With over 50 years in the bridal jewelry business, BARONS Jewelers has collected quite a few interesting marriage proposal stories from our beloved San Francisco and Bay Area customers.
So, if you’re thinking about popping the big question but aren’t sure how to do it, here are a few proposal ideas from the wedding experts at BARONS. And to make it easy to find the perfect engagement ring for each proposal, we’ve matched each idea with a designer ring available in our Dublin, California showroom.
Proposal Idea #1: Sunset on the Beach!
Romantic and simple yet still unforgettable, a beachside proposal is a fabulous way to surprise your one true love.
Possible ways of popping the question include hiding the ring in a sand castle, writing your proposal in the sand, or taking a stroll on the beach at sunset and taking-a-knee when the time is right.
Beachside Engagement Ring Pick: Coast Diamond Solitaire Ring
Classic and timeless, the allure of a Coast Diamond engagement ring is undeniable. Featuring a split diamond shank, this beautiful solitaire (model #LC10120) from the Charisma collection is a wonderful match for any beachside marriage proposal.
Shown here in brilliant 14-karat white gold, this Coast Diamond ring is crafted in a lovely vintage style and features a half-eternity pave diamond embellishment along the band itself.
Proposal Idea #2: Love in the Land of Ice and Fire!
If you and your beloved love traveling, another fabulous idea is a destination proposal. At BARONS we’ve heard that some couples head for the idyllic landscapes of Iceland. Known for awe-inspiring natural terrain that includes waterfalls, volcanos, lagoons, and more, Iceland is a wonderful place for a surprise proposal.
Nothing is more romantic than proposing behind one of Iceland’s most picturesque waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss. Or for a real adventure, try proposing while snorkeling along the Silfra Fissure! No matter where you end up, a destination engagement is a fabulous place to declare and celebrate your everlasting love!
Love in the Land of Ice and Fire Engagement Ring Pick: Gelin Abaci Tension Set Ring
For proposing in a special location like Iceland, try looking for a more unique and modern engagement ring, such as this stunning diamond ring by Gelin Abaci.
Using only the finest diamonds, the engagement rings of Gelin Abaci feature distinctive tension style settings, which make the center stones appear to be suspended mid-air.
Our Gelin Abaci pick (model #TR-266) is crafted using pristine 18-karat white gold, and features a finely crafted diamond pave band that artfully converges towards the center round cut stone.
Proposal Idea #3: Love with a Side of Dinner and a Movie!
A variation on a classic dinner proposal, try proposing at the movies! Many smaller independent film chains allow guests to purchase screen time, giving proposers the opportunity to pop the big question with their very own custom ad or short film.
On the other hand, if a dinner-time proposal is more your speed, you can’t go wrong with personalized menus and special desserts that feature a sparkling surprise!
Love With a Side of Dinner and a Movie Engagement Ring Pick: Tacori Sidestone Ring
Handcrafted in Los Angeles, the engagement rings of Tacori continue to be the most popular designer for BARONS customers and throughout California.
As a Tacori Diamond Partner, we have an extraordinary collection of diamond rings and wedding bands in our Dublin, California showroom. With such a vast selection of Tacori engagement rings on display, it has never been easier to find a diamond engagement ring that will leave a bride-to-be speechless. Our diamond ring pick (model #HT2510PR12X) is from Tacori’s Reverse Crescent collection and is designed to be the star of your own feature film.
Crafted with 18-karat white gold or platinum, this diamond sidestone style ring features a princess cut center with dazzling channel pave side stones and Tacori’s signature crescent silhouettes that bring an undeniable level of sparkle and shine to the piece.
