It is a very special time in life when you are considering proposing to your true love, and the first thing you want to think about when looking for an antique engagement ring in Portland, Oregon is the quality of the jewelry that you are about to invest in. This ring is not just a symbol of your love before you exchange vintage wedding rings in Portland, but will remain a symbol of your love beyond your lifetime and into the new generations of your family. That being said you clearly want to make sure that you are getting the best quality possible and here at Knox Jewelers we pride ourselves on having master artisans create each ring by hand to be heirloom quality.

Imagine walking hand-in-hand on a beautiful sunny day enjoying the scenic view of cascading waterfalls as you get down on one knee to present your vintage engagement ring to the one you love. The Keller Fountain Park offers just that! This internationally acclaimed landmark in Portland, provides the perfect backdrop as you're surrounded in a lush, green canopy of trees to propose with your hand-crafted Knox Jeweler's engagement ring. 13,000 gallons of water per minute cascades through the concrete platforms and terraces creating abundant waterfalls along this outstanding geometrical abstraction. Sitting on a blanket in the shade of the trees, listening to the rhythmic sound of the rushing water, enjoying the bliss of being newly engaged is a moment in time you'll never forget.

Another historical attraction is the 44-acre park just south of downtown Portland. As one of the 10 oldest amusement parks in the country, Oaks Park first opened to the public in May of 1905. Located on the Willamette River, Oaks Park offers a variety of amusements including midway games, rides, a skating rink and much more. Take a ride on the Ferris wheel and as you reach the top, pull out the antique engagement ring you designed and ask the girl of your dreams “Will you marry me?” As you slip the unique vintage engagement ring onto her finger she'll gasp with delight as she notices the exquisite details of the platinum filigree curls, scroll hand engraving and milgrain texture. Make this an even more memorable location by planning your wedding at the Oaks Park Dance Pavilion; exchanging your vintage wedding rings and sharing your written vows adds a greater significance to this romantic location.
Another signature proposal location is the Portland Rose Garden. The garden features more than 10,000 roses each year. As you stop to enjoy some of the public art, surprise your dearest by asking what their favorite piece is. Once they answer, pull out your vintage engagement ring and say that you brought your favorite piece with you, and hope that they wear it as a personal piece of art for the rest of their life. The sweet smell a roses will always remind you of the day you proposed to the woman you love with your custom made Knox Jewelers engagement ring.
These tender moments will be ones to treasure. We at Knox Jewelers pride ourselves on our high heirloom quality standards. You can be assured that your antique engagement ring and vintage wedding rings, symbols of your love and devotion, will be passed down the generations of your new family along with the romantic story of how it came to be.
