Mr. Daniel Krieg and Mｒs. Waka Krieg
Q1: Why did you choose MOKUMEGANEYA rings?
A1: On the quest of our wedding rings we discovered MOKUMEGANEYA
on the Internet rather coincidently. However, we were that much fascinated
from this ancient Japanese handcraft that we soon made an appointment.
It was that time when we realized that MOKUMEGANEYA will create uniquely
rings only made for us.
Q2: Please tell us your experience when you came to MOKUMAGANEYA the first
time to decide the design of your rings:
A2: It was so exciting choosing material, composition, design, shape and pattern
of our future wedding rings. And the staff of MOKUMEGANEYA brought us so
nicely from one subject to the other. It was like a lovely game, like a poem of
composing "our" perfect wedding rings.
Q3: What do you like most on your rings?
A3: As we are from different cultures the rings are composed from different
materials. We have chosen white-gold, silver and little pink-gold which
became combined so lovely that we see the symbol of our different cultures,
Japan and Switzerland, reflecting in it.
Q4: What did you think when you saw your rings for the first time?
A4: We must confess that we were three months inpatient awaiting that
moment. And then, in that moment when the rings were brought to us and
when the box was opened... honestly, we had tears in our eyes and we were
overwhelmed by deep emotions one can't imagine. We were so excited
finally seeing and touching "our" rings specially made for us.
Q5: How was the reaction of your friends and relatives about your wedding rings:
A5: Of course we were asked what kind of rings we have chosen. We were
surprised that neither our relatives nor our friends have heard about this old
Japanese traditional handcraft. So we proudly told the story of coincidently
finding it onto the internet again and again. Everybody was interested to hear
about this Japanese goldsmith's art.
Q6: Please let us know something of your life:
A6: We met each other in Japan in 2001 where we are currently living. In autumn
2009 we went to Switzerland for our wedding. The wedding day with our
families and friends in a 800 year old castle and our three weeks (!) lasting
honeymoon on the way back to Japan over Singapore and Thailand was such a
great and unforgettable time. Even we like Japan very much we are now
looking forward to our future live in Switzerland which starts 2011 spring.
Our MOKUMEGANEYA rings will beside other memories always remind us to
the time when we were living in Japan.
