People seem to favor an understated elegance for their engagement rings in Philadelphia. They prefer round diamonds in the colorless to near colorless range..
Though Philadelphia is affectionately known as "The City of Brotherly Love", "City of Love" might be a more appropriate nickname, since the city is jam-packed with scenic places to ask for that special someone's hand in marriage. One of Philly's best kept secrets and a favorite spot for a romantic proposal is the Whispering Benches along the winding banks of the Schuylkill River. There's also the quiet and peaceful beauty of the rose gardens in Morris Arboretum. Nothing seems quite as apropos as taking a knee at the aptly named Love Park. While history buffs will fall in love with the idea of making their own history and proposing on the grand steps at Independence Hall.
