PW Reader Ring: Christine & Dustin!

Christine's ring!

Christine’s ring!

The couple: Christine Sweeney and Dustin Steerman, from Manayunk.

The ring: My ring is a Henri Daussi Signature cushion-cut with a diamond halo on a diamond band from Benari in Newtown Square.

When my fiance and I looked at rings together, and this one was by far my favorite and stood out from all the others I tried on! About a month later, Dustin went back and purchased the ring to surprise me with during his proposal.

The proposal: Dustin had a business trip to Sweden, so I tagged along, because why not? And he ended up proposing that first night after dinner.

We were in a restaurant right on the harbor, an array of desserts came out along with some champagne, and when I turned around, Dustin was down on one knee with a ring box in hand. I was completely surprised, and couldn’t believe he traveled with the ring in his pocket almost the entire time! After calling our family and friends, we then spent the remaining four days enjoying our engagement together in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The band: We are getting married in October of 2015, so we still have time to look at bands together, but I am considering a complementing diamond band, one that matches my engagement band.
