One of the joys of our work is being part of the engagement journey from start to finish. We love nothing more than joining each couple from the initial stages of ring design and proposal ideas, to hearing all about the moment she said ‘yes’.
When Andrew McMillian stepped into our jewellery store late last year, we were one of the three Adelaide engagement ring jewellers that he had decided to visit in his quest for the perfect ring.
“I knew very little about rings and diamonds, so I was nervous and unsure where to go and how it all worked,” he said.
He found Andrew Mazzone by far the most relaxed, understanding and helpful of the jewellers he went to, instantly feeling welcome and comfortable. As each visit passed, the staff became more personal – remembering his name as soon as he walked into the shop – something Andrew really appreciated.
“On the first few visits we started with the basics. The staff talked me through each step of the design process, helping me understand each phase. I received a drawing of the engagement ring that was perfect – it was exactly what I had in mind,” Andrew said.
After nine weeks, the ring was finished and Andrew was all set to surprise his then-girlfriend Kylie with a trip to NSW.
“All that was left for me to do was pop the question to my beautiful girlfriend,” he said.

Kylie explained that Andrew told her to pack her bags as they were going away, but she had no idea where.
“I was completely stunned, as he had even organised for me to have days off work without me knowing,” she said.
The pair, who had been together for more than two years, travelled to the stunning Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat in NSW. One night after arriving back at the resort, Kylie found a room covered in candles and rose petals. Champagne was on ice, and dinner was ready to be cooked.
“That was when Andrew got down on one knee and asked me to be with him forever,” Kylie said.
Andrew presented Kylie with this stunning solitaire round brilliant cut diamond ring (pictured above).
“The ring is just perfect. As soon as I saw it, I instantly had tears,” Kylie said.
It’s hearing about moments like these that bring such happiness to us at Andrew Mazzone. Jewellery has the power to create lifelong memories, and holds such a special place in the heart of many.
After chatting with both Kylie and Andrew about their Adelaide engagement ring, they said: “We cannot thank the staff at Andrew Mazzone enough for their time and attention to detail. Thank you for your kind service and willingness to make sure the ring was exactly what we wanted. We love it!”
Kylie also won’t have to look very far for her wedding photographer for her big day, working along side her sister at Alyce Capurso Photography. We are sure the wedding photos will be absolutely gorgeous!
Andrew and Kylie, it was such a pleasure to join you both on the start of your journey and we would love to be part of the rest of your love story along the way. We wish you every happiness for your future as husband and wife!
Remember, we’re able to create an engagement ring for any budget and style. We’d love for you to visit us in Pulteney Street to discuss your options, and to join you on your journey.
