Though it could be said that the Kingdom Hearts series is primarily a PlayStation property, there have technically been more releases on Nintendo handhelds, if you don't count the re-releases and remixes. All the same, there's lots of lore behind the games, and many gamers no doubt have fond memories of experiencing them for the first time. It seems that one gamer in particular has taken it another step further, opting to reference the passion that he and his girlfriend share for Kingdom Hearts with his engagement proposal.
The engagement ring is custom made and is based around the Oathkeeper Keyblade, an elegant variant that symbolizes the bond between Sora and Kairi. The ring was made by Takayas Custom Jewelry – a project run by Takayas Mizuno, a Japanese master florist and jeweler - and here's what his blog had to say about the process of designing the ring:
"The Oathkeeper's hilt frames the center stone on each side, and the blade forms the rest of the band. Takayas designed the ring's band in 14K white gold, and he used 14K yellow gold accents to create contrast and draw attention to the iconic feathered guard. It was a little challenging to fit so many details into such a small surface area, so he used the hilt in the front of the band and the head of the blade in the back of the band."
The design was requested by a man named 'Cory', and for those of you who are wondering, she did say yes!
