My boyfriend of 3 years just proposed on July 4th! He took me on a hot-air balloon ride. It was beatiful! And so is the ring!! Emerald cut .88, E, VVS2 with a custom setting in 18k wht gold. Blue saphires bezel set on both sides.

Beautiful! Hot air balloon ride--inventive! Good thing he didn't drop it over the side while he proposed!

Very Art Deco--simple, yet striking. That's sure to be a conversation piece.

Funny you should mention that! He struggled getting the ring box out of his pocket when it "accidentally" flipped out of the basket(in air!) After having the entire balloon (11 people) in disbelief he pulled out the real box with the ring in it. I have to admit, he had me for a minute...

I helped design the ring with the help of my friend's mother who is in the jewelry business. I didn't get to see the finished product, though, until he proposed. Needless to say, my breath was taken away.

BTW thank you everyone for the warm wishes! Here are a couple of pics from the day! The first pic is of me burying my head into his shoulder (couldn't stop crying) and the second is with our pilot.

Cute!! I love the idea.

Niki I would have decked him a good one (after the crying of course) for making your heart stop with the 'faux fumble'!! Men!
