KJ Couples: Zelti & Mikey

Posted by Angeline Weiss on

We love your love! That is why we have decided to reach out to a few of our amazing Kasia Tribe members, new and returning, to tell their stories. Love is powerful, beautiful, diverse and worthy of honoring through your unique story. By sharing these openly with you, we intend to spread joy in a time when we need it the most. We understand the privilege it is to be a part of your story, and we hope the sincerity of these couples will reflect the very special relationships we aim to have with everyone who walks through our doors (whether in-person or virtually).

Next up, we have Zelti and Mikey, ultra cool surfers from South Africa.

When did you know that your partner was THE ONE?

It wasn’t an exact moment, but more a feeling that grew over time. We were very young when we started dating, but it was just so effortless, and our chemistry and connection was so strong that I knew right away that I wanted him to be a part of my life forever. 

What is one thing you love about your significant other?

Oh no this is so tricky because there is so much I love about him! But I would say he is extremely kindhearted, which is a quality I hugely respect and admire in him.

What is an activity you love to do together?

Honestly, everything! We do everything together, live together, travel together, work together, but even the most simple things like playing card games at home, cooking or going for a walk or surf together is just so fun and amazing.

How did you two meet? (Give us as many details as you’d like!)

We met in a bar in Cape Town when we were both far too young to even be there, ha! We didn’t immediately start dating though because Mikey was traveling and competing a lot and I was still in school, but about a year after this we met again and started dating immediately. 

How did he/she propose?

Mikey proposed to me in Porto, which is the most beautiful little city in Portugal. It was very intimate and romantic; we were just having a glass of wine in these stunning Palace gardens that overlooked the whole city when he asked me. I loved it, there were lots of tears and laughter and then he took me to Paris the next day to celebrate, it was incredible!  

How does Kasia Jewelry fit into your story?

So Kasia was a jeweler that I had saved and pinned on my Instagram and Pinterest for a few years and I think after some investigation Mikey caught on to this and contacted Kasia to make my engagement ring. He always says how he had the most seamless, lovely experience and how the Kasia team just made him feel very at ease throughout the whole process.

Then a few months after we got engaged, we drove down to Solana Beach again for me to meet Kasia and for us to choose our wedding bands. This was super exciting because I could finally meet everyone and thank them for my beautiful engagement ring. During our time at the Kasia showroom, I instantly connected with Kasia as she is very warm and personable! We loved the experience entirely and naturally we have kept in contact since then! We can’t wait to visit again and hopefully add some more beautiful, timeless pieces to our collection. 

Thanks Kasia and team!
