We Met in College: A Proposal Story


We can't all find "the one" so early in life, but some of us just are that lucky. Speaking of the lucky ones, lovebirds James and Kristen met in college, and have been together ever since freshman year. 

James chose to propose to his now fiance at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.  The Cliffs of Moher have been featured in picturesque films such as The Princess Bride and Harry Potter. 

"I chose to propose in Ireland because that is where my family is from," James said.  "We come from a city just north of the cliffs called Galway.  I always found the Cliffs of Moher to be so beautiful and I thought that they would always make for such a memorable moment.

As for the ring, I chose Sapphire because that is my fiance's birthstone and she was always in love with Sapphires.  I loved the way the rose gold looked as well and it made the Sapphire look so elegant and regal.

Ernie [at Ricardo Basta Fine Jewelry] was a huge help in [the design] process and I can't thank him enough.  He delivered the perfect ring. Everyone has been commenting about the ring and let's just say that it is a hit!"

It's always an honor to share such special moments with such incredible people, and this is no exception. Congratulations James and Kristen, wishing you everlasting love and happiness!
