A couple of weeks ago, almost our whole team helped a colleague shop for an engagement ring during lunch break and it was super fun!
There happens to be a lot of jewelleries right next to each other in Tampines mall, so it was easy to go jewellery-hopping and compare and contrast.
After going to 4 different shops where they discussed the 4 C’s of diamonds each time, we became somewhat of an expert in the topic. Lunch and learn? 😂
After all that, I now know what my ideal engagement ring is! So take note, friends, and please inform my future boyfriend about it. 😜
Cut: round (brilliant)
After looking at all the settings, we all concluded that we loved the 6 prong white gold, so I want that now too!
I only want one solitaire diamond with no other surrounding diamonds, please, I don’t like those at all! 😅 I also don’t like very big stones because I don’t normally wear rings as I find them too cumbersome.
But anyway, back to what we were doing. Sorry for getting distracted, LOL.
After looking at all the rings and running all their GIA certificate numbers through our “baseline model,” we narrowed it down to the most ideal ring for the budget, and “Frodo” bought it right then and there.
He popped the question last Friday in Xcape, a real room escape game.
He got his girlfriend’s friends to invite her there and for 30 minutes they pretended to solve puzzles which they already knew how to solve beforehand.
Meanwhile, he had asked for Xcape’s permission beforehand, and one of their guys helped him and his friends set up in the last room.
He said that was they were lighting up the tea candles, he could hear his girlfriend and her friends approaching and they panicked because the lighters had chosen that precise moment to run out of gas. They used the other candles to light up the rest just as they walked in the door.
He had prepared a book of pictures with touching and funny captions for her to read. She teared up a bit at some of them but then the tears did not fall because of the funny ones that made her giggle.
The last page told her to look at the wall behind her were the words “WILL YOU MARRY ME” had been spelled out in glow sticks.
Obviously you know what the answer was!
It’s a really cute idea. I love creative proposals!
He posted this thank you note on Facebook and I laughed when I saw the “fellowship of the ring” part.
I felt so honoured that I was part of it! I really enjoy helping out in surprises!
Congrats to the happy couple!
