Proposing is a big task. Going simple is one way, but most proposers try to do something different with theirs. Various techniques, like skywriting or renting out a whole theater, are employed by people to get their loved ones to say yes. Now there is a new way you can propose, that is tailored to this season — a pumpkin-spiced latte ring!
Angelic Diamonds, a UK-based jewelry company, came up with the idea of the world’s first Pumpkin Spice Latte Ring, and has made it into a reality. The ring, inspired by the fall favorite drink, costs $11,300 and is the perfect accessory for you to hold out when you get down on your knee amidst the fall foliage. The ring, true to its name, has many features inspired by the PSL. The center diamond is shaped like a whipped cream dollop, while surrounded by orange sapphires and white diamonds. The stones are set in a cup-shaped claw. Even the rose gold band resembles a pumpkin thanks to the design which features white diamonds, orange sapphires, and emerald stones.
If all this wasn’t enough to get all the PSL-lovers running to get their hands on this one, the company has gone one step ahead and engraved the words ‘Pumpkin Spiced’ inside the band. Even the packaging screams Pumpkin Spice with its orange-colored box and a cardboard coffee cup wrapper. The interior of the box which nestles the fall-inspired ring is scented to remind of the beverage. The crowning glory of all this is the clasp on the ring box, which is shaped like a pumpkin. The seasonal specialty is available for a limited period of time at the company’s Bespoke Design Services. For those looking to go the extra mile, they can also get the ring customized. Adding initials with Pumpkin Spiced seems like a good idea for sure!
With large gatherings prohibited, stay-at-home orders in place, and more and more people canceling their plans, there’s no doubt about the fact that the ongoing pandemic has affected people in several different ways. Yet, have you spared a thought for the couples who were due to get married during this time? While some couples have decided to cancel and rebook for another date, these couples decided to get married online.
Julie Samuels and Ben Schlang
After meeting on a Jewish dating site three years ago, Julie Samuels and Ben Shclang knew that their eventual wedding would be a traditional Jewish affair. So, when they booked their wedding for April 18th, 2020, they couldn’t wait to let the planning commence. Julie bought her dress, Ben bought his suit, and the couple invited their guests to attend their nuptials. However, their plans were stopped in their tracks when the pandemic raged war. Instead of waiting in the wings for the whole thing to be over, Julie and Ben decided to get married over Zoom instead. They were granted a marriage license remotely, they welcomed their family and friends into a Zoom meeting, they wore their wedding clothes, and they exchanged their vows.
Tara Simms and Mark Valenski
Queens couple Tara Simms and Mark Valenski also had to change their plans. They had booked a stunning New England wedding venue for their big day, but they ultimately came to the devastating conclusion that they would have to make a few changes. Without the ability to fly in their family and friends from across the country, they had no option. While the couple hasn’t got married yet, they plan to tie the knot officially on Zoom before having a bigger reception later in the year for their family and friends to enjoy. How cool is that?
In a world where struggles rage on, at least we have love and technology! Would you get married online?
