In the latest issue of Life & Style Magazine Real Housewives of Orange County Star Gretchen Rossi and her fiancÃ©, 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, GretchenÂ popped the question to Slade with a black-gold and black-diamond ring, atop the roof of the AT&T building in LA. â€œIt was a really emotional moment!â€ Gretchen gushes.Â â€œI donâ€™t do anything by the book,” she says of proposing.
â€œIâ€™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.â€œLife is too short, Iâ€™m in love with this man, and I needed to take the plunge!â€ Gretchen said.
