Every piece has its own story: from quirky everyday pendants to extravagant engagement rings, we asked our clients to tell us about their personal journey from sketch to finish.
Laila & Jonny
How did you two meet?
We met while in college together in Atlanta, Georgia. After meeting freshmen year we were friends for over 3 years until we started dating at the end of our junior year.
Can you share your proposal story?
On our first date in college, Jonny gave me a stuffed rabbit that I cherished for years until sadly misplacing it while moving in 2017. On the day Jonny proposed, I walked in our apartment to see a replica of the same stuffed rabbit that he found, along with a beautiful storybook he created detailing the bunny’s travels around the world. At the end of the storybook, the bunny finds love and Jonny dropped to his knee to propose! He then whisked me off to a romantic room at the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg, New York, that was filled with red roses.
Can you share a fun fact about you as a couple?
We both love to cook for each other - but neither really likes to clean up!
Were you involved in the design process, or was the design a surprise for you?
They were our wedding bands, so we were involved together.
Are there any other thoughts you'd like to share?
Ordering our rings from Praktisha ended up being the most simple and least stressful to-do item on our long wedding checklist. The rings we got were exactly what we imagined and also were timely!
Notes from the Designer
I definitely shed a tear after reading this super thoughtful proposal story! I really love when brides incorporate gemstones into their wedding bands, breaking from the traditional diamond trend.
