Mike & Katie’s Proposal

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Hey Jayne, 

Everything went perfectly; I had told Katie that we were heading up to Mangawhai heads to my Aunties batch and needed to leave home very early to catch my auntie before she goes to work to grab the batch keys.  Just before we turned off at the Airport turn off I told her “I have a confession, we are not going to Mangawhai” (should have seen the stunned look on her face) I  give her a series of  travel related clues, the third one being tickets to cairns and a fake letter stating I had won a top sellers competition which included accommodation, rental car and spa package.

She was a whole mix of emotions (and had no clue it was a trip for anything more) I managed to sneak away from her  at the airport  to pick up the ring, I even came back with another distraction/clue.  Koru lounge passes.

She was blown away when we checked into the beachfront resort “Angsana” at Palm Cove, I had booked a 90 minute spa package for her right away so I could go about my business talking to the restaurant staff, picking up the essential wine and something to drink to calm the pre proposal nerves.

I had told Katie that we should eat at the restaurant tonight after our long flight and when we arrived the wait staff offered us the beach front dining option (which I had already arranged but got them to down play it) Katie just thought it was something they do… We had a private table on the sand, under palm trees an amazing view of the beach, wine and the best service I have ever had! Even with all of this going on Katie didn’t suspect anything!

We had an amazing meal and then I managed to drop onto one knee and pop the question (after a little speech)… She was blown away and did say YES! Which is the most important thing, the lighting was awesome for the Ring to sparkle at her.

We spent the next day out at the Great Barrier Reef scuba diving. So all in all an amazing proposal trip!

Thank you so much for the time, effort and most of all the patience you have shown me.  The Ring went down a treat and has allowed Katie to show it off confidently…

Ian Testimonial

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Hi Jayne,

I am very happy that i got Leeyan’s engagement ring with DFNZ, we’re been getting lots of comments about how nice it is and Leeyan really likes it.

I asked Leeyan to marry me last friday when we were hiking up in the Southern Alps, to which she said YES!

At some point we’d like to talk  to you about wedding rings for both Leeyan and myself. Do you think we need to schedule a trip up to Auckland from Christchurch?


Hayden & Kylie’s Testimonial

Hi Jayne,
Sorry for the delay but we got engaged two weeks ago and Kylie wants to give you a great big hug as the ring is perfect and just what she wanted.

I would just like to thank you for all your help and we will keep in touch as we will come back for the wedding bands.

Scott & Jenni’s Proposal

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012


Scott proposed to Jenni in the fresh powder on a beautiful snow covered slope in the back country of Mt Ruapehu on the 7th October 2012 in an area called Solitude. Mt Ruapehu is special to them because that’s where Scott taught Jenni to snowboard and they both have spent a lot of time together there. Scott had spraypainted ‘will you marry me’ on the slope, he boarded down to Jenni, unstrapped one foot so he could get down on one knee and propose. There was a slight mishap when the ring dropped in the snow but luckily it was quickly salvaged.


What a truly spectacular moment and a memory that will last forever.

Diamonds Forever wishes you both every success for your future and we look forward to receiving the amazing wedding photos from your happy day.

Guy & Lisa’s Engagement

Sunday, November 6th, 2011


Hi Jayne,

Just wanted to send through a few photos from my and Lisa’s engagement weekend and also say thank you for all your help. Lisa absolutely loved the ring, it came out really well and the weekend was great. The helicopter ride went off without a hitch and the weather turned out beautifully.

Still trying to decide on a location and date for a wedding, but we’re thinking about sometime in November 2012, and we are likely to have something here as well as in the States.

Thanks for your help.

Kind Regards,

Guy & Lisa

Brett & Sarah’s Engagement

Saturday, June 25th, 2011


Brett kept the surprise hidden in his shoe during the climb to the top, he was worried he was going to lose the ring but when they reached the top it was still there, just a bit sandy!

Phil & Joanne’s Engagement

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Hi Jayne,

I thought I would let you know that Joanne said yes, we had a lovely weekend at the Chateau, it snowed, just beautiful.

Joanne said yes and absolutely loved the ring. All very happy.

Thank you.

Thad & Lena’s Engagement

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Hi Jayne

Thanks for your email - I was actually about to email you to give you the news and to thank you for helping me arrange such a lovely ring for Lena.

Lena and I got engaged on Saturday - We went down to Takapuna beach (beautifully sunny day) and I gave her the ring. We’d just got back from Tauranga with the last of her stuff, so the timing worked quite well.There was no one-knee manoeuvre as we were lounging on a picnic rug (just on the grass - was ‘PG’ rated) - I just went with ‘are you happy?’, ‘could anything make you happier?’, ‘How about this?’ (the ring! - haha).Lena has had plenty of compliments on her ring, which is to be expected of course, but some of the dropped jaws told me that they were not just compliments out of standard niceties - it is a stunning ring and looks great on her finger - even better than we had imagined!Will be in touch for some wedding rings when the time comes.

Thanks again.
