Will You Marry Me? – To Love

November 26, 2011

“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.” Louis De Bernieres

You know that moment when you realise that you love someone so much that you couldn’t imagine life without them? – “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” Aristotle

When every morning you wake up and you see that familiar face and they STILL bring a smile to yours?

When all you seem to find yourself doing is working out ways to show how much you love them… – “I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. Roy Croft

…then it’s usually time to make that final commitment and pop the question… This can be one of the most memorable moments in your life and the one thing that actually stays with you for life and holds that special memory in its very being is the engagement ring.

Most people assume that they want their ring to look beautiful, but have you considered how the design can evoke a deeper level of meaning?

Hidden details and design choices can tell a story that will be repeated to everybody who sees the ring! We all have a precious story that starts with how we got together, the stumbling blocks, the cement that holds us together, and the passion that drives us forwards… I design engagement rings and wedding bands that encompass these little stories or meanings within them.

 I design pieces inspired by feelings and connections, and as a result the engagement ring or wedding rings evoke emotional associations that last a lifetime.

Whether you want 18 carat yellow/white gold, platinum, diamonds, you name it, Phioro can deliver. And if you need advice on where to start with diamond quality and value please don’t hesitate to get in touch – it can be a minefield out there of carats, cuts, clarity, colour and worst of all prices! This can be especially confusing in the Middle Eastern region, as the issue of trust in where you buy is a major factor in your decision process.

(Phioro is based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates but we can design and deliver worldwide)
