Celebrating 34 years with new rings

Posted: 7am 14 Feb 2021

Paul and Kim McGrath are celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary today with new wedding bands, thanks to Jade Jewellers at Burpengary Plaza.

The Narangba couple had their bands remade after the originals were stolen during a break-in at their home.

Jade Jewellers owner Gary Coates created a custom design with input from Paul and Kim before the rings were made on site by Master Jeweller Michael Mortensen.

Rings remade

“We decided to get the wedding rings remade and to have my engagement ring repaired at the same time,” Kim says.

“Paul has always been a romantic and during a four-course meal more than 34 years ago, I was surprised with a gift at each course.

“When it was time for dessert my engagement ring was waiting for me.”

Proposed again

This time, on Christmas Day last year, Paul got down on one knee on Christmas Day just gone, in front of family, and re-proposed to Kim with the new wedding set.

“We both agree that it’s the small things in life that we love and when we look back at our wedding day we just remember it as a loving memory,” Kim said.

“We both have a lot of priceless moments.”

Love story

Renee Perry, sales assistant at Jade Jewellers, said it was a pleasure to be part of the custom design for Paul and Kim and said hearing their story was a special part of her job.

“It truely is something special when we get to be part of a love story,” Renee said.

“Listening to their stories and seeing their faces light up, transforms a piece of metal into a memory that will last forever.”

Team work

Paul and Kim McGrath say the secret to a loving relationship is talking, tolerance, kindness and working as a team.

“Because at the end of the day you never know how long you’re going to get with your loved one,” Paul said.
