SIMON + KATIE
It was Sunday morning and I had just arrived home from yoga. We went to walk with our dog Bodhi on the seaside path in front on our home. Simon insisted we stopped to take a picture with the still sea and white snow as the backdrop. He dropped to a knee, opened Bodhi's dog backpack, and pulled out a custom ring he co-designed with Christen. Champagne was hidden in the snow, behind a tree.

The Ring: 14k matte yellow gold with a bezel set round brilliant cut diamond. The organic shapes on the side are set with .1ct weight of round brilliant micro pave diamonds. The inside of the ring is laser engraved with design stamp and custom arrow.

RYAN + KATIE
This beautiful marquise is an heirloom stone in Ryan's family. I took the stone out of his mother's setting and we designed around it. We had a good idea of what Katie wanted and we were able to use this special family stone to design the ring of her dreams.
ALEX + BECCA
This piece of turquoise was mined by a friend of mine and Alex and I were drooling over it. Alex and Becca are both super active so we wanted something low profile, functional and overall really unique. This shows the custom shaped turquoise and diamond pointed wedding band.
HARVEY + AMANDA
The best is yet to come...
COREY + LIZ
Late Saturday night, I walked into a room flooded with candlelight and the familiar sound of our song murmuring in the background. He held both of my hands on his heart and told me I was his best friend, that he loved me and he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He knelt to one knee and asked me to marry him.
We kissed, hugged our dog and slow danced as I happily sobbed in his arms.
The next day, we ate donuts, drank champagne and went to the movies.
JOHN + NATALIE
John: Natalie and I have spent the last 12 months of our relationship apart with her living in Boston, where we met, and I in school at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. Between the demands of the Marine Corps and 500 miles separating us we managed to see each other for at least a weekend a month since September of 2014.
At some point during the first and most difficult stretch of my time in Quantico, where we would often go several days to a full week with zero communication, I told Natalie I would surprise her by showing up in Boston unannounced. By the time graduation rolled around 6 months later and I hadn't shown up on her doorstep, with relief (but also an air of disappointment) Natalie thought she was in the clear.
Natalie: It was a Friday evening in August and I had just gotten back from a beach day on Cape Cod. I walked into the house to my favorite Van Morrison song playing & saw champagne on the table at the top of the stairs. While still processing what was going on, John then walked back from behind the wall in the living room.
In a complete state of surprise and excitement, we hugged each other and a few moments later, he got down on one knee.
JONNY + ELLIE
There wasn't a ring involved when we first got engaged on a cloudy Friday in January. We are averse to some of the stale traditions that tend to surround engagements. After finishing a surprise treasure hunt, collecting clues by traipsing up hills, around ponds, and through forests, Ellie met Jonny at the end of a picturesque beach in the San Juan Islands. There, we agreed to spend our lives together with a champagne toast.
As we moved forward with wedding plans, we decided we wanted to see if there was a ring out there that could be unique enough to symbolize our bond. The initial results were not successful. It seemed no matter how much we looked, all the options were uninspired.
We were so lucky to be referred to Christen. She immediately understood our aesthetic and pointed us to an insane collection of rare and jaw-dropping stones. Starting with a stunning sapphire with a unique cut, a design reminiscent of Art Deco architecture organically evolved. After a few iterations back and forth, all parties decided upon the baguette diamond accents and sunburst design detail to complete the piece.
The end result is a ridiculously gorgeous piece that we can’t stop looking at. We are thrilled that the process of designing it perfectly embodied what makes our partnership what it is: approaching our joint decisions with consideration and intention. Christen was the perfect partner in making this happen. She provided us options to make the ring unique and knew when to lean on her experience and push us in the right direction. It couldn't be more perfect for us.
