We're engaged!

This morning my wonderful boyfriend Peter proposed with a paper prototype engagement ring! We're using the prototype ring to get feedback on the concept [grin], and put it through some user acceptance & social network testing prior to making the big investment in a real engagement ring. So far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive!

The ring is hand made, with letterpress banding and text that reads "Temp Ring" along side an impeccably crafted paper diamond. It's perfect, and especially fitting for someone in User Experience like myself. My fiancĂ© worked with Cast Iron Design Company and their work is impecable - credit to Peter for such a charming idea.
