If a dream is a wish your heart makes, them I’m going to be dreaming about having a ring like this Tangled-inspired amethyst sunburst engagement ring by Takayas Custom Jewelry.

Lawrence and Janina love Disney films, so Lawrence asked Takayas to make a Rapunzel-inspired ring because Janina also loves the color purple (Rapunzel’s dress the Royal Flag of Corona are purple in Tangled).

The amethyst centerpiece is set in the Sun Crest symbol while the pattern on the band is reminiscent of the pattern on lanterns in the movie. Plus, “My New Dream” is engraved on the inside of the band.

The best part of this whole story is how Lawrence proposed. Both he and Janina practice martial arts, so he proposed right after she passed her black belt test. The video is available below, and it’s heart-meltingly sweet. [click to continue…]


I always enjoy showing off one of Takayas’ custom rings because they’re so gorgeous and cleverly designed. That’s definitely the case with this custom Hylian Shield and Master Sword wedding ring set Takayas made for Keanan when he decided to propose to his girlfriend Kristina.

The Hylian Shield engagement ring is 14K white gold and features an accent ruby, emerald, and sapphire on either side of the shield centerpiece. Takayas also added 14K yellow gold to the Wingcrest accents.

The Master Sword’s diamond shape was made with beauty and safety in mind. By splitting the band, Takayas made sure the sword tip wouldn’t poke her finger or end up bent against the shield with repeated wear. On top of that, the back of the shield has a groove for the sword to fit into.

Indeed, the way the Hylian Shield engagement ring interlocks with the Master Sword wedding ring is particularly cool with this set. You can check out the rings individually below.

Takayas Custom Jewelry looked to J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy realm for a little inspiration when they created this incredible wedding ring set for LOTR fans Wesley and Sarah.

For Wesley’s ring, Takayas looked to The Key to Erebor for design inspiration while Sarah’s rings incorporated elements from the Leaves of Lorien and Arwen’s Evenstar necklace (they’re also designed to fit seamlessly together).

A guy named Adam has a girlfriend named Anna that loves Sailor Moon, so when he approached Takayas about a custom engagement ring, he knew he wanted the crescent moon symbol to be the basis for the design—along with some wing imagery if possible. He also wanted the design to be subtle and elegant.

Once again, Takayas delivered with a gorgeous 14k rose gold diamond ring.

Take a closer look at the design below.

Takayas Custom Jewelry is back with another beautiful ring design and a delightful story to go along with it.

Both John and Erin are huge Legend of Zelda fans. So, when it came time to propose, John commissioned this subtle (but beautiful) Zelda-inspired design that features a delicate band with a large white topaz center stone framed by three triangle moissanites set in a triforce pattern.

However, the proposal is the best part. It took John a year of planning, but the Zelda-themed scavenger hunt complete with handmade props and costumes made it the adventure of a lifetime.
