Aubrey + Matt
He picked the Ring
Matt picked the ring after carefully looking through many different designs and styles. He knew Aubrey wanted something unique, elegant and classy. Aubrey also wanted a gemstone as the focal point rather than a diamond. This was inspired by married friends she had met in England (one of Aubrey and Matt's favorite places to visit). As they share the same birthday in March, he loved the idea of an aquamarine since it's their birthstone and it also being a hardy gemstone. Matt felt very comfortable with the fact that Brilliant was a local place that would let him be involved in the planning of a very personalized and beautiful ring. He knew what he wanted and they helped make that a reality.
She said yes!
Matt had been planning for several months to propose to Aubrey on their November NYC trip. When they were walking through Central Park with friends, they came to a place in the Great Lawn where there was a beautiful city view. Matt asked if Aubrey would like to take a picture there, and as she was preparing to pose for the picture, he got on one knee. Of course, Aubrey said "YES!" and loved the ring! They celebrated with friends and family in the city with dinner. Later in the month, they also got to celebrate with the rest of their family during Thanksgiving. It was a truly magical and beautiful proposal. Everything from the tiniest detail of the ring to every aspect of their NYC proposal trip was perfect.
