If there is one thing that Richmond has to offer, it is a wealth of history, and Agecroft Hall is teeming with it. Built in Lancashire, England in the 15th century, Agecroft Hall is a manor museum that has many stories to tell. In 1925 the house was sold, disassembled, crated, and shipped to its current home in Richmond. This Tudor-style manor rests on over 20 acres of land. In addition to the tours and history that the house has to offer, there are two gardens and a stunning fountain on the property, all perfect locations for a proposal. Your dazzling vintage Knox Jewelers diamond ring will be the perfect pairing with the antique house and incredible surroundings.

For the more adventurous types, there is the James River Park System. This system of parks located on either side of the James River in the middle of Richmond has a wide variety of sights and activities for whatever kind of adventure is befitting you and your partner. You can go white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, or paddle boarding in various spots along the river. There are hiking trails and enough wilderness for you to go mountain biking, rock climbing, tree climbing, and trail running. Whichever aspect of this massive and lush park suits the interests of you and your beloved, venture out to your favorite spot after a day of excitement. Then you can ask your other half to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, and right there amid the beauty of nature present the vintage engagement ring you have carefully chosen from Knox Jewelers. Such a loving and beautiful moment will be forever etched into your memories.
The traditional marriage proposal is not suitable for every couple. If you and your beloved are fans of the famous American author and poet Edgar Allan Poe, then the Edgar Allan Poe Museum will be the most extraordinary and unique place for a proposal. Take a tour through the museum and learn all about Poe’s life, work, and his time spent in Richmond. The museum houses the finest collection of original Poe works and possessions. Even if you are a long-time fan, you will come away from this museum with more knowledge and a greater appreciation for the legendary writer. After your tour, take your significant other into the quaint courtyard on the property for a stroll through Poe’s Enchanted Garden. The garden is modeled after Poe’s poem entitled To One in Paradise. What better place to propose to the love of your life with a gorgeous vintage engagement ring?
For those whose taste for beauty is more refined, there is the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This museum boasts an eclectic array of exhibits to appeal to anyone interested in art. The two of you will not find a dull moment as you wander the halls discovering unique beauty and creativity at every turn. Enjoy a decadent meal for two at the fine-dining establishment within the museum, Amuse Restaurant. The only difficulty you’ll have is choosing on exactly which spot to pop the question. On the patio in front of the water feature, on the expansive lawn, or in front of your favorite exhibit. Whichever you choose, your beloved is sure to be delighted when you present the magnificent antique Knox Jewelers engagement ring that is rivaled only by the beauty of the art around you, and the love of your life standing before you.
