“Summertime and the livin’ is easy”  goes the song and for some reason-maybe it’s the sun and the long days, the leisure and relaxation, beach and surf, ripening fruit, open roads and adventure, a sense of endless possibilities-whatever it is, “that old black magic called love” seems to embolden a man to pop the question and ask the girl of his dreams to be his wife. Summer is the season of proposals and every man wants his lady to feel that his proposal is as perfect as humanly possible (see Getting Engaged 1: A Guide to the most important ring of your life, August, 2014 and The Perfect Proposal,September 2014). An enduring desire is, was, and no doubt, forever more will be, an engagement ring that has the magical 1 carat of diamonds. It says, “I love you” more eloquently than any words ever could.
