Arthur applied for the online contest and won, after writing this about why he and his girlfriend deserved this life-changing experience:

She deserves to win this contest because it will help me show her how proud I am of everything she overcame to make it to our first date and that our future together will certainly have struggles, but it will have blessings too.
A few days after learning of his selection, he met Alex and Michael of The Diamond Family at their Ballwin location, to pick out a ring for the girl of his dreams. They walked him through the whole process, just like they’ll do for you, and he found the perfect rock for Anette.
