Or, if you think she’d prefer a circle halo engagement ring setting, consider this 7/8 CT. diamond ring.

    Square Cluster Ring

    Square cluster engagement rings are another popular trend for this spring. They’re easy to wear and will match any jewelry your partner already owns. This trend also translates to a variety of styles, so you can pick out the one that you think your lady will love the most. For example, if you’re looking for something a little more unique, check out this 1/2 CT. diamond ring that not only incorporates the square cluster head, but also both yellow and white gold. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more simple and elegant, take a look at this 5/8 CT. princess cut engagement ring.

    Unusual Settings

    Here’s another trend to think about: a unique engagement ring setting. Instead of going with something traditional, why not think a little bit outside the box? If you and your fiancee move to the beat of your own drummer, an unusual setting might be the perfect way to symbolize your love and commitment to one another. Here’s one example of this trend for women’s engagement rings: a 7/8 CT. diamond ring that almost resembles a wave in shape. What if your partner could wear her heart on her finger instead of her sleeve? She can with this 1/20 CT. diamond ring.

    What’s your pick among these popular engagement rings? Stay tuned for the second part of this blog post!

  • Best Places to Propose in Rome

    best places to propose in rome If you’re looking to propose in a city with that is full of romance and history, Rome is the place for you to go. What can I possibly say about Rome that hasn’t already been said? It’s truly magnificent-- the history, the ruins, the art, and, oh my goodness, the food. Trust me, you don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate Rome in all of its glory. If you’re a lover of beauty and food, Rome will not let you down. Make a statement by proposing in one of the world’s oldest and most powerful cities. Here are some of the best places to propose in Rome:

    1. Trevi Fountain

    I’m sure you’ve heard of gorgeous Trevi Fountain, but simply hearing about it or seeing a picture doesn’t do the wonder of this spot justice. If you’d like to avoid the crowds, I suggest taking your loved one there at late at night or at dawn. While you’re there, be sure to throw a coin into the fountain. It’s legend that if you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you’re guaranteed to come back to Rome (maybe for your honeymoon!). After throwing the coin in, tell your sweetheart you’d like to come back with her as your wife. Then propose to her with one of our solitaire diamond rings.

    2. Villa Borghese Gardens

    You’ll find the vast Villa Borghese gardens near the Galleria Borghese museum. This area began as a vineyard, and a cardinal started turning it into a park in the 17th century. You’ll have your pick of picturesque spots to pop the question. There are ancient buildings, lakes, and fountains galore. You can take a leisurely stroll through the gardens, rent a bike, or even take a boat out on one of the lakes. If you’ve been looking for a more relaxing, natural spot to propose away from the crowds, this is definitely the place to go.

    3. Aventine Hill

    Looking for a romantic spot with a panoramic view of Rome? Ancient Rome was built on seven hills, and Aventine Hill is one of the most beautiful. This area is a little quieter and will give you breathtaking views of the city. This spot also presents a variety of proposal options. You could plan a dinner picnic and propose as the sun sets over Rome. Or, if you’re looking for something even more special, try to find the secret keyhole that gives you a spectacular view of St. Peter’s Basilica.

    4. Trastevere Neighborhood

    If you’re looking for something a bit less touristy, but still picturesque and romantic, head to the Trastevere neighborhood. You’ll find this neighborhood on the west bank of the Tiber River. Fun fact: it’s name comes from the Latin phrase “trans Tiberim,” which means “beyond the Tiber.” Here, you can find a spot along the river to get down on one knee or you can venture into any of the authentic restaurants. You won’t be disappointed by the food! There are also plenty of romantic alleyways in this Roman neighborhood, which might prove a great spot to ask your sweetheart to marry you.

    Whichever of our best places to propose you choose, make sure you have one of our solitaire diamond rings ready.
