After spending 16 years together, my girlfriend and I will finally be wed this October!

I spent an entire year researching until I was ready to commit to having our engagement rings made for us. I had diamonds that have been in my family for 3 generations, and wanted custom settings made for them. I consulted with NINE different jewelers, both online and in person, before choosing to work with Caysie of CVB Inspired Designs after she was recommended to me on PriceScope (thank you to everyone on the forum who helped me along the way!).

My rings are nowhere near the most expensive or fanciest jewelry that Caysie has worked on, but she made me feel like my project was her top priority. We exchanged literally hundreds of messages working out every little detail, answering all my questions, and making sure my rings would be perfect. She responded to every message quickly, even if it was just to let me know that she was busy and could answer later. Despite how popular she's getting, her prices were still very reasonable compared with other artists I spoke with. I can unreservedly recommend Caysie. Working with her was a complete joy. And I could not be happier with the end results!

My ring (with the square, ‘fishtail’ setting) is platinum with a .56ct rb center diamond, size 5.5.
My partner’s ring is 14k white gold with a 1.01 round ‘early modern cut’ center diamond, size 7.

Gorgeous! Congratulations, hope these get Jewel of the Week. Same sex proposals are the best - twice as blingy!

I love the marquise accents.

Bah!!

I was afraid you'd left us. And I've been wanting to see your ring so badly. I didn't know we would get a twofer

I am in love with both of these. They match without being identical. They are delicate and the kind of proportions I love to see in vintage style rings.

Yours seems decidedly vintage - hers seems like a modern ring with vintage elements. I think both are great.

Pretty rings! I like how they sort of match! The one with the fishtail heads is one of my all time favorite designs.

Congrats!

I love vintage styles of which yours are gorgeous examples. These beautiful rings seem rather a lovely way to celebrate 16 years already passed together as well as the committing to each other for the future. Congratulations.
