Default My Daughters ring

I have not posted here in a while life has just been crazy busy, hope all is still well with everyone.
My daughter is getting baptized on Sunday and my wife and I thought it would be good to get her something to commemorate the event. Then I thought it would be fun to make her a ring so it had a little more personal side to it. I started off with a S.S. bolt then milled and turned it into the finished product. It was fun to make, and I think I will make more.

I got my wife a 1 carat (or so) diamond ring, a tear drop stone. After we had been married about 15 years, LOL. Got it from some Hasidic diamond merchants on Christmas eve around 47th street in New York City.

Thats pretty neat. I like the "scales"

Curious about the bolt, Looks like its graded with hashmarks? Never seen SS graded like that, just name, alloy and strength.

I am a little envious of your daughter. Looks like it would go well for either male/female.

Great Job!

I'm sure your daughter will doubly treasure the ring.

That's very nice.
