 2.    What is your favorite ring?
My Favorite ring is the one Haig Tacorian and I designed for my wife before we were married almost two years ago.  It is from our Classic Crescent Collection, but with some additional touches like the Double Bloom on the crown and amazing windows of light on the inner face of the ring to guarantee amazing sparkle from the center stone.

3.    Are you married?  I IS...

4.    If so, how did you propose? 
We were on a train from Los Angeles up to wine country and we have a private car when I pulled out an old journal.  I use to write short stories about our first maybe 20 dates...we started reading the stories and reminiscing of the days when we first met.  After reading all the stories, I told her I wanted to write a new one about the trip we were on, so she could read it back to the end of the story I asked her to marry me.  She of course was totally surprised and said yes.  

5.    Where did you get married?  
We went on a trip, just to two of us to the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  We were married in a little town called Ravello up on top of the mountain...
