challenge as all the surfaces have a texture on them, so, I had to be especially
careful with soldering and finishing.

wisdom and profoundly humble selfless work. The card often shows a monk or
nun holding a lantern, offering the enlightenment of self-knowledge to those
who search. I felt a ring as lantern was the key symbol for this piece made of
sterling silver, steel screen, 18-karat gold, and wax
Slide The Lovers Stainless steel plates are held together with spaced platinum rivets. Tension
set between the plates are six .05ct. F/VS2 diamonds for a total weight
of .30ct. The Lovers is the 6th card of the Major Arcana and all aspects
of this ring are based on the number 3 and it's multiples, which has sigificance
within the Tarot.
