As a person who loves romantic gestures, being part of any love story thoroughly thrills me. I have shared great moments with family, friends, and even total strangers. This makes my job at Aurex more of a hobby.
Sometime last year, my sister’s then boyfriend asked for my help in choosing a ring for her as he was planning a surprise engagement party. Never in a million years would l say no to such a request. My sister knows me too well, so l had to be smart to pull this off. My mind went into overdrive to strategize on how to get her ring size and the design she would like. We discussed several ways we could get her ring size measurement and the perfect design for her.
Our biggest challenge was to find out which ring she wanted as she never hinted when she came to my workplace at Aurex Eastgate Market. When she came by to see me, she tried almost every ring on display and seemed spoiled for choice, so we had to come up with a way for her to make up her mind on one design she really fancied above all and then get it made on her size.
After contemplating for days, we had a solid plan. l told her that my boyfriend had asked me to pick an engagement ring for myself as he wanted to propose. I told her that l needed her help as l valued her opinion. She was disappointed in her bamdiki for not consulting her and making this a surprise. She even phoned to confront him, (what a drama queen). Luckily l had shared my plan with him, so he played along. Despite the disappointment she agreed to come.
The selection process
I must say the process was not easy, l had to find a way for her to express which one intrigued her while at the same time l had to pretend like the ring was for me. At times l would pick a ring try it and then l would ask her to try it too so that she can express her feelings about it freely. After searching for over an hour, l then concluded that she had fallen in love with RL0588 on yellow gold. She kept referring to it and at one time, she did not want to take it off. After all this, l now had to get an accurate ring size. While l was thinking of my next move, she suddenly asked me to measure her ring size. I said a little thank you prayer in my heart, she had made my life so much easier. I even playfully refused, and she had to beg me. If only she knew LOL. I eventually got the ring size. The boyfriend later passed by to pay for the ring and l processed the order. What a day!!
The big day
So, the plan was for the engagement to take place on the 22nd September at the Chicken Basket. The day came and the boyfriend was a nervous wreck. The question in his mind was “would she say YES?”
Anyway, to cut the story short our nervous customer got down on one knee and popped the question and my sis said YES. It was a joyous day and the rest like they say is history.
