National Proposal Day: Kristen and Tommy

These days, there seems to be a special day to celebrate almost anything you can imagine: National Donut Day, National Puppy Day, and National Best Friends Day, to name a few. However, here at Blue Nile, one of our favorite days to celebrate is March 20: National Proposal Day.

This year, we are sharing three adorable proposal stories from our very own Blue Nile customers. Perhaps these stories will even inspire you to pop the question yourself.

First up, we have Kristen and Tommy.

In Her Words:

The Proposal: My fiancé and I planned a two-week getaway to Ireland this past spring. It started in Dublin and we travelled all along the coast touring the entire country. We rode horses on the beach, went mountain biking in Killarney National Park, kayaked with dolphins in Dingle Bay, and stayed at several historic castles to name a few of our amazing experiences. On the tenth day, we took a boat out to the Skellig Islands off the west coast of Ireland and hiked to the very top. There, surrounded by wild puffins and our new Irish friends, Tommy got down on one knee and proposed with the ring of my dreams. It was one of the greatest moments of my life…

Cushion Halo Diamond Engagement Ring in Platinum

The Ring: I had mentioned to Tommy the types of ring styles I liked and asked his opinion on some. I was always interested in a large center diamond with a halo setting and a diamond band. I also showed him a couple Pinterest photos and from there Tommy did his research to make sure he was getting the perfect ring for me from a reputable, well established company.

He worked very closely with Blue Nile on my ring and we are planning on getting our wedding bands from you as well. My fiancé said his overall experience was very professional and easy. Within a short amount of time with the Blue Nile consultant he was working with, he found the exact ring he was looking for.

The Wedding: Tommy and I will be getting married at The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Virginia on September 15, 2018. The venue is a gorgeous resort hotel nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
