Rancho Bernardo is a beautiful community in the northern hills of San Diego and is nestled into some truly gorgeous countryside. Take your honey out for a hike, or a horse-back ride and enjoy a day in the sun together. Pack a picnic and suggest doing dinner at sunset; this will maximize the beautiful, natural backdrop for your important moment. As you and your darling are enjoying the tasty treats you've packed and enjoying the peaceful outdoors, take their hand, express your love and tell them that you can't imagine another day of your life without them. As you ask them to marry you, pull out the engagement ring that you've carefully selected from Knox Jewelers and slip the sparkling diamond jewelry onto their finger. Of course your new fiance will give a very excited “Yes!” and you'll find that they are going back and forth between gazing at you in bliss and examining all the small, hand crafted details of their new ring. It will seem like no time at all before you're choosing wedding bands together and deciding where you want to exchange your special vows.

Beyond being a lovely place to live Rancho Bernardo has some interesting history, part of which is that it is home to the oldest operating winery in Southern California: The Bernardo Winery. This business was established in 1889 and for the last 125 years of that time it has been owned by a single family and passed down three generations so far.

How wonderful would it be to propose with an heirloom quality engagement ring at an heirloom winery! There are centuries-old buildings to explore, a museum of the history of Rancho Bernardo, a small theater called “The Black Box Theatre”, unique studio spaces and galleries that create a village in and around the winery itself. There are opportunities to even partake in creating wine with them by purchasing tickets to their annual Grapestomp! This fun event is exactly what it sounds like: Show up, stomp grapes by dancing in them to live music. After the stomping you get to enjoy a delicious Italian dinner and some of the already aged wines. This would be the perfect evening to present your loved one with the special piece of diamond jewelry that you've selected just for them. It will be an evening full of great memories and romantic moments. A way that you can then reconnect your proposal to the day of your marriage would be to host your wedding in this wonderful location! Exchange you vows and wedding bands and then party the night away surrounded by the beautiful gardens. It will be a story that gets passed down the generations of your new family for sure!

Perhaps a more traditionally romantic proposal is for you? Consider the Avant restaurant at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. This gorgeous resort includes not only the Avant restaurant but also an 18 hole championship golf course, an internal day spa, a veranda fireside lounge perfect for romantic relaxation, and of course well appointed rooms to sleep in. Take your dearest love there for the weekend and when you're both totally relaxed pop the question and send yourselves over the line from joy to bliss. Perhaps the moment will be right while cuddling on that outdoor veranda looking over their stunning grounds and enjoying the firepit, or at the end of wonderful meal. Though for a truly intimate proposal consider asking in the privacy of your room where it's just the two of you. No matter which option you like you'll surly find the staff of the resort eager to assist you in anyway they can, such as arriving at a timely moment with a bottle of chilled champagne or having one awaiting you in your rooms. Your new fiance will be over the moon as they accept your proposal and they'll have plenty of people stunned with just how much that breathtaking engagement ring sparkles. Your choice of the perfect piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry will have all of their friends jealous. With your true love as your new fiance you'll both be counting the days until you can exchange wedding bands and make your marriage official.

No matter where you choose to propose, the quality, craftsmanship, and attention to design that Knox Jewelers provides will always be of the highest level and we will do everything we can to make sure that you have the perfect rings that will last down the generations of your new family together.
