"After months of research, we merged our three favorite designs into one." - Austin & Kristina

Design Story Forever Artisans  

How did you two meet?

We met at an event in Houston while playing bingo.


How long have you been together?

We have been together for a year and a half.


Can you share your proposal story?

I (Austin) took Kristina to the overlook of Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe. There, I got on one knee and asked her if she would do me the honor of letting me be with us until death do us part and marrying her. Luckily for me, she said yes!

Forever Artisans Ring  

How was your overall experience with Forever Artisans?

Our experience with Forever Artisans was great. Everyone we dealt with was friendly, excited for us, and took the time to explain the process to us.


Where did the inspiration for this design come from?

I wanted an Emerald cut diamond but Kristina just wanted bands, and we both wanted to incorporate black diamonds. So we began researching rings and after months, ended up merging our three favorite designs into one. The Forever Artisans designer also helped us finalize the look we wanted to achieve. 


Did we meet all of your expectations from design image to finished piece?


Designer Quote

"Black and white is a classic color combination that always looks modern. Playing with the black and white stones in the intertwining designs made these two very different rings look cohesive as a set that clearly goes together."
