KJ Couples: Claire and Daniel

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 Family 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 Claire & Daniel, two absolute sweethearts who radiate love and light!

When did you know that your partner was THE ONE?

It was a few years into dating and I realized everything was better when he
came along. Road trips, the grocery store, a walk around the neighborhood,
he made me smile and enjoy all of it ten-fold.

What is one thing you love about your significant other?

I love his sense of purpose. He is such a kind soul who really wants to
help this world be a better place. I have always admired how hard he works
for others even when no one is watching and I feel so blessed he picked me
to share it with.

What is an activity you love to do together?

There’s two that stick out as the best times we ever have. First, the San
Diego Zoo. Our second date was at the zoo, he proposed to me there, we saw
a giraffe born on my birthday there! It’s such a magical place full of
wonder and awe and each visit has a new route and new discoveries that
truly brings out the child in both of us. The second is concerts. We love
live music and both have eclectic tastes which always makes for an
adventure. Daniel leads me by example to drop my guard and really immerse
myself in the fun of the show and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

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

We actually met in college, 10 years before we started dating. We were
friendly with each other but mutual friends kept us in contact much more so
than our own friendship. We reconnected at a party where Claire was
overserved and allegedly hit on Daniel. I don’t believe it but Daniel is
adamant it happened. A hang out followed, which is still hotly contested
as our first date- or not! It was a great time and the familiarity in our
past helped catapult us right into dating!

How did he/she propose?

At the zoo of course! Just a regular November day the two of us out for a
morning stroll. I knew we’d made a ring but had no idea when or where he
would surprise me with it, or if it was even done! He’d had it in his
pocket and sprung it on me right at the start. Every time we visit we
always go back to our little spot.

How does Kasia Jewelry fit into your story?

Kasia Jewelry is the everyday symbol of our commitment and affection for
each other.

We went downtown together to look at diamonds she sourced for us. She found
the perfect round and I got to go take a peek at it before handing the
reigns over to Daniel. I discussed with Kasia some of the things I
envisioned for my ring, my stack, and she lead Daniel through the decision
making process and the two of them created the most beautiful story. Daniel
picked out three stacking bands to accent my solitaire and he did such a
great job with her guidance. I don’t always wear them all, I don’t always
wear them in the same order. Each day and each mood dictate how my story
will look on my hand and I love it! I love that I can change it up, scale
it back or really show off with all of them.
For our wedding we went back and picked out 3 earrings I would wear to
celebrate our day. I’ve never taken them out 3 years later and they’re
still sparkly and gorgeous! Memories to last a lifetime.
We recently added another band to my wedding stack and each time I get to
meet with Kasia her genuine kindness and beautiful artistry are on full
display. Soon I will have Kasia start to work on a custom right hand piece
and we’ll turn another page on our story.
