PW Reader Ring: Krista & Tim!

Krista's ring!

Krista’s ring!

The couple: Krista Ricca and Tim Maffiore, from Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring has a round diamond with a diamond halo set in white gold. My mother helped Tim with the design, as the center stone is actually her and my father’s.

The ring was originally just the center stone—the halo design was all Tim’s idea, which changed the ring completely! (I did subtly leave some pictures around the house over the years.) He had the ring made at Billig Jewelers in Marlton.

The proposal: I was completely surprised! We went out to an amazing dinner one night, and then when we got home, he dropped down on one knee in our living room. It was so intimate and endearing.

The band: I have looked at some bands, and am thinking I’ll want a thin, sparkly infinity band. I was initially thinking an extravagant band, but my ring is amazing, maybe I’ll do something more simple.
