Finding custom engagement rings in Winnipeg is easier than you might think. After all, why stress about where you're going to get engagement rings and wedding bands in Winnipeg when Knox Jewelers will make sure that you have a piece that is of heirloom quality and looks like a wearable work of art?
Now that you know where to get those special pieces of gemstone or diamond jewelery, where do you pop the question? Peg City has a wonderful variety of locations to choose from; everything from festivals, to parks, museums, and romantic hotels. Several interesting festivals are: Festival du Voyageur, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Winnipeg Jazz Festival, the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, and Folklorama, and WSO New Music Festival. The Festival du Voyageur is held during the winter and is a celebration of the fur trade era and the Voyageur’s “Joie de Vivre!” You and your honey can enjoy entertainment, snow sculptures, historic Fort Gibraltar, dog sled races and much, much more!

Another of the many interesting festivals is Folklorama.

Though truly any of these great festivals would be unique, memorable ways to propose to your special someone. When you return to the festival after your big day the wedding bands that you both wear will make you the envy of everyone else attending whichever festival you choose.
Perhaps you're looking for more of a spontaneous adventure, one that's available more than once a year? Head over to The Forks, it's a National Historical Site. This stunning location attracts four million visitors a year. Among many others it features a 30,000-square-foot (2,800 square-meter) skate plaza, a 8,500-square-foot (790 square-meter) bowl complex, the Esplanade Riel bridge, a river walkway, and finally "The River Trail" also holds the Guinness World Record for the longest naturally frozen skating trail in the world!
Another beautiful setting is the Assiniboine Park, an expansive and impressive all-season destination. In the winter, take a trip to the tropics inside the Conservatory. Exotic plants, lush greenery and perfumed air will spark romance.
In the summer, take a trip to the English countryside inside the pristinely manicured English Gardens and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden. Over the years, the gardens have been a popular spot for marriage proposals and weddings, and why shouldn't they be? The gorgeous landscaping will provide the perfect background for pictures after your new fiance says 'yes!'. Just imagine: The scent of fresh air and flowers surrounding you as you present that beautiful engagement ring, the most important piece of diamond jewelery they'll ever get. Make this location extra special by returning here for your ceremony to exchange wedding bands! If you'd rather be able to tell your honey that you have a work of art that was custom made just for them, then lead them inside from the garden to the Pavilion Gallery Museum.
Once inside have them close their eyes so you can "guide them to the piece". Pull out the heirloom quality ring from Knox Jewelers and slip it onto their ring finger. As they open their eyes to see you professing your eternal love you'll see their eyes sparkle even more than the diamonds in their new custom ring.
If you like designing your proposal around the fact that engagement rings and unique wedding bands from Knox Jewelers are works of art the Winnipeg also has several other wonderful museums to go explore.
The Manitoba Museum is the largest museum in the city, and depicts the history of the city and province. The full-size replica of the ship Nonsuch is the museum's showcase piece. This would be wonderful if you and your sweetie are history buffs! Not only are you giving them a work of art but it's the start of a new piece of history too! Engagement rings and wedding bands from Knox Jewelers are made to be heirloom quality so that they can be passed down the generations of your family. Any of the museums you visit will offer wonderful sights leading up to, or after your proposal. The two of you will have a wonderful day full of memories. Some other awesome museums to consider are the Winnipeg Art Gallery, which is Western Canada's oldest public art gallery, founded in 1912 and it is the sixth-largest in the country. The Western Canada Aviation Museum, located in a hangar at Winnipeg's James Richardson International Airport, features military jets, commercial aircraft, Canada's first helicopter, the 'flying saucer' Avrocar, flight simulators, and a Black Brant (rocket) built in Manitoba by Bristol Aerospace. The gemstone or diamond jewelery that you present to your dearest love will sparkle like the stars are resting on their finger and will fit right in with the aerospace theme!
Perhaps a classic evening out, and ending by staying in a luxury hotel would be the right fit for your proposal to you future fiance. Winnipeg's three largest performing arts venues are the Centennial Concert Hall, Manitoba Theatre Centre (MTC) and the Pantages Playhouse. All of these entertainment venues are located downtown. MTC is Canada's oldest English language regional theatre, with over 250 performances yearly and the Pantages Playhouse Theatre opened as a vaudeville house in 1913. After taking in a performance, take your honey back to the Mariaggi's Theme Suites Hotel for a stay in one of their stunning rooms. Once settled into your oppulent suite surprise your true love with a bottle of champagne and perhaps a tasty treat of some sort. When they ask you what the occasion is, get down on one knee, pull out that stunning engagement ring that you picked from Knox Jewelers just for them and say “I ordered the champagne because I'm hoping to have something very special to celebrate with the love of my life, the one I want to spend all the rest of my days with. Will you do me the honor of marrying me?” Surely they'll say yes and you'll spoil yourselves all night while basking in the glow of love. The Mariaggi is also a spa, so perhaps the next morning take your new fiance down for some final pampering before heading out. After you exchange your vows and your unique wedding bands, consider returning here as a great honeymoon destination!
No matter what you choose for your proposal method, be rest assured that Knox Jewelers is here to make sure that you and your special someone have only the highest quality gemstone and diamond jewelery.
