The Dayton Art Institute was founded in 1919 and its founding patrons included prominent community leaders such as Orville Wright and the Patterson Brothers, founders of NCR.

Imagine taking your beloved to this impressive landmark building and admiring both the architecture, inspired by sixteenth century Italian Renaissance buildings, and the vast collection of art works. As you stroll through your favorite exhibits wait for your sweetheart to express interest in a piece, or lament that you can't take one home. When that happens take their hand and say that you have a surprise for them, you already got them a work of art that they can keep. The excitement will light their face and as you pull out the beautiful ring box and open it to reveal the custom designed engagement ring you chose, that excitement will be combined with joy and wonder.

A live performance may hold more appeal than strolling the galleries of a museum and through The Victoria Theatre Association there are two fantastic venues at which you and your darling can take in a variety of performances. The Theatre Association is the company which owns and operates both the Victoria Theatre and the Schuster Center. Both buildings are used for different series throughout their theatre season though the Schuster Center tends more towards larger performances (Broadway and others) as well as hosting the Dayton Philharmonic, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Ballet. The Historic Victoria Theatre hosts a wide variety of shows and between both locations the Theatre Association puts on over 300 performances a year. Look up the perfect night of entertainment for you and your dearest, maybe go out to dinner before the show, and choose your perfect moment for the big question and presentation of the gorgeous engagement ring you've chosen from Knox Jewelers. Just before the show starts, during intermission, or just after the show ends would be the best times but which is perfect for you may depend on the exact show you go to see. Once you've popped the question and you and your sweetheart are cuddled up basking in your new betrothal you'll get to tell them that the piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry they wear was custom made just for them. They'll be so excited by this that it will be no time at all before you're looking at wedding bands so that you too can get an exquisite heirloom quality ring from Knox Jewelers.

A quiet, intimate proposal may be more your style than a public venue but you still want it to be unique and romantic. There are multiple companies that provide cabins for rent in the area which will provide a little secluded slice of paradise for you and your true love. Many of these cabins include a hot tub and offer additional services such as delivery of flowers, chocolates, or champagne. Some even have a masseuse you can hire to come right to the cabin! Steal your honey away for a weekend of pampering in the great outdoors and you'll have a proposal story that gets told for years to come. Wait until the moment is just right and tell your darling just how much they mean to you and that you want to spend forever with them. As you slip the breathtaking engagement ring onto their finger and after their eager acceptance they'll want to know where you got this amazing piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry. As you explain about Knox Jewelers and how you had this ring custom made and hand-crafted by master artisans to be heirloom quality your new fiance will more and more impressed. Soon you'll be exchanging your vows and wedding bands in front of your nearest and dearest and dancing the night away in each others arms.
