Tati Westbrook – Quintessa Engagement Ring

Tati Westbrook married longtime boyfriend James Westbrook in January of 2017. James visited Matthew’s Jewelry Store in Studio City, California and connected with the owner Aida Bogosian instantly. Aida is also the current CEO of Michael B. Jewelry following the passing of Michael B. in April 2014.

Tati’s beautiful Quintessa Wide Band Engagement Ring was custom made for her and tailored to suit her extraordinary taste. Aida had this to say about the couple:

James and Tati are one of the most beautiful couple’s we have ever had the pleasure of creating an engagemeng ring for. James worked so hard to make sure Tati was absolutey blown away by the final piece. I hope she’ll enjoy wearing it as much as I did making it for her.

Here are a few pictures we’ve borrowed from Tati’s Instagram page where she features the ring:
