How did you two meet?
We met during our junior year of college in Illinois.


How long have you been together?
About 2 ½ years.


Can you share your proposal story?
I planned a weekend getaway to Nashville, TN—the destination where we took our first trip together when we first started dating. We drove into North Carolina and hiked to an observatory called Clingmans Dome, which is over 6,000 feet high. I knew this was the moment to get down on one knee and ask the love of my life to marry me. She said yes!




How was your overall experience with Forever Artisans?
The overall design process was super easy to follow and everyone made each step of the process very understandable.


Where did the inspiration for this design come from?
The inspiration for the ring came from photos my now-fiancée showed me in the past. I took multiple concepts and combined them into one.

Design Story

How did you hear about Forever Artisans?
I found Diamond Nexus [Forever Artisan’s sister website] originally by searching online. I learned about Nexus Diamond alternatives and instantly became interested.


 

Did we meet all of your expectations from design image to finished piece?
The design image to the final product exceeded my expectations and I would honestly do it all over again just to get the excitement out of it once more.


 
 

Designer Quote:
"I love the look of the larger center stone in a classic piece like this. It accentuates the dainty and feminine band while staying true to the original design, which was based on the Naples ring from Diamond Nexus."
