Your Happily Ever After

One of our favorite parts about creating engagement rings is receiving client photos and reading their love stories. Behind each Zen Moissanite ring is a beautiful & unique love story that we are so grateful to be a part of. Celebrating milestones with our clients is such an honor, and is a significant source of motivation in the work that we do. We pride ourselves for working closely with our clients to provide a collaborative and stress-free experience and for bringing their vision to life (and their dream ring to their finger)! We hope you enjoy these stories and testimonials as much as we did!

Our Love Story

Shortly after moving to California, I went to Disneyland with some new friends. At the end of a long day, I was on my way back to my car, and decided I wanted to take the tram instead of walking through Downtown Disney. I decided to get in line behind two guys and two kids, as it was the shortest line. My phone was dead, so I was standing there awkwardly, when the cute guy in front of me turned around and asked me how my day was with a huge smile on his face. We had what Nick calls our "15 minute speed-date" on the tram ride back to our cars, and he asked for my number.

We met up a week later, and we had our five hour first date at sunrise in Huntington Beach. We walked along the Bolsa Chica Reserve and got breakfast then walked along the beach. We both knew from that first date that we were in love (but didn’t tell each other right away).

Our relationship has been filled with lots of traveling, lots of moving, some long distance, living in an airstream for two years, getting a bunny and a puppy, lots of dreaming about our future but mostly lots of love. We’re so excited to start this next chapter of our lives.

The Proposal

This past year, I decided I wanted to spend time with my family in Rhode Island for Thanksgiving for the first time since 2016. Little did I know, Nick was up to something. He wouldn’t explicitly tell me if he was coming home for thanksgiving with me because he had to work, but he didn’t necessarily say no. My sister invited me to go ice skating by the Newport Bridge on Tuesday, November 23rd, and along came my mom and my sister’s husband as well. While making my way down to the ice rink, my sister wanted to snap a few pictures at the lighthouse overlooking the bridge before getting on the ice. While I walked down to the water, there was Nick, coming out from behind the lighthouse with a bouquet of flowers and said he had something very important to ask me, and got down on one knee. He asked me to marry him, and I clearly said YES! 

He proposed with my dream ring. I had shown him a hundred photos of the Harley ring from Zen Moissanite and even sent him the exact details I wanted (brilliant cut, carat size, etc.) I joke and say this is the first time he’s ever listened intently to me because he hit it spot on! He loved working with Zen to create my dream ring so much, that we went with the Sophia band to be my wedding band as well so we could have a full set from Zen. I get so many compliments on my ring every day, even a year later.

We got married on 12/2/22 back on the east coast despite still living in California. We chose December because it was the time of year we met, and Nick loves the east coast in the winter.

How did you decide on a Zen Moissanite piece?

I found Zen on Instagram and fell in love with each piece but the Harley ring just stuck out to me and I decided I wanted that one right away! It’s such a timeless solitaire design with a little bit of flare with the hidden halo. I love it so much.
