We thoroughly enjoyed designing this Zelda inspired wedding set for Keanan and Kristina based on the Hylian Shield and Master Sword.
Often times people will design an engagement ring first and create the wedding band after they have proposed. However, Keanan went with a non-traditional direction commissioning both rings together so that Takayas could design the shield and sword to be worn separately as well as interlock!
Kristina’s finished 14K white gold Hylian Shield engagement ring features an accent ruby, emerald, and sapphire on either side of the shield centerpiece. To add definition and pop of color, Takayas plated the Wingcrest accents with 14K yellow gold.
For Kristina’s wedding ring, Takayas used a diamond-shaped band to hold the Master Sword so that the sword tip wouldn’t poke her finger. By splitting the band into a more diamond shape, it also served to protect the sword design from becoming bent against the shield with repeated wear. The back of the engagement ring’s shield actually has a groove for the sword to fit into!
We couldn’t be more ecstatic after Keanan proposed and they shared their engagement photo with us! Congratulations again to the happy couple.
