We got engaged….

By Morné Hamlyn on November 28, 2009

Melissa and I got engaged on the 6th November….

I organized for us to take a Helicopter flip over the Drakensberg with Mpumalanga Heli Co.( and “popped” the important question on top of the escarpment. It was truley, in combination, one of the best experiences of my life!!

I got the ring in India last year and it is a “Star of India” Ruby with 2 Diamonds. This unique Ruby shows a six legged STAR with the right light reflecting on the stone. It is caused by natural silk grains in the stone. Here the STAR is shown in the flash of my camera…

  5. Hi Morné & Melissa

    Congrats on your engagement. Hope you have a great life together. Love the ring. Very original as was the proposal location, if a little noisy.

    Thank you for a great safari in October.

    Kind regards

    Christine & Alexi Blong
