Recently I collaborated with a fellow Etsian, and I could not be more pleased with the outcome! So here’s the story. I bought this amazing ring back when I was in college, I wore it EVERY day for 5+ years and received many compliments on it. A few years ago the stone broke, and I was broken hearted. I tried my hand at cutting, shaping and polishing stones via The Des Moines Lapidary Society and got my hands on the stone I wanted to use for my ring. But I moved to Florida before I could work on it. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. After admiring his work and purchasing his cabochons, I contacted Jim of Cabochon Designer, one of my favorite shops on Etsy! I asked if he could make my ring whole again, to which he said he would try! I sent him my ring and the raw stone I had found in Iowa, and he had finished it within a few days of receiving my package!
He did an AMAZING job, as you can see! (the ring is actually upside down in this photo) I am thrilled to start wearing this ring again, and can’t thank Jim enough!
This is just one example of why I love Etsy. If you contact a seller you can get a wonderful personalized experience, and typically find exactly what you are looking for! Be sure to check out Jim’s shop, he is a very talented jeweler!
