Los Angeles, CAOctober 23, 2014 – Today Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store announced its Blogger & Style Expert Ring Reviews, which includes many of the retailer’s most popular and sought after engagement ring styles this Fall. Ranging from the three-stone ring with princess cut diamonds to halo designs with rose gold accents, some of your favorite style experts weigh in on their favorite engagement ring bling.

The featured engagement rings include a radiant-cut halo setting from Kirk Kara, a favorite of Mimi LaRue, Houston radio host and creator of Dripping Sexy. “The radiant center stone complemented by the parade of sparkly diamonds surrounding it is the perfect combination for a YES. It’s a fairytale romance between delicious and beautiful. The two had a love child.”

Harmony Walton, founder and editor of The Bridal Bar prefers the Candlelight Collection’s yellow diamond cushion-cut ring. “I love the sophisticated and standout look of a yellow diamond, it says something about the spirit of a woman. The ribbon twist white gold double halo ring is a great blend of vintage detailing and modern color, to make it timeless and on trend at the same time. Swoon!”

Jennifer Chan from The Fabulous File, who prefers subtle but classy, was equally excited to share her take on the rose gold Tacori engagement ring. “The rose gold setting flatters all skin tones, while the larger-than-life halo design is chic and tasteful, and just so happens to be a favorite among celebrities—and for good reason!”

Not only women have an appreciation for fashionably elegant engagement rings. Russ Weakland, the senior LA reporter at Hollywood Life shares his choice. “With the impact that this Divine 2.5 carat princess cut ring shows, it is proof that you are intending to make a moment that will last a lifetime. If love could be bottled up in a ring, this would be the one.”

“The Blogger & Style Expert Ring Reviews is our fun way, through the eyes of fashion experts, to present a variety of options to our customers who are planning a marriage proposal this time of year,” said Shannon Daly, director of jewelry for Robbins Brothers. “This year we saw an increased interest in rose gold, blue sapphires, yellow diamonds, and the vintage halo remains popular for those who prefer a big look.”

3 Freaky Halloween Marriage Proposal Ideas

By guest blogger Mark Estrada, Robbins Brothers Marketing Assistant

October is not known for being the most romantic month; however that didn’t stop the Pumpkin King from finding the next Mrs. Skellington and it shouldn’t stop you. So if you’re into it, here are some Halloween proposal ideas to make sure your proposal doesn’t end up as the Nightmare before Christmas.

Haunted Maze Proposal
You know her better than anyone else, and a mischievous smile has started to curl your lips. The idea here is to set up a haunted maze just for her, and right when you have her where you want her jump out and slam that ghoulish knee to the ground! Hopefully the slap is met with a follow up kiss and embrace, if not you probably knew better.

Trick or Treat
Do not give the ring to a complete stranger and expect to ever see it again. Now that we have that disclaimer out of the way, consider giving the ring to a complete stranger or just someone your potential fiancée doesn’t know. After you’ve set up the proposal proceed to trick or treat ending up at this stranger’s house. When the unsuspecting ring bearer answers the door, have your girl say “trick or treat” and have the person hand your girlfriend the ring. When she turns to you for an explanation she will see you poised and ready for her answer.

Grow old with me
In the spirit of Bad Grandpa, minus academy award nominated makeup, consider dressing up as old folks with your lady. I’m talking about grey wigs and horn rimmed glasses while the two of you enjoy whatever Halloween festivities are available. Once the day is done and coming to a close, pull your “Old Lady” aside, avoid breaking a hip and ask her to grow old with you.

Memorable Proposal At Seattle Mariners Baseball Game

Wade & Jessi of Seattle, WA. Just Engaged!

Wade & Jessi of Seattle, WA. Just Engaged!

Engagement Date  September 28, 2014
Wedding Date  TBD

How did you two meet?
We met in high school.

How did you propose?
I proposed to her at the final Seattle Mariners game of the season at Safeco Field. After the game I brought her down the stairs close to the field for pictures with my family and friends (about 15 close friends and family). And then afterwards got on one knee in the aisle and had the engagement box inside a cut-out baseball! Also with 2 dozen red and pink roses my friend helped me deliver.

Wade proposes to Jessi at the Seattle Mariners game! She said YES.

What does she love most about her engagement ring?
She loves the simplicity of the round solitaire. She also is a big advocate of the 6-prong placement, she feels it showcases the 1 carat colorless diamond even more! It’s something she will never get tired of looking at and it’ll never go out of style! Our grandchildren will agree how beautiful it is even 50 years from now.

Wade presented Jesse with a classic diamond solitaire engagement ring with side stones from Robbins Brothers.

I bought it from the Woodland Hills, CA store while on vacation, but then had it shipped to our home near the Seattle, WA downtown store and picked it up there while on a lunch break. I proposed on the 28th of the month because 28 is a special number to us. Having both our birthdays on the 28th of our months, so it was fitting for this to be the same for the engagement and hopefully the wedding too!

Wade and Jessi, welcome to the Robbins Brothers Family! Best Wishes for a Happy Engagement! Enjoy every single moment of it. xoxo
