Final Fantasy VII Emerald Sephiroth Engagement Ring

We loved creating this custom Sephiroth inspired engagement ring for Andrew and Kristie. It's hard to believe that Final Fantasy VII was released 19 years ago!

Andrew's idea for the ring design was to use an emerald center stone with Sephiroth's wing on one side and his Masamune on the other side.

Rather than use a traditional prong setting, Takayas used the sword's guard to form one side of the emerald's setting in order to highlight the traditional Japanese-style grip.

The other side of the setting was a little more challenging because of both the unique angle of the wing and all of the individual feathers Takayas used to  secure the center stone.

Emeralds can be a notoriously difficult stone to set, but thankfully, everything went smoothly without a hitch!

He casted the whole ring in platinum, and as a last step, he plated the wing section with black rhodium to give it its rich slate color.
