Woman Had No Idea Her Boyfriend Hid An Engagement Ring In Her Necklace

An Australian couple were on vacation in Scotland when the man popped the question, but it's something he'd been planning to do for a long time. Instead of a ring box, he asked her for the necklace that he'd made her a year earlier.

She was stunned when he popped it open to reveal an engagement ring, and couldn't believe the ring had been there the whole time.

A man named Terry made his girlfriend, Anna, a necklace for their first anniversary as a couple. He carved it out of out of Huon pine, a wood native to Tasmania. Anna loved it and wore it every day for a year.

What she didn't know was that the necklace was hiding an even bigger surprise. When Terry made it, he was already set on proposing. He carved out a space to hid an engagement ring, then sealed the two halves together.

For the whole year, Anna went around with that necklace not knowing just how special it really was. Terry waited until it felt like just the right time to reveal the big secret.

The couple planned a trip to Smoo Cave in Scotland, a trip they had long discussed taking. It was going to be special, but Terry wanted to make it extra-special. Even the name 'Smoo' had special meaning.

“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,” Terry said to the HuffPost.

Terry ought to know about hiding places.

When the couple arrived, Terry asked Anna to borrow her necklace so he could take some pictures of it draped on a rock. She handed it to him and he went to snap the photo. Then he set up the cameras to take pictures of them in front of the vacation destination.

What Anna didn't know was that Terry had cracked open the secret seal in her jewelry. They posed for pictures and he pretended to be giving her back her necklace, only to get down on one knee and pop it open like a ring box.

Anna was stunned, but she immediately pounced on Terry and gave him a resounding "yes!"

When Terry told her the ring had been in there the whole time, she could hardly believe it.

“It actually took her a couple of moments to understand that the ring had been in the necklace the entire time since I gave it to her,” Terry explained.

“She flipped out ― ‘Wait, it’s been in there the entire time?! I could have lost it, you f--king idiot!’, which was a hilarious mix of happy and angry.”

The couple are busy making plans for their future. “We are hoping to buy a house with land so we can have the wedding at home with our friends and family, in a very relaxed fashion that we think matches us ― rather than having a gigantic, glamorous wedding, which isn’t like us at all,” Terry said.

With Terry, Anna is surely in for a lifetime of surprises.
