Get a mug with a “Will you marry me?” text on its inside bottom and fill it up with this favourite beverage of theirs. Make a cute latte foam heart to add an extra touch. Remember, for them, it will be like one of those regular latte sessions of yours so keep calm and act all natural while you patiently wait for them to finish the drink. After reading the text, when they look at you for an explanation, they will see you poised, down on one knee with a ring in your hand, waiting for their answer.

While trick or treating – Take your significant other trick or treating in your neighbourhood. But before going, you’ll have to make some arrangements. The last neighbour you visit should be one of your friends or someone you both know well. Get both of yours parents to this person’s house. Give a note that reads “Will You Marry Me?” to the parents and ask them to hand it to your boo when you knock at their door. When your partner turns towards you with a shock, they’ll see you down on one of your knees with a ring in your hand. There goes your super adorable proposal.

Haunted House – Is visiting the Haunted Houses one of your Halloween rituals? This year, make it even more special by proposing to them after a good scare at a favorite haunted house. Gather your family and friends and ask them to wait outside the fright place with a “Will you marry me?” poster in their hand. After coming out, while your soulmate is still recovering from the haunted house’s scary experience, they’ll be shocked to see some familiar faces with the poster. That’s when you go down on one of your knees and pull out the ring from your pocket.

While they are busy admiring the beauty of the place, you quickly slip away to bring that special jack-o’-lantern you made for them. Realizing you are not with them, they’ll look around for you and will suddenly find you standing in a corner with a “Will you marry me?” carved jack-o’-lantern in your hand.

Halo Engagement Rings

A halo setting features a center stone, which can be either a diamond or a colored stone, encircled by twinkling small diamonds. Halo engagement rings can feature a center diamond of any shape, however round, square, and oval diamonds are the most popular.  The outline of small diamonds can also be of any shape but round and square are the most popular.

With so much customization and sparkle, halo engagement rings have become the preferred choice of brides-to-be. The unique thing about halo settings is, a smaller center diamond creates an illusion of a larger size center diamond, adding more sparkle, while a larger center diamond creates a striking balance of being both delicate and bold.

There are endless ways of customizing halo engagement rings. You can add double row of diamonds to add double sparkle; this setting is commonly known as a double halo. Choosing right setting for your halo will make lot of difference in how your ring will look. A prong setting (classic setting) or bezel setting goes well with halo. One of our designs includes pink gold weaving around the center to create an unconventional look. Our split shank halo engagement ring can be customized with two-tone gold to give it a distinct look.

Solitaire rings with a big center rock are every bride-to-be’s fancy but not everyone can have it; a halo engagement ring does the trick and provides a bigger and bolder look with a smaller diamond.
