Story of the restoration
The client for this restoration is a fellow Aussie, he is also a very talented and celebrated photographer (he shot our last campaign). So he has an eye for detail. He had family heirloom that he wanted to wear as a ring. He liked our coin rings but wanted to flip it around with his gold coin and a darker shank. Ray built a crownwork ring that retained the sense of history the coin has but also feels modern.
“This 1912 coin has been passed down through four generations and has traveled with my family around the globe. First with my great grand-parents’ move from Turkey to Greece in 1923, my grandparents move from Greece to Australia in the 1960s and has now accompanied me on my move to the U.S.”
I have never considered myself a jewelry guy, but am so proud to wear this ring and hold my family’s history close. Ray’s understanding as to how special this heirloom made the conception, design and creation of this ring an exciting experience”
