On an April afternoon in 2015, with a strong thunder & lightening storm in the background, Jesse Nicholson got down on one knee and asked Karen Day to join him through life's adventures. Jesse, being sentimental and thoughtful, surprised Karen with a vintage engagement ring from Joint Venture Jewelry she had seen months ago and loved... and she said Y-E-S!

Alana and I met one fun-filled and fateful night in February seven years ago, and we have had a solid loving bond ever since. I was up visiting Asheville for the weekend, watching a cover band at a downtown bar when we first struck up a conversation. Although there was an instant connection, we wondered how we’d be able to have a lasting relationship while living four hours apart. At first our...

Jensen and I were friends for around a year before he asked me on a date. We met on a fall retreat through our church. We were actually climbing a mountain with a large group when he slowed down and started talking to me 3/4 of the way up. I eventually joined his small group on Wednesdays and we grew closer as friends.

Some of our earliest memories are playing...

While visiting with family last Easter, after having talked about getting engaged on a couple of occasions, Doug whispered in my ear, "I think it's time to take you ring shopping." Of course I was completely elated and ready to start looking immediately! About a month later, we made our first stop at a large jewelry store, thinking "they'll have everything; we can narrow it down." We left feeling...

It was a very special twist of fate that brought Linnie and Michael together in Raleigh.

After living in Philadelphia for more than 10 years Post College, Michael knew he needed a change and wanted to be closer to family. So he decided to leave his beloved Eagles and Philly cheese steaks behind, pack his bags and drive into the sunset with Raleigh as his final destination.

I had been waiting all week for this day to come but I still had to get through work and then some to make it to proposal time. As with the rest of the week, today was characterized by giddy excitement, gut wrenching anxiety and of course time crawling slowly by. When I got home it was kind of tough to be normal goofy Nick without being over the top super excited Nick. Aileen and I spent...

After looking for months to find the perfect ring, we were so tired of all the brand name stores, with all the same product over and over! It was so refreshing to find Joint Venture Jewelry, a place that had such a great selection of estate pieces. We found not only my engagement ring, but both our wedding bands too!!! Well worth the drive from Charlotte. Every day that I look down...

Scott and I met through Match.com, and were fortunate enough to both walk away from our first date (lunch in downtown Cary) knowing there was something worth pursuing. Our tastes, lifestyle, and how we want our lives to unfold were the real 'match'. I had a feeling he and I were destined. I hoped he felt the same. Needless to say, I was a total waste at work after that date. Daydreaming...

The day after I purchased the ring, I called Kim's brother and asked him for help thinking of a location to propose in Maryland. Kim had planned a trip for us to go to her hometown in Maryland to visit some of her friends. The trip was intended to be a snowboarding trip for me as part of my birthday gift. However, I made other plans and contacted her friends (without her knowledge) to ask for...

Our love story actually began 25 years ago when we were engaged for the first time.  Twenty three years ago we broke up and went our separate ways.  During those years, he always found a way to connect with me every 6 or so years…  Then last April my true love found me via Facebook!

When I saw him again for the first time (May 20, 2014), my heart was beating so fast....

Like all good love stories, Danny & I met on Match.com. We knew from the start our connection was special and our interests paralleled like no one else we’d ever met.

Our first date lasted an incredible 11 hours!  On August 15th, 2009, we met near my apartment in Chicago, Illinois (don’t worry, I didn’t let him in!).  It started with a train ride to downtown… then a walk...

Congrats to Scott & Lynn on their recent engagement! Scott popped the big question on Saturday, November 29th at Sunset off of Blue Ridge Parkway at romantic Raven's Rock Lookout. Of course, Lynn said yes!

Scott brought Lynn into Joint Venture Jewelry to find the perfect engagement ring. We love when couples come in and shop together. Lynn couldn't stop...

I knew the moment Risa took the Alexandrite out into the sunlight, and I saw her smile shining as bright as the stone itself, that this was the ring for her! We just didn't love the setting. I then worked with Donna and Jen to use the Alexandrine from an out-dated yellow gold setting and customize it into something more Risa's style!

From the moment I met Christopher, I knew we would spend the rest of our lives together! I also knew when it was time to find "the ring,"I didn't want a traditional diamond engagement ring.

My heart was set on an aquamarine for my engagement ring, since my mother and grandfather were born in March. There was no doubt, aquamarine was perfect for me! After some online searching, I found...

Jess and I met and started dating in college. We planned a trip back to the area over Memorial Day Weekend, so I decided we should spend a day and a night in the town where we went to school, the perfect place to propose!

In the morning we went kayaking on The Hudson River and fantasized about one day buying a house right on the riverbank. Afterwards, we got sandwiches at one of our...

Joey and Joy first met in college as Joy was about to go on a terrible first date with one of Joey's friends; Mack. Needless to say, Mack and Joy didn't make it past a first date. Joey and Joy had the faint understanding that their worlds would never be the same shortly after their introductions. Joey, the fatalist, thought Joy might someday be a Super Hero who could ultimately be his...

Nick and I met in the Fall of 2007 at UNC Chapel Hill. I was joining a Service Fraternity, and Nick happened to be the president of the club that year.  The very first informational meeting was in a lecture hall on campus called Murphy 116.  In that room, Nick and I laid eyes on each other for the very first time...

And on November 8, 2013, 6 years...

I knew I wanted to marry Ashley very early on in our relationship. I always thought the saying, "when it's right, you'll know" was cliché, but it couldn't have been truer for me. Within a month of dating, I knew, and it was nothing like what I expected. But it was amazing. It was easy and it just felt right being with her. 

I introduced her to my parents a couple of weeks later and...

On Sunday October 29, Lori, Randy, Jonathan, Lauren, Raven and myself were all eating breakfast and talking at our kitchen table. I had planned on proposing at my sister's house, but those plans had fallen apart.

I had posted on Facebook earlier that morning stating, "Will she say yes?" with a picture of the engagement ring. My phone kept going off with notifications, so I...
