Vintage Cabochon Sapphire and Diamond Cluster Ring in 18k Gold and Platinum

He left a note for her, on red paper that smelled of jasmine. It was a picture of the willow tree where they first met each other, at the town park, with the time ‘7 pm’ written next to it. This wasn’t an unusual thing, he liked to leave little clues and letters for her. She liked filling in the blanks and discovering what he was hiding. A snowflake fell on her freckled nose as she waited for him at their spot. She checked her watch and it read “6:58 pm”. In the distance, she heard music from a violin begin to play. Exactly two minutes later he rode up on a horse driving a white carriage with red velvet seats. He jumped down and ran to her, watching her eyes widen, her face excited and curious. He grinned mischievously and gave her his arm to link with hers. He led her to the carriage and before getting on, he bent down on one knee. He asked if she would be interested in his shenanigans for the rest of her life. He pulled out a blue sapphire ring surrounded in diamonds, and looked into her eyes. Breathlessly and blissfully, she said, “Yes!”
