[intro]When it comes to proposals the options are boundless, the trouble is making sure that it’s perfect. The best proposal is a very subjective thing and is different for every couple. Whilst some people may love being the centre of attention at the top of the Empire State Building, others would simply die of embarrassment and shudder of the thought of it for evermore. The key things to get right are the time, the place, the ring and then all you can do is wait for an answer…[/intro]
Here at Highworth Insurance we have insured countless engagement rings which have been the heart of beautiful proposals all around the world. We can insure engagement rings within a standalone policy or as part of your home and contents policy, and we can tailor a policy to your requirements, providing all risks cover worldwide. Therefore, whether you propose in the shadow of the Pyramids, inside the Sydney Opera House or overlooking Negara Falls, wherever you are in the world and whatever the answer, you at least have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the ring is safe.
Given our experience in insuring engagement rings, we thought we’d compile our top 5 suggestions for romantic places to propose. The internet is awash with romantic destination ideas and the world is full of stunning places to pop the question, so rather than choose one over another, we’ve decided to give you some broader ideas…
A City Break
Venice, Rome, Paris, London, New York, Prague, Vienna, Barcelona, Marrakech, Amsterdam, Rio De Janeiro … need we go on? The world is your oyster when it comes to romantic city breaks; all overflowing with culture, excitement, terrific food, fine hotels and one hundred and one perfect opportunities to ask the big question.
On a Boat
There is great scope for proposing on the water. Whether you chose the romantic waterways of Venice in a gondola, somewhere hot and sunny on a yacht, the culture and cuisine onboard a 5* cruise ship or the nostalgic charm of a canal boat. Just be sure you can both swim and you have engagement ring insurance – just in case you or it ends up in the drink!Get a Quote
At a Famous Landmark
There are plenty of famously romantic landmarks to choose from and some have the advantage of being in some of the most romantic cities in the world. One thing they all have in common are highly impressive views; whether you chose the Taj Mahal, The Eiffel Tower, The Shard, The CN Tower, The Sydney Opera House, The Ancient Pyramids or The Empire State Building, you can be sure of some very impressive proposal photos to share with the world once you get the answer you are hoping for.
There’s nothing like getting back to nature and reveling in the power and beauty of the natural world for creating a dramatic setting for a romantic proposal. Be it exploring the wilds of Africa, admiring Niagara Falls, standing at the edge of The Grand Cannon, diving on the Great Barrier Reef, trekking the Inca Trail or standing at the foot of any number of amazing mountains, such as Mount Fuji, Table Mountain, Uluru, Kilimanjaro, The Matterhorn… They all share a timeless authority perfect for laying the first foundation for a long and happy marriage together.
Where you had your first date
One for the romantics… Proposals need not be flamboyant or staged in far flung locations (unless you’d like them to be) sometimes the simple and best answer is to find somewhere that’s meaningful to both of you, like where you had your first date or shared your first kiss and relive those memories whilst making new ones.Get a Quote

Engagement ring insurance is peace of mind for both of you and not something you want to worry about whilst you’re spreading the good news and planning a wedding.
