Propose with a Ring from Jeweler's Row this Valentine's Day

Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Couples won’t be the only ones feeling the love this Valentine’s Day; restaurants, hotels, retailers, and jewelers will all see an increase in sales due to the romantic weekend.

An estimated 14 million proposals will happen on Valentine’s Day – making it one of the most popular days to propose in 2016. While that is a lot of love, it is also a lot of engagement rings. Jeweler’s Row, located on Wabash Ave. between Washington and Monroe, is where a majority of Chicago couples will find the perfect engagement rings this weekend.  

Don Strzepek, CEO & President at Tucker, Inc. on Jeweler’s Row, has helped countless couples prepare for proposals.

“I have seen all kinds of proposals. From putting engagement rings in chocolate lava cake, which I don’t necessarily recommend, to a gentleman who wanted to present a loose diamond to his fiancé and ended up searching for it for 14 hours in the grass outside of a church,” said Strzpek. No matter the proposal, Strzpek emphasized that, “Love is Love.”

Dozens of shops on Jeweler’s Row specializes in engagement rings. These shops provide more of a personalized experience than the typical chain jewelry stores. Brides and grooms can design their own rings, pick out their own diamonds, and even get them engraved. It is also common for jewelers to create strong relationships with their clients. Many of these stores have generations of families as customers because of the personalized service and great prices.

If you are looking to propose this Valentine's Day it's not too late! Head to Jeweler's Row this weekend for a one-of-a-kind diamond and experience.
