A huge congratulation is in order for our Sylvie Bride, Daniela B! This engagement in particular is quite special to us, as Daniela is an employee of Sylvie Collection! We couldn’t be happier for you, Daniela—congratulations to you and your fiancé Todd!
How They Met
Todd and I met at a marketplace located on a classic New England Green in Guilford, Connecticut. I was sitting in a bar sipping a cappuccino and people watching, when he sat down next to me with his coffee. We were both silent for about 20 minutes, and you could cut the energy with a knife! I decided to break the ice, and after an hour of conversation he excused himself to go back to work.
A week later, while on a business trip and sitting in my hotel room late one night, I received an email from Todd! He had somehow discovered my art website, and took the time to cut and paste the pieces of art he liked most and critique each one… He wrote a full-page email! I was not only surprised that he had found my site, but also amazed that he had written such a detailed note. He concluded the email by asking me on a date!
Our first date was a magical lunch at a vineyard… And I pretty much knew he was the one right then and there!
I come from a large Italian family. My grandmother is such an important part of my life, and my aunts, uncles, and cousins mean the world to me. I always envisioned being surrounded by them during our proposal, and that’s exactly what he made happen! He waited until a family event after Christmas, and proposed in front of my whole family. It was very special, and I am so happy that my children were there to be a part of it!
We purchased the ring at Rumanoff’s in Hamden, Connecticut. It was such a smooth process, and it was truly a wonderful experience working with the staff there.
My ring is the S1511, a unique diamond engagement ring with marquise milgrain detail. I absolutely love anything vintage-inspired, and when I first saw the Sylvie Collection, I fell in love with their modern vintage collection. The rings are feminine, classic, and unique! I truly cherish my ring because it’s not something everyone has, and it is timeless!
I also love that my ring can be easily paired with Sylvie Collection stackable rings. I can’t wait to create playful new looks alongside my engagement ring with them!
My ring is something that transcends age and style, and I know that when I’m old and gray I will be able to pass it down to my children and it will still be stylish! It is truly a unique ring.
Congratulations again, Daniela and Todd!
