As the Winter Olympics steadily approach, we wanted to give a shout-out to one of our customers, who also happens to be an Olympian. Douglas Steven Coppola Jr. came to Brilliance when preparing his proposal to now-wife Katharine Ann Hagler. They met in 2007 during training at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California where Katharine was training for the national women’s canoe and kayak team. Steven was training for the rowing team and took home a bronze medal in rowing at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
We are happy Brilliance was able to provide the ring for such a happy couple. And we want to wish the best of luck to our team in the upcoming Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. As a company that proudly makes all of our jewelry in the USA, you can bet we are rooting for our proud Olympians!
