I still remember the first time I met Francis Libiran. It was back in 2012 when I visited his studio in Quezon City with two friends, one of whom was getting married the following year. She’s the first to get married in the barkada, so we were all thrilled to meet for the first time the charming designer whose gowns were coveted by almost every bride and who is known worldwide for his stylish, trailblazing designs. We even Skyped with our other friend who was abroad at the time, just so she can be part of the experience. The bridal gown Francis sketched for my friend was so exquisite, and I secretly wished I can wear one of his designs when I walked down the aisle one day.

Fast-forward to 2017: My own wedding is a mere seven months away. By now, I’ve ticked off most of the major items on our massive wedding checklist—one of the few we haven’t yet are our wedding rings. Sadly, I wasn’t able to get myself a Francis Libiran wedding gown. However, as if by fate, I was invited to the launch of the designer’s new wedding and engagement ring collection, Forever Francis Libiran. Maybe I still have a chance to become a Francis Libiran Bride after all—in fact, we can be a Francis Libiran couple—if we pick his creations for our wedding rings.

“The market for weddings is huge!” exclaimed Libiran. “As a fashion designer, I have created various wedding gowns for many clients and oftentimes, they would ask my advice on wedding rings. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to get into the engagement and wedding rings business, and J’s Diamond is the perfect partner, as they have the expertise and experience when it comes to fine jewelry.”
