Guys like Daniel don’t come around every day. And according to Daniel, girls like Teresa don’t either. It is this sentiment that has crowned Daniel W. of Munster, Indiana the winner of Gemvara’s What a Guy contest.
On Tuesday afternoon, Daniel received an e-mail letting him know that he won the ring he designed for his fiancée and a Sony BRAVIA® 46’’ 3D HDTV. Talk about a sweet deal! Daniel was ecstatic.
All participants in the contest were asked to design a piece and write a short blurb about why they designed what they did. The entries with the most votes were then tallied and a panel of judges picked the winner from the top 10.
Here is Daniel’s story:
“Elegant. Unexpected. Feisty. Unique. Classic. These words don’t make sense on their own, but they do if you know Teresa. I get to marry the love of my life next year, and I can’t think of a better way to honor her than this beauty of a ring: a braided band that signifies our interconnected lives; dots of diamonds mark the many small moments that make up a lifetime; and a big, beautiful gemstone, unexpected, warm, fiery, one of a kind — like her. It’s not a solitaire so much as it is a promise for a beautiful future.”
The ring Daniel designed is the stunning Emerald Isle Ring in platinum featuring a bold fire opal with shimmering side diamonds. We can only imagine how beautiful it will look on Teresa’s finger.
Congratulations again to Daniel and Teresa, and thanks for all who participated. We loved reading each entry, and we hope they’ve inspired you as much as they have inspired us.
