Edwardian 1.6 carat Square Mine Cut Diamond Ring Antique Engagement Ring
He told her to pack a bag for 3 nights away but wouldn’t tell her where they were going. He flew her over Manchester and Liverpool and out over the Irish Sea, over Dublin and the lush green of the Irish countryside, tinged with a hint of fall color. They landed in Galway and were whisked away by limo and brought across the moat to the gates of Ashford Castle. She sat by a roaring fire and drank a warm rum cocktail smiling to herself. It was just like him, this kind of grand romantic gesture. She didn’t mind, not one little bit.
He handed her a pair of Wellies and a warm coat from a rack by the door and together they wandered into the back garden and along the trails. They went through a stone tunnel and exited into a Secret Victorian Garden laden with the smell of late blooming roses and the buzzing of lazy bees. He slipped an arm around her and stopping, he pulled her into his arms.
“Marry me?” he asked, looking directly into her eyes.
“Of course”. She smiled as he slipped the sparkling diamond onto her finger.

You don’t have to take her to Ireland, you can just ask her in the living room on a Saturday morning. Just to be on the safe side, though, better have a ring like this one.
