So you’ve got the romantic atmosphere, have found the love of your life, and mapped out the perfect proposal for Valentine’s Day, now you need the ring! If you are planning to pop the question, stay tuned for everything you need to know for that perfect engagement ring!
It’s here! The most romantic day of the year has finally arrived! This day that is all about love and affection is an incredibly popular time to propose. And it is no wonder, the pitter-patter of snowfall, snuggling in front of the fireplace, the afterglow of the holiday season, Valentine’s Day is not called the day of romance for nothing!
What exactly IS Valentine’s Day?
History tells us that Valentine’s Day’s romantic origins date back to Ancient Roman times, when Saint Valentine defied then-Emperor Claudius II. The Emperor had banned marriages for young men, believing they made better soldiers than husbands and fathers.
Saint Valentine felt so strongly that this decree was unfair, that he continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. Eventually, the Saint was caught and executed, but this day of love which some say commemorates Saint Valentine’s burial, is associated with the love he died to protect.
Valentine’s Day has since moved on from secret marriages. This day of love is often used to commemorate various milestones in a relationship……or to start one! Who doesn’t remember sticking a paper lunch bag to your desk, handing out cards and candies to your classmates. Then check your bag to see if your crush gave you one and if they wrote a special message!
The thrill of someone coming up to you in the hallway, giving you a Valentine from your crush, because they were too shy to do it themselves! Then save the card and read it over and over to your friends, talking about how cute your crush is!
Or your first Valentine’s Day with your first significant other. Buying all the traditional gifts, teddy bears, candy, flowers, ahhhhhhh young love! And now here you are, ready to pop THE big question.
Maybe you are planning a big public proposal using the jumbotron at a basketball game, or you’ll attach a ring to your dog’s collar, or perhaps you’ll go more intimate, a quiet candlelight dinner, either way, you will need the perfect engagement ring….and then wedding ring!
You have the perfect day, the perfect love, the perfect proposal, make sure you have the perfect sparkles. From asking someone out for the first time “Will you be my valentine?” to proposing to your long-time love, this is truly a day of romance.
Holy Ring Choices!
Engagement rings have come a long way, from traditional diamond solitaire engagement rings, to engagement rings (& wedding rings) that utilize gemstones and diamonds together; the classic yellow gold band, to white and rose gold options, the ring you choose can be as unique as your love.
