You really have to hand over to people’s creativity, when it comes to popping the question to their would-be brides. What Terry, an Australian, had in mind was certainly original. When he fell head over heels for Anna, his girlfriend, he had already made up his mind to marry her. But, he just didn’t want to drop down on one knee and pop the question in the usual way, he wanted a bit of suspense and surprise.
Terry presented Anna with a necklace in 2015 to mark the occasion of their one-year anniversary of going steady. The necklace had a largish pendant made of Huon pine, a Tasmanian native wood. Terry had secretly placed an engagement ring inside the pendant and sealed it. When he presented the necklace to Anna, she was beside herself with joy and took it, not suspecting that the pendant contained the engagement ring. She continued wearing it for full one year.
