The Ring

Katrina Lapenne's Old World RingSo, because of the spontaneity of how the engagement came about, Mike had to think fast on his feet with getting an engagement ring in a matter of days.  With the help of our friend Naz, he picked out this gem of a ring from Catbird, a unique little shop in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn that specializes in jewelry from local artists and designers.  (If the Decemberists were to open a jewelry store, this would be it.)

The ring is handmade by Katrina Lapenne, an “Old World” 14k setting with a rose-cut white diamond from India.

And talk about slick: as the whole “prank” was going down, Mike sends me an email with a picture of the ring, telling me how Shaun (the friend on whom the prank was being played) needed to think I was getting this ring.  So I respond by saying, wow, that’s a hell of a ring!  Little did I know I was actually going to get it.  But Mike succeeded in getting confirmation that his choice of engagement ring was to earn him an A+.

What started as a joke at a White Castle and a prank on a friend, ended with a box of cupcakes with an engagement ring in it. This is the story of our not-so-traditional wedding.
