We hope your manicure is in tip-top shape because this is one moment definitely going on the ‘Gram. Birmingham’s awe-inspiring views and distinctive parks and museums almost overshadow these gorgeous engagement rings. In addition to us doing half the work and scouting out locations for you, now is the perfect time to buy since Diamonds Direct is offering 0% APR over five years through September 31.

1. Railroad Park

There’s no space that quite matches the eccentric energy of Railroad Park and the same can be said for this Royal Jewelers’ engagement ring. Elle Woods approved, the pink art deco look is a head-turner. This out-of-the-box design even caught mega influencer McKenna Bleu’s eye.

  • Shop the designer: Royal Jewelers
  • Where: 1600 1st Ave S, Birmingham, AL 35233

2. The Alabama Theatre

If you’re feeling starstruck by your movie-like romance, what better place to propose than the Showplace of the South? The Classique ring plays to the vintage-inspired nostalgia you feel while walking into the 93-year-old Alabama Theatre, while also echoing the bold new energy each performance here offers.

Need a little inspo? One of our own team members at Bham Now recently chose the original movie palace as his special spot to ask the big question. (Yes, she said yes!)

  • Shop the designer: Classique
  • Where: 1817 3rd Ave N, Birmingham, AL 35203

3. Birmingham Botanical Gardens

As Birmingham’s largest living museum, The Birmingham Botanical Gardens hosts 67.5 acres and contains over 25 individualistic gardens, giving you lots of options to make the proposal totally unique to your relationship. This Coast floral-inspired engagement ring mimics the Gardens perfectly with a design as dainty as a flower but concept as inimitable the 12,000 different plants found throughout.

  • Shop the designer: Coast
  • Where: 2612 Lane Park Rd, Birmingham, AL 35223

4. Vulcan Park

We know when it comes to asking one of the biggest questions of your life it’s easy to get tongue-tied. Let the stunning views do the talking and opt for a totally classic design that’s beautiful without being too showy. Just like Vulcan and your relationship–the oval solitaire in yellow gold design is a staple that’ll never go out of style.

(Insider tip: Have you checked out Diamonds Direct’s Pinterest? It’s a great resource for those who are hesitant and don’t know where to start before popping the question.)

  • Shop the designer: Tacori
  • Where: 1701 Valley View Dr, Birmingham, AL 35209

5. The Roof at the Redmont Hotel

Birmingham’s oldest hotel is the ideal spot for starting a new journey in your life. Opened in 1925, the ornate decor of the historic building, mirrored by Birmingham’s fresh skyline provides a perfect backdrop for the glitzy luxe ring from Simon G.

  • Shop the designer: Simon G.
  • Where: 2101 5th Ave N, Birmingham, AL 35203
