At Forever Artisans, we feature real life stories to inspire your custom design. This is the true story of how Evan and Kristina designed their dream engagement ring.
WHERE DID YOUR STORY BEGIN?
We met while working together on a project at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. We found we worked well together and quickly realized we shared many things in common. Our working relationship evolved into a wonderful friendship.
Six months after one of us moved halfway across the country, we realized our feelings had grown into something deeper. We are so blessed to have our love based upon a strong friendship and mutual respect and understanding of each other.
TELL US YOUR PROPOSAL STORY!
It was a typical Friday night date night, and we were looking forward to relaxing after a busy week. We went to our favorite Indian restaurant, and I noticed that Evan was acting a bit strange, so I was slightly suspicious that something was up. After dinner, he suggested that we go to the Plaza, where we stopped at the J.C. Nichols Fountain. We walked a bit and then he got down on one knee, held my hand, and asked me to marry him.
He pulled out the ring box and of course I said, "YES I will marry you!"
When I looked down at the ring as he placed it on my finger, I knew immediately that he had designed a very special ring just for me. Celtic knots with intertwining dragons.
WHAT INSPIRED THE DESIGN?
We are both big geeks at heart and we knew this one-of-a-kind item would be special to us. Influences include popular fantasy drama series and games.
DID IT MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
Yes, we are happy with the three rings overall. We feel like it was a great value for our money and we also like that they were made in the USA.
“We really liked being able to design a ring that is special to us and is one-of-a-kind.”
