Law of Attraction: Sabrina & Dana's Engagement

Sabrina and Dana were first introduced in an outing with a large group of mutual friends during their second year at Marquette University Law School. Dana was immediately hooked by Sabrina’s beauty and charm, so much so that he didn’t want the night to end before knowing exactly when he would be able to see her again.

Completely by “chance,” Dana surprised Sabrina the following morning by stopping by the table where she was studying in the library.

Sabrina & Dana's Wedding - Brian Gavin Diamonds

“I was floored by how thoughtful, well-spoken, handsome and sweet he was,” Sabrina beamed. “Within weeks, we were inseparable. In fact, we decided to travel to Europe together for Spring Break only six weeks after we met! We've been adventuring together ever since.”

Law school can be a hectic time with everyone around you striving toward the same goal. Their relationship withstood the pressures of law school and they graduated together, both receiving amazing job offers in different cities.

Sabrina & Dana's Wedding - Brian Gavin Diamonds

Dana knew he had to be wherever Sabrina was. Without hesitation, he dropped everything – leaving a job offer, friends, and his former home – and followed Sabrina to Minneapolis.

Dana looked to Brian Gavin Diamonds to find an immaculate engagement ring to symbolize his love for and devotion to Sabrina. He chose the stunning Valentine Micro Pave 1 engagement, complete with an 18K white gold finish. With the ring picked out, he began to plan an elaborate proposal to win Sabrina’s heart permanently.

“The day that he proposed seemed to me like any other day, in that we both went off to work and then planned to meet up at one of our favorite Minneapolis restaurants for drinks and an appetizer,” Sabrina described. “Little did I know that he was nervously carrying around my Brian Gavin diamond around in his pocket all day!”

Sabrina & Dana's Wedding - Brian Gavin Diamonds

Sabrina’s story had us swooning, so we’ll let you hear it in her own words:

That evening, we had a wonderful date and Dana managed to convince me to walk out on the historic Stone Arch Bridge in sub-zero degree temperatures to look at a very-rarely frozen waterfall over the Mississippi River.

As we walked out on the bridge, Dana suggested that he might have an early Valentine's gift for me if I was interested. We turned around to make our way back to the warmth of the car because the cold air was making it harder to concentrate. I took a few steps before I realized that he hadn't continued with me.

When I turned around, he was down on one knee and asked that I spend the rest of my life with him. Amid my complete and utter shock, I managed to say yes and forget how cold it was outside as we embraced. Tears of happiness trickled down my cheek and it was only when Dana realized the teardrops were starting to freeze that we hurried to celebrate indoors!

Just like she did with Dana, Sabrina experienced a rush of feelings and love at first sight. “The ring Dana chose for me is brilliant, beautiful and unique! I couldn't take my eyes off it,” she exclaimed.

“We had never spoken about wedding plans, much less ring styles, so I truly felt that my future husband was the one for me based on his selection of the perfect ring. I wouldn't have been able to identify a more perfect ring if I tried. The style is so classic and stunning,” she admitted.

Sabrina & Dana's Wedding - Brian Gavin Diamonds

Sabrina and Dana tied the knot with a glamorous, traditional ceremony in Salt Lake City, Utah. The day was bright and colorful amid the backdrop of the majestic Utah mountains, and the lucky couple was surrounded by their closest friends and family.

A Picture-Perfect NYC Proposal

Sometimes it only takes a New York minute to find true love. Our customers Barbara and Phil first met at the unique Mermaid Oyster Bar in New York City. A special love soon formed and the two became inseparable. Their love was put to the test one year later when Phil was forced to relocate to Washington D.C. for a job opportunity.

He found himself trekking the hour and a half commute to the Big Apple to see Barbara every weekend. Withstanding nearly two years of a long-distance love, Barbara took the plunge and moved to Washington D.C. to be with Phil—she soon realized that is was one of the best decisions of her life.

With Barbara in D.C., there was absolutely no question that she was the one for Phil. He immediately began searching for the perfect engagement ring to symbolize his undying love for Barbara, leading him straight to Brian Gavin Diamonds.

Phil scoured the vast selection of engagement ring styles in our online gallery. Halo, three-stone, pave and side stone settings—all glamorous and lovely options. When he set his eyes on the solitaire Classic Style Half Round engagement ring, his search was over. The classic style 6-prong solitaire with half round band was the ideal setting for Barbara.

 

Classic Style Half Round engagement ring

 

With the setting picked out, he worked closely with the Brian Gavin Diamonds team to choose a stunning finish and an immaculate diamond to complete the ring. Phil opted for the 18K yellow gold finish. Upon recommendation from the BGD team, he selected a sparkling Black by Brian Gavin diamond, truly making Barbara’s engagement ring a divine treasure. With ring in hand, Phil began to plan the proposal of a lifetime!

“I started planning the proposal late in 2016,” Phil said. “We had a weekend trip planned once to see the ‘Book of Mormon’ on Broadway, but unfortunately, Snowstorm Jonas forced us to cancel. I told Barbara that we should plan another trip to New York City and visit the Mermaid Oyster Bar before seeing the play,” he continued.

Barbara knew they’d have a great time in New York, but what she didn’t know was that Phil had contacted the restaurant letting them know he planned to propose in the same spot they met. “I asked them to create a special cocktail menu with the names of the cocktails swapped out with personal notes. The last cocktail on the menu would read, ‘Will you marry me?’” he explained.

Phil also arranged for an undercover photographer to sit at the table directly across from theirs so the couple could remember the proposal for the rest of their lives.

As the loving couple arrived at the restaurant, Phil tried his best to remain unfazed by the anticipation he was feeling inside. The waiter nonchalantly took them to a specific table in a more private area of the restaurant and brought out the special, customized menus.

Barbara began to read the menu and soon realized what was happening. Phil bent down to one knee and asked for her hand. Through smiles and tears, Barbara said “yes!”

“I never knew what I wanted in an engagement ring until Phil presented such a beautifully designed ring when he asked for my hand in marriage,” Barbara beamed. “My ring is such a masterpiece that I will treasure forever,” she continued.

“I love a classic style and prefer gold over silver, so the ring Phil chose was more than I could have ever dreamed of,” Barbara said, “Our engagement felt truly magical, which I believe is a sign that we were always meant to be.”

The couple jovially toasted their flutes filled with champagne and Phil’s photographer captured every blissful second. As Phil and Barbara finished their meals, they walked outside to find a light snow beginning to fall on the street, making it a picture-perfect proposal!

Our team takes pride in helping beautiful love stories like Barbara and Phil’s come to life. Visit our website to see other glamorous engagement ring styles and start your own love story.

Colleen and Sean: A Proposal in Paradise

Colleen and Sean both knew in their hearts they had found “the one,” and often would talk about spending their lives together. Sean sought out Brian Gavin Diamonds for an engagement ring to embody the four magical years he had spent as a couple with Colleen.

After marveling through the extensive collection of engagement ring styles on the Brian Gavin Diamonds website, Sean opted for a custom platinum three stone, three halo setting with a vividly stunning 1.735 carat Black by Brian Gavin center stone. He included a square halo around the center stone, along with half halos around the side stones – complete with a unique engraving on the inner rim of the platinum band.

With ring-in-hand, Sean planned to surprise his bride-to-be with the proposal of a lifetime.

“I knew I wanted to propose in Kauai,” Sean beamed. “We go there every New Year’s Eve and I knew it would be the perfect way to ring in 2017.”

The beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai has always held a special place in their hearts, and there was no question that they would return to the island for this life-changing moment. Sean arranged for family and friends to be there for the proposal, making the experience even more extraordinary.

“We have family and friends in Oahu,” Sean said. “They flew in for the ‘New Year,’ but little did Colleen know that they were all in on the secret. They were there for the proposal!”

Sean convinced Colleen to get her hair and makeup done for “New Year’s Eve,” so they could take photos with friends later in the evening. Colleen was picked up midday for her beauty appointments and was unsuspecting of Sean’s true plans for the day.

“We were walking on the sands of the North Shore for a while when I noticed all of my family and friends were dressed up down the beach,” Colleen described. “As I got closer to where everyone was standing, that’s when I saw the photographer and the guitar player playing Train’s ‘Marry Me’ in the background. I finally came up to Sean and I realized he was wearing a Ti leaf – that’s when it hit me! He pulled me aside from everyone and we both instantly started crying happy tears. He proposed, hands shaking and all, and he placed the stunning diamond ring on my finger. Of course, I said yes!”

“The ring Sean picked out is so sparkly and gorgeous,” Colleen described. “It’s definitely one-of-a-kind!”

“I can’t wait to come back to beautiful Kauai,” Colleen explained. “We’ve always loved going to Kauai on vacation and now we became engaged on Kauai. It’s a no-brainer that we’re going to get married on Kauai. I’m so excited to have our reception on the front lawn of my parents’ house.”

We could not be more thrilled for these two lovebirds and are especially honored to have been a part of their picture-perfect proposal. One of the most gratifying moments for the Brian Gavin Diamonds team is creating a stunning diamond engagement ring like Sean and Colleen’s ring that will forever symbolize their love for one another.
