At Forever Artisans, we feature real life stories to inspire your custom design. This is the true story of how Gene and Rosemary designed their dream engagement ring.
We met because of our mutual interest in a couple different musical bands. We had known of each other through the bands’ message boards, but never actually met until 2007 at their annual music festival.
WHERE DID YOUR STORY BEGIN?
We went to Quebec City for New Year’s Eve weekend. We went for a walk (in the blustery and extremely cold weather) before checking in to the Bed & Breakfast- and while walking past the iconic Chateau Frontenac hotel, we stopped at a gazebo by the river. Gene said the most beautiful and sweetest things (typical of Gene on any given day), then got down on one knee and proposed. When he opened the beautiful cloth envelope the engagement ring was in, the ring was not in there. Panicking, we were looking in the snow, thinking it fell. Luckily, it was in his pocket! He proposed again and I said “YES!”

WHAT INSPIRED THE DESIGN?
I had wanted a classic and elegant design, but was discouraged by seeing the common grandiose and busy designs of current trends. I had come across a design that was everything that I wanted...and the artists and jeweler were able to recreate it exactly to my specs and photographs.
DID WE MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
We are beyond thrilled with the finished product. Thank you!
Our overall experience with Forever Artisans has been extremely easy and fun!! Our Design Consultant Missy was extremely easy to communicate with and took the time to happily answer all questions!
