before pictures of knot ringDear Calla,

I bought this beautiful antique knot ring online from England. The only problem was that it wasn’t my size. The merchant offered to have a local jeweler size it at my expense and then ship it. I said yes. I’ve just opened my package and I can’t stop crying, it is just ruined.

Why is my beautiful crisp knot now so blobby looking? Can you do anything? Can you tell me what happened so I never go through this again?

Am I being overly picky?

As a jewelry blogger I knew my blogger life would be incomplete without exploring jewelry from other space loving jewelers. I asked Lord Google to show me some examples of heavenly jewelry and I’ll share some of the space jewelry I found on my virtual search. Continue reading →
