Robbins Brothers, a destination engagement ring store selects the top 12 most popular and beautiful engagement and anniversary diamond ring styles to serve as its official “12 Rings of Christmas.”
Los Angeles, CA–December 4, 2013–Today Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store announced its 12th Annual 12 Rings of Christmas which includes this year’s most popular and sought after engagement ring styles, plus a few anniversary and right-hand diamond rings which can be worn for any occasion. The retailer recently kicked off the ring countdown on its Facebook page.
For couples planning to get engaged, two out of five choose the holiday season for this romantic milestone. Robbins Brothers’ “12 Rings” list features styles to accommodate every taste and budget. The rings, which are festively named, include FROST, a sophisticated setting by Kirk Kara with a radiant cut center diamond of your choice, CELEBRATE, a dazzling white gold pave and channel setting that showcases an invisible-set princess cut stone, and CHEER, a blingin’ double halo diamond engagement ring by designer Michael M.
Other designs that made the “12 Rings” list vary from SNOWFLAKE, a decorative white and yellow gold floral motif and NOEL, a band with a prong setting and seven large diamonds that are perfectly framed by 34 smaller stones. Both of these styles can be worn as right-hand rings, wedding rings or anniversary bands.
“Our 12 Rings of Christmas list has been in the making all year long,” said Shannon Daly, director of jewelry for Robbins Brothers. “With engagement season upon us, we are excited to present some of our best and brightest styles of the year for customers wishing to pop the question in a memorable way with a sparkly token of love.”
I know that most people hate Christmas music blaring on the radio and the crowded malls, but I absolutely love it. Christmas is my favorite time of year and I actually start listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving! What else gets me in the mood for Christmas? Romance! Here are a few of my favorite holiday marriage proposal videos:
Ah, the old toast in front of the family. I love this proposal because it always catches the unsuspecting person off guard with the whole, “What are you doing.. you’re giving a toast??”! Also, I spy with my little eye.. a Robbins Brothers lighted ring box!
A proposal could have come straight from an episode of Glee. This sweet All I Want For Christmas Is You proposal was too cute to pass up! And the students helped sing along! This teacher gets an A+!
This sweet sweet man drove 10 hours to surprise his then-girlfriend with a marriage proposal! The scene was set when he sent her a box of gifts and had created a video for her. Check out the surprise:
This cute silly couple is just adorable and her reaction to the ring… priceless. Santa Clause brings a surprise for an unsuspecting someone:

4 Things You Didn’t Know About Platinum: Metal Matters!
When purchasing a piece of jewelry for yourself or a loved one, you want to choose the best piece – it’s something that is symbolizing your relationship together.
1. Platinum is a great choice for engagement rings and wedding bands because it’s naturally white so it won’t fade or change color over time. It symbolizes a relationship that will endure. Over time, platinum develops a rich finish called a patina.
2. Platinum is durable, like the love one has for their partner. Platinum prongs offer better protection for diamonds. Platinum is durable, 60% heavier than gold. Platinum is so durable that it can stay in your family forever, being passed down from one generation to the next. Platinum’s density makes it highly durable, so it doesn’t wear away over time.
3. White gold has its setbacks. Platinum’s purity makes it a hypoallergenic metal. White gold is known to contain other metals which may trigger an allergic reaction. Did you know? White gold will fade to yellow over time. It requires re-plating to maintain color. White gold loses little pieces of metal with every scratch, requiring many rings to be reinforced or re-shanked to replace metal that has worn away.
4. Platinum is rare, like the true love one finds. Platinum is 30 times more rare than gold. If all the platinum ever mined were melted and poured into a Olympic-sized pool, the platinum would barely reach your ankles. Gold, however, would fill three pools.
