Channel the romance of a bygone era by hiring a horse drawn carriage to take you on a relaxing ride through beautiful Woodward Park. As you’re passing beneath the ancient redwood trees, snuggle up to your sweetheart and reminisce about all the good times you’ve had together so far, and how many more good times you hope to share. Pick a lovely shady spot to stop for a picnic and spread out a soft blanket, then slowly unpack the picnic basket that you’ve filled with some of their favorite foods and a bottle of champagne or sparkling cider, saving the Knox Jewelers ring box for last. Keep the ring hidden until you can explain that the champagne is to celebrate what you hope they’re about to say, then open the box to reveal the vintage engagement ring you selected as a symbol of your timeless love.
To step even further back in time, invite your date to the Forestiere Underground Gardens for an unforgettable experience. Built in 1906 by Sicilian artist Baldassare Forestiere, this historical landmark features an intricate series of subterranean rooms, grottoes and courtyards, lit by skylights and filled with exotic fruit trees, gorgeous flowers and succulent greenery. Your partner will feel transported to another world, and you can make the moment even more magical when you get down on one knee to present the antique style ring you designed for them with Knox Jewelers.
Or, perhaps a bit of pampering is more appealing to you and your partner. Treat yourselves to a relaxing getaway at Muses Spa, where you can enjoy an array of luxurious services and lounge in a plush robe while sipping champagne or mimosas. Relax in the sauna, have a fabulous facial or mani-pedi, or freshen up your look with a new cut and color, but be sure to book the couple’s massage suite for a private Swedish or deep tissue massage for two. You may need to enlist the help of the massage therapists to keep your Knox Jewelers ring box handy so, when your honey has been properly reduced to melted butter, you can make their heart race again with the vintage engagement ring of their dreams.
If you both love a little drama, as long as it’s on the stage, Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater could be the ideal setting for a dramatic proposal on a Friday or Saturday night. Check the calendar for a show and accompanying menu that suit your tastes, then get all dolled up for an entertaining evening. Enjoy a delicious dinner and the first act. Then while dessert is being served during intermission, stand up and tap your water glass until a hush falls on the crowd. Drop down to one knee, knowing that you and your partner are now the stars of the show, and profess your undying love with an antique engagement ring that sparkles like your lovers eyes in the candlelight. When you call to make reservations, you may even be able to get some of the staff or the actors in on the plan; everyone loves to help a couple get engaged.
Ultimately, whether your style is casual or dramatic or somewhere in between, Knox Jewelers is happy to help you find the antique or vintage engagement ring that will instantly inspire a “Yes!” when you ask the age-old question, “Will you marry me?”
