Colleen and Sean both knew in their hearts they had found "the one," and often would talk about spending their lives together. Sean sought out Brian Gavin Diamonds for an engagement ring to embody the four magical years he had spent as a couple with Colleen.
After marveling through the extensive collection of engagement ring styles on the Brian Gavin Diamonds website, Sean opted for a custom platinum three stone, three halo setting with a vividly stunning 1.735 carat Black by Brian Gavin center stone. He included a square halo around the center stone, along with half halos around the side stones – complete with a unique engraving on the inner rim of the platinum band.
With ring-in-hand, Sean planned to surprise his bride-to-be with the proposal of a lifetime.
"I knew I wanted to propose in Kauai," Sean beamed. "We go there every New Year's Eve and I knew it would be the perfect way to ring in 2017."
The beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai has always held a special place in their hearts, and there was no question that they would return to the island for this life-changing moment. Sean arranged for family and friends to be there for the proposal, making the experience even more extraordinary.
"We have family and friends in Oahu," Sean said. "They flew in for the 'New Year,' but little did Colleen know that they were all in on the secret. They were there for the proposal!"
Sean convinced Colleen to get her hair and makeup done for "New Year's Eve," so they could take photos with friends later in the evening. Colleen was picked up midday for her beauty appointments and was unsuspecting of Sean's true plans for the day.
"We were walking on the sands of the North Shore for a while when I noticed all of my family and friends were dressed up down the beach," Colleen described. "As I got closer to where everyone was standing, that's when I saw the photographer and the guitar player playing Train's 'Marry Me' in the background. I finally came up to Sean and I realized he was wearing a Ti leaf – that's when it hit me! He pulled me aside from everyone and we both instantly started crying happy tears. He proposed, hands shaking and all, and he placed the stunning diamond ring on my finger. Of course, I said yes!"
"The ring Sean picked out is so sparkly and gorgeous," Colleen described. "It's definitely one-of-a-kind!"
"I can't wait to come back to beautiful Kauai," Colleen explained. "We've always loved going to Kauai on vacation and now we became engaged on Kauai. It's a no-brainer that we're going to get married on Kauai. I'm so excited to have our reception on the front lawn of my parents' house."
We could not be more thrilled for these two lovebirds and are especially honored to have been a part of their picture-perfect proposal. One of the most gratifying moments for the Brian Gavin Diamonds team is creating a stunning diamond engagement ring like Sean and Colleen's ring that will forever symbolize their love for one another.
