Platinum Proposals

A Sweet Engagement by Jeff Bilgore

30 years ago, I asked my wife using this simple formula and technique:

“I used platinum because it is the best statement of fineness in jewelry, so of course it’s the only choice to begin a marriage with.”

1) Find the most amazing woman in the world.

2) Get a large York Peppermint Pattie.

3) Make a beautiful emerald cut sapphire ring, set in platinum.

4) Cut out a section to hide your intentions.

5) Place ring in center and reseal the Patty, place in refrigerator to ‘firm’ up the presentation.

6) At dinner for desert offer a York Peppermint Pattie – best done on one knee!

 

30 years, two amazing children, and two great dogs later I can attest to two things…

1) The formula works.

2) I am the luckiest guy in the world.
