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.

The ring is absolutely beautiful. I love the two-tone aspect of it w/ the gold & platinum prongs. As for the diamond, it's perfect. I opened the package sitting in my car in the Fedex parking lot yesterday in OK City, w/ the bright sunlight shining in, & as soon as I opened the pretty little red & black box, there were flashes & sparkles going all over the place...some actually quite blinding ;-) I am very pleased w/ the ring as a whole, the band is exactly what I imagined, & the diamond is perfect! Thank you & your other team members SO much for making this decision & the subsequent process of selection such a wonderful experience. I think I knew that first day that I walked into Whiteflash, that I would be back there for this very important purchase. Your personally, friendly demeanor, & genuine care & knowledge of the stones always led me back to Whiteflash when I was looking elsewhere...well, & the perfectly-cut diamonds.

Great experience and gorgeous rings! When I started my research, I knew nothing about diamonds and, having seen a lot of poorly cut diamonds, I was afraid to pay a lot and end up with one. Little by little, by surfing on the Internet, I learned about the 4 C's and grading labs. When I discovered Whiteflash's website, I was really impressed by their very detailed part on Education and learned about the AGS Cut Grading system. I was relieved to see that, by selling AGS triple 0 diamonds, Whiteflash was as quality conscious as I was and that by buying through Whiteflash I would have the guarantee to have a great sparkling stone. My diamond consultant, was very professional and answered all my questions very quickly. I was amazed by all the settings available and it took me some time to choose one. When I received my rings, I was amazed by their craftsmanship and by the diamond's brilliance. The whole process (advice, pictures, shipping,..) was very professional and the rings are absolutely awesome. I am sure I will order again and I already recommended you.
