Fail Jewelry has had the honor of designing and making custom rings for beautiful people and occasions, it's our privilege to be sharing their stories. Meet our friends, Lisa and David.
After 4 or 5 years of dating, Lisa decided to create a Pinterest board for wedding and engagement ring inspiration, “just for fun, just for myself”, she exclaimed blushing. Little did she know, this board was going to give her sister all the information she needed to play the perfect middle man for David who was already beginning to plan his proposal.
Jackie and her husband, close mutual friends of Lisa and Christine’s, had recently had their wedding rings designed by Fail - David knew how much Lisa adored the work and that he wouldn’t go to anyone else to design theirs. Taking the bit of inspiration he had from the leaked photos on Lisa’s Pinterest board, along with an old, family ring he wanted to somehow include in the design, he came to Christine to work her magic.
Hardly able to tell us every detail behind their laughter, the couple recalls the silly and special moment at Fonda San Miguel when David popped the question. It was just before Christmas, December 21st, so the restaurant was particularly busy and they were casually talking about what they were going to order. “David paused mid conversation, just looking at me”, Lisa, still laughing in her seat, tells us. “It was a total surprise!”
“It’s hard to say my favorite thing about my ring, everything about it makes it, as a whole, incredible”, Lisa goes on as she slides the ring left and right against her finger. “The mixed metals make it so me, and there’s a sort of art-deco style to it that I love.” David looks at Lisa, “that is MY favorite part of the ring! I think I helped with that part.” The two continue to giggle over what seems to be the recollection of such a wonderful time - an energy that radiates from their smiles and makes us all the more grateful to have been a part of it.
Thank you, Lisa and David!
