Virginia Proposal

Proposal - So about 4 weeks ago, on a Wednesday, I called my fiancee and asked her if she wanted to go for a motorcycle ride. I picked her up about 7PM and we went for a 30 min ride into the Virginia country amongst horsefarms/mountains/ countryside. We arrived in Barboursville and rode around a vineyard, then pulled up to an old historic church overlooking the vineyard. She at one point commented on how perfect this all was and that if she was a writer she would write about this night. My fiancee Betsy saw that one of the doors to the church was opened and said lets go inside, I followed. As we walked into the church, it had the ""old building"" smell with beautiful stained glass windows and antique pillows on the pews. As we walked forward, she noticed a hand carved wooden jewelry box with two roses on it, and went towards it. She felt the roses and was suprised they were real, she turned to me and said, ""Do you know what this means?"" she continued, ""some widow was here praying for her husband and this is an urn."" I suggested she open it, and she said she''d flip out of ashes came flying out. It took her some time, and I had to help her a bit. In the box was a card from me, explaining how I bought the box 6 years ago in India for her, and have been praying for her since. After she finished the card, I got down on a knee and asked her to marry me, she said yes and was in complete shock (she expected I''d ask her later in NOv/Dec and I picked out the ring without her knowing anything). We went up to the altar and I prayed for us, then we stayed in the church for a little while so my fiancee could stop shaking. Then we rode back to Charlottesville looking at a beautiful sunset with a bright orange and purple sky. She was behind me thinking of how this all happened and crying. We got back to her house and a dozen roses were waiting for her. Then I told her she had 20 minutes to get ready for dinner and we went out to a nice dinner where I answered all her questions. As far as the ring, I got a W-prong setting from whiteflash in platinum, it is beautiful and believe me the pictures do not do it justice, i altered it slightly by making the band a bit smaller as my fiancee has smaller hands (2.7mm thick). I was considering the W-prong vs. vatch x prong and can honestly say that I made the right choice, no question. The diamond was a 1.10 E VS2 diamond from whiteflash as well. Oh, she loves the ring as well. I know it doesn''t work for everyone, but I''ve always wanted to pick out the engagement ring myself, but I also did a bunch of research and knew what I wanted and what I thought would fit with my fiancees personality. Denise, I''m very happy with it to say the least, as is betsy. thanks again for all your help.

Exceeded my expectations: I was a bit skeptical about buying an engagement ring online without seeing it in person but after researching many other customer reviews, I learned what to look for in the purchase and was pretty confident in the product I would receive from Whiteflash. Everything about the experience went very smoothly. Their website selection tool and supplemental details are excellent, their inventory seemed great for what I was looking for, the customer service was top-notch, the wire transfer processed smoothly, and the delivery was prompt and secure. I was surprised to get a phone call from one of their Diamond Specialists after placing the order, but the phone call was very reassuring to discuss the order and cover any remaining questions I might have. Once I received the ring, I was amazed at the quality. I purchased one of the A Cut Above diamonds and its sparkle and brilliance are better than I remember seeing at some local stores for a similar price. All in all, it was a great experience and I would recommend you consider them for your next jewelry purchase.

The ring is outstanding, my fiancée (she said yes :)) keeps it on the finger on every possible occasion. The ring itself draws a lot of positive attention wherever we go and we live in the country of diamonds (Belgium). Professional jewelers keep asking where did we made this ring. I want to thank you all at Whiteflash for making our memorable moment truly out-of-this-world experience!

Worked with Brittany both times and she was very professional, patient, and willing to go above & beyond. They even made a digital mockup of my custom idea within 1 day to help me come to a final decision. Sometimes I feel that I ask too many questions and it's because I like to make an informed decision. Never once did Brittany lose her patience, and she guided me the entire way to a purchase that I can truly be completely satisfied with. When I plan to purchase jewelry again I will definitely be back. The quality is outstanding and beyond what I can find locally in my city. Thank-you again for making our purchase exceptionally smooth and for answering my barrage of questions!! It really meant a lot and I'm very grateful for all your help.
