In the latest issue of Life & Style Magazine Real Housewives of Orange County Star Gretchen Rossi and her fiancé, Slade Smiley show off the first photos of their his/hers engagement rings! As we previously reported, Gretchen proposed to Slade! After four months of planning her proposal, Gretchen popped the question to Slade with a black-gold and black-diamond ring, atop the roof of the AT&T building in LA. “It was a really emotional moment!” Gretchen gushes. “I don’t do anything by the book,” she says of proposing.
“I’ve never been so overwhelmed with just sheer joy and happiness!” Slade tells the magazine. What Gretchen didn’t know is Slade had a surprise of his own planned. Five days later, the couple went to Newport Jewelers in Newport Beach, Calif., where Slade presented Gretchen a ring: a 4-carat fancy yellow diamond surrounded by smaller stones designed by Danny Arik for Newport Jewelers.
Gretchen says she is not ashamed of being the one to propose.“Life is too short, I’m in love with this man, and I needed to take the plunge!” Gretchen said.
What do YOU think of Gretchen’s ring?
