She said yes! ..but the diamond ring is quite loose man

Making the actual purchase is the first step in buying a proposal ring, not the last. After which comes the questions about 'after-sales services'.

One of the many considerations of meticulous buyers nowadays, is how to go about guesstimating the ring size and still be able to resize the ring without further hustle. In JannPaul, we offer 2 times free resizing into bigger or smaller ring size for 18k gold and 1 time for platinum. Furthermore, we would prefer to have your ring re-crafted when the size difference is too big, as altering the original ring would make the band go oval shape.

What's more amazing is that, as white, rose, or yellow gold oxidizes as part of the wear-and-tear process of the band, we offer 2 times free re-polishing and re-plating for gold and 1 time for platinum, which would turn your scratched or oxidized band back to its original glory!

Also, we thought of one of the many little things most ladies appreciate. What do you think of engraving a personal message inside your band, say your special date or maybe your initials? We offer 1 free laser engraving in either standard or cursive font. 

However,  I would recommend that you do it after your proposal for her to try the ring for a couple of days. This is to ensure that the ring size is suitable as further re-sizing of the ring will polish off your engraving.

All this, you can do any time after you made your purchase, no due dates, no deadlines…
Polishing and resizing would typically take 3-4 weeks (still depending on how big the ring size difference is) while engraving can be done in about 2 week time.

In addition, we would recommend for you to visit us at least once a year for us to do a quick prong check of your ring. This is to ensure the security of your diamond. In case that we need to tighten up the claws, we’ll do it free of charge as well.

Please do visit us for the full diamond consultation session, to answer all your inquiries for the biggest event of your life.

Falling. . . . in love!

Skydiving also known as parachuting is performed as a recreational activity. It is widely considered as an extreme sport due to the risk involved during the free-fall while parachute isn’t deployed yet. But how would you feel about the idea of professing your love after such a heart stopping free-fall?

Being in a 3 year relationship, Jazpar felt that it’s about time to tie the knot with his partner, Yen Ching. And though they’re not probably a perfect fit couple and don’t have a lot of common interest and stuff, as the young guy describes, somehow he felt that all gelled up together well.

To officially ask Yen’s hand, Jazpar did his due diligence in finding the perfect diamond ring and through social media and friend recommendation, he got to know about JannPaul.
Without any prior knowledge when it comes to diamond rings, he made an appointment with us only having a Carat preference and a proposal date in mind.

When asked what are his considerations to come up with the setting and diamond, he answered.. “First is the budget, then it’s the recommendation from you! =)”

In the end, he decided to go for a nice twirling design with side diamonds that gives the ring a soft flowing effect which compliments Yen’s endearing character. It holds in a dainty Super Ideal Cut diamond that suits Yen’s ring size perfectly.

To realize the plan, Jazpar had coordinated with the staffs of the sky diving company months before there scheduled holiday. And a day after Christmas was the long awaited moment for the young man.

Getting nervous but still trying to keep his composure, Jazpar dived first and prepared real fast before his sweet angel descends 😍 ..

 “Although there were periods of ups and downs, I'm glad you're always there by my side. I may not be the most romantic person you may know but I hope to be the one to give you happiness for the rest of your life… Will you marry me?”

Jazpar being asked to describe his experience in 2 words would simply say, it’s ‘nerve wrecking’ - whether it’s the dive or the proposal, only he knows!  😉

Congratulations Yen Ching and Kok Yong Jazpar!
