"Myrna, Thank you very much for your help! Here are our pictures and a few words from Kal & I.”
Kal & Danie
“Once upon a time... love striked, he striked back... It felt like love at first sight... but it didn't take him too long to realize that she is the one... The End "
"Being with you, I learned that love is simple. It doesn’t have to be perfect but real. Thanks for being your true self with me and for your unconditional love"
Clayton & Daniela
Clayton came in to our store, sat down and we designed a unique, one-of-a-kind engagement ring for him. He insisted on all Canadian diamonds and gold!
Even more exciting, was how he presented it to her!
He flew all the way to Venezuela and carefully prepared a surprise engagement proposal! How romantic?
Our team at La Maison D'or wish Clayton and Daniela all the best!
Congratulations! - Arpi
"We are now in the process of having our matching wedding bands designed at La Maison D’Or”
Patrick & Razan
“After 2 amazing years together, I decided to propose at the end of our 3 week trip to Spain this summer. I went to see Brent and Myrna at La Maison D’Or at Place D’Orleans, and filled them in on my plan. They were so amazing!"
"I was able to have a say in every part of the creation of this ring"
"They talked to me about my vision for the ring and allowed me to customize it completely. I couldn’t have been more happy when I saw the final product!"
Inspiration from around the world:
This will be one of the most important questions you will ask someone in yours, and their, lives. A little bit of effort will go a long way to make it special! It’s all about the location: pick a spot that is special to you and to your partner. This could be a nostalgic spot, like a first date, to a romantic place, such as your favourite restaurant. That said, a location doesn’t have to be all about a physical area! It can be at an event, such as his/her favourite band, or a local music festival that you both love to attend. The location sets the tone and mood of what will become a great memory!
Setting is also key – do you want to stay traditional, one-on-one, or perhaps in a small gathering amongst family and friends? Do you want to go big, in an exotic space, or in front of thousands? What would your loved one most appreciate, as you drop to one knee and begin the next chapter of your life?
