In the evening, share a bottle of wine on the side patio where you can also present her with a vintage engagement ring from Knox Jewelers and ask her to be yours forever. The two of you will fall so in love with this little bed and breakfast, that you’ll also fall in love with each other all over again.
Not far from the Stockade is the Old State Capitol building. The Gothic-style Old State Capitol is another beautiful place to start your life together.

Whether inside the building or on the expansive lawn, this is an exquisite place to propose to the love of your life. Give her the beautiful Knox Jewelers antique engagement ring that reflects the beauty and history of the magnificent building.
The city of Baton Rouge holds a long, historical past, and the Myrtles Plantation is no exception. The famous plantation has it all, a romantic history, tales of possible hauntings and tragedy, lush and enchanting scenery, lavish accommodations, and a charming restaurant. You can stay in one of the rooms inside the house itself, or in one of the cottages on the property. Take a guided tour of the plantation to learn about the people who have lived there and the ghosts that are rumored to haunt the property and house. Walk among the centuries old oak trees, where you can find some solitude to declare your love and give the vintage engagement ring to your one and only.
For nature lovers is the beautiful Cohn Arboretum. Surround yourselves with enchanting trees, flowers, and local plant-life within the 16-acre arboretum. As you explore the magnificent and breathtaking Cohn Arboretum, keep a lookout for the perfect spot that would best reflect the vintage Knox Jewelers engagement ring you intend to give your beloved.
