unleashing the unconventional: mountaintop proposal in east africa

Here's an engagement story for the history books! Who needs a fancy restaurant or a proposal cliché you've seen time and time again, when you can propose at the top of a mountain in Kenya?! This adventurous couple's engagement is proof that unique proposals are so special, and that couples should feel empowered to do what feels right for them.

On New Year's Day, 'D' and 'R' woke up early to hike to the summit of Mount Kenya, hoping to catch the first sunrise of the new year. And what a beautiful sunrise it was! With the sun peeking through the clouds, 'D' got down on one knee and asked 'R' to marry him. Or that's what she thinks he said - it was really windy at the top! Their excitement cured their inevitable altitude sickness for just long enough to snap some amazing photos to commemorate the occasion.

What makes this engagement even more special is the ring that 'D' chose for this unique proposal. He chose our Rebecca design, set with a dazzling 0.59ct round brilliant cut lab grown diamond. Set in a platinum band with diamond set shoulders, the star of the show is the D VS2 certified diamond at it's centre. Lab grown diamonds are not only beautiful, they're also an eco-friendly choice, having a smaller carbon footprint that its mined equivalent.

At Jessica Flinn Fine Jewellery, we believe that every couple should feel empowered to create their own unique engagement story. Whether it's a proposal on top of a mountain, a surprise picnic in the park, or a quiet moment at home, it's the love and commitment to one another that matters the most. By sharing stories like these, we hope to inspire other couples to follow their hearts and create a proposal that's meaningful and memorable for them!

So, to all the adventurous couples out there, we say go ahead and unleash your unconventional side! Your engagement should be uniquely yours, and those magical memories will bring you joy again and again.
