Congratulations to Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian on their Engagement.

The all star U.S. tennis athlete Serena Williams has gotten engaged to long time boyfriend Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. First sharing her story in her Reddit account by posting it in poem form.

“I came home

A little late

Someone had a bag packed for me

And a carriage awaited

Destination: Rome

To escort me to my very own “charming”

Back to where our stars first collided

And now it was full circle

At the same table we first met by chance

This time he made it not by chance

But by choice

Down on one knee

He said 4 words

And I Said yes”

The Perfect Nail Polish to Match Your Wedding Ring

Wedding Season is here! You’re either planning for your future wedding or you’re finalizing the last details for your wedding day. Wearing the right nail polish is as important as wearing the perfect pair of heels. Throughout the day family and friends will be wanting to see and awe at your amazing engagement and wedding ring, so it only makes sense that your nail color compliments your ring. Not only will it make your ring stand out but add a pop of color and give a personal touch to your wedding outfit.

In the olden day’s white nail polish or French nails were the wedding appropriate colors to wear, but those rules have long been changed. From bright colors to dark tones the spectrum of choices for your wedding nails are as endless as your diamond colors.

Four Proposal Ideas to Match the Personality of your Love.

IMG_1799text

Proposing to your love this Valentines Day Month. Here are 4 proposal ideas that might match your partners personality.

Outdoor Love:

Are you both the type of couple that is known as the outdoor exercise junkies? Then what better than a weekend hike. Climb to the top of a mountain or take a trail that leads to a waterfall (Suggestion Havasu Falls in Arizona). For a more exhilarating alternative, what about rock climbing a mountain (be it big or small).

If you are both more into water activities or just want to try something new, then may we suggest stand up paddle boarding. Paddling to the middle of the sea or lake and proposing the depth of your love and the want to be theirs forever. That feeling of it just being you to together in this vast world, would make anyone go weak in the knees.

Be careful when pulling out the ring, don’t drop it.

Romantic Getaway:

Take this opportunity to getaway and give the two of you the much needed vacation you both have been craving. There is usually two ways to go Hot or Cold. Are you looking for a warm place to swim and tan in or a cozy stay at home and snuggle type of getaway.

A snow resort might be a bit chilly but what better way to stay extra close to your sweetheart. Their is something classic and romantic about standing outside and overlooking the gorgeous mountains and crystal covered trees.

What about a private getaway to a sunny and tropical place. Where its all about you two enjoying the sun and viewing the glistening water from your room. Proposing from a tropical place is a an old as time choice, but it doesn’t make it any less romantic. Their is a reason why it is still a top place for proposals.

A Gamer’s Treasure Hunt:

If your partner is a fun loving game person, who enjoys board games and fun outdoor activities…Why not create a treasure hunt for them? It might sound like a lot of work but we will help by giving you tips on how to make it easier on you.

You can include your family members, her family or your friends, to help you create a day filled with clues and hints to take her throughout your home town or a small sized a park (If driving around is not an option). Have them pick her up drive her around to the designated spots, or have each one contain a clue to help her reach you on her own.

If you choose to not include others no problem, why not leave a note at her favorite coffee spot, just give the barista a heads up & ask if they could kindly help you out. (Who would say no to a proposal). Another idea is to have an Uber  or Lyft car pick her up and take her to each spot, you have left a clue. Until you finally meet them at the prepared place. From there on we think you got it covered.

A Private Stay in Proposal:

Looking for a a more private and tender way to propose, without going outside? What about being able to share such a personal moment in the best place ever. At home where you have spent your time together and made fond memories. Fill a room with their favorite flowers (Roses, Tulips,Orchids), their favorite colored balloons, or post up all your most memorable moments captured in pictures around the walls. This might take some espionage tactics, but will be well worth it.

For an extra touch invite your partners close family and friends. Have them hide and wait until she has said yes to finally pop out, and congratulate you both. Nothing like a double surprise!

Or if  you wish to create a special moment just the two of you, so you can really celebrate after.

You don’t have to go over the top when proposing as long as you show your sweetheart you tried and did all this out of the great love you have for them. That should be more than romantic, I mean your proposing, that alone says, “I have met the one that I want to spend the rest of my life”!

How Much to Spend on My Wedding Ring?

The age old question that each young and jubilant couple must ask them selves when tying the big knot is “How much to spend on my partner’s wedding ring?”

It is fair to say that when in love, the emotions and hoopla that is going on around wedding time can sometimes get the best of you and some of you at times may not make the most rational decision in the world when deciding how to budget your money for a wedding ring. I’m here today to give a few pointers about what the best way is to go about purchasing that special ring for your loved one that they will cherish forever and you will not put you in debt forever as well.

The first thing you must come to terms with is what your partner is truly looking for in the ring. Some people do not care about materialistic things in the world and would be happy with the most simple ring ever seen. On the other side of the spectrum however, your partner may feel the need to have an extravagant ring which he or she can show off to their friends and family. You must find a median between these two mind-sets and come to the realization of what your partner is truly looking for in the ring.

Second you must come to terms with where you currently are financially in your life. You are making a huge commitment and your life is about to change for the better so you must plan accordingly for your future. Most people on average spend a little over their monthly salary on their partners ring. Of course these may vary on whether you are currently working or not and how the economy is going, but this is a good estimator about what you can afford to spend. It is very important not to spend more than what you can afford. You do not want to start your new life with your partner in financial pressure and debt because you wanted to go above and beyond what your partner expected.

This is a very exciting and wonderful time in your life and you should enjoy every moment of.  Take a deep breathe and don’t let small things ruin this great experience. Remember, your going to spend the rest of your life with your partner and starting it off and the right foot means all the difference in the world. We have a wide variety of rings beginning with a $29 stainless steel ring to a $14,000 platinum eternity ring so I am confident you will find the one that is just right for you and your partner to adore for the rest of your lives.

Engagement and Diamond Wedding Rings

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend and in this case, I’d say it is definitely true. Looking at this ring, it can be easily seen why anyone would want to go for this type of diamond ring. What I like most about it is the simplicity and the elegance of the ring provided by the three stones. The three diamond stones set in levels gives it a look of pure grace, which when worn will look even better. The 14k solid round cut diamonds are fabulous and complement the overall roundness of the ring itself which is a plus point.

This is a diamond 3 stones wedding ring which is a 14K white gold carrying around 58.5% of the metal’s purity. This is an exclusive ladies diamond wedding ring with a total carat weight of .45ct. It is fitted with three round diamonds and a comfort fit on the center and the edges. It is an American quality wedding ring made in the USA. You would be pleasantly amazed to afford it at a price of $429.99 with 50% discount on the original tag. Select your lady’s size, price and the engraving message if any. Place your order and receive it over the next two to four business days.
