Brilliant Proposals: Ashlyn and Cullan

An engagement ring is the piece of jewelry you dream of for years. If you’re getting engaged, you might have an idea of your “perfect ring”, and we can help make it a reality. When Ashlyn and Cullan came into our Jonesboro store, Ashlyn had a very specific engagement ring in mind, and we were excited to create exactly what she wanted.

Ashlyn and Cullan are both from Jonesboro but didn’t get to know each other until three years ago. On their first date they felt instant chemistry. They quickly realized they were meant for each other.

After two and a half years of dating, Cullen decided to pop the question. He knew it would be tricky to surprise Ashlyn, but with the help of her Maid of Honor, Shayna, and Matron of Honor, Catie, he managed to pull off a huge proposal and engagement party. The couple had recently bought their first home together, and they were in the process of renovating it. After work one day, Cullan asked Ashlyn to come to the house to meet with a countertop professional. He told her to bring her dad so that he could give his input on the countertops and her mom and brother because they had not yet seen the house.

When they arrived at the house and were walking toward the door, Ashlyn’s mom asked her to run back to the truck to grab her phone. Ashlyn did as she was asked and was the last to walk into the house. Inside, she discovered both her and Cullan’s families, Catie and Cullan down on one knee. After Cullan proposed and she exclaimed “yes”! Catie told Ashlyn to freshen up, because there was a party waiting for her at her house. Shayna had invited all of Ashlyn’s friends to the party and set up cake, cookies, hors d’oeuvres, balloons and a photo backdrop.

Ashlyn’s engagement was perfect, and so was her engagement ring. Before getting engaged, Ashlyn had shopped around at different jewelry stores, but she chose Sissy’s because of our customer service. Ashlyn’s dream ring was an asscher cut with trillions and baguettes going down the band. At Sissy’s, she met a fellow asscher cut enthusiast, our jewelry expert Suzanne Southard. Suzanne showed Ashlyn every diamond she had in an asscher cut, helped her meet the price point she was looking for and instructed our craftsmen to build the exact ring she wanted. Not only was Suzanne a huge help to Cullan and Ashlyn, but she also became their friend.
