Names, ages: Sylvia Pilawa (29) + Chris Oppito (33)
Located: New Jersey
LB Adviser: Kathryn


Q: How did you find LB?
I have been following Lauren B. on instagram for a few years now, I have always loved looking
at all the pretty rings for inspiration.


Q: What made you choose LB for your ring design/purchase?
We knew we wanted to do an oval eternity band as our engagement ring. I loved Lauren B. and
knew that they carried the Oval eternity band, which a lot of local jewelers did not, especially in
the ct. weight that we were looking for.


Q: Did you work remotely/in-store for your purchase?
We took a trip into the city to take a look at the ring.


Q: What design did you choose for your ring, and why?
For so long, I thought I wanted a traditional engagement ring, a solitare with a simple oval
diamond. I ended up seeing the Oval eternity band and something just sparked! I couldn’t get
over how beautiful it was and how different for an engagement ring! I showed Chris and he
loved the idea of doing that as our engagement ring. I like to think of myself as more simple but I like things to make a statement and this ring does just that! It’s also perfect to wear at all times. We have a four year old and my ring doesn’t get in the way I can wear it wherever we go.



Q: Tell us about the proposal: where and when did it take place?
We wouldn’t really say we had a “proposal” - We have been together for 6 years and have a
son who is four. We decided to put getting married on hold until our son grew up a little bit and
we felt the timing was right. In the beginning of the year we started to discuss getting married
this coming year and that’s when we decided to go ring shopping. Our son, has known about
mommy and daddy getting married and mommy getting a ring. When Chris got the ring, he
came home, I was in the kitchen getting dinner together and all of a sudden him and our son
Cameron came running into the kitchen. Cameron was holding the ring box open and said
“mommy will you marry daddy.”  It was such a cute and special moment seeing my boys and
knowing this was our life and forever! It was so cute. We ended up having dinner at home,
drank wine and danced around the kitchen celebrating as a family.

Q: How do you feel about the process overall – good experience? Would/did you refer LB to others?
The process was so easy and seamless!! We knew exactly what we wanted and we loved
working with Lauren B. We highly recommend Lauren B and will refer to anyone that is
planning on getting married.
