Blog | Real Proposal Stories: Christopher and Gregg
Christopher, the newest addition to the Greenwich St. Jewelers team as our part-time bookkeeper, began as one of our clients. Searching for the perfect rings to express their love, Christopher and his fiancée Gregg commissioned our store to create diamond bands that were uniquely theirs. Check out their love story and pictures of their one-of-a-kind rings below! From Christopher: Gregg and I met 7 years ago online, as most people tend to meet these days. Being skeptical of people you meet online, I set up a time to meet with a 15 minute window. I had somewhere else to be after that 15 minutes. I figured that if it wasn't a good match, then the quick meeting would be over and that would be that. Surprisingly, after the 15 minutes had expired and I mentioned I had to leave, he leaned in and kissed me. It was just the right kind of kiss...it was perfect. So instead of me leaving him at the bar, I asked him to join me on my venture which he was happy to do. We then went to a restaurant afterwards and had a real date. After a year and a half of dating, he proposed to me on a gondola in Whistler, Vancouver and produced a temporary ring that he picked up mountainside. Upon our return, we had time to research rings that we would give to each other on our wedding day. Gregg came across Greenwich St. Jewelers and we were impressed by the fact that they were a green company, the diamonds came from Canada and that they used recycled materials. In addition, we would be able to design our own rings. We made an appointment and met with Christina, the owner, who spent a lot of time with us and was thrilled to be a part of our story. We were extremely specific with what we wanted we could not be happier with the results. Our rings are outstanding and the sparkle of these specific diamonds catches everyone's eye. We are complimented everywhere we go. Curious about designing your own perfect ring? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-288-9222 to schedule your appointment.
