I'm marrying the most beautiful woman in the world, I got it stuck in my head to make her ring though... First one I've ever done in 8 years of turning... Came out perfect.... Not sure if that is the ring so much or just because she is wearing it. The photo of terrible, there is no ghosting and the color is actually a deep red.

Pics don't want to upload so here is the link

Congratulations to both of you! That is very nice and the ring will have double the significance by your crafting it. The ring will be an heirloom to be passed on.
BTW, I saw a youtube video of a couple that had been married for 80 years- he was 104 and she was 102. Gives you something to shoot for!

We're full believers that getting married is a once in a lifetime event... I hope we can grow old enough to be together that long.

I was engaged to my wife 65 years ago unlike you my ring making experience was zilch so I sold my motor bike to buy the ring. On our 50th anniversary I invited my dearly beloved to come with me for lunch. We stopped at the church we were married in and I surprised her sitting in the chapel there with a new ring. I think she shed tears for a solid half an hour.She is my best friend now for 67 years this month married for 64 yrs.There have been numerous rings over the years,each one received and worn with pride.
Two ceremonies one a Church marriage and in 1962 married for time and all eternity.

This ring you fashioned is so special mate,thanks for sharing.

Kind regards may you enjoy your union.

Peter.
