This week, we're very excited to share this League of Legends inspired custom commission.

The platinum ring's primary design was based on Heartseeker Ashe, but per our customer's request, we also subtly worked Poro horns into the sapphire's setting.

The shank is built from the Heartseeker character skin's bow and arrow.

For the setting, Takayas formed the prongs holding the sapphire using the Poro horns. He didn't want to interpret the horn shape too literally because it would have looked very blocky and heavy, so he rounded out the horns to match the organic rounded heart shapes in the band.

Setting the sapphire itself was a very delicate process because if Takayas had hammered the prongs too hard, the horns would have been flattened out and lost their shape. Thankfully, the setting went smoothly without a hitch!
