The sun was setting and the waves were gently lapping against the side of the yacht— the perfect conditions for an outdoor engagement ceremony. As they gazed into each other’s eyes, a white cloth dropped and revealed the “Marry Me” sign. He got down on one knee with a sparkling ring, against a cheering backdrop of family and friends.
No, this isn’t a scene from a Korean drama, but what went down during Nick Teo’s and Hong Ling’s romantic, squeal-worthy engagement that is currently the talk of the town.
The two MediaCorp stars have been dating for the past seven years and recently got engaged during Hong Ling’s 28th birthday celebration. The couple had just finished singing the birthday song when Nick popped the question.
Now, let’s take a closer look at their engagement ring from SK Jewellery that is designed to represent Nick’s & Hong Ling’s love story.
THE STAR CARAT DIAMOND THAT SHINES BRIGHTER THAN THE REST
There are so many important elements to an engagement ring, but the diamond is definitely the star of the show. Nick’s and Hong Ling’s engagement ring is from our Star Carat Diamond collection.
What makes SK Jewellery’s Star Carat Diamonds stand out from the rest is that they are created from the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) method, a superior way of making diamonds. The gems grow one-dimensionally in a vacuum, resulting in an organised structure that is physically, chemically, and optimally identical to a mined diamond. These stones are then formulated with natural colours like their mined cousins.
Buyers can rest assured that every gem from the Star Carat collection is also graded on the same standards as naturally mined diamonds. It is internationally certified as Type IIA by IGI, a world-renowned, independent gemological lab.
When you choose a Star Carat Diamond as an engagement ring, you can get more for less— a gemstone that is nearly 50 per cent larger than a mined diamond for exactly the same price.
Nick and Hong Ling chose the six-prong setting, such as the setting on the Star Carat Astral Diamond Ring– one of the most classic and popular engagement ring settings around the world. This ring setting boasts a simple design that showcases the diamond in all its brilliance. It is also one of the most secure settings for your precious stone. As the prongs grip the diamond from every side, they provide additional support for the centre stone, making it less likely to become loose over time.
