Real Engagement Stories from Gittelson Couples in Minneapolis
Some couples are polar opposites when it comes to personality, and it can be a great way to balance the perfect ying-and-yang of a long-term relationship. However, some couples are like each other in every way which can be a match made in heaven! This couldn’t be more true for our customers, Jessie and Robby, who were recently engaged and are planning a summer 2017 wedding. Naturally, Jessie’s beautiful engagement ring was hand-picked by her and custom designed by us, Gittelson Jewelers.
Jessie and Robby attended the University of North Dakota when they met. From what we’ve gathered from Jessie, their connection was immediate and electric and they have been together ever since. Now, Jessie is a bit of a planner, and she wanted to have a say in how her engagement ring would look. So, being that she was all the way up north in Grand Forks, ND we began the discussion through email. Based on what Jessie described, we knew a big beautiful round diamond with a shared-prong halo was the ticket, so we pulled a few engagement ring styles aside that matched that description for her upcoming appointment.
The day Jessie came into the store, I felt like we already knew her through our email conversations. But honestly, there was a whole other level to this girl – and I mean this in a good way! Based on our prior conversations, I had a pretty good idea of which engagement ring Jessie was going to like the best, and the minute she slipped the sample on her finger, it was all over – her face lit up like the 4th of July.
Now that we had the setting picked out, Robby received the green light to come into the store and finish the process with us in order to make the date of the proposal a surprise for Jessie. And can I tell you, Robby is just the sweetest! His and Jessie’s personalities are so similar, they were both super excited to be going through this process with us. When our customers are that excited, it makes all of us that much more excited and committed to their relationship and the entire engagement process.
I remember the morning the email came in and Jessie had literally typed in all caps I LOVE THE RING, IT’S PERFECT! Mission accomplished.
A couple of months flew by and Jessie popped into the store to pick up the wedding band her and Robby had picked out for him. She just happened to mention her engagement photos, which are absolutely stunning! Between the two of them, they are in the midst of completing their bachelor’s degrees, starting their first jobs and planning a wedding – but they seem to handle everything flawlessly. Congratulations to the beautiful couple whose love and laughter is infectious. We can’t wait for the wedding!
