Best proposal ever? Woman wears ring for months without knowing

Meet Terry and Anna.

The newly crowned king and queen of romantic marriage proposals.

Anna wore her engagement ring around her neck for an entire year – and she didn't have a clue.

See, Terry concealed the ring in a necklace he made to celebrate the couple's first anniversary in 2015, but never told her what was inside.  

"She absolutely loved it," he told GoodHousekeeping. "She wore it every day and everywhere we went, and pretty much never took it off."

It wasn't until Terry popped the question in Scotland in November 2016 that the hidden treasure was revealed. 

"I picked Smoo Cave because it was a place we had talked about visiting since we first met, and 'smoo' comes from an old Norse word for 'hiding place,' so I think I get extra points for that one"

"Before we actually went down to the cave, I asked if I could have the necklace to take some photos of it among the rocks, which gave me the chance to break the seal with the knife," explained Terry.

The hopeless romantic then got down on one knee and revealed the ring that Anna had been carrying with her for months. 

Of course she said yes! 

"Now, with anything else I give her, she always inspects to see if something is hidden inside!"

Big congrats to the happy couple!
