PW Reader Ring: Jaclyn & Greg!

Jaclyn's ring!

Jaclyn’s ring!

The couple: Jaclyn Rosenberg and Greg Rubin from Elkins Park.

The ring: My ring has a cushion-cut center diamond with a diamond halo, set in a white-gold band with diamonds. It’s everything I could want and more!

My sister and I went ring shopping a few months before I got engaged, and I absolutely fell in love with this ring at Steven Singer Jeweler. Little did I know that my fiancé was going back there with my sister a few days later to get a ring—but he upgraded it with a bigger center stone than the one I originally saw! While I never left him hints, my sister knew exactly what I wanted and he was smart enough to use that when he decided to shop for a ring.

The proposal: Greg took me to Rotten Ralph’s, where we had our first date, and when we were outside, he said, “Here on this corner is where you hailed a cab to go home after our first date, and I didn’t know if I should kiss you, or hug you, or what—but I knew that I would come back here to decide what I wanted to do, and I decided that I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”

Then he got down on one knee and proposed while a photographer snapped pictures of the whole thing. After I stopped crying and said yes, he took me inside the bar to a private room where our close family and friends were waiting—having watched the whole proposal—and we were able to spend the afternoon celebrating with them.

The band: We are still in the process of planning and haven’t given our bands a ton of thought—but I am pretty sure I’ll want a diamond band that matches my engagement ring, and fits underneath it.
