Platinum Guild International, the worldwide marketing arm for Platinum jewelry, and, the leading engagement and wedding web site for men, have partnered together to launch a marriage proposal story contest. Men are invited to share the creative way of how they popped the question online at the marriage proposal contest page at Groom Groove. Contest entries will be featured in the Groom Groove Marriage Proposal Story Archive, with the best story entrant awarded a pair of platinum wedding bands courtesy of Novell Design Studio.

The Platinum Marriage Proposal Contest begins today and continues through November 17, 2008. Visit the marriage proposal contest page to enter.

"It's fascinating to read how a lifelong commitment begins," says Aubree Smith, Creative Director, "The prize of two platinum wedding bands mirrors that commitment with the purest and most durable wedding band metal found in nature."

"We're happy to be celebrating marriage proposals since it's one of the most exciting times in a couple's life. When you mark this moment with platinum rings you can rest assured that your ring will look the same today as it does on your 50th wedding anniversary," says Heather Zachary Rogoff, Manager of Public Relations for Platinum Guild.
