Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world–and spring happens to be one of the best times to visit the City of Love. In Spring, the weather is lovely and Paris is bustling, but the city is also less crowded than it is during tourist-heavy summer. 

The Eiffel Tower (or a place with a view of the Eiffel tower) is a classic Parisian proposal spot. We also recommend considering one of Paris’s beautiful city gardens, such as Luxembourg Gardens or Tuileries Garden. These gorgeous gardens have Parisian charm, natural beauty, and a serene atmosphere. 

Capture the elegance of Paris with this art deco inspired ring from the Lori collection. With curving band details reminiscent of the Eiffel tower’s elegant shape, it’s a ring that will truly capture your love story. 


Napa Valley

It also happens to have a thriving hot air balloon scene, giving you the option of proposing on a hot air balloon ride. If you’re looking for a romantic proposal idea that’s sure to thrill, popping the question while taking in breathtaking views from a hot air balloon is an ideal choice. 

This nature-inspired design from the Dahlia collection calls to mind the beauty of Napa Valley’s meticulously maintained vineyards. Featuring perfect symmetry and beautiful detail, this engagement ring will be an heirloom right from the start.

Maui is covered in crystal clear beaches and lush tropical landscapes, so you have no shortage of beautiful backdrops to choose from for your proposal. Consider proposing on the beach at sunset, where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the ocean as it’s bathed in warm golden light. Keep it intimate and private by having it be just the two of you, or coordinate with a proposal photographer that can capture engagement pictures once the special moment begins.

This bohemian ring from the Dahlia collection is a gorgeous, whimsical choice for a Hawaiian proposal. This ring’s leaf accents and floating center stone combine to create the impression of a glittering diamond pineapple.
