Meryl and Fedor had discussed spending their lives together, but she did not know that Fedor would propose to her that particular day. Of course, Meryl’s answer was in the affirmative.

The engagement ring!

Meryl recollected that the couple had been to Italy and Greece on a vacation in the fall of 2016. She had seen and liked a unique-looking ring in a jewelry shop on Santorini Island, Greece.

Fedor had got a replica of the same ring made. The ring has an elongated cushion-cut yellow diamond with white diamonds around.

It is set in rose gold and has little hearts in rose gold on either side of the diamond. She shared that both Fedor and she are private people and hence did not discuss much of their life in public.

The two wanted their relationship to evolve slowly to a more stable and happier position before they declare it to the world. The engagement was an important milestone in this relationship and hence Meryl opted to share it with the world.

The marriage date!

Meryl told Team USA that both Fedor and she are in no hurry for tying the knot. They have not discussed much it. It might happen sometime in the next two years or so.

They are not in favor of a lavish, big wedding and would like to keep it intimate and private with only the family and close friends around.
