“Our love started out as a friendship for 7 years and blossomed into a story-tail romance overnight! We took our passion for culture, food and adventure and traveled the world together as best friend crazily in love! Both having Italian backgrounds, we recently went to Italy for the first time together. On our second night stay in Rome I was just finishing my makeup while listening to the clinking of the dishes and sounds of laughter from the cafe below when my boyfriend said he was going downstairs to grab a cappuccino.Our room had these amazing floor to ceiling French doors that perked over the cobbled stone side street cafe! It was a dreamy spot to sit and just listen to the sounds of Rome. I was just about done with my mascara when I heard Anthony call my name from the window. I walked over to the balcony going with the thought that he was going to ask me if I wanted a cappuccino and when a fought threw the wind blowing curtain my forever was on one knew. “I love you sooo much, I want to spend my life with you. Will you marry me! They say..when in Rome!!” #stonefoxrings
“He designed this black diamond ring for her. They went with some friends to see her boyfriends best friend play a sold out rock concert, in Toronto. They where back stage watching, with 14,000 fans in the audience. The rocker thanked everyone for their support…especially that of his best friend. He called out his best friend to come to the stage…who in turn called her out in front of the mass of fans. He got down on one knee & professed his love and popped the question. She immediately said, “SHUT THE FUCK UP! SHUT THE FUCK UP!” Then she said yes & threw her arms & legs around him!!! She was wearing a leopard print sweater & ha purple hair…so when she went to the bathroom to collect her thoughts—EVERYONE recognized her from the jumbo tron!! She kept getting slow claps from strangers while she made her way backstage.” #stonefoxrings
“We met as wilderness guides working at a summer camp during college. We had been dating only two months when we knew we wanted to wed and be together forever. Because we were so young, our parents weren’t exactly on the same page- they wed in their late 30s. My mother in particular was quite skeptical having been engaged once before she married my father. We patiently waited a year hoping they would grow privy to the idea. That August, the two of us just completed a two week hiking trip with college kids in the woods. The day after everyone left, he told me to put on a pretty frock and whisked me away from the camp. 4 hours of driving later to a “special spot”- I knew what was coming: But instead of bliss, I had an emotional breakdown (probably because I had only slept 2 hours) and irrationally told him he deserved someone better and that I didn’t want to get engaged. Many tears later, I was convinced I ruined his perfectly planned day. But, being the amazing man he is, he comforted me, forgave me and told me to trust him. He blindfolded me and told me we were going to start over. When the car finally stopped, I heard the waves crashing- I couldn’t believe it! He brought me to the shore of gorgeous Lake Superior! He took off my blindfold and had prepared a romantic picnic – wine and cheese and petit fours. He then told me he loved me no matter my mood and got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever- WITH MY MOTHER’S RING! I was blown away! She had grown so fond of my man that she gifted one of her rings to him to give to me! We watched the sunset over the vast lake as happy as could be.” #stonefoxrings
“He’s been working in Africa since November 2012 and comes home every 4-5 months for a two-week vacation. The most recent trip, I was anticipating a proposal and even got a manicure (which I never do) because I just KNEW this time would be it! But on his final day, when I dropped him off at the metro so that he could go to the airport and head back to Africa, I thought, “Oh well. Maybe next time.” I cried and cried when he left, as I always do. But what I didn’t know, was that while I was miserably on my way to work, he was in fact headed back to my house! At the end of my work day, I walked into an exam room to see my last patient. But it wasn’t a patient after all. It was my boyfriend, on one knee, with my dream ring, asking me to marry him! Naturally, I said of course because there’s no one else in the world I’d rather spend my life with. Eight years down, forever to go!” #stonefoxrings
“They were high school sweethearts who spent the last decade going through the highs and lows of life. It wasn’t always easy but they always found their way back to each other. This year they began sharing their first home together. And naturally started browsing for rings. She knowing that she would say yes no matter what he gave her, yet he knowing that she deserved a ring as unique as her, a custom ring was the only way to go. She knew it was in the works, but not much else. Once he received the finish product, he kept the ring a secret for 4 days, allowing time to ask her brother for permission. Then early on a Saturday morning he took her up to the pond where her father’s and brother’s ashes are spread and got down on one knee (stumbling down to both) and asked her to marry him. Before a yes was even said, she tackled him in a whirlwind of kisses. This stunning ring is yellow gold, with an antique center diamond, surrounded by ten round diamonds, signifying their ten years together. A one of a kind ring for a once in a lifetime love.” #stonefoxrings
“After 5+ years of dating, my guy finally got the courage to ask my Dad for his permission. Dad had a long standing obsession with health and fitness and my guy couldn’t get a word in about asking for my hand after Christmas dinner. That was the last day I was able to see my Dad. He died unexpectedly a few days later. While we were in the hospital room, my now fiance asked my Mom for my hand in my Dad’s presence. A few months later, he asked me to go with him to shoot an assignment (he is a photojournalist). I waited in the car until he asked me to come look at something. He flipped his camera my way and a picture of my ring was on the screen and he was down on one knee. It was perfect.” #stonefoxrings
“They met in college and instantly bonded over their love of music. They were from different parts of NY state, so after college they decided to stay in the area and build a new life together. When her mom and sister were visiting, he sent them out for a day of shopping and manicures. When they got back to the house, he had covered the place in flowers and candles and their favorite my morning jacket song was playing in the background. He was on his knee in the doorway with their American Bulldog, Gideon, next to him, who had a sign around his neck “mom, will you marry dad” – afterwards he told friends and family: “Almost 6 years ago, I fell in love with the most wonderful girl in the world. 6 years later she’s even more wonderful and beautiful than when I met her.” #stonefoxrings
“My husband’s name is Andrew Williams. He is from a small town in Georgia called Monroe, which is also where my mom grew up. She went to high school with Andrew’s parents and my family stayed friends with the Williams for a long time. Both families spent the summers at Lake Burton in the North Georgia mountains, so I would see the Williams most every summer. Because I was always shy, I never really became friends with Andrew or his siblings, but we always knew who each other were. Flash-forward to my freshman year at Auburn University, move-in day: To my surprise, Andrew’s cousin, Georgia, was my dorm suitemate! We became fast friends and when it came time for Georgia’s wedding on May 7, 2011 in Highlands, NC, I was there… dateless…. and so was Andrew. Andrew’s parents are so great and so much fun- they immediately tried to get us out on the dance floor. It worked! We danced and laughed and never wanted to say goodnight. Three exciting years of long distance dating later, Andrew proposed by the lake at his family’s farm in Madison, GA. We got married about a week ago, April 26, 2014, on a perfectly magical day! It had been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to get married at my grandparent’s antibellum home in Augusta, GA. Being from Augusta, I spent a lot of time there as I grew up and always admired the southern charm that the house possessed. My wish came true when I was marriend on the front steps of the beautiful home on the most beautiful day of the year. Not a cloud was in the sky! Birds were chirping and a light breeze was blowing- just magical. The reception was in an all white draped tent off to the side of the house. The most special part of the night was when my 87 year-old grandfather sang Bing Crosby’s “You Must’ve Been a Beautiful Baby” as I danced with my father. He might have been the real star of the night.” #stonefoxrings
“I gave birth to our daughter December 17th, 2013. A week later on Christmas morning, I woke up to this gorgeous 1930s Art Deco ring gently placed around my sleeping baby’s tiny fingers and my love asking “Will you marry us?” We hugged, cried and gazed out our beautiful baby girl still high from her birth and all the love we found. The moon stone is the ring my parents eloped to Las Vegas with in their early 20s. A constant reminder that unconditional love really does exist.” #stonefoxrings
“We were fixed up by mutual friends. He is a model scout and she is a connector of sorts so I figured I was in good hands. When I saw him for the first time, I thought, oh no, def not gonna happen. Handsome, tall, shirt tucked in, no no. After 4 hours of talking and walking, I knew somehow he was different. The old tale of “when you know, you know” was no longer a tale. 8 months later we were on a plane heading towards California to visit his parents and he seemed really fidgety. All of a sudden, the flight attendant starts making an announcement. My heart sank into my stomach, this was going to be the moment. “Ladies and Gentlemen, we are sorry for this interruption, but the woman sitting in seat 15F is about to become a fiancé. The women next to me started freaking out,”that’s you, that’s YOU, she said. I picked my head up from out of my hands and he was sitting there, shaking, with the ring in a box. “Will you spend the rest of your life with me, is what he said. I of course said YES. He designed the ring with my jeweler. He said, he didn’t want to buy an antique, because that would be someone else’s story, he wanted to create something new so that we could begin our own story together. Married 7 years in July with 2 spectacular kids.” #stonefoxrings
