How did your significant other propose?

Surprised me with a weekend in Aspen at the St. Regis. Even on the drive up, I thought we were going to Moab. He took me to Maroon Bells and made me hike 11 miles before proposing overlooking Crater Lake. It was a beautiful blue sky kind of day!

How did you choose your engagement ring and/or wedding bands? Tell us about the process of designing your rings and about your experience at Ooh! Aah! Jewelry.

My late grandma left me her ring. After a recommendation to go to Ooh! Aah! (I didn't want to work with a large retail store), we worked with Hannah to redesign the ring of my dreams. She had great ideas and was fantastic to work with! Very patient with my fiance during the process and superb customer service. She also designed my bridesmaid jewelry!

What is your advice for others who are looking for their rings?

Come with ideas but often what you think you like is not what you go for. Be open! See what looks good on your hand.
