Take our friends, Christina and Thomas, they were attracted by Takayas’ remarkable dolphin themed wedding collection! For their special engagement ring, we tailored the Dolphin Heart ring from our collection to reflect the beautiful bond they share with one another. Their glittering diamond center stone shining within a unique and meaningful heart-shaped setting, uplifted by two playfully divine mammals that Christina holds near and dear to herself.
We crafted a set of three rings for Hieu and Brittany! With Brittany’s cat and turtle engagement ring they also wanted a wedding band to compliment it and a similarly themed wedding band for Hieu. Ryuta and Triffany’s ring was crafted based on their love for nature and the ocean, featuring the Plumeria Ruba Flower along with an intricately sculpted manta ray.
Perhaps you would like your ring to be more subtle, capturing more of the abstract image of nature. For his ocean loving partner, who loves the cool sea breeze and its rolling waves, Bing wanted a dainty and sophisticated design. Takayas came up with a spectacular design that puts a personal twist on classic elegance, a unique ocean lover inspired engagement ring!
Maybe walk away from the beach and take a stroll in a lovely forest shaded by striking and majestic trees. Rebecca and Daniel’s woodland inspired rings shine with enchanting beauty as hand-engraved bark-like textures mark each of their white gold bands all around.
Prefer a more earthy tone? Kurt and Annette’s Golden Deer inspired ring was crafted with their surnames in mind, with the meaning they carry imbued into an eloquent custom design! To evoke the scene of a deer wandering the forest, intricate tree bark details run along their golden shank.
Craft a ring that tells your story, your heritage, and can become your legacy to be passed down. Diana’s music and flowers engagement ring seamlessly blend the hobbies she shares with her partner along with their story as a couple. Champaca flowers, tea ceremonies, and ancient Chinese instruments combine in one incredible design.
Go with a style you enjoy even if it may seem a bit unconventional! When Jose Luis contacted Takayas to create a unique wedding band for himself, he knew he wanted it to be a square style, but he had yet to settle on a design direction. Being LA locals, he and his fianceé Susan visited our studio to discuss the design a bit more, and it was decided that his square band would feature their initials in a design inspired by an Aztec stone carving. Meaningful detailed carvings wrap around their Aztec initials wedding ring.
Want something more fantastical? We’ll gladly craft a design that incorporates elements from your favorite fiction. Another friendly Diana sought us out to craft a meaningful present for her 30th birthday, one that would fit her small FFXIV-themed celebration. Her birthday ring features amethysts upon an Emet-Selch inspired design!
Our mythical Sister of the Rings project was inspired by Lord of the Rings, two magical thumb rings crafted specifically for a pair of loving sisters to celebrate their bond and the adventures they’ve shared.
