I have a new favorite bling junkie Instagram account and it's @wifeyofficial and if you are not following this account you should be! Greta who runs Wifey Offical (how cute is that name?) is a doll and she rocks some serious bling so I knew we had to get the download on her engagement for Engagement Ring Exposes here on Gem Hunt. Here are all the details on her stunning ring!
Let’s start romantic — tell me about the proposal?
We had just got back home from a holiday last summer. We were back in Stockholm and I had so many things to deal with before going back to work so when he asked me out to dinner as a last day of vacation-thing — I was split but since we had to eat anyways I said okay since I thought we were heading to the restaurant right around the corner from where we live.
Little did I know he had booked a table at the hotel that would later become “our” hotel. We got ready and as we got out on the street he said, let’s go to the hotel instead of the local diner! As we walked the 10 minutes it takes, I started to realize this was not a normal Sunday evening. We sat down in the totally empty bar, being one of the last summer weekends, and ordered a glass of champagne, started talking about the summer and after a moment his glass was empty, and I was wondering why he was so thirsty. We continued talking about the summer, everything we did and how amazing it had been.
In the middle of all this, he excused himself and said, wait one minute babe! Got up and walked by me. I reached for my phone as I thought he went to the loo or something. After a second, I felt a kiss on my cheek, turned around to see him on his knees next to me. After that it was all “yes yes yes!!!!” and “oh my god! I can’t believe it! It’s so perfect!” 10 minutes later we were having desserts on the balcony of the room drinking a huge amount of champagne.
What is the center stone?
It’s an antique OEC (Old European cut) diamond.
Were you involved the process of picking out the ring?
I actually got a diamond eternity band as the engagement ring, round cuts set in white gold, as he knew I would want to be part of the process of finding the one. We found the perfect ring one month prior to the wedding date at a vintage boutique!
Why do you love your ring?
Our last names initial is V, and I designed it so the prongs on the ring makes the basket to a V-shape from the front and back. It’s just that something extra I was looking for, and every time I see it, it reminds me of him and the small family of just the two of us that we have created.
What’s your favorite way to take care of your ring?
I use an ultrasonic cleaner. If I'm in a hurry, I use the softest toothbrush I've found and gently clean it with soap. I take them all of before showering, applying lotion or make-up in the morning.
