The Carrie K. Love Letter Series encapsulates beautiful love stories that we have encountered along the way to share with you. Today, in the second part of the series, we are recounting the love story between Marilyn and Shaun that inspired the Princess engagement ring.
Marilyn and Shaun crossed paths in 2011 when they first started out as colleagues in a design firm and shared the same desk. When asked how they met, the couple fondly recalled the exact moment they saw one another in the office, with Shaun making quite the impression with his long hair and slippers.
As their relationship blossomed over years, the word ‘Princess’ became an inside joke between the couple and a term of endearment for Marilyn.
Check out this little snippet of the interview we did with the couple!
Wanting to incorporate elements of their love story and Marilyn’s love for geometric shapes, the Princess Ring was created. The bespoke engagement ring features a yellow gold band and an emerald stone nestled in an intricate princess carriage. A ring fit for royalty, it aptly reflects her inner grandeur and the inside joke on which their romance was built upon.
With a combination of a cathedral and a bezel setting, this beautiful combination gives the stone full protection (emeralds are soft stones!). The cathedral setting shows off the intricate detailing of the carriage while the bezel setting encircles the emerald, protecting the stone.
The couple tied the knot in 2019 in a dreamy wedding venue at Bali. With a love story that is this adorable, one can only smile for decades to come.
From the bottom of our hearts, the Carrie K. family wishes Marilyn and Shaun a lifetime of love and happiness.

1. Measure your fingers at the end of day as your finger size will be different at different times of the day.
Fingers tend swell up during the course of the day as your blood pressure rises.
2. Measure your finger size 3 to 4 times to get a more accurate measure.
3. Your fingers might also swell if you are pregnant or if you are on medication. Take this into account when measuring your fingers.
Here are some tips on how you can measure your finger:
First, cut a cardboard strip measuring 0.5cm wide and 15cm long.
Then, wrap the cardboard around the finger to be sized.
Once it’s done, slide the cardboard up to the knuckle, as the ring must be sized large enough to able to slip off and on, over the knuckle.
Next, use a pen to mark on the cardboard where the long end overlaps.
Measure the mark from the end of the length of paper or string with a ruler.
Locate your ring size by locating your measurement against our size chart.
Should the measurement falls in between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.
