Picking out the perfect design, style, diamond cuts, metals and gemstones of antique jewelry for your loved one may seem like a daunting challenge, but the artisans at Knox Jewelers stand ready to guide you through the decision making process to hand craft you the finest symbols of your love. Likewise, Knox Jewelers can help you find the perfect spot to present your beloved with a vintage engagement ring in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
As the “City of Brotherly Love” is the second largest city on the U.S. east coast, and boasts the largest landscaped urban park in the world and hundreds of artistic, cultural and historical attractions, there are no lack of intriguing spots in which to make your bid for everlasting love. And speaking of “love,” Knox Jewelers suggests that you first consider “Love Park,” with its reproduction of Robert Indiana’s “Love” sculpture serving as the park’s centerpiece. What better place to present your beloved with a vintage engagement ring and promise of everlasting love, than under that iconic sculpture that spells it out?

If you are feeling a little tongue tied, you can head to the southwestern corner of the park to access the “Love Tour,” a one-and-a-half hour guided tour of 50 murals between 45th and 63rd Streets, which, when combined, read out as a love letter. No doubt that one of the many tender endearments can help you formulate your own words as you present your love with an heirloom quality antique ring.
With no lack of public parks and gardens in the city, perhaps you should think outside the box when considering the ideal proposal spot. In that vein, perhaps you could present your offer of enduring love with a vintage engagement ring at the magical “Dream Garden.” Located in the marbled and fountained lobby of the Curtis Center, the colorful and majestic garden is a 15 x 49-foot mosaic consisting of more than 100,000 pieces of favrile glass—a feast for the eyes that will only be rivalled by the antique jewelry you offer your love.
As the brilliant colors of mosaic art will undoubtedly enhance the presentation of your vintage engagement ring adorned with gemstones, then you need to also consider Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. Spanning a half-city block, the stunning mosaic tiling that surrounds you in the indoor gallery and the large outdoor labyrinth represents the largest work of art by mosaic master Isaiah Zagar. The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, with a collection of art thought to be the most romantic in the city, is a splendid place to propose. The brilliant colours will surround you and your darling as you express your feelings of love. Your sweetheart will be filled with joy while you get down on one knee and present them with the dazzling, mini-work of art that you had created just for them.
With regard to a more nature-filled garden or park, Knox Jewelers suggests you consider Race Street Pier or Penn Treaty Park, waterfront parks that offer lovely views of the Delaware River. There is also plenty of romance to be found at Morris Arboretum, a 92-acre Victorian landscaped garden. Or perhaps the “Whispering Benches” at Fairmount Park’s Smith Memorial, where lovers sit far apart, yet their whispered sweet nothings carry across the curve of the memorial. Thus, you can whisper your proclamation of love first and then follow up with your offering of a hand-crafted antique ring as you repeat your offer of life-long love.
All in all, these are just a small sample of the hundreds of possible spots Knox Jewelers is aware of in the City of Brotherly Love that could serve as the perfect engagement proposal locale in which to confirm your everlasting love with the presentation of a vintage engagement ring.
