Q: When did you first meet and how?
A: We actually have a very romantic-comedy first meeting. It was our freshman year of high school and we were on a school field trip. I saw Anthony walking down the aisle of the school bus and instantly knew I had to talk to him. I turned to one of my best friends and told her how cute he was. I, being my forward self, decided to hit on him in the most outrageous way possible.
Anthony is comparably more introverted and was taken aback by how forward I was, but it was certainly memorable and so after a year of flirting, we’ve been together ever since. My dad has actually recently reminded me that after that very day of school, I came home and told him I met the man I want to marry. Little did we know how accurate that was!
Q: What about it made you choose this ring design to be the one?
A: We both wanted something classic. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry but what I do wear is classic and refined. I had been pinning round brilliant stone set solitaires on Pinterest and dropping hints with him at every possible moment.
Q: How did you first hear about us?
A: Anthony and I were in our last semester of college when I started looking into rings more. I had decided I wanted something conflict-free and discovered moissanite through my research.
Around that time, Fire & Brilliance popped up on my Instagram feed, I fell into the rabbit hole and in love with the company's mission and all the beautiful possibilities for a conflict-free piece.
Q: How was your overall experience with Fire & Brilliance?
A: Our experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Anthony felt that the website was very easy to use and loved that he could customize every aspect of the ring. He also says that when he needed information about delivery, payment, etc. the people at Fire & Brilliance were quick to respond and help at every step in the process.
Lastly, we wanted to ask something of each our clients to be featured a question that is unique to their story.
Q: If you could describe each other with one adjective, what would it be and why?
A: Francesca - I would describe Anthony as generous. He is without a doubt one of the most generous people I know, whether he realizes it or not. Anthony is always willing to help a person in need, especially those he loves. With something as simple as grabbing something off the top shelf, or driving hours to make you feel better, there is not much he wouldn’t do for those in his life.
