This week, to conclude our Zora ring feature, we're very excited to share this custom "Song of Healing" inspired Legend of Zelda engagement ring.

For musicians Wesley and Celia, a "Song of Healing" themed Zora ring was the perfect way to combine their love of gaming and music.

In place of a center stone, they wanted to use the Spiritual Stone of Water from The Ocarina of Time. The Zora's Sapphire centerpiece is formed out of three .25 ct sapphires.

The platinum "Song of Healing" band features the opening music notes from the "Song of Healing" which Link plays throughout Majora's Mask to help others and put their spirits' to rest.

Takayas's main concern while designing the ring was fitting all five bars of music onto the band without it getting too wide and bulky. Wesley had specified that Celia liked very elegant, elvish-type jewelry, so we needed to avoid a thick, bulky ring.

Takayas's solution was to use a knife edge band for the ring's design. The angled slope of a knife edge style would leave enough space for him to emboss the music notes in a more 3-D style than a typical, flat engraving. At the same time, it would allow for a more narrow, tapered ring that would reflect Celia's style preferences.

We always love a good challenge, but Link definitely had a much easier time of playing left-right-down left-right-down on the ocarina than we had embossing sheet music onto a 2 - 3 mm area!

Of course, it was totally worth it in the end, and we were able to finish the ring just in time for Wesley's New Years proposal.

Celia said yes, and they were kind enough to let us know that all of their friends and family loved the ring as well. Warmest wishes to them both on their upcoming wedding!
