-Thank you again for your patience and amazing artistry. The ring is just exquisite. I absolutely love it! - Aimee, Oakland, CA
- The rings are rough but smooth, shiny but subtle, artsy but classic, and they make a statement while being understated. They have both heft and elegance to them. I not only love to look at them, but it feels good to run my finger over the band--the texture is amazing. I am so glad Mickey recommended you to us. We couldn't be happier with the results. – Donna, Washington, DC
- My heart is jumping out of my chest!!! This ring is so beautiful!!!!! Thank you!!!! - Laritza, Austin, TX
