PW Reader Ring: Anna & Ken!

Anna's ring!

Anna’s ring!

The couple: Anna Silvestera and Ken DiGiambattista, Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is white gold, and has a center diamond surrounded by a double halo. Ken picked it out all by himself; he described one of my favorite rings that I wear all of the time (a vintage marcasite and diamond ring) to the jeweler to give them a starting point. And although he didn’t have a custom design, we were told there was no other ring like this one anywhere.

The proposal: On New Year’s day, Ken and I spent the day in our pajamas watching the Mummers. Around 9pm, he got really quiet and came up to me and got down on one knee and smiled. I knew it was coming.

Despite the simplicity, the proposal was so “us,” as we are a no-fuss kind of couple. I was completely caught off guard—had no idea it was coming!—and thought it was so romantic to get engaged on the first day of the new year. I immediately called my parents, best friends, and niece.

The band: I searched high and low for a complimentary band, and found one! It’s a double diamond band with a twist.
