Sailor Saturn Engagement Ring and Lightsaber Wedding Bands
We loved creating this custom 14K yellow gold engagement ring for Justin based on his fiancee Joni's childhood heroine, Sailor Saturn.
We had previously created a Sailor Moon and Chibi Moon ring, so were excited when Justin contacted us from Singapore with a request for a custom Sailor Saturn ring based on her tiara.
They wanted to use a moonstone center stone because its color would match Hotaru's tiara gem (each Sailor Scout has a different colored stone associated with their tiara).
Takayas played around with adding purple accent stones, but he ultimately decided they would have distracted from the elegant, understated look of the tiara design.
Rather than use a solid band of metal, Takayas designed the ring with a split shank style to maintain the proportions of Sailor Saturn's tiara without all of the bulky metal. This helped to reduce the heaviness of the band significantly so that the ring would have a more slim, elegant look.
He merged the split shank in the back of the band so that it would feel comfortable to wear.
Lastly, for their wedding bands, they commissioned a pair of matching Dark Side lightsaber wedding rings from our Star Wars inspired collection.
We couldn't ask for a friendlier couple to work with. Throughout the process they were thoughtful and communicative, and they were able to perfectly explain Joni's design preferences through email.
