Story: A Birthday Ring… D. wanted to surprise his wife with a special ring for her birthday. Where to start? We started with the gemstone. He knew the exact color he wanted- his wife is a big University of Kentucky supporter, and UK’s color is Wildcat Blue. I took the color swatch to a gem show with me so I could match it- and found a sparkling 1 carat sapphire in an unusual shape- perfect! He showed me some photos some projects from my portfolio that he liked so I could get a sense of what style he had in mind. I did some drawings, and I got his approval on the renderings shown.
Then I created the wax, cast and finished the ring. And then for the best part, the surprise… I love helping celebrate birthdays! Testimonial: “I wanted to thank you for creating the beautiful ring that D. gave me for my birthday. It is a treasure- you are so talented and creative. And yes, I was very surprised to receive such a special gift!”
