Our engagement began in New York, as a double surprise for me. First, the proposal, then the revelation from Ben, that a few weeks earlier while in Sicily, our original engagement ring had been stolen! After stressing out about whether or not he could propose without a ring, Ben found a place holder, and we decided to design a new one together back at home. From here we enlisted the help of Zoe , to create us an unconventional, lovely ring! I knew I wanted a three-stone setting like my mother’s engagement ring, some diamonds and colourful stones to accompany it. Zoe was really into the mismatched look and knew the best stones and metals to use. The whole process was a fun collaboration from start to finish and we love what she made for us.
