At Diamond Foundry we are passionate about empowering couples to tell their own love story through our world-class above ground diamonds. We decided to award one lucky couple with their dream proposal through our Perfect Proposal contest. The idea was simple: people from around the country were invited to enter the contest by submitting their idea of a Perfect Proposal. We were inspired by all of the incredible stories that were submitted and were honored to be a part of one of the most significant moments in their lives.  

We’re thrilled to finally be announcing the winners of Diamond Foundry’s Perfect Proposal. 

The Grand Prize Winners: Alan and Kayli

Congratulations to Alan and Kayli, who won their Perfect Proposal: an action-packed treasure hunt around the island of Kauai leading up to an engagement ring Alan designed himself via Diamond Foundry’s 3D Design Studio.


The day of adventure began when the Diamond Foundry team arrived at Alan’s home in Kauai. Kayli was under the impression that they had been selected to be featured in a Hawaiian promotional campaign that they would be shooting that day. 


Under Alan’s instruction, the team informed Kayli that there was going to be a treasure hunt around the island. They handed her the first clue in a small treasure chest, leading them on a scuba adventure.

Next up was a clue that led them to a helicopter ride, marking Kayli’s first time flying in a helicopter. Once inside, Kayli received a clue to go to a sugar plantation-- the exact sugar plantation where the couple met.

After a romantic hour-long helicopter ride, passing over some of Kauai’s most iconic views, they arrived at the plantation. Alan quickly disappeared to the bathroom. In his absence, Kayli was handed her last clue telling her to go to the spot where Alan first asked her to be his girlfriend. Now it’s getting good!

 Just when she thought that there was no more room for surprises, she turned the corner to encounter forty of her closest friends and family gathered around. A live guitarist started strumming and Alan walked out with yet another bombshell: a custom Diamond Foundry ring and a question that would change their lives forever.

Spoiler alert: she said yes!

In addition to their perfect proposal, the pair also received an original illustration by Alessandra Olanow and a personalized momento written by the best selling romance novelist, Sylvia Day. Now it’s up to them to write the rest of their story!
