Mokume Rings

Yay and from what I read in the articles a lot of the diamond dealers were fooled by the man made diamonds. One of the companies etches theirs so you know that it's made by them, and they'll also add trace amounts of nickle which is another tag to identify it.

 

Yeah you're right though, it doesn't matter where they come from really, it's just a personl preference and somethings one of budget as well. The articles I had read did suggest getting certificates of authenticity if you get natural ones.

Wow, those are lovely! Good luck to you. You'll be fine, as emotionally scary as proposals can be. And congratulations!

 

I was thinking of making the wedding bands for my fiancee and myself, but luckily we're not planning on getting married for a couple of years yet. So I have some time to practice. Also, since I've only hatched this plot in recent months and haven't told Aric about it, it won't matter if I discover I can't make the rings to my satisfaction.

 

You did a wonderful job! Now you will have to make her more jewelry...

Mariah,  some women like sharp knives more than a pretty bauble.

Trust me, I'm one of those. So is my valkyrie of a mother. But that doesn't mean we can't love jewelry too... especially when it is carefully crafted and hand-made.

 

I was just hoping it had gone well for him; proposals are stressful. That's all.

Ok Well I am back from Xmas at my parents. Traveling from California to Idaho in this bizarre weather trend was not fun at all and we were forced to spend a night in Reno hehe. No we did not get married in Reno, but She did say Yes when I proposed on Xmas mourning. I waited until all the gifts were handed out and she thought I may have been serious when I said I did not get her anything hehe. She was about to insult me when I pulled her gift box from a Tree limb. She tried really hard to not to pass out when she opened the box. She suspected nothing BWAHAHAHAHAHA and I literally stunned her with my proposal. Still she did not hesitate to say yes. My Dad even caught the moment on video. It was all abit much for her and She was overwhelmed when I told her I made the ring myself and a matching one for myself. She thought I might have had them made so it hit her again when she found out I made them hehe. All in all it went very well. Thank you everyone for all your happy thoughts and kind words.

Regards,

Patrick Hastings

Well done, Patrick. On the rings and the proposal of marriage! :35:

 

Now I have to get my wife to stop pestering for me to make her some more jewelery as it has been some time since I made anything for her. <_<

 

Not that I blame *you* or anything. :lol: :ylsuper:
