A #LoveShiels Moment: Shark Cage Proposal

When it comes to proposal locations, the more stunning, the better—and it doesn’t get much better than the majestic ocean. But that is only if you like sharks.

This is the moment a brave husband-to-be popped the question to his girlfriend in a shark cage.

Why shark cage diving?

Well, Brad and Shiels Jewellers employee Sammie had planned to go on a cruise, but due to COVID-19, the couple had to compromise.

Seeing as shark cage diving had always been on their bucket list, Brad got creative and organised something even more unique and special.

Despite not actually see any sharks, it was memorable for another reason.

''When I turned around, he was down on one knee with a sign asking if myself and my children will marry him,'' Sammie said.

''He took me completely by surprise, but it was great. I was in shock, I just ended up hugging him because I wasn't sure how to say yes underwater.

''I had no idea he was going to propose, it was a bit odd, but he said that he had planned a few things for the weekend.

''He's really bad at hiding things from me, so he was just excited. I think it was because shark diving had always been on our bucket list, so he was really excited to go finally do it.''

Talk about piling on the pressure! Fortunately, she said yes.

As for the ring, Brad opted to go with an engagement ring from our Seamless Collection.

The Seamless Collection is about romance and elegance - it's about all those things that make a relationship special. 

With the help of the Shiels team and Sammi’s colleague’s, Brad was able to pick out the perfect ring.

''I think he just chose it because it caught his eye,'' Sammie explained.

''I had pointed out a couple of things while working at Shiels to show him what I liked if the day ever came, but I think he actually chose something better than I would have.

''He didn't take the real one in the water because he didn't want to drop it, so he gave it back to me at the hotel.''

Sammie joined the Shiels Hollywood Plaza team as a Christmas casual 10 months ago and she loved it so much she wanted to stick around.

Now at Shiels Tea Tree Plaza, she loves helping people express their individual personality and tell their story with our beautiful, high-quality jewellery.

''I love working with the people here. TTP is my second store but everyone that I've worked with has been great,'' she said.

''It's great being around jewellery because I get to see all the new things come in and buy things that I like.

''It’s really become a passion to make people feel good, especially when they're buying something for themselves and they just want to spoil themselves. It's always a really good feeling.''
