When Kelly Johnson’s fiancé, Lorenzo Wells, proposed, it may have been a surprise, but the engagement ring definitely wasn’t. Johnson, who works at Christopher Williams Jewelers in Virginia, said she always knew a Verragio ring was in her cards.
And Wells, who has been dating Johnson for six and a half years, had everything planned from the perfect ring to a scenic sunset setting, according to Johnson.
“Lorenzo told me he wanted to go up to a local mountain resort and watch the sunset and take pictures of the fall leaves sometime during the week. I didn't really think much of it, then Wednesday came around and work told me to leave at 4pm to do a delivery for them ,” Johnson said.
When Wells got down on one knee though, Johnson finally got the hint.
Their engagement was a longtime coming, according to Johnson, who is currently busy planning their dream wedding in Outer Banks, NC for July of 2012. “We are going to rent a beach house for our family and friends and spend a week down there celebrating and get married on our last day down there on the beach,” Johnson said.
And as for the engagement ring, they couldn’t be happier to have it as a symbol of their relationship. “It was the perfect ring for me and when I originally showed it to my fiancé he said that it was exactly the ring he would have chosen for me,” Johnson said. “It was fate.”
