    Default $12,000 Engagement Ring Floats Away in Balloon

    I know this isn't fashion related but I thought you guys might like to read it.

    LONDON (Reuters) - It is the one moment every man wants to get right -- and which London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji could hardly have got more wrong.


    The luckless 28 year-old's dreams of giving his sweetheart, Leanne, 26, the ultimate proposal have literally vanished into thin air.

    Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

    But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring -- and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend -- sailing away over the rooftops.

    "I couldn't believe it," he told The Sun newspaper.

    "I just watched as it went further and further into the air.

    "I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me."

    Hajji spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, without success.

    "I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," he said.

    "But I had to tell her the story -- she went absolutely mad. Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."

    He is hoping the ring will still turn up.

    "It would be amazing if someone found it," he added.

    Hahaha!!! What about the old engagement ring in the champagne glass trick... where the unsuspecting girlfriend ends up choking on the ring.
    I guess she shouldn't be that mad at him, after all the idea was sweet. Stupid... but sweet.

    If he was actually serious and this really happened... and he isn't just trying to get the insurance money for it.... I would say that he needs to dump the fiancee. What a bitch.

    That sucks so bad. I would feel horrible if I were the girl. I'd be thinking he saved up all that money and put some thought into it (maybe not enough, I mean at least the thought of a balloon weight, they're about $3 and would have saved him $12000). But he was trying to be unique and cute and would be devastated, and I definately wouldn't demand a new ring.

    How horrible, but entertaining at once

    ^ i agree. i was just annoyed that he couldn't be more careful. seriously, balloons FLOAT...and its very easy for them to float AWAY....it's common sense. of course i feel bad for the guy though. and if i were his gf, i wouldn't demand another ring because love isn't about, for example, a big expensive diamond...
