I ordered this ring 1 month after my husband died. Ashley was so accommodating with any questions I had. I received it October 1st. It come out better than I could have imagined. She added opal "dust" that looks similar to abalone. My husband used to scuba dive for abalone, so that was our special "colors". I feel like this ring is a little bit of me and a little bit of my husband mixed into one. I will cherish it forever. Thank you Ashley. Your work is beautiful.
