Christine and Michael

Christine and Michael

Jul 21st 2022

Christine and I met in high school and started dating her first year in college. We dated for seven years before I proposed to her. About a year ago, we decided we wanted to go on a trip around Europe for our 7th anniversary of dating. As we discussed different plans for our trip, I realized this would be the perfect time to pop the question. Our journey started in London before we traveled to Paris, Rome, and eventually Santorini, Greece. Christine always expressed an interest in going to Greece and would talk about how beautiful it was. I decided this would be the location of the proposal. It just so happened that one of our nights in Santorini was our 7th anniversary as well. Now, having the perfect time and location, I just needed the perfect ring. From day one, the service I received from the staff at Razny Jewelers was nothing short of first class. I worked with Sarah for a couple of months producing different CAD renderings until I was completely satisfied with the result. Sarah was so accommodating and patient with me, and her communication was professional and swift. I could not have asked for a better experience. 

Once we finalized the custom ring design, I asked if I could have a duplicate ring made that would look just like the original/real ring but would be cost-effective. I planned on bringing this "travel ring" overseas with us to Greece to propose. Sarah and the Razny Jewelers team were able to produce the duplicate ring and had both rings ready for me just before our departure. We arrived in Greece on May 29th, and I proposed to Christine on May 31st, 2022 (our 7-year anniversary). She said yes, and the rest is history.
