JCK stumbled across a Newsweek magazine article that caught our fancy. In a very touching personal story, Brittney Miller writes of the epic proposal she received from her fiancé, William Hunn—one replete with five engagements rings.
Miller writes that she and Hunn were students at the same college in Atlanta eight years ago; they reconnected via Instagram last July, and a romance ensued. Pandemic-friendly dates—including meeting at a park, going for a hike, or just staying in and watching movies—forged their bond.
On April 4, Hunn invited Miller for a day of wine tasting, and asked her to dress up so that they could take pictures for their families. They ended up taking a helicopter, but instead of heading to the vineyard, they landed on a rooftop, where friends, a photographer, and a videographer were waiting.
“Then he got down on one knee, brought five rings out, and proposed,” Miller wrote.
The couple had been ring shopping to see what was available, and Miller had found four rings that she liked at one jewelry retailer and one more online. “Will ended up working with the jeweler to get the fifth ring made,” she wrote. (Miller did not identify either jeweler.)
“As he proposed, he told me I could try all five if I wanted, or go ahead and pick one,” Miller wrote. “I wouldn’t know what to do with five engagement rings anyway, so I picked one, and of course I said yes.”
We at JCK think this story suggests a brilliant way for jewelers to get involved in a proposal. Provide a customer with several rings—knowing eventually the couple will pick one—and be part of the story they will remember forever.
