Modern Day Heirloom

As some of you may know, my guy took a knee and popped the age old question. I went blank, so I couldn't tell you what he said, or what I said aside from "is this real?". He proposed with a silver bracelet and I couldn't decide if it was a horrible joke or devilishly brilliant.  I'm happy to say, it was the latter.

We soon got to work collaborating on all elements of the design and ultimately decided that we wanted a solitaire setting, something classic with a modern edge. After a couple grueling weeks of designs transcribed from bar napkins, diamond hunting, and a couple all-nighters, my heirloom-esque engagement ring was completed!


We opted for a vintage cut Old European diamond in a six prong setting on 18k yellow gold mounting.
