she found me on line (on pinterest, i believe). as most jewelry has a story to tell, this is hers. after her husband passed, she wanted to wear hers & his marriage bands in the original shape, not to change them in any way. both rings were engraved. his ring had been passed down through his family for a generation or two.
while she did not specify not to solder in the fabrication, somehow i felt she would prefer the simplification of rings and links. she supplied the 14k gold wedding bands. i supplied my favorite chain links, the cable chain and the design sense.
i emailed several different designs. since she loved them all, she solicited advice from friends via email. in the end she chose the one i liked the best as well!
