my job

So recently I started working for Schubot Jewellers which is a old high end Detroit jeweller, they carry really expensive jewelry and make custom stuff for the wealthy and CEO types of the area. The jewelry is incredible. Here's a pic of a picture I took of one of my rings, this was given to my grandma by my grandpa when they first started dating. It's a Tigers Eye with a carving of a spartan head, this motif was popular for the time but mainly seen in men's rings and were usually bulky "class ring" styles. This is I guess pretty rare to have such a small stone on quite a dainty ring. Also the bumps along the gold band were made to give the illusion of diamonds in the setting, this was because really the common person could not afford diamonds during that time... Well hope you enjoy.
