The Chupi Engagement Series: Roisin & Tom

Wednesday, February 19th, 2020

Meet Roisin and Tom, the loveliest couple who are very close to our hearts here at Chupi. Roisin, our brilliant Production Lead here at Chupi, tells us about her gorgeous New York proposal and the story behind the very special grey diamond in her You Me & Magic engagement ring ..

Tom is English but went to college in Trinity, we met through mutual friends while I was living in London. We were on holiday in New York in mid January, and on the second day I had planned a day of major touristing that was going to end in Central Park followed by dinner. Looking back, Tom was super impatient to get to the park and didn’t want to stop anywhere else! 

In Central Park, Tom kept trying to get me to climb up onto the boulders but it was really snowy and slippy so I didn’t want to! I was determined not to sit down, I wanted to get to the Alice in Wonderland statue but he eventually persuaded me to sit on one of the benches and that’s where he proposed. I was in such shock, I briefly thought he was joking! As it turns, out Tom had been plotting with Chupi for quite some time. 

Before I ever worked at Chupi, I remember I had come across the brand while I was living in London. I loved the idea of having a beautiful piece that was made in Ireland while I was away from home. I remember when the first engagement rings launched and I just knew I wanted a grey diamond Chupi ring after that. 

I already knew I would love a Chupi engagement ring before I started working here. But since then my love for them has only grown! I adore the meaning behind all of the pieces, and I think the hawthorn twig bands are the perfect representation for something that is handmade in Ireland. My ring feels like a special heirloom piece, and I can pass down the story of it as well as the ring itself.

Tom had the best purchasing experience I think it’s possible to have! Chupi and some of my amazing teammates were involved from the beginning and he was so appreciative for all of their help and guidance. Tom had a pretty clear picture of what I wanted ( I may have sent one or two pictures before….) but the team took it to the next level and I cannot imagine a more perfect ring for me. 

I always knew that I wanted a You Me & Magic Two Carat Grey Diamond ring. I’m so lucky that I get to see the beautiful grey diamonds come into our studio, and I have fallen in love with countless ones over the years. But when this particular stone came in it truly was love at first sight! 

I couldn’t believe it when I opened the box and there was my perfect ring. 

Chupi didn’t want me to be suspicious in any way so she made it look like the ring had been sold. I was devastated when I thought it was gone but little did I know Tom had been in contact and the plan was in motion. I couldn’t believe it when I opened the box and there was my perfect ring. 

When I look down at my You Me & Magic Grey Diamond Ring I still can’t believe it’s mine and how everyone managed to give me the biggest surprise of my life! My Engagement Ring also reminds me of that amazing trip to New York, and how excited I am for everything that’s to come. 

We’re still very much in the engagement bubble and haven’t made any concrete plans. I do however have my eye on the Crown of Hope as a wedding band…
