You can see that Charlotte also adopted Queen Sophie Charlotte's love of art; their arts and culture scene gets a standing ovation. The city hosts a variety of breathtaking ballets and stage shows, and its museums and galleries are among the foremost in the nation. In particular the Levine Center for the Arts is one of Charlotte’s key cultural destinations, comprised of Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts & Culture, the John S. and James L. Knight Theater, and the Mint Museum Uptown. Four different takes on art all in one building could make for an entire day filled with aesthetically pleasing sights and sounds that you can finish off, and make positively perfect, by proposing to your sweetheart with a custom engagement ring from Knox Jewelers. Spend the day wandering the different galleries of the three museum spaces, then escort your beloved to a show in the Knight Theater. During intermission, or perhaps just after the show ends, take their hand in yours and say that you have a surprise for them, you've arranged for them to take home a piece of art when you leave today. They'll be intrigued and excited by this. Then as you pull out the beautiful wooden ring box and open it to reveal the custom piece of diamond jewelry that you had made just for them, the excitement will turn into total joy. Their eyes will sparkle almost as much as the gems in the micro pave ring you've placed on their finger. When you tell them that this custom piece was hand crafted and will last throughout the generations of your new family together they'll be so touched by your thoughtfulness that they won't want to wait to exchange wedding bands.
Perhaps you have a more classic proposal in mind? Popping the question after a romantic dinner is a timeless way to ask your sweetheart to be yours forever. Bentley’s on 27 is a wonderfully elegant French restaurant on the 27th Floor or the Charlotte Plaza on 201 South College Street. This restaurant is known for it's exquisite food, impeccable service, and both the atmosphere inside and the panoramic skyline views from the windows. As you arrive and settle in to order, advise your darling to save room for dessert. As your dinner plates are cleared, take their hands and tell them how much you love them. Tell them that you want to spend all your days will them and pull out the gorgeous engagement ring that you had Knox Jewelers make just for them. Tell them how special they are and that that is why you needed to have a unique, heirloom quality piece of art for them to wear. When you make your reservations for this special dinner make sure to tell the staff you plans. Surely they'll be happy to bring you and your new fiance a champagne toast as you order dessert so they can all 'ooh' and 'aah' over the sparkling piece of diamond jewelery you've just given to your true love. They can also provide you information about hosting your wedding reception there; and why not? If you love their food and the ambiance then return to make this place extra special by celebrating with your nearest and dearest after you've exchanged your wedding bands.
So maybe the indoor venues we've discussed so far aren't quite your style. If you and your dearest enjoy being outdoors then head over to one of the two Botanical Gardens near Charlotte. The Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is just west of Charlotte in Belmont, NC and was built in 1991 on part of a 400 acre lot. While much of this has been covered with their stunning indoor and outdoor gardens there is still room for growth and they already have future plans in the works. This stunning place has a variety of different locations on site where you could exchange your vows and wedding bands. Keep this in mind when you plan your proposal, it would make for truly special memories to present the beautiful engagement ring to your loved on in the same place that you'll later celebrate your marriage. The other Botanical Garden is on the east side of Charlotte and is part of the University of North Carolina's Charlotte Campus. This smaller set of gardens isn't ideal for large ceremonies or celebrations, but would be perfect for an intimate proposal. When you slip that heirloom quality ring onto your sweetheart's finger they'll think that you pulled the stars from the night sky and set them sparkling into this piece of diamond jewelry for them. They are certainly the star of your life, which is why you got the best antique inspired engagement ring in Charlotte as a symbol of your love.
No matter where you decide to pop this momentous question, be rest assured that with a ring from Knox Jewelers you will get only top, heirloom quality, pieces of jewelry made to fit exactly the design you want.
