Marcus and Christine are both avid Legend of Zelda players. The long-running series has been a part of their lives since each of them were children – and after nearly twelve years together, Marcus wanted to celebrate their upcoming marriage with a custom engagement ring that reflected the mythology and lore of the world they hold so close to their hearts. Crafted in platinum with a dazzling center diamond and emerald, ruby, and sapphire accent stones, this stunning custom engagement ring represents just how committed Marcus is to their relationship!
“I want this ring to symbolize our past love and continued love going forward,” Marcus explained to us, when he first approached us to create his wonderful project. “I want her to know that I support and love her always, no matter what happens in the future.” Never one to back down from a challenge, Takayas set to work on crafting an incredible Legend of Zelda themed engagement ring he was sure Christine would cherish forever.
In the center of Marcus’s engagement ring, a magnificent trillion-cut diamond represents the sacred Triforce that rules over the land of Hyrule. The uniquely shaped split-shank band arcs to frame the Triforce on top, while gently curving inward on the bottom to cradle the three Spiritual Stones from Ocarina of Time: the Kokiri’s Emerald, Goron’s Ruby, and Zora’s Sapphire.
A twirling design around the back of the band holds a series of smooth, embedded spheres. Three of the eight spheres bear the Marks of the Goddesses that emblazon the Goddess Pearls of The Wind Waker, representing the power, wisdom, and courage that Marcus and Christine bring to the beautiful relationship they share together. Rather than keep the additional spheres empty, Takayas chose to enhance the visual appeal of Marcus’s ring even further by etching in the game’s distinctive cel-shaded clouds!
For a final decorative touch that ties the two entries in the Legend of Zelda series together, the iconic ocean waves of The Wind Waker sweep along the band above the Triforce and below the Zora’s Sapphire. The resulting effect is irresistibly gorgeous – a one-of-a-kind, heartfelt statement on just how special this amazing couple is.
When the time came for the big reveal, Christine was totally blown away! “She has loved every detail of the ring,” Marcus told us after their engagement party, “and I am glad Takayas was able to make my design a reality. Thank you again!”
Thank you, Marcus, for inviting us to craft such an extraordinary engagement ring that commemorates the love story between you and Christine. Here’s to a lifetime of joy and adventure – and as the Legend of Zelda series continues, we hope you two will be playing together every step of the way!
