Heirloom Gold Wedding Band

paul's wedding ring

This is the first “heirloom gold” wedding band I did.

The idea comes from my daughter Anna:  friends and family of the bride and groom are contacted to contribute gold scraps that will go into the wedding band.  Earring backs, chain links, earrings without a match, gold teeth, pieces of rings, etc. are collected from the family and friends and become a part of the wedding band, symbolic of all their love for and history with the bride or groom.  A portion of the final gold mix is set aside for future generations or siblings as “heirloom gold” that goes into their wedding bands.  I think it’s a great idea.  Since this one I’ve done six more.
