VG Love Tales | A Valentines Day Proposal (Lauren & Brenden)

These are your stories….

The real people that wear Violet Gray, in your own words, about your special love.

And also, the rings that you now own and cherish and hopefully one day far into the future, will continue to live on the hands of many generations to come. 



6 years ago they first met.

Through her cousin,

who also happens to be his best mate.

Dating for 3 years, or round about as neither can remember their ‘official date of beginning’.

And now, engaged for just a few beautiful weeks.


This is the love story of Lauren and Brenden from Brisbane, Australia.

Which ring did you receive?

Hart ~ Australian Zircon set in the combined 14k rose and white gold.


Tell us, how did she come to you? 

HART arrived on my hand on Valentine’s Day 2020, just a few weeks ago.

We got takeaway from our favourite Thai restaurant in Brisbane which we took down to eat by the water. Brenden suggested we go for a walk along the waterfront. He then took me aside for a hug and then got down on one knee to ask me to marry him.

I was in complete shock and can’t remember how he asked because it’s all such a blur now!


Did you know that your ring had been organised for you?

I had absolutely no idea he was going to ask me to marry him. He didn’t give any hints away or show his nerves. It was a complete surprise which I’m so happy about because I do love surprises

I have been sending him hints through instagram whenever a photo/story of HART would be posted and hoped that he was taking notice but there were no clear signals that he indeed was.

A funny story, last year I saw and ‘liked’ a photo on your Instagram of HART being shipped to a lucky lady ~ I obviously didn’t know at the time that this ring was actually bound for my hand.

When you look down at your hand and see your ring, what does she symbolise to you? 

I am OBSESSED with my ring and have adored her from afar for such a long time.

When I look at her on my hand she symbolises my connection with Brenden.

Brenden said it symbolises my personality and who I am by it’s origin and it’s uniqueness (isn’t he the sweetest!) and ultimately, it symbolises what it means to spend the rest of my life with my best friend and my chosen person in life.

And I just can’t wait!
