When it comes to love, we believe everyone has a soulmate – that special, perfect someone who's somewhere in this crazy world looking for them. No matter how long it takes for your paths to cross, you instantly recognize the moment a person is meant for you. It feels like all the pieces start to fall into place, and all the time you spent waiting will finally feel worth it.
For Robert, that's exactly what he felt when he met Monica for the first time.
"We knew each other through a mutual friend for years, but neither of us thought of crossing the line because of our friendship." – Robert
As the couple spent more time together and grew closer, Robert knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Monica. But as a merchant mariner at sea, it was a difficult task to see diamonds in-person. So, he reached out to our stellar team at Brian Gavin Diamonds and enlisted our help in finding the perfect ring for the woman he has waited for his entire life.
"Although I was uneasy about buying a diamond online, Jamie was patient and reassuring about the entire process. Jamie answered MANY emails and guaranteed me that the diamond would be magnificent and stunning." – Robert
After many ongoing conversations with Jamie and our diamond experts, Robert decided on a breathtaking custom engagement ring that best reflected his future fiancée's personality and preferences. With a beautiful split shank with diamonds surrounding the band, we're not surprised that Monica said yes to Robert and their new life together!
"The ring is beautiful and did not disappoint. The Brian Gavin team went above and beyond." – Robert
As Robert arrived home from his most recent 120-day tour on a ship at sea, Jamie made sure the ring was shipped to Robert & Monica's house in Las Vegas, NV. The very next day, Robert & Monica went down to the Colorado River – right below the Hoover Dam – and started taking pictures. After ten attempts to set the camera timer and run out into the river where Monica was standing, Robert had the timing down to ask the all-important question.
After a joyful "Yes" in the middle of a river, Monica stood beaming, star-struck by the beauty of the ring Robert had designed just for her.
