Christmas can be an incredibly romantic time to propose, and the season offers plenty of opportunities to pop the question. Still debating how you’ll ask? Here are several ideas for unforgettable December proposals, as well as stunning engagement rings that will leave no question about how you feel.
For a simple, seasonal way to surprise that special someone, try hiding the ring in the tree or tying it to an ornament. The Christmas lights will increase any diamond’s sparkle and maximize any metal’s shine.
Two-tone wedding bands gleam with contrasting shades of precious metals, creating styles that are both versatile and eye-catching. The Art Deco 1/2 Carat Diamond Ring in 14K Two-Tone Gold is a prime example. The ring features a glittering ½ carat diamond that’s revealed as a smooth, stylized 14K yellow gold flower opens its petals, giving a new twist to solitaire style. In contrast to the simple, sweeping shape of this flower, a 14K white gold band is carved with a swirling paisley-like petal motif. This ring makes the lines and shapes of the Art Deco period relevant in the present and for the future.
A Christmas sleigh ride can set the stage for a memorable proposal, adding a sense of old-fashioned charm. If you live in an area that’s too warm for snow, a horse-drawn carriage is an equally romantic alternative.
Vintage engagement rings are particularly fitting for a sleigh ride proposal. For instance, the 3/4 Carat Three Stone Princess Cut “Floret” Diamond Ring captures the romanticism of the Victorian Era with unmatched sparkle and beauty. A 0.30 carat princess-cut diamond is accented by two princess-cut side diamonds and six smaller round channel-set diamonds, all set in a band gorgeously carved with a leaf and floret motif.
If you’re looking to propose in a big way, consider using your front lawn (or an out-of the way place at a local park) to spell out your proposal. If weather permits, write it in the snow on a large scale, illuminating your message if you’re planning on popping the question after dark. You could also use candles to form the words “Marry Me?” or create your message with Christmas lights on the ground or on the roof.
Rings with multiple diamonds look particularly stunning when they’re reflecting the light of a candle or of any illuminated proposal, as demonstrated by the brilliant 0.95 Carat Diamond Swirl Engagement Set. This pair of rings contains 59 diamonds in all, working together in perfect harmony to form a show-stopping contemporary look. The engagement ring in this set features a gorgeous 0.50 round carat diamond, while smaller stones encrust the band and encircle the center gem like a lively ocean wave. The coordinating diamond-covered wedding band moves with its partner without missing a beat. It’s just one of several of Apples of Gold’s diamond bridal sets that glimmer with multiple stones.
No matter how you pop the question, any of these engagement rings will help make your proposal unforgettable. These stunning rings represent the love that makes your heart sparkle.
