Happy National Proposal Day!

Many people dream, plan, and anticipate for the big day that will lead them down the altar with their soul mate—but before they say I do, they have to say YES!

In the spring, many couples decide to take the next big step in their budding romance because of National Proposal Day. There is no exact date on record when this special day was first observed, but it was created by Texan John Michael O’Loughlin to dedicate a specific day to encourage marriage proposals.

March 20 was chosen as the special date due to the alleged effects of the Vernal Equinox, or spring awakening, to the human hormones, symbolizing the equal forces between the couple necessary in making a marriage work.

Obviously, the question of marriage is traditionally accompanied with a special engagement ring selected with great care. In honor of National Proposal Day, we rounded up some adorable couples that recently popped the question. We wish them all much happiness and a future of fulfilled dreams!

“I don’t even think I said yes before I kissed him 100x over. I looked behind me only to find his entire family, two photographers, and bystanders all watching us! Not only did Mike propose at the most beautiful place on earth, but also made sure that everybody was there to capture that moment. People only dream of experiencing a moment as beautiful as that, and I can’t believe that I was lucky enough to experience that with the man of my dreams. My fiancé took me above the clouds to ask me to be his wife, and I promise to keep him on cloud 9 for the rest of his life.” (HowHeAsked.com)

“We had a party on the beach with our friends, but I got antsy and wanted to take a stroll. We stopped to look at a house on the beach. I was making comments about it and wondering why Andy wasn’t saying anything. As I turned to address him, there he was on one knee with a ring box. When we got back to our friends, Andy had arranged for champagne to be served.” (TheKnot.com)

 

Cory and Nathan

“He mumbled something about having loved me for three months and that made us both laugh because it had been three years. That broke the shock, and he started again and it was the sweetest. I said yes, of course, and hugged him and after a minute he asked if I wanted to put on the ring. I was so busy processing everything that I had forgotten about it! After the proposal, I realized that everyone had known it was happening and had been taking pictures.” (HowHeAsked.com)

In the middle of our conversation, he asked if he could have a piece of my watermelon and I said “no, get your own”. He said, “well can you grab a me fork from the basket so I can eat the one in my jar”. As I’m opening the basket, I see a gold covered box! I turn around to ask “what is that?!”, but before I know it he’s on one knee asking me ‘will you marry me?’. After 6 years, I said yes!” (HowHeAsked.com)

For those who haven’t prepared for today as “your big day”, a second chance comes during the Autumnal Equinox on September 23.

True Love’s Perfect Embrace

 

 

 

 

DANHHOV_ABBRThe Abbraccio collection is the essence of your true love’s perfect embrace.

Inspired by some of Jack Hovsepian’s favorite old Hollywood films, always ending with the onscreen couple in a loving embrace, this collection is identified by its iconic swirl setting.

Beginning with a single wire, it creates a band that seamlessly transitions into a mounting gracefully hugging the selected center stone – symbolizing the never-ending love of two becoming one.

The Abbraccio collection is handmade in the USA.

The magazine also has editorial to help select the right ring for your finger shape. It was advised that if you have bigger knuckles you should have a ring that has a wider shank and bigger presence so it balances out and doesn’t accentuate the size of your finger and knuckle. A ring from our Couture collection (CE162) was highlighted as an option.
