Prospecting for love
Sparks flew when a Sunshine Coast sparky met an English backpacker nearly three-and-a-half years ago in Agnes Water. Jade Wells, a graphic designer, was working at a nearby farm when she met Ross Blake who was working on a close-by gas plant on Curtis Island, Gladstone Region. The couple spent stolen weekends together at Agnes Waters, a sleepy Central Queensland seaside town, where their love became as strong as a tidal current.
With a Secrets solitaire engagement ring in his pocket and love in his heart, Ross planned a return to Agnes Waters for a romantic couples’ weekend. The stage was set for the perfect proposal: a beach sunset, however rain put paid to that idea. With Plan B in train, Ross poured Jade a drink back at their beachside villa and revealed his secret for bringing her back to Agnes Waters: he loved her and wanted to be with her – forever.
A surprised Jade asked: “Are you sure?” before unequivocally saying ‘Yes’!
Ross, a good listener, picked up on hints from Jade who loved the Secrets brand.
“Jade said she liked the ethical side to simulated diamonds and thought the money saved could be better spent on our wedding or honeymoon,” Ross said.
“I had no idea what to choose, so Dina at the Noosa store was really helpful. First, she asked me if Jade wore lots of bling or just minimal jewellery.
“I told her Jade didn’t wear much jewellery, so she steered me towards a classic solitaire because it’s a timeless look.
“When I slipped it on Jade’s finger I realised it was a little too big, so together we went back to the store and had it re-sized. It was no problem.”
