Gauteng woman can expect marriage proposal soon as boyfriend snaps up ring on #BlackFriday sale
A man who is planning to propose to his girlfriend woke up at about 4am on Friday to get to the mall to buy a “gorgeous” engagement ring for a discounted price.
“She doesn’t know, but I’m so excited about our lives together. I saw this ring about a week ago and I wanted it for her. I hope she loves it and says yes,” said Kevin Bailey*.
“She is also doing her shopping, but I had to lie and say I’m off to the bathroom so I can do my thing,” he told TimesLIVE.
He selected a 9-carat, white gold diamond band that went for R3,999 on the #BlackFriday sale. He saved R1,999.
He and his girlfriend have been together for four years.
“The fact that I’m buying it on sale means nothing, it’s beautiful and I like it so much. She’s so patient and humble, this is it,” said the hopeful boyfriend.
