Robyn Dixon Explains the Meaning Behind Her Non-Traditional Pink Engagement Ring
The Real Housewives of Potomac beauty "didn’t want a diamond ring…that didn’t work out too well the first time."
Former pro-basketball player Juan Dixon popped the big question on December 13 while at a holiday party, but this was far from a spontaneous proposal. Juan worked with New York City-based jewelry designer Nicole Kopelman of Nicole Rose Jewelry (a jeweler beloved by many Bravolebs) to create a gorgeous, non-traditional ring.
On December 16, The Real Housewives of Potomac mom shared a series of sweet pictures from her memorable night as she explained exactly why Juan opted for a blush-hued stone for her head-turning five carat sparkler. "An untraditional relationship calls for a non-traditional ring," she said in her caption. "I told a little birdie that if Juan ever proposed, I didn’t want a diamond ring…that didn’t work out too well the first time, lol. I fell in love with the Pink Morganite stone because I wanted something with significance and meaning."
"Morganite represents unconditional love - something that our relationship exhibits and has relied upon," she added.
Kopelman told BravoTV.com exclusively that Juan was very involved in the design process for the piece, which features a five carat emerald cut morganite center stone set in 18K white gold: "He picked the design himself, and we both decided on a morganite center stone since she likes pink," Kopelman offered. The flirty blush stone is surrounded by a double halo of 1.2 carats of diamonds and shines almost as bright as their future.
