Great things happen when scientists fall in love. Manpreet and Sascha met as trainees at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute in Toronto seven years ago, where she was a Master’s student and he a post-doctoral fellow.

Now, Sascha is a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Wayne State University in Detroit, and Manpreet is finishing up her PhD. They chose a Tiny Flame by Zaven, whose unique design showcases all sides of the brilliant diamond.

“What appealed the most about a Diamond Foundry ring was that it is man-made,” says Manpreet. “As two people in scientific fields, we thought it was incredible that diamonds no longer need to be mined, and it was very fitting that our engagement ring was also created by scientists.”
