<p>A woman had to have her £2,000 engagement ring cut off by firefighters after it got stuck and made her finger turn purple and numb the day after her fiancé proposed. </p><p>Periesa Oromé, 30, panicked when she couldn’t slip the ring off the morning after her partner, Willis Oromé, 28, a knowledge management specialist, popped the question during a romantic proposal. </p><p>The wedding and event designer spent an hour trying to remove the ring - with soap, ice and a thread hack she found on YouTube - but nothing worked. </p><p>After her fingers started swelling and turning purple, the couple rushed to their local fire station for help. </p><p>The firefighters had to carefully cut the ring off with emergency ring cutter plyers, to free it from Periesa’s finger. </p><p>Luckily the ring was able to be resized at no extra cost and the couple got married in October 2019- with their big day going without a hitch. </p><p>Periesa, of Beckenham, south east London, said: “I woke up in the morning and I just couldn’t pull the ring off. </p><p>“It got worse and worse as I tried to yank it off. </p><p>“But it didn’t take long for the whole thing to become funny - and the firefighters were laughing too. </p><p>“Willis had tried to measure my ring size from an old ring against his pinky finger as he wanted the proposal to be a surprise. </p><p>“But it didn’t quite go to plan.” </p><p>Willis said: “I was convinced I got the right size. </p><p>“I just found it funny when it got stuck. </p><p>“It was a little worrying when her finger turned purple but thankfully it was all OK.” </p><p>Periesa and Willis met as friends at church, but both secretly liked each other for a year, before Willis finally took the plunge and sent her flowers. </p><p>“I didn’t know he liked me too until I got them,” Periesa said. </p><p>“It was very quick from there as we’d been mates for a while.” </p><p>Willis decided to pop the question on their one-year anniversary of dating, taking Periesa to a restaurant she had wanted to go to. </p><p>“We had a lovely dinner and then a tour of the restaurant after,” she said. </p><p>“The waitress asked if we wanted a photo and suddenly Willis got down on one knee and there were sparklers going off. </p><p>“It was so special.” </p><p>Willis had picked out a specially designed emerald cut ring - which Periesa had mentioned she loved back when they were just friends. </p><p>“I couldn’t believe he remembered,” she said. </p><p>“When Willis put it on it did feel a bit snug, but I just thought it was because I wasn’t used to wearing something on that finger.” </p><p>Periesa was able to slip the ring on and off that evening but found it was stuck when she woke up the next day. </p><p>“I was pulling and pulling it, but my finger just got more swollen,” she said. </p><p>“I tried cooling it with ice and using thread to try and ease it off, but it wouldn’t budge.” </p><p>After calling the local jewellers the couple were advised to go to the Fire Brigade who would have the tools to cut it off. </p><p>“I had to phone to say I would be late to work as my ring was stuck which was a funny way of my colleagues finding out I was engaged,” Periesa said. </p><p>“We knocked on the door of the Fire Brigade to help us. </p><p>“They were hanging around waiting to be called out, so they didn’t hesitate to help me. </p><p>“There were about three or four of them around me using a cutter to get make a clean slice to get it off. </p><p>“I was just laughing at this point.” </p><p>The firefighters were able to free Periesa’s finger and the ring was taken back to the jewellers to be resized for free. </p><p>“It fits perfectly now,” Periesa said. </p><p>Despite superstitious comments indicating the incident means they shouldn’t get married, the couple wed in October 2019 in an intimate ceremony. </p><p>“It was an incredible day, and nothing went wrong,” Periesa added.</p>
