Find the Perfect Ring

First of all, to make the engagement special for your significant other, find the perfect engagement ring. Pay attention to your partner’s style of jewelry to get a good idea of what they like so you can match the ring to their personality.

Make sure that you get a band in a color and metal that they prefer, whether that is yellow gold, white gold, or platinum. You should also choose the cut and carat of the diamond to reflect your partner’s tastes.

An alternative to a traditional diamond that you may want to consider, is called a CVD, or chemical vapor deposition diamond. These gems are man made. They are grown in a lab over the course of about a month, and so they cost less than traditional diamonds.

CVD diamonds are of high quality and identical to traditionally mined diamonds. These diamonds will still have certain imperfections and different grades that are evaluated by a jeweler and affect the cost. Another advantage of a CVD diamond is that there are no negative impacts on the environment that can occur from mining practices.

Plan the Proposal

Once you have the perfect ring, you should plan your proposal. The day that you propose should be a special day that is fitting for you and your partner. Decide if you should propose in a public setting, or if the moment should be private between the two of you. Some people prefer a private engagement, while others enjoy being surrounded by their family and friends. This is a personal choice, and you may be able to get some insights into your partner’s preferences through casual conversation or by asking advice from those closest to her.

Choose the place that you will propose carefully. It should happen in a special place that has significance to you both. Make the proposal meaningful and from the heart. The words that you use don’t have to be fancy, they just need to be thoughtful and convey your deep feelings. Most people prefer that a proposal is a surprise, so try not to give away what you plan to do.

You may also want to ask your partner’s parents for their blessing before you propose.


NFL star Mario Williams, who is suing his ex-fiancée Erin Marzouki to get back a $785,000 10-carat diamond engagement ring, actually sent her texts saying she could keep it, according to her lawyer.

Mario Jerrel Williams, 28, defensive end for the Buffalo Bills worth over $30 million with a $100 million contract, is suing Erin Marzouki for the return of the ring after their relationship turned sour.

Erin Marzouki, 31, who is counter suing to keep the ring levied accusations through her lawyer that Mario Williams lied in his lawsuit and repeatedly told her to keep the gift.

Her attorney, high profile Texas lawyer Anthony Buzbee, released a series of text messages this week that make it seem as if Mario Williams has in fact urged Erin Marzouki to keep the ring, contrary the allegations filed in his lawsuit, according a report from Ultimate Texans.

In the messages Mario Williams writes: “Keep those material things. It means nothing to me anymore,” later adding: “KEEP IT! Remember me by it.”

Anthony Buzbee described Mario Williams actions as emotionally unstable and said the football player is confused as to whether he wants to be married or single.

The lawyer also introduced into evidence an email written by Mario Williams earlier this year that asks Erin Marzouki to reconcile.

“I just want to verbally discuss and answer things knowing you have closed the door,” Mario Williams wrote.

“I still can’t say one thing bad about you that sticks.”

Despite the new evidence coming to light Mario Williams vehemently denies the allegations, saying that the messages were taken out of context.

“Obviously it’s just a tactic to cover up the point of the whole thing,” Mario Williams told the website.

“It is what it is. I could really care less. All it is (is) allegations and text messages and what not, whatever information blown out of proportion. I mean, it’s completely out of context.”

Yet in another message released by Anthony Buzbee, Mario Williams was allegedly more explicit in his desire to give Erin Marzouki the ring.

“She said she was going to keep the ring n told her fine. I put down using material things as leverage long ago. She is free to be n do as she wants,” Mario Williams wrote.

In his lawsuit Mario Williams claims that Erin Marzouki ended the couple’s engagement after a year because she “never intended to marry and used the relationship as a means to get money and acquire gifts”, according to the court documents.

In response to the charges Erin Marzouki has filed a counter suit to what she calls her ex-fiancé Mario Williams’ “silly” accusations and doesn’t intend to give back the ring because it was given to her as an unconditional gift.

Erin Marzouki says Mario Williams was the one who broke off the engagement because part of him “wanted to be married and start a family, while another part wanted to continue to live the life of a wealthy bachelor who could do whatever he wanted, with whomever he wanted, whenever he wanted”.

Mario Williams’ lawyers have asked the court to obtain the ring from Erin Marzouki until the legal action is resolved.

Mario Williams was the first selection in the 2006 NFL draft by the Texans and played in Houston through the 2011 season.

Although by regular standards the ring is a fortune, it is pocket change to Mario Williams who last year signed one of the most lucrative contracts for a defensive player in NFL history: a six-year, $100 million with the Buffalo Bills with $50 million in cash guaranteed.
