Without deliberately coming across as sexist, these two pages are intended for the gentlemen only. So ladies, look away.
Certain places like Bali seem custom-made for great proposals, thanks to the island’s wealth of naturally romantic settings that are blessed with breathtaking views of rice terraces and spectacular sunsets where couples can be assured of having the place to themselves. With so many places to choose from it becomes increasingly challenging to choose how and where to pop “the question”.
Once you know where you want to be and what to say, there is just one thing left to think about: The ring. So, gentlemen, assuming you want this moment to be special for her, the choice of the ring is important. Luckily, Bali is home to a number of jewellery stores (both local and international luxury brands), and you can never go wrong with household names such as John Hardy, Jemme, and Bulgari.
CORONA PLATINUM ENGAGEMENT RING WITH PAVÉ, GOLD DIAMOND STUD EARRINGS AND PENDANT
Bulgari designer rings are the quintessence of design. Either in plain gold, or crafted with precious stones, diamonds or ancient coins, they combine refined elegance with strong determination. Corona, the Italian word for “crown”, was inspired by the wedding customs of ancient Rome, where the bride, dressed in white and wearing an orange veil, would appear at the altar with a delicate crown of flowers in her hair.
