John Hurin & Rebecca Hallahan

Our story is simple; from the moment we met something felt special. People would ask me what I was looking for in a woman and I couldn’t explain it but I would always say, “I will just know inside.”

When I met Rebecca, I knew because my heart told me that she was the one! When the time came for me to start thinking about getting a ring I decided to visit Tapper’s in West Bloomfield. I had my reasons…one was that Rebecca and I did a little ring shopping earlier in the year and she told me that Tapper’s had the most beautiful rings. She was right about the quality and beauty of the rings and I felt comfortable with the people that helped me. I wanted to design a custom ring and surprise the love of my life with something special that would remind her about the how much I loved her every time she looked at it.

Besides the design of the setting I wanted something else unique about this special ring. I wanted a ruby set into the back of the band so that when she looked at the palm of her hand she would see it. This was to symbolize that “she held my heart in the palm of her hand”! I worked with Nina Eisenberg at the West Bloomfield store and she along with the designers helped me design and build this one of a kind perfect ring. They also did all of this in just two weeks! The rest was up to me now. On New Year’s Eve 2011 I took out my guitar and played “Marry Me” by the band Train and asked her to marry me as I presented her with this special ring. I explained to her the significance of the ruby and with tears of joy running down her face she told me YES! She gets complemented on her ring everywhere we go and loves telling the story of the ruby.

Thanks, Tapper’s!
