As any true romantic will tell you, when it comes to getting down on one knee, it’s not just what you give, but how you propose, that lasts forever.
Ask any fairy tale princess fan and she’ll tell you, it’s the star lit magic carpet rides, grandeur royal birthday balls, perfectly fitting glass slippers and death-defying escapes from evil sea monsters that make an engagement to a Prince Charming truly memorable and legendary.
Think about it.
When was the last time you paid attention to what Cinderella’s engagement ring looked like? Did she even get one?
As far as I can tell, the riveting storyline of the helpless, do-gooder, singing servant- sister-turned-breathtakingly beautiful woman-decked in the most coveted princess dress-only to have it fade away at the stroke of midnight faster than you could say Bippety-Boppety-Boo, is only half of what makes the fairy tale a cult classic. Interestingly enough, none of the unforgettable magic entails the details of THE RING.
In our modern world, the ring is half the story. While we don’t come equipped with enchanted wands that turn the nearest pumpkin into a horse-drawn carriage we can make selecting your dream ring we can prepare you to present YOUR princess with the perfect shiny promise in a box she’s always dreamed of.
Throw all the ‘rules’ you’ve heard about engagement rings out the window.
An engagement ring symbolizes a promise-not a lifestyle.
It does not solely define the relationship.
She is going to LOVE IT, because she loves you.
Simply put, it isn’t just the “bling” that drives a woman from childhood and beyond to want to duplicate a fairytale princess life; it is the concept of defying odds, experiencing extraordinary enchantment, encountering true love and witnessing heroic effort with a prince that we become enraptured with.
(Okay, and the thought of living in a grand palace with lots of pampering isn’t too shabby either.)
As one would imagine, we meet hundreds of charismatic customers throughout the year who carry on the tradition of romanticism and ideals of contemporary fairy tales.
In celebration of making moments of magic, highlighted below, are two of our favorite recently engaged couples that have purchased their beautiful engagement rings from our Cupertino store, allowing us to take part in their Happily Ever After.
Day after day, our staff strives to create Fairy Godmother-like magic for couples and individuals looking to symbolize their commitment with not only rings, but an experience they’ll rave about and never forget. From all of us at Shane Co., congratulations and best wishes to Calvin and Nneka, as well as John and Luisa as they embark on their journeys into a whole new world…

John and Luisa
I was nervous prior to the proposal, as I wanted everything to be perfect. Luisa said she wasn’t expecting it, which made it more exciting. Prior to our visit, I had requested our VIP host to interrupt our dinner at sunset to take some pictures of us on the beach. Before we went back to the table, I told Luisa there was something I wanted to ask her and I got down on one knee. I was very nervous during this exchange as I probably forgot most of the stuff I wanted to say. She was in shock and didn’t know what to say. Luckily after many, many “Oh my gods”, she remembered she needed to give me an answer and it was a YES as I slid the ring on her finger. –John Spilios
