Jewel Day! by TaraD

We all admire certain jewels or want a specific style for a wedding or engagement ring,

check out the meaning of some of these beautiful jewels.

Garnet

Garnet stone is beautifully eye catching and has many meanings. This stone is extremely appropriate

for engagement rings as it symbolises fire, passion, and love.

The Garnet stone is also associated with life and business, popularity with friends, high energy, and

fertility.

Diamond

Diamonds are most commonly known as being almost indestructible, symbolising eternity this is a

great choice for an engagement or wedding ring. Diamonds are also known for their eye catching

sparkle and brilliance thus symbolising love.

Topaz

It is believed that the gemstone Topaz can have a calming effect on emotions while also bringing

energy to the wearer when they need it if troublesome events occur.

Sapphire

Blue Sapphire is beautifully breath taking, it was believed by the Ancient Persians that the Earth was

mounted on a blue sapphire and that its colour was reflected in the sky. Sapphire captures so much

symbolising loyalty, faithfulness and trust, making it the perfect symbol for an engagement or a

wedding ring of a couples love.

Emerald

Emerald green has beautiful symbolisations attached to it, it has the concept of eternity as it is the

colour that constantly renews itself through generations. It is thought that when you give an emerald

you are showing humility, which is thought to be a good thing when starting a new life with somebody.

So make that ring extra special by thinking about the symbolism attached to it!

Happy shopping 

Proposal Day by TaraD

SENTIMENTAL LOCATION

If there is a place that you and your partner love, such as a beach or your usual Sunday walk….

Pack a picnic and write will ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ in the sand or if it’s raining bring an umbrella and have ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ written inside it, so it will be seen when you pop it open!!

Piñata

Have some fun!!! Surprise your partner some day after work by making dinner, have a piñata filled with your partner’s favourite sweets and have the engagement ring in the piñata too!!!

Music

If you’re musical , why not learn a song that your partner loves or that is sentimental to the two of ye and throw into the song at some stage ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME’ or else put together a slide show with pictures of the two of you and the song in the background, at the end have pictures coming up with the big question on them!!

Family

Get the family involved, have everyone hiding waiting to celebrate the minute your partner says ‘YES’ to your proposal!!

Pets

If you have a dog and can train them to carry the ring box over to your partner or have them wearing a bandana saying will you marry me?!

Hire a professional photographer

Capture the moment you ask the question and look of excitement and shock to the passionate kiss, these are beautiful moments to capture. Keeping hidden and out of sight a good photographer will capture amazing pictures of your magical moment!

Creative

You don’t have to propose with a ring, just the words ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ is enough to sweep your partner off their feet. You can propose with anything from a favorite flower, a particularly coloured stone or shell anything that symbolizes you as a couple, yer hobbies or interests!!

Just remember to have fun and get creative!!!
