In early March of 2020 I made a visit to Jewels by Tashne on a recommendation by a friend with the hopes of working with Kirk to design a ring for my soon to be fiance. After a wonderful first meeting with Kirk, I was emboldened that this process was going to be fun and unique! Little did I know that the world would go into a state of lock down and with it my hopes of proposing to my wonderful girlfriend. In early April, as a last hope of keeping my plan alive to propose to my girlfriend in June, I sent an email to Kirk to see if anything could be done. I received an immediate email and then soon after a phone call and our design process began! Kirk was very helpful and knowledgeable in the design process and had an answer for every question I had. He and I designed this unique ring all over the phone remotely! Kirk made sure to check in at least once a week to make sure I knew where we were at in the process and to answer any more questions I had. Kirk offered suggestions to the design only when I asked for his opinion and if I did not ask, he just helped to create my vision. In the end a beautiful, unique, engagement ring was created just in time to propose to my now fiance in June! I am not sure that any of this would have been possible without working with Jewels by Tashne and Kirk himself. I will always recommend Kirk and Jewels by Tashne to anyone looking for custom or premade jewelry!
