Take your beloved by the hand, lower yourself onto one knee, and as you ask one of the most important questions of your life, present the dazzling vintage Knox Jewelers engagement ring you have picked out.

Another stunning gem in the urban sprawl is the Victorian neighborhood, Preservation Park. Well preserved and beautifully kept, this park truly is a diamond in the rough. It fills two blocks of Oakland’s downtown area. What makes this park so amazing are the vintage Victorian facades of the buildings in the neighborhood and the captivating greenery. Best of all, it is a wonderful spot for a wedding. One way to pop the question to your true love is to arrive at the park and discuss the beauty of your surroundings. Then,as you sink to one knee and present the impressive antique diamond ring from Knox Jewelers, ask if maybe that is where you should get married.

You can’t go wrong with a traditional proposal in a classic location like a fancy restaurant. There is something about sharing a nice meal with the person you love that creates a feeling of love and comfort. For romantic ambiance and a decadent meal, A Cote Restaurant has a delicious selection of small plates for the two of you to share. If what you are looking for is an incredible view to go with your meal, then the Lake Chalet Seafood Bar and Grill is the place to go. Overlooking Lake Merrit, this restaurant has both a beautiful lakeside view and excellent cuisine. The two of you can sit on the patio to enjoy the fresh air and the view while you eat the fresh seafood that the restaurant has to offer. Whichever place you choose, when you give your beloved the breathtaking vintage Knox Jewelers engagement ring, you will get the “Yes!” that you have waited for.
