Emerald & Dylan
How We Met
Emerald and Dylan met almost 8 years ago outside of a coffee shop/bar they both frequented in Athens, GA. Numbers were exchanged, but a date never happened.
Emerald moved to New York and Dylan moved to Charleston. They lost touch.
Five years later, at the height of the pandemic, they reconnected ….over Facebook (they love to keep things old school.) Facebook messages turned to emails turned to hours long FaceTimes, and finally, on July 4th, 2020, they met in person. They never parted.
About The Ring
Two years later, Dylan and Emerald started working with Olivia and Sue on repurposing Emerald’s grandmother’s engagement ring. The setting they found was unlike anything Emerald had seen, it was the perfect reimagining of her beloved grandmother’s vintage brilliant diamond. (Fun fact: Emerald’s grandmother worked at a jewelry store at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas). Emerald knows she would’ve loved Olivia’s design.
Not long after, on a sweaty summer day on Diamond Street in Greenpoint, Dylan proposed to Emerald and they celebrated with strangers at a bar, ate pizza and called their family and friends. It’s going to be a long engagement.
