This is an awesome story, and certainly extraordinarily creative.
Terry and Anna had been dating for a year, and as a 1-year-dating gift, Terry made Anna a necklace. It was a simple chain with a pendant, the pendant was made from Huon Pine, which is a wood from Tasmania, down under. Inside the pendant-capsule, there was a little secret compartment.
Anna wore the necklace pretty much every day, for about 18 months. While on a trip to Scotland late last year, ready and confident that she would say “yes,” he decided to pop the question. But first, how to casually get the necklace from Anna? While in Scotland, they took a trip into Smoo Cave. Smoo is convenient, since they had always talked about going there, and because “Smoo” basically means “hiding place,” perfectly long with the necklace he made.
Oh right, inside the necklace. For the previous 18 months, right there around her own neck, the engagement ring he was giving her on that day at the cave was encapsulated in the little pendant. He asked for the necklace, because he wanted to take a picture of it on a rock near the cave. He pulled out a knife, opened the pendant, and did his thing.
Here’s his video of the story:
She didn’t even realize at first that the ring was inside the whole time. It took her a few seconds, but once she figured it out, there was a lot of response and emotion. First was confusion, then an excited “yes,” and then she got mad, saying it could have been lost or misplaced with the ring inside, and called him a few choice words, but overall, it was “a hilarious mix of happy and angry.”
What a cool story. Check out some more details here.
