If you are planning an upcoming marriage proposal, you will find a stunning collection of vintage engagement rings in Washington DC. What better place to profess your love to the person with whom you hope to spend the rest of your life. While Knox Jewelers has the custom designs of the century, this patriotic capital city has some the most legendary places to choose from for such an occasion. Not only that, Washington DC is a fabulous place for friends and family to gather in honor of both the country and your lifetime celebration of marriage.
This process starts with a romantic proposal and a stunning diamond ring or band. Plan a custom designed ring that is exquisitely crafted down to the details. Tour the city for the place that says, “It’s perfect.” The cherry blossoms that line the National Mall in Spring are a sight to behold, and you can imagine a spectacular daytime proposal beneath a special tree in front of the United States Capitol. If that isn’t perfect enough, consider the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial to share your intentions. It is the largest and most beautiful of such pools in the state.
