This is easily my favourite design so far this year! My client is getting married and was given his grandfather's ring to wear. The ring was plain yellow gold and way too small. I was asked if I could jazz it up a bit or reuse the metal to make a new ring. My approach is to keep the original ring if possible. In this case I cut the ring open and rolled it on itself literally turning it inside out. Inside the band are several hall marks that reveals the original maker, country, metal type. I thought this was a great way to show the history of the ring. I then encased the ring in white gold. This protects the original ring and modernises it a bit.
