The winner will receive a 1.12 carat total weight Hearts On Fire® Transcend Halo Dream Solitaire diamond engagement ring worth $10,250, as well as the chance to propose on the stage of the Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park during the December Nights holiday festival on December 2nd, 2011. What could be better than surprising her with an incredible rock in front of friends, family, and thousands of excited onlookers!?

December Nights has been a San Diego tradition for 34 years, drawing over 300,000 visitors in two days. The event brings together family, friends, and fellow San Diegans to spread the joy of the holidays, learn more about Balboa Park's important position in San Diego's culture, and inaugurate the “most wonderful time of the year.” This year it goes on from 5pm to 10pm on Friday, December 2nd and from 12pm to 10pm on Saturday, December 3rd. As anyone who's roamed this famous and historic San Diego landmark knows, a truly multicultural experience awaits those who step foot onto any square foot of the park, and December Nights will be no different! Guests will enjoy food from the International Houses, as well as music and dance performances from organizations such as the San Diego Junior Theatre, San Diego Civic Youth Ballet, and Del Cerro Baptist's Christmas Story Tree. There will be a great opportunity to pick up unique gifts to finish off your shopping checklist, both in the museum gift shops and at the hundreds of vendor tents throughout the park. And all with a Santa-sized helping of holiday cheer! Plus, participating Balboa Park museums will open their doors free of charge from 5pm to 9pm during both evenings. The entire city is thrilled to celebrate this festive time of year at San Diego's largest free community festival!

Every year, young men vie for the chance to propose to their sweethearts on stage at December Nights, but not until this year has there been a formal opportunity to do so. After Leo Hamel Fine Jewelers notifies the lucky winner earlier that week, he'll have a few days to coordinate how to get his girlfriend to December Nights. During the December 2nd opening ceremony on the stage of the magnificent Organ Pavilion, the Mayor of San Diego will greet the attendees with a short speech. He will then light a giant Christmas tree, which will set the perfect backdrop for this special proposal. The winner and his lady—who will probably be very confused by now!—will climb on stage and he will ask for her hand in marriage in the most romantic way he can imagine. Tears of joy are sure to be shed by the couple and happy memories will be shared by the audience! This is the start of their happily ever after.

An exciting element of this contest is that the fortunate winner will be proposing with a Hearts On Fire® Transcend Halo Dream Solitaire diamond engagement ring. But this is not just any ring! With sparkling diamonds totaling over 1.12 carats, this ring boasts some serious bling—in fact, all Hearts On Fire® jewelry is made with the world's most perfectly cut diamonds. This perfect cut, patented by Hearts On Fire®, gives each diamond an astonishing sheen, far more brilliant than ordinary diamonds. The Transcend ring in particular has a halo of diamonds surrounding the center stone, as well as diamonds down the sides of the white gold band. It is the epitome of modern sophistication and is valued at $10,250!

In addition to the incredible ring and the once in a lifetime opportunity to propose with it, the winner of this contest will receive a fabulous wedding package! Captured by Aimee's Aimee Westcott will be taking engagement photos of the couple. Her talent behind the camera and ability to see unique angles and subsequent shots has landed her multiple features on national wedding blog sites such as Style Me Pretty. Carrie Hobson, the cake designer behind Sugarlump Cakery, has contributed an engagement party cake to the wedding package. A self-taught dessert baker and decorator, she utilizes her innate creativity to craft custom cakes—from a Gibson guitar replica to a henna tattoo-inspired wedding cake—for her clients. The winners will also get their teeth whitened for their big day by Dr. David Donnelly's Cosmetic and General Dentistry. Dr. Donnelly and his skilled staff have worked on thousands of patients in San Diego to make their dreams of a perfect smile come true daily. Wedding day hair styling for the winning bride and groom plus wedding party will be done at Jet Rhys Hair, which has been voted one of the nation's best salons in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Self magazines.
