Crispin Pearsecco is giving away a $10,000 pear-shaped engagement ring

If you’re thinking of proposing to the love of your life anytime soon, you’re probably well aware that engagement rings are one of the biggest wedding-associated costs. Even if you don’t fork over some serious cash and go the celebrity engagement ring route, you’re still likely to spend thousands of dollars — all before you even start to plan the wedding.

To help make your special day a bit less expensive, Crispin Pearsecco — an alternative twist to prosecco — is giving away a $10,000 diamond ring for one lucky couple’s upcoming proposal! To honor the pear flavor in their drink, the ring will include either a pear-shaped diamond or a band with pear diamonds.

In your story, make sure to include why you and your significant other are the perfect “pear,” even if it’s just that a pear-shaped diamond is your person’s dream engagement ring shape.
