Henrik and I went to look at the wax-ups of our rings last Friday. How exciting! We’re commissioning an old friend of mine, Kurt Kogita, make our rings.

While we were vacationing in Zihautanejo in December I found a ring that I had to have. It was fabulously original and made by a local family that have been designing jewelry for years. We bought the ring, which was made of sterling silver and gold, and gave it to Kurt to replicate in white and yellow gold. He’ll transplant the stones from the Mexico ring into the new one.

Henrik sketched out his design for me while we were relaxing at a wonderful little coffee shop in Zihautanejo. His sketch was of a three-layer ring in white and yellow gold with stones matching mine.

WOW! I loved his idea. He’s not only a sexy hottie, he’s brilliant, too.

Anyway, Kurt is working his magic and we should have our rings in a few weeks. Original. Creative. Artistic. Beautiful. Fun. Just like us! (ha ha)

You can find Kurt Kogita’s contact information in our Wedding Thank You To … section.

Our little boat is sturdy but needs a bit of work to be made gorgeous so we made a Sailboat Wish List in order of priority.
