A Jewelry Store Proposal?


Diamond rings have been given by way of champagne flute, dessert dish and just plain old bended knee, but recently one New Yorker used a jewelry store window to do the deed – and do it well.

The New York Daily News
reports that one creative Manhattanite used an Upper East Side jeweler’s display window to stage a fancy wedding proposal for the love of his life – and she said “yes.”

“Oh, my God, it is beautiful,” Alex Routenberg (26) said, as Tom DeBourcy (26) slipped a 2-carat diamond ring on her finger.

DeBourcy popped the question during a stroll past Jeri Cohen Fine Jewelry on Third Avenue, where he had arranged for flowers and a “Will you marry me Alexandra?” sign to be displayed.

The love birds attended the same high school near Chicago but didn’t meet until he looked her up on (wait for it…) Facebook!

“I asked who the hell he was, and two and a half years later …,” she said.

And while the bride-to-be gave her sig. other props for the creative proposal, she was perhaps more excited to discover the jewelry store he used is the same one New York Housewife Jill Zarin frequents.

“I always walk by and say to my mom, ‘This is the place where Jill Zarin goes!'”

Gotta love a woman with priorities.
