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!

KJ Couples: Amy and Tim

 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 Amy and Tim, adventure-lovers from San Diego.


When did you know that your partner was THE ONE?

Neither of us can pinpoint a specific date, but we both knew early on in our relationship. Communication was easy for us and we were always so present in each moment together. 


What is one thing you love about your significant other?

Tim said, "the way she looks at me and how that makes me feel - comforted, important, loved."


What is an activity you love to do together?

Hiking! We love the outdoors. On the trail, with everything stripped away, we have our best and deepest conversations.


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

We met while hiking for a Make-A-Wish fundraiser on the Pacific Crest Trail. We hiked 10 miles together on the 28-mile one-day hike. Our conversation was smooth and easy.


How did he/she propose?

After camping a night in the woods under the pines (my favorite!), Tim took me back to the same spot on the trail we met on. After hiking a few miles, he set up a camera and tricked me into thinking we were just taking some pictures in front of the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) sign. He then got down on one knee and proposed. Our wedding ceremony is even taking place on the Pacific Crest Trail!


How does Kasia Jewelry fit into your story?

Kasia jewelry is untraditional, like our love story. My Muse engagement ring and Mali wedding band have that old soul love story vibe that we were looking for. When I saw the Muse Ring, I thought of Tim, and instantly knew we found my ring.

KJ Couples: Emily and Aly

First up, we have Emily and Aly! Amazingly sweet dog parents from Florida.

When did you know that your partner was THE ONE?

From the moment I met her. Aly radiates the most incredible energy and I fell in love with her after an hour of spending time with her!

What is one thing you love about your significant other?

I adore the passion that Aly has. Whether she’s diving into a new creative project, trying to improve her basketball skills or cooking one of her favorite recipes, she dives head first into the process and puts her whole heart and soul into everything she does.

What is an activity you love to do together?

Aly and I both love plants! So we try to find new nurseries, farms and plant shops in south Florida to visit in our free time together.

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

Aly and I met on New Year’s Eve (2016 going into 2017) and both were talked into going out by a mutual friend. We met at our favorite sushi restaurant, she offered me a sip of her iced green tea (her fave) and hit it off right away! One of the things that made me fall in love with Aly that night was that she made a point to call her grandma in the middle of dinner to wish her a happy 90th birthday. My heart literally melted! 

How did he/she propose?

We proposed to each other on the same day! We both had rings made by Kasia and in true Florida summer fashion we got engaged in our bikinis under the palm trees in our backyard.

How does Kasia Jewelry fit into your story?

Being 2 women, we often get asked “so.... do you both get rings?” Or  “who proposes to who?” And we decided we didn’t want to have to follow any rules or expectations! We had been looking for the perfect rings for a long time and when I came across Kasia’s work on Instagram, we knew it was meant to be. Kasia highlighted our love in the most wonderful way & helped us make our own rules when it came to our engagement! The entire team was so helpful and the process was so wonderful. I feel like we made a lifelong connection with Kasia, and now we can’t wait to pick wedding rings!
