    A very pretty ring made all the more so by the hand on which it resides - and the thought that placed it there.

    That is to pretty not to post. Made all the more precious by who made it and who's hand it is on.

    that's gorgeous. One of my uncles turned his wife's wedding ring from a silver quarter. He cut it to rough shape, leaving more "meat" on it than you'd normally do. Then, he slipped it onto a hardened steel bar and hammered it down to flatten / widen it. Then, back to the lathe for final sizing, dressing, and polish.
    It was born out of necessity - still an apprentice without much money and saving pennies for their house. It was really a nice ring. I always thought it would be neat if more spouses made each other's rings (i made my wife's - no lathe work though).
    That's quite an heirloom.

    When he gave it to you, did he say "wood" you marry me?
