Testimonials

Kate & Andy

“Kate had become a fan of the Sylvie Collection designs.  I took full advantage of her Pinterest boards and conversations we had had about rings.” -  

“When I first saw the ring I was not surprised by the style because I recognized it as one that Andy had pointed out to me in the past as one that he really liked.  From that moment I kind of had a feeling that was the ring he would propose with and I was so happy with his choice!"

Kristen + Josh

Lo and behold – Sylvie Collection Style No. SY416. I found it in Tuscaloosa when we went to a store to look at a Scott Kay style also really liked. I leaned over the shiny glass case while we waited for the jeweler to pull the Scott Kay one, and I swear, the Sylvie ring spoke to me. I tried it on and it was a truly magical moment. We decided to sleep over it, but we both knew which one it was going to be. And then, I waited for that 4 word sentence that would changed my life forever…

Katlyn and Kevin

John & Heather

As they say, "Love doesn't make the world go 'round....Love is what makes the ride worthwhile." Our proposal story marks the beginning of our "worthwhile" ride in this game called life and it started with a blast!!

The story starts approximately 3.5 months ago as Heather and I began our adventure ring shopping. Living 2,340 miles apart, we began our search online. After many Saturday afternoons shopping online using FaceTime on our iPhone's, our search narrowed to a ring we found on a Sylvie Facebook post. We had been looking for settings for months. Almost simultaneously as we were FaceTiming, we both nearly said the same words at first sight, "we need to find out more about this ring!"

This led us to the Sylvie Collection website where we were disappointed to find that"our" ring was not there. With no time to waste, we began looking for the closest Sylvie dealer in Idaho.....no dealers. Naturally, we then looked in North Carolina.....bing bing bing, we found one! Excited, I shot an email to the dealer......

Within aday, we heard back. The only caveat….they had never seen this setting by Sylvie. The good news, a Sylvie Representative was visiting Diamonds Direct the following week and he could bring the setting with him. Without a blink of an eye, an appointment was made. Heather and her mother we on their way down to Charlotte to Diamonds Direct. After a few hours looking at many other choices, we both agreed upon the "love at first sight" ring we saw on the Sylvie Facebook site just a week earlier. (So you might be wondering, how did I get to see the ring....well, as you might guess, we Face-timed while she was there trying on rings).

Now that we had decided on a ring, it diluted the "surprise factor" which made my planning just a bit more difficult.....And so our adventure begins........Miami, Florida.

Heather and I have been fortunate to travel to quite a few places over the last few years being apart, but one place we have never been together was Miami.

In my mind, the "perfect storm" was brewing.

1.) Heather loves the beach

2.) She won't be expecting a proposal this soon as the ring "wouldn't be ready" by this time (a little forging of dates on my part ensured that the ring wouldn't be done until mid October....wink wink. Thanks Kristin!)

3.) This particular weekend happened to be the same weekend as my birthday, so I knew she would be thinking about that, not getting a ring.....hmmmm....perfect!

The element of surprise is slowly coming back......this would be a perfect weekend!

The ring arrived the Tuesday prior to my departure on Thursday for Miami. It was such a crazy feeling having the ring "in my pocket." I wasn't sure how I was going to hold out without just asking her as soon as I saw her, but somehow I prevailed and began the planning process. To be honest, I didn't quite have all the details figured out, but I knew as soon as I got there and figured out the "landscape" of where we were staying and things to do, it would all come to me.

"When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

The plan began shaping up very quickly. On Key Biscayne, Miami Seaplane Tours was not far from where we were staying on Ocean Drive. So the story begins......

It was early Saturday morning, September 15th and I had chartered a seaplane for 1hour for an early morning "sunrise" tour. It seemed quite crazy that we were going to get up at 6AM on our vacation to do this tour, but playing the "card" as a SUNRISE tour helped disguise the "real" plan.

Now, prior to our flight, I had spoken with the pilot, Tony, about the plan. We had decided on our destination and decided on a fun little "shake up" during our plane ride.

We hopped into the plane at 7AM and were off before we knew it. The forecast that morning was calling for rain and the clouds were low and there was no sign of the sun. However, at about 7:08AM, out of the thick white clouds, the sun began shine through. Perfect! It was quite relaxing sitting in the back seat of the plane with the comforting hum of the engine, next to the most beautiful, elegant, classy and caring woman I know. Life couldn't have been better at that moment. The plan was to "tour" the area around Miami flying over some of the most beautiful houses Miami has to offer......Lebron James' house, Lil' Wayne's house, Madonna, etc.....all under the beautiful sunrise.

About 30 minutes into the flight, I noticed we were nearing our destination and the fun part starts here. While flying 500 or so feet in the air, SUDDENLY, the engine propeller stops and stalls.....it starts again! Tony purposefully tilts the plane, does a gentle nose-dive and the engine stallsonce again. In much amazement, Heather isn't really reacting too much outwardly, she did have a worried look, but she stayed calm.

Tony comes in over the radio to tell us something is "wrong" with the engine and we need to get the plane down. In a controlled downward "dive", we hit the water with the pontoons splashing and the engine shut off. Atthis point, we are about 50 meters from a small, uninhabited island off the coast of Miami.

"Brum-brum-brum." Tony shakes his head.

"Brum-brum-brum........," the engine is not starting.

Then a third attempt, "Brum-brum-brum-brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr." I looked at Heather in relief.

Tony came over the headphones, "I think we need to get over to this island and see what's going on." Heather and I looked at each other in concern and agreed.

As he pulls up to the island, I can feel a sense of nervousness, but happiness come over me. Little does Heather know, all of the aforementioned details where planned and I was about to ask the love of my life.....TO MARRY ME!!!

I think at this point we can agree her emotions were on quite the opposite end of the spectrum. As we begin to get out of the plane, I secretly hand my phone to Tony to capture the moment. As we step off the pontoon, Heather isholding my hand leading me to the beach. In quick thought, I needed her to somehow turn around....without delay, I "accidently" trip tugging on her hand.....she turns around and we all know how the story ends...……down on one knee, "WILL YOU MARRY ME?!!!"

And to cap things off, that forecasted rainy morning with clouds couldn't have been any more perfect.....as we sit on the sand, water up to our waist, in the background across the sky is a rainbow....I had just found MY pot-o-gold.!

I just celebrated my 15th year at Brown & Co. Frank being the generous employer he is let me choose something from stock to commemorate the occasion. I chose your band.

I am so in love with my platinum Sylvie engagement ring! I saw it in a magazine a few years ago and it was love at first sight. When my fiance and I went ring shopping I walked in with the Style #SY395 written down! I didn't want to see anything else. The jeweler laughed that I was the only person who had ever walked in knowing the style number. Now I can't wait to marry the man of my dreams on our 7 year anniversary in August!

Nothing compares to giving those you love what they deserve. That emotion stays with you. A real feeling of gratitude and accomplishment. I know that for a fact, because on May 28, 2010 I surprised my fiance with a Sylvie Engagement Ring. Initially, I thought there's no way I can afford this piece of jewelry without a loan. Then after research I realized that not only was it affordable, but easily accessible. See currently not many people are aware of Sylvie Engagement Rings, and that's ok because I now know what others feel when they buy an exclusive name brand. My fiance loves her ring, and takes exceptional pride in saying, "It's a Sylvie". A friend of mine asked "How did you find this designer", I replied "You have to be specific about your ring design", to me that's what it's all about. You can't be general, because these are not off the rack designs so specifics are paramount. Overall with the help of my jeweler Emma Parker and Co., Sylvie Engagement Rings made my fiance a very happy woman and me, ultimately a very happy husband to be. I don't work for Sylvie or Emma Parker & Co. I am a real person who made a quality decision in choosing Sylvie Engagement Rings as my designer!

- Amanda Gandolfo

I got engaged last October and not a day goes by that I am not being complimented on my gorgeous Sylvie ring! I love looking at my engagement ring every day and just admiring at how pretty it is! The best is when I'm driving and on a sunny day I get blinded by it's "bling." I am a lucky girl to have such a unique token of love.

Sandra Mazur

My fiance and I got engaged in November. When my fiance opened the ring box, I was speechless; I couldn't take my eyes off of the ring. I love the compliments that I get and the 'Ooh's and Ah's' about how they have never seen anything like it! It's exactly perfect for me. I still can't stop looking at it, its sparkle and uniqueness is so beautiful!!! Thanks for your time to create and design my ring so perfectly.

I am from Alabama and had been in Arkansas on business for a week. Before I left, Kevin, my boyfriend at the time, and I had planned to meet up in Memphis for the weekend and stay at the Peabody Hotel. When I got to Arkansas, my boss told me I wasn't going to be able to leave because we were going to be working all weekend. Sadly, we canceled the hotel reservations. Friday morning rolled around and my boss came in our work room at the hotel and asked if I was going anywhere for the weekend because we were caught up with things and it was okay to leave. I immediately called my boyfriend and told him the plans were back on so we made reservations again at the Peabody. Saturday morning we both drove to Memphis and met at the hotel. We walked around Beale Street that afternoon before taking a nap before our dinner reservations that night. We had a nice dinner and went up to the top of the hotel at the sky level, which overlooked the city. We were talking and looking at the downtown area from above and the next thing I know Kevin was down on one knee. Of course, I said Yes!!! After the proposal, I found out my ring came in that Wednesday while I was out of town, but Kevin told the jeweler not to rush on getting the diamond set because we were no longer going to be able to go out of town. Friday morning after my phone call that the plans were back on, Kevin called the jeweler in a panic to see if they could get the diamond set that day! Luckily it all worked out! My ring is beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a prettier ring!

I love my ring. It's so classy and elegant. My fiance asked me one day if I wanted to look at rings so that he could get an idea of what I liked. I had a vision of something simple, yet beautiful and one of a kind. When I saw this ring, I knew it was the one. I was proposed to in October of 2010 and we are getting married in September of 2012. Your collection is stunning and I am counting down the days until I get the band for it!

I am speechless...what a wonderful surprise! My husband gave me one of your beautiful creations today for our 23rd anniversary! I love my ring; it is so pretty and feminine! I am so thrilled with it, and it fits perfectly. I don't know how that worked out so well because due to arthritis, my knuckle is very large in comparison to my finger, but the ring fits like a glove! I was drooling over your website when I got home, and now, I am a lucky owner! I am so thrilled, and nothing like a sparkly to make my day!

As if Christmas 2010 wasn't the most fantastic day EVER already; the day after turned out to be even more amazing. My fiancé was leaving to go ice fishing at 7am, and came upstairs to say goodbye. He knelt down next to the bed, said goodbye, but then didn't move. Needless to say, when I rolled over to see what he was doing, there was the box; wrapped in gold paper with a teal bow - the most perfect little gift I'd ever seen. On 'both' knees he asked me to marry him and of course, I said YES! At 7am in December in upstate NY, it's still dark out but when I opened the box, the room lit up. My ring sparkled like I have never seen before, it just glowed! It's the most amazing ring I've ever seen, and everyday when I look down I can't believe I'm wearing it! I receive daily comments on how gorgeous and unique it is, and of course, how well he did! After almost six years, on August 20, 2011 I will be marrying my best friend!!
