T&H Couple: Clare & Scott

Posted on


Congratulations to our latest T&H Couple, Clare & Scott! This sweet duo was engaged with one of our most special and historic rings ever, the Boulder Creek! The ring is from the Victorian era, and hallmarks on the inside allowed us to date the production to exactly 1858 in Birmingham, England. How cool is that?! We loved what Scott had to say about his special proposal, so we'll let him take it from here:

We met in college but didn't start dating until Clare had graduated and I was finishing my senior year.  A romance that began by watching a movie in West Philadelphia continued for two years in New York.  Our relationship became a long-distance one when I moved to California, but we managed to spend as much time as we could together, whenever possible in Italy, a place we both study and love.
On May 1st, I ate dinner with a friend at a Chinese restaurant.  The meal concluded with the most precise fortune cookie I've ever seen: "Remember three months from this date.  Good things are in store for you."  Struck by the unusual exactitude, I tucked the fortune in my wallet to be kept for the appointed date but soon forgot about it.  Clare and I had talked about getting married for a while by that point, but I wasn't planning to propose until the next year.  As the summer progressed, waiting seemed to make less and less sense.  By the end of July, I had found the perfect ring that I knew Clare would love.  I made plans to take her on a hike in Redwood Regional Park in Oakland where I would propose.  On August 1, as I was about to get into the car to pick up Clare, I reached into my wallet to get my Zipcar card, in front of which was tucked (much to my surprise!) a small piece of paper with a fantastic message.  We went for a beautiful hike, talked about things big and small, and I asked her to marry me.  Good things were in store indeed.
Congratulations! We are so thrilled to be part of your story♥
