At Forever Artisans, we feature real life stories to inspire your custom design. This is the true story of how Elisha and Crystal designed their dream engagement ring.
WHERE DID YOUR STORY BEGIN?
I actually met Crystal junior year of high school. We dated long-distance through college until we both go jobs in San Antonio.
TELL US YOUR PROPOSAL STORY!
I wanted it to be a complete surprise when it happened. So I picked the last day of the school year for Crystal since she is an elementary teacher. I planned a photoshoot with some of our close friends that Friday evening. It was the perfect cover. For the photoshoot, I planted a small sign face down on a swing that read "Will you marry me?" on it. As we approached the spot where I would do the proposal I mentioned seeing the sign and told Crystal she should see what it says. When she walked over to it is when I got down on one knee. I also had dinner planned for afterward, and I coordinated with her family to meet us for an escape room, one of our favorite activities, to close out the evening.
WHAT INSPIRED THE DESIGN?
Crystal and I had gone to look at a variety of rings to see what she would like. From that, I knew she'd want something that had a halo design and a slight twist around the center stone. Plus, she wanted to be able to see it sparkle when she did things like driving. Which is pretty funny but accurate for her.
DID WE MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
From the very beginning, the staff at Forever Artisans was extremely helpful and understanding throughout the process.
Outstanding! Both the customer service and the quality of the ring are amazing!
