When I got married, many, many moons ago, my wife and I designed our own rings and worked with the jeweler who made them. It was a wonderful experience and the rings became even more deeply encoded with meaning.

Software developer Matt Katz got even more hands-on with the romance tech by fabricating his fiance’s engagement ring out of some white gold, a few flecks of rose gold, and a Moissanite gemstone. Such a thoughtful, handcrafted offering will surly be treasured in an extra special way. On his blog, Matt documents the build process. The resulting ring is quite lovely. Congrats to Matt (and the lucky lady)!
