Sylvie Bride Spotlight: Daniela B.

Sylvie Bride Spotlight: Daniela B.

A huge congratulations is in order for our Sylvie Bride, Daniela B! This engagement in particular is quite special to us, as Daniela is an employee of Sylvie Collection! We couldn’t be happier for you, Daniela—congratulations to you and your fiancé Todd!

How They Met

Todd and I met at a marketplace located on a classic New England Green in Guilford, Connecticut. I was sitting in a bar sipping a cappuccino and people watching, when he sat down next to me with his coffee. We were both silent for about 20 minutes, and you could cut the energy with a knife! I decided to break the ice, and after an hour of conversation he excused himself to go back to work.

A week later, I  was on a business trip and staying up late working in my hotel room. All of a sudden, I received an email from Todd! He had somehow discovered my art website, and took the time to cut and paste the pieces of art he liked most and critique each one… He wrote a full-page email! I was not only surprised that he had found my site, but also amazed that he had written such a detailed note.  He concluded the email by asking me on a date!

Our first date was a magical lunch at a vineyard, and I pretty much knew he was the one right then and there!

 The Proposal

I come from a large Italian family. My grandmother is such an important person in my life, and my aunts, uncles, and cousins mean the world to me. I always envisioned them being present at my proposal, and that’s exactly what Todd made happen! He waited until a family event after Christmas, and proposed in front of my whole family. It was very special, and I am so happy that my children were there to be a part of it!

The Ring

We purchased the ring at Rumanoff’s in Hamden, Connecticut. It was such a smooth process, and  truly wonderful working with their staff.

My ring is the S1511, a unique diamond engagement ring with marquise milgrain detail. I absolutely love anything vintage-inspired, and when I first saw the Sylvie Collection, I fell in love with their modern vintage collection. The rings are feminine, classic, and unique! I truly cherish my ring because it’s not something everyone has, and it is timeless!

I also love that my ring can be easily paired with Sylvie Collection stackable rings. I can’t wait to create playful new looks with them alongside my engagement ring!

Congratulations again, Daniela and Todd!
