Honolulu, HI

Honolulu, meaning “calm port” in Hawaiin, is the largest city in Hawaii and is located on Oahu, meaning “the gathering place”, which is the third largest of the Hawaiin Islands. Our unique city has many significant memorial statues and museums connected to our sacred Polynesian culture and of course, the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. Home of the Mai Tai cocktail and the Diamond Head dormant volcano next to Waikiki Beach, our vibrant nightlife and luxurious resorts allow you to enjoy everything we have to offer. In addition to being ranked high for world livability and the 2nd safest U.S. city to live in, we have some of the best local jewelry stores in Honolulu, HI

Your trusted local jeweler will be able to help you find or create your custom diamond engagement ring, but also find the most romantic proposal location for a memorable diamond ring-reveal. We met with some of our local diamond jeweler partners and asked them: Where is the best place to propose in Honolulu, HI? Here’s what they had to say:

“One of our customers got engaged in Diamond Head Guy, which is a volcanic tuff cone on the island of Oahu. He and his fiancee hiked up the trail to the top, where he proposed to her. It’s one of the most stunning views in Hawaii.” – Robert Palma

“There are a few great places to propose in Honolulu, but the best place is definitely the beach! The beach is an incredible choice, especially with a sunset on the beach.

When she looked up, he was on one knee with the ring! It was one of the most romantic and memorable proposals we’ve ever heard here at Pacific Diamonds Wedding Rings in Honolulu.” – Amber Faurot

Honolulu, HI, Love Story and Proposal : Daria and Andy

Proposal in Honolulu, HI

How They Met: Andy and Daria both met while in a high school Spanish class but didn’t begin dating until years later. They bumped into each other at a local bar and talked for a few hours, exchanged numbers, and have been inseparable ever since. 

How They Asked: Andy is the king of coordinating surprises so it was sort-of expected that his proposal would be no different. After the Christmas holiday season, they planned to go on a trip to the gorgeous island of Hawaii. They wanted to get away from the Seattle gray and rainy weather and visit Daria’s BFF, Hannah, who lives with her dog and husband in Honolulu, HI. 

Once they had arrived and settled in, Hannah asked if she could take a photo of them that she could use for work. Daria thought nothing of this request, and was also excited to have an updated picture of the two of them together. They headed out in time for sunset and decided to bring drinks to celebrate Andy’s birthday.

Hannah brought the couple to a gorgeous, secluded beach that they had never been to. As they were unloading the car, Daria noticed a bunch of sparklers, but Hannah quickly stuffed them into a backpack she was carrying and hurried them both out of the car. Daria assumed that she had brought them, again, for Andy’s birthday, but wondered why Hannah didn’t share this information with her. 

Hannah took some shots of them while her husband gave them tips on how to pose (what a pro!) and eventually offered to open a bottle of booze! Within seconds, sparklers were lit and Andy got down on one knee. Daria was overwhelmed with emotion and immediately understood that none of this was for a birthday celebration, but a proposal! She somehow managed to let out a “yes” through streaming tears of joy and they all raised a glass to their future together. 

Bottom Line…

She’ll say Mahalo for the thought you put into your Honolulu, HI, proposal and, more specifically, her “nani” diamond engagement ring. Log onto to paired up with your local diamond jeweler in Honolulu, HI, to pop the question with her dream ring!
