Diamonds Direct Love Story: Lindsay Hamric and Alan Walker

Lindsay and Alan’s Love Story

The Proposal 
Our engagement story is magical. We got engaged in Maui, Hawaii. Alan won free flights to Hawaii, and we decided to go for my birthday. He said he had arranged a little birthday something with the concierge, and we had to be in the lobby at 6 pm. When we entered the lobby, a photographer told us we were getting a complimentary photo shoot around the hotel for my birthday. We took some pictures and ended up on the beach as the sun was setting. Alan dropped down on his knee and proposed! It was the most surreal moment. He led me to a cabana that had champagne, roses and candles. It was midnight in Birmingham, but that didn’t stop us from calling all our loved ones at home and waking them up with our exciting news! Definitely the best birthday ever!
We came home on Sunday, exhausted. We walked into my parents’ house, and I was STUNNED. Our best friends and family were there for a surprise engagement party.

The Ring
I definitely wanted a say in the ring. Alan asked if I would go ahead and look at some. So my mom, my sister, and I had the best girls’ day! Diamonds Direct was having an event, and they had top designers in the store. I showed the designer from C Gonshor a picture; she im-mediately brought out exactly what I was looking for. I modified it to a Channel-set Halo because I thought it made the center diamond pop. Then, Alan and I went to Diamonds Direct together. He was so interested in the 4 C’s (cut, carat, clarity, color). It was his idea to add side diamonds. He was adorable picking out the center stone. Once we picked a stone, he asked Emily to make sure there wasn’t a better stone in our price range. Emily found one in another state. She had the diamond flown in that week, and it was beautiful!! Alan is so proud of this ring; he loves it and loves how we designed it. It’s so cute that he cared so much and was so involved in the process.
