A Love Story Journey: Gordon and Felice's Path to Forever with Gen.K Jewelry®

May 14 2024


Gordon and Felice’s story is a testament to the unexpected twists and turns that life can take. What began as a chance introduction through a mutual friend turned into a beautiful journey of love, adventure, and commitment. This is not just about two people in love but also a tale of how they chose Gen.K to be an integral part of their special moments.

A Match Made by Destiny

Their story took root with the help of a mutual friend, who had a grand plan to unite their paths. Gordon, a financial advisor with a busy schedule, had no inkling of the matchmaking agenda when he was introduced to Felice for a financial consultation. Little did they know that this professional advice session would soon blossom into profound conversations about life, values, and shared hobbies. What started as an investment plan gradually transformed into a deeper connection.

As Gordon reflects, “We always joked about what started as an investment plan turned out to be a lifetime plan.” It’s a reminder that sometimes, love finds us when we least expect it. Interestingly, their paths had crossed years earlier at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday party, but it was only five years later that their connection truly ignited.

Of Adventure and Togetherness

Among the many beautiful chapters in their love story, one stands out with vivid clarity, which was their enchanting 21-day road trip across New Zealand.

From Auckland to the breathtaking landscapes of the South Island, their adventure embodied the essence of togetherness. Hidden beaches, lush forests, stargazing by the river, and visits to vintage shops, all these moments celebrated the unique bond they shared. This road trip wasn’t just a travel experience but a celebration of their unique connection and laid the foundation for their engagement.

The moment of certainty

Every love story has a turning point when one realises that this is the person they want to spend their life with. For Gordon, that moment arrived during a late-night gift delivery spree for his clients. In the midst of it all, as they both persevered, he looked at Felice and realised that she was his partner for every adventure and everyday moment.

As Gordon recounted, “The dedication, the shared laughter, and the unwavering teamwork made it crystal clear. It’s a memory we cherish – a night of giving that gave us so much more, the certainty that we were each other’s forever support.”

Navigating life’s challenges together

Their journey wasn’t without its challenges. Gordon’s demanding career and commitment as a national frisbee player left little room for quality time together. As Felice recalled, “The lack of connection and quality time strained our relationship.” Recognizing the importance of addressing this, they carved out dedicated “us” time on Sundays after his frisbee training. Open communication, compromise, and mutual understanding helped them prioritise shared experiences and reconnect authentically.

A proposal six months in the making

Their proposal spanned six months filled with meticulous planning and heartfelt intentions. With the help of Felice’s best friends, Gordon crafted a surprise proposal that would forever be etched in their memories, which included designing a ring that featured Felice’s love for jade and pearls.

On the day of their departure for New Zealand, Changi Airport held a heartwarming surprise. Close friends and family had gathered at 6 a.m. to create a picturesque setup, spelling out “Will you marry me?” with massive balloons. Each friend and family member handed out Polaroids with messages, confessing Gordon’s love to Felice.

Surrounded by loved ones at the airport, amidst the buzz of travellers and the dawn’s early light, Gordon proposed. To his surprise, Felice proposed to him too!

Entrusting Gen.K with Precious Moments

Gordon discovered Gen.K Jewelry® through another jeweler who recommended it while he was looking for jade jewelry. What set us apart was our designer Kayde’s passion for turning stories into art and her dedication to understanding Gordon and Felice’s unique needs and wants.

Furthermore, our interactions with Gordon and Felice went beyond the typical client-jeweler relationship. Iris, our dedicated team member, was there to guide them through the selection process, making it enjoyable and stress-free. It was important for us to create an atmosphere of warmth and authenticity, ensuring that they felt comfortable and welcomed at every step.

Their decision to entrust Gen.K with their proposal rings was solidified by the breathtaking design and meticulous craftsmanship. Each piece of jewelry that Gordon and Felice chose from us now carries with it the emotions and memories of their love story. When they wear their engagement rings, they are not just wearing symbols of commitment; they are wearing tokens infused with love and shared experiences.

And as Gordon and Felice move forward, we are honoured to have played a part in their love story. Their Guo Da Li ceremony marked a significant milestone, and we eagerly await their wedding day, when our wedding bands and Si Dian Jin sets will be a part of their celebration.

Advice for future couples

Finally, they offer valuable advice to other couples embarking on their own proposal, emphasising the importance of authenticity and capturing the moment.

“Authenticity is key. Stay true to who you are as a couple. Proposal is about professing your love and reminding each other about your love. It doesn’t always have to be the men who plan for a proposal, ladies can propose too! Don’t forget to capture the moment.”

In the end, Gordon and Felice’s love story, intertwined with Gen.K Jewelry®, is a testament to the power of serendipity and the beauty of authentic connections. It’s a story of love, adventure, and the enduring significance of cherished jewelry pieces that represent the most meaningful moments of their journey together.
