While summer may be wedding season, it's also just as wonderful a time to take a step toward that special day. Whether you're looking to propose on a beachside vacation, at a family gathering or on a simple and romantic evening out somewhere of particular resonance, there's no finer time than summer – a season brimming with adventure, natural beauty and the exciting air of expectation.
When choosing an engagement ring, you might want to take the occasion into account. Perhaps an emerald stone crowned by diamonds would be a pleasant reminder of a summer picnic proposal – or a sapphire stone indicative of a seaside engagement. Whatever theme you choose for your proposal and your ring, consider looking into antique and estate jewelry. Antique engagement rings are not only beautiful, but unique. Rather than being sold retail in models or styles, they have a life and history of their own. Each one has a story that you will, in turn, add to.
Seize the season – make the leap to a new life together and find the perfect ring and stone for the occasion.
