The holiday season is my absolutely favorite time of the year, because not only is it a time for celebration of the holidays, it’s also the most popular time for engagements! My husband proposed to me during the holidays- December 23rd to be exact- and so I guess you could say that holiday proposals have always had a special place in my heart. So in honor of my own Christmas engagement 10 years ago (OMG, what?!), I’ve teamed up with Macy’s, using one of their Star Signature Diamond engagement rings to create a few proposal ideas for those of you who are planning on proposing for Christmas!
Christmas Tree Ornament
This can take place at either a Christmas tree farm (as seen here), or on your own Christmas tree! You can hang the ring on your tree with a ribbon, and add an optional ornament that says “Marry Me?”. Perfect for the Christmas tree loving couple!
Stocking On Christmas Morning
There’s nothing better than finding something fun inside your stocking on Christmas morning, and I know a box with a gorgeous ring inside would be just about every gal’s dream! Make sure you’re ready on bended knee once she realizes what is inside!
Nested Gift Boxes
This one might be my favorite! Use gift boxes of various sizes, going from larger to smaller, with the ring box as the very last box! You can go as large as you want- my husband actually went SUPER big and had my ring box inside of a patio furniture box (yes, I wanted patio furniture, but a ring was way better)!
The ring that is showcased in all of the ideas is a stunning round solitaire of Macy’s Star Signature Diamond. A diamond of exceptional brilliance and beauty, it’s a diamond that has been developed exclusively for Macy’s. Each Macy’s Star Signature diamond is masterfully cut with 73-facets (traditional number of facets is 58) to maximize its inner light and sparkle. And staying true to it’s name, you can see an 8-point star in the round and princess shaped Macy’s Star Signature cuts. And now for the “stats”: This diamond is near colorless (minimum 1 color), has received a Very Good cut grade, has a Minimum I1 clarity, and is Conflict-Free.
All of the designs featuring Macy’s Star Signature Diamond are absolutely stunning! A few of our favorites…
