More Than Just a Ring, a Timeless Family Heirloom

The most sentimental, romantically vintage wedding inspiration often comes from our own families. You've been dreaming of your own engagement and wedding for years, and like us, you admire the love stories of generations past. The details that inspired your early years of wedding dreams were perhaps photos of your grandmother in a timelessly chic going-away outfit, your mother's breathtaking bridal ensemble, and of course, jewelry that these inspiring women have worn for decades. Truly iconic engagement rings aren't just exciting for the newly engaged couples — they are adored and cherished by all of those touched by their love story for generations. 

Choosing a Kirk Kara engagement ring is falling head-over-heels a unique work of art hand-crafted by artisans and inspired by our family's fascinating heritage. The very first Kirk Kara wedding ring ever created was lovingly made by Kirk's father and master jeweler, Artin, for his beautiful bride, Angel. Artin began creating amazing designs inspired by the architecture of Europe, where he and Angel fell in love. The rest is history, and every breathtaking design to follow captures the spirit of this authentic and timeless love story. 

Your own forever captivating engagement ring illustrates the magic of your own love story, to be worn for life and lifetimes to come.
