Holly and Jayke

Holly and Jayke

Jayke and I met in college. He was playing for the UNK Baseball team and I had quite a few mutual friends on the team so I attended quite a few of the games. One night at a baseball party, I saw him walk in the door and remember mentioning to a friend that I thought he was good looking. Of course that friend had to go and tell him and make things really awkward. Jayke was super shy at the time so he kept to himself most of the night. It took a typical party beer pong game for him to actually start talking but of course I beat him and he didn’t like that too much. That night he had asked for my number and of course I was excited. I had called my sister and told her that I had met my future husband and her advice to me was to marry that boy. After that night we continued to talk and hangout and 4 years later we are planning our wedding.

Troy and Haley

Troy and Haley

Haley and Tory have quite the story. Troy came in and picked out a 100% custom designed ring and here is their proposal story as told by Haley: “I live in Northern CO close to the Front Range with my parents when I am not in college, so Troy and I normally try to go up to the mountains during the summer when he comes and visits.

Well on May 29 during Memorial Day weekend, he took me up to an area around Estes, and we went shopping around Estes and he took me to a wine tasting place up there. After that, we went on a little hike, got some food for a picnic, and set up a small picnic on the side of a mountain across from Longs Peak. We were overlooking a beautiful lake called Lily Lake and having a picnic when he secretly hid his GoPro on some rocks behind us. When I thought it was time to go, instead of us leaving, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!

The GoPro took pictures of it all every 5 seconds or so, so we have all these neat pictures to look back on. I was so excited!” We are very excited to continue working with such a great couple and wish them nothing but happiness going forward!

Merritt and Amber

Merritt and Amber

Amber and Merritt have quite that customer story. They came in and Amber chose a rose engraved solitaire band. Merrit, soon after, came back and hand selected which center stone he wanted to perfect the ring! He chose an oval shaped diamond that would make her slender fingers really stand out in a crowd. We set the stone, got everything ready for him, and he proposed at the Cotton Mill Amphitheater where they had their first date, and their first kiss! How romantic?!?

Derek and Cindy

Derek and Cindy’s Customer Story 

“Derek proposed to me on his birthday.  I had worked all day and when arriving home from work I was getting my dog Taya a treat and when turning around to visit with him I found him down on one knee proposing to me.  I was speechless.  We then proceeded to have a nice dinner together and spent the evening together. “- Cindy
