A near catastrophe

The clients ordered this a couple of months prior to a long trip that they had planned.
I messed up with the due date, and was away in Germany when they were about to leave. The work wasn't finished. They were very disappointed.

Finished the project upon my return home, and wrote to them to let them know that it was finished. No reply for weeks.

Received a e-mail much later, and it became apparent that good fortune had smiled upon us all in a bent sort of fashion. They had been robbed on 3 separate occasions while in India, and all of their stuff taken...passports, credit cards, bags, the works.

The ring was waiting for them upon their return.

That is one gorgeous ring! Did you make it to your client's own design? If the ring was mine I'd be very glad not to have taken it on my travels!

Coincidence, I think not! You gave them something wonderful to come home too! Ecspecially with such a horrible trip. The ring is beautiful! I really like the star! Can you send more shots of all the sides? You have me wanting to see every angle!

Wow, that's a great story. Sometimes these things are meant to happen

Very lovely ring by the way - the sapphires are like the night sky.

Your work is always so unique! I am a big fan of stars and that ring is gorgeous. And, a happy ending to what sounds like a not so happy start to the story.

That is a very nice ring. When you make a ring like that do you use wax for the mold? Afraid I am not aware how custom rings are made.
