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”!

The Secret to White Gold

White gold was been referred to for many years as an alternative to platinum. This may be true in the eyes of many, but white gold created a phenomenon in the jewelry industry and has never looked back. In order to look like its precious counter-part in platinum, white gold goes through a very precious process called “rhodium platting” to look as beautiful and unique as it does when it reaches your hands.

In its raw state without any rhodium platting, white gold really has a yellowish look to it since gold is really yellow in its true color. What rhodium platting does is it allows a plain piece of white gold to be dipped in rhodium to give it a very clean, fresh, and shiny feel to it which will last for a very long time. This process allows the jewelry to have a very clean white look to it which to the naked eye may look just the same as more expensive products.

So how much does this rhodium platting cost you to make your piece of jewelry look that much better? Most jewelers around the world charge anywhere from $20-$25 per piece to dip your ring in rhodium, but here at Wedding Rings Depot we do it free of charge! We believe that the customer should always receive the perfect ring they had in mind from us, and if you’re thinking that rhodium platting your white gold is the way to go, then we will be more than happy to do that for you for no extra cost.

If you do chose to get your ring rhodium platted, how often you get it re-platted can vary on many factors. How much the ring rubs against other metals and products like clothing and household chemicals may affect how long that beautiful crisp look may last. Usually, the rhodium will last and keep it shine between 2-3 years on average, but no matter when you think it is time to get it re-platted you come to us and we will make sure to take care of you!

So when you are searching through our vast selections of rings in route to finding that perfect one for you and your loved one, remember the little secret about white gold that you learned from us today. This small process of rhodium platting can make a huge difference in the appearance of your ring and may just be that next step you may want to take in creating that perfect band for the big day!

Top Flat – Classic Bands

This ring has a very classic yet contemporary look about it. Now in itself is a remarkable feat to achieve. How to make something so eternally classic appeal to a more contemporary audience as well? This ring is the perfect example. It’s simplicity, the smoothness of the materials that have been used, all add to the beauty of this ring. Unlike the more classic rings, this wedding band has a flat top. Essentially this means that the top part is not round like the rest of the band but is slightly flat to give it another surface. When wearing it, I would love to see the different planes of the ring that would be showcased with the flat top.

This 6 mm wedding band uses yellow metal with a metal type of gold. The gold used in this ring has a purity of about 58.5% and looks absolutely stunning. Priced at $549.99, this 18K solid gold band is the perfect choice for a traditional as well as an edgy look. The product code for this wedding band is SKU: 6mmYFLAT-18K. Even the inside edge of the ring has been rounded out to provide comfort for the wearer, making it a comfort fit.

Milgrain Rings

This particular ring appeals to me on various levels. However, for me, the most beautiful part is the unusual colour of it. This rose colour is not very common when it comes to wedding bands. After all it is not everyday you come across a person who would be wearing a rose gold wedding band. I think the simplicity and the colour of this ring is working absolutely beautifully and I would love to buy this ring. I love the colour and its charisma for this ring. The colour is gorgeous, it is not a typical cluster of diamonds and the Milgrain edge on both sides of the band adds to the aesthetic quality of the ring.

The Milgrain edge definitely accents the ring and priced at a mere $249.99, this ring is very much affordable and you can also save up to 38%. It is a comfort fit that has been designed to provide rounded edges and a very smooth interior for maximum comfort.

Unique Hand Braided Wedding Band

8.5 mm in width, this hand braided ring shows the effort and work that has been done on the surface of the wedding band. The braid circles the entire ring and complements the form of the ring, which is my favorite thing when I look at this ring.
