love stories: Michelle and Hayley

Tell us about the proposal!

On our third date, Hayley and I went to Matilda Bay for a picnic. It became a special place for us, and we went a few more times throughout our relationship. After I sold my house so we could buy together, I told Hayley we were going out to celebrate and booked lunch at the Matilda Bay restaurant. We enjoyed a few drinks with our lunch then sat on the grass with a glass of champagne overlooking the water. That’s when I pulled out the ring and asked Hayley to marry me! 

Why did you choose Hope Diamonds?

A friend recommended and spoke highly of Hope Diamonds, having been there herself. After speaking to Julie and building a good rapport with her, I knew Hope Diamonds was going to be able to design the ring that I was looking for.

How did you choose your engagement ring?

On the phone and over email, I talked to Julie about the type of ring I was looking for. Julie gave me guidance as to what would be suitable, stones she had available and what would fit within my budget. I made lots of suggestions but also spoke of things I did not want. When the ring was designed, all of my requests were taken into consideration and I loved the first design.

Your experience at Hope Diamonds?

Hope Diamonds were extremely easy to work with. I initially called and queried their processes and prices; Julie was very helpful and realistic. After finding they could do what I wanted within my budget and timeframe, I emailed Julie with my requests as well as photos of rings to be used as inspiration when designing Hayley’s ring. Not long after, I was sent some CAD drawings and loved the first design. The first time I went into the office was to pick up the ring about a month after the initial phone call. 

We’d love to see if we can help with your dream engagement ring. Get in touch with us for an obligation free chat or simply book an appointment.
