so, i'll get right to it..
me and the FH will be wed in november. i'm trying to find him a damn ring. he's a geologist and proposed last december with ring from melissa joy manning. it's a pretty chunk of raw diamond that i absolutely love. and it's a part of him that i carry around everyday. (barf)
i guess i just want to make sure he's just as proud to his ring around as i am. he wants silver for sure, and he found these inlay rings with dinosaur bone. (this one) i thought it was awesome! but then...
he goes nerdballs on me and because the maker doesn't know where the bone is from or what species it is, so it's obviously not going to work. i think his exact words were, "i can't be walking around with some fucking plant eater on my hand"
so since - i've gone through tons of meteorite inlay rings and neither him or i like the ones i have found (example), done searches for things made from igneous rocks like labradorite, granite, or something of that nature and can't find a damn thing i think would fit him or his style.
so any suggestions/ideas/ANYTHING would help.
My ladies of catbird (who know everything there is to know about rad/crazy/fabulous jewelry) suggested Nikolai Rose, maker of the Channel Set Bone Ring, or Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons, maker of the Woolly Ring Necklace.*
Get in touch with those boys. Find out what it would cost you to have something custom made.
And then report back, will you? WE WANNA SEE THE RING.
