DALLAS, Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The online Museum of Diamonds announced today that it is inviting owners of bridal diamonds to share their stories of engagement and romance so they can be immortalized at the Museum. This new feature will showcase bridal diamond stories alongside famous gems throughout history including the Hope Diamond, the Regent, and the Kohinoor.

"Every diamond has a story," noted CEO Jacques Voorhees. "At the Museum, we feature famous and named diamonds typically resting in museums and private collections. But the stories of romance from bridal diamonds are often no less interesting, and now these can be preserved and shared as well."

"The story of the proposal often provides the most colorful material," explained Vorhees. "For example, we feature one couple who were on vacation hiking through old mines near Silverton, Colorado, looking for interesting rocks. The guy pretended to find one on the ground, and he picked up the ring and said to his girlfriend, 'Honey, I think this rock belongs to you.'"

The diamond is listed under the first names of the couple, such as Jerry and Elizabeth, and the stories discrete page in the Museum can easily be shared with friends and relatives on social media. Anonymity is available for those who wish to stay private and there is no cost for the service.

"There's another story of the young man who'd spent his teenage years picking strawberries," continued Voorhees. "He used that money to buy the ring he proposed with, despite his mother's disapproval. Or the story of couple who named their diamond 'Sea Otter' because sea otters sleep holding hands, and this couple does too."

Anyone with a romantic story to share of how they met, where they went on their first date, something embarrassing that happened on the honeymoon, or any amusing or unique experience associated with the romance is now welcome to register their diamond in the Museum and share the story.

"Seeing our diamond, and our own personal story, preserved in the Museum of Diamonds made everything so special," noted Courtney Biebl. "Not only does it make my own diamond a true symbol of our romance, but it was incredibly fun just remembering those early days—those early emotions—of when we met and so forth and sharing my thoughts and feelings at the time. Now I know those are preserved and one day my own children and grandchildren will enjoy seeing them, and knowing how I felt about their father or grandfather, etc. How cool is that?"
