Taking pictures of your hand is awkward so you're just going to have to ignore the cartilage popping out. And I never really noticed all that fine hair on my knuckles before, is that normal? But that's not really what you're looking at, are you? You're thinking 'woah, what a lovely, elegant ring'. ;-) Well, thank you. I think so too.
I'm very please with how it turned out. Especially since I'm horrible at picturing what things will look like if I'm not, well, looking right at them.
We ended up buying the pieces of the ring at different places and having a lapidary put it together for us. I was very nervous up until the day I picked it up. Then, pure relief, I loved it. I mean, I do have to wear this thing forever so I don't really think I was over reacting when I agonized over my decision here.
The metal, in case you're wondering, is platinum. I liked the weighty feel of it and I didn't want to have to worry about re-dipping white gold the rest of my life.
Notice how the star moves around a bit? I think it makes it kind of ethereal.
Now I just have to decide what type of ring to get Jeff. I think we're leaning toward tungsten...
