How did you two meet? (In Judon’s Words)
Millie’s best friend introduced us in high school.
How did you propose?
I proposed to her in Las Vegas. Invited her out on the balcony of our room to have a drink and watch the sunset. When she turned around I was down on bended knee with the ring.
Where did you get married?
We married at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas in front of 50 guests. It was perfect.
What do you two love most about your Engagement & Wedding Rings?
I love the quality and also how bright the diamonds are. The rings got so many compliments and they are very comfortable to wear. I took one picture of the bride’s ring, which has been the most popular picture that our friends and family have asked us for. Thanks to everyone at the Torrance store for your help & well wishes!

Just Engaged! Sending a warm congratulations to contestants Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd who were recently engaged on CBS’ Big Brother 16. When Jeff visited the Woodland Hills store, it was such a pleasure helping him find the ring that Jordan would adore. He was so excited and even a little nervous picking it out, but our wonderful engagement ring consultants, Amy Butler and Moraima Alamillo, helped put him right at ease. It was a ring-shopping “party” as the ladies assisted Jeff with his decision on a gorgeous cushion-cut halo diamond engagement ring from the Robbins Brothers Vintage Collection.

Congrats to Robbins Brothers customers Daryl and Cristina from Arizona! Just Engaged!
Engagement Date June 15, 2014
Wedding Date July 4, 2015
How did you two meet? (In Daryl’s words)
In 2010, my friend Melissa (whom I dated when we were 13 years old) invited Cris and me to a 4th of July party. Cris was there on a date with another guy. That date wasn’t going well for him. After she sent him home, Cris and I started talking. One thing led to another, we exchanged numbers and we went on our first date that next weekend. Cris LOVES butterflies and roses, so our first date was to see the live Butterfly Pavilion at the Natural History Museum and the Rose Garden at the California Science Museum across the quad.
How did you propose?
Every year we go to Vegas for Cris’ birthday (June 17). For this trip we had several activities planned, including the Tournament of Kings dinner and show at Excalibur Hotel & Casino on the night we arrived (June 15). When you walk into the casino on the main floor before heading down to the theater, there is a photo concession stand where scantily clad models invite you to stand with them in playful poses. After they went through their routine, I asked if we could do one more pose. I snaked the ring out of my pocket, dropped to my knee and asked Cris to marry me. The model you see in the background of the “on my knee” photo and the photographer had no idea I was going to do this. The model’s candid reaction is obvious excitement and joy and the photographer just kept snapping shots. We were the first people anyone could remember EVER using their service to capture a wedding proposal. After she said yes and I placed the ring on her finger we went down to the theater for dinner and the show where they announced our engagement to the entire arena.
What does she love most about the engagement ring?
As you may have guessed from the description of our first date, it was no accident that the ring I chose for Cris is butterfly-theme. I spent several long weeks searching for a suitable ring before finding this one on the Robbins Brothers website. Once I found it, that was it. I knew it was the perfect ring for her. I was almost shattered when I learned that it was from the 2012 Spring Collection and no longer available in stores. When Lori Harris from the Ring Center explained that I could special order it from a manufacturing plant in China I was overjoyed despite it being Chinese New Year and there would be a bit of a delay. We love that this ring looks like a butterfly. It is a perfect choice for Cris who loves butterflies so much.

Just Engaged! One of our very own, Robbins Brothers’ visual merchandising coordinator Brandy & fiance Leon.
Engagement Date June 14, 2014
Wedding Date January 24, 2015
How did you two meet? (In Brandy’s Words)
We actually met on Match.com. My co-worker convinced me to try it out and it did not take long before I met Leon. We went on our first date at Intelligentsia Coffee in Old Pasadena. We stood there for hours talking. It was a great first date.
How did he propose?
We just got home from celebrating his Birthday and I went to change my clothes and when I got back, he hugged me and got down on one knee. I didn’t even give him a chance to say much. I blurted out, “of course!” I really didn’t see that coming.
What do you love most about your Engagement Ring?
I love color! So instead of a diamond I opted for a sapphire. It is a custom made engagement ring with an oval antique cut padparadschra Chatham sapphire. It is more on the orange side than the pink and it looks fantastic!
Leon knew Brandy wanted something unique! He presented her with a custom designed oval cut padparadschra Chatham sapphire from Robbins Brothers (well of course).
Just Engaged on the beautiful Island of Kauai! Congrats to Glendale, CA customers Dione & Lisa!
Engagement Date April 5, 2014
Wedding Date April 26, 2015
How did you two meet? (In Dione’s Words)
Lisa and I met in college while both attending San Diego State University.
How did you propose?
I took Lisa to the Island of Kauai for a few days. On the second day I rented a helicopter just for the 2 of us and got a tour of the entire island. It then landed at the Jurassic Falls which is a famous waterfall that was featured in the movie Jurassic Park. We both stood in front of this beautiful and iconic waterfall and when the moment was right I got down on one knee after saying a few kind words.
What does she love most about her engagement ring?
She loves the personal touch that I incorporated. I put emerald stones on the sides to honor her grandmother and mother who both have emeralds in their ring. Of course she loves that there is a big rock on her finger but the emeralds are very symbolic and meaningful.

How was your shopping experience? Stressful?
To be honest when I first walked in my plan was to just get an idea and then shop around at other stores to compare. The minute I walked in Nairi at the Glendale store made me feel very comfortable and she was very helpful throughout the process. After looking around for a while I finally set eyes on the perfect ring. Once we put the set together I knew that was the one. I didn’t need to go to another store to compare or even see if there was anything else out there. The special treatment I received and great experience made this process pain free. We will be going back for wedding bands as we get closer to our wedding date.
