Dear Calla – Inherited Grandpa’s Ring

Dear Calla GoldDear Calla,

My grandad left me his wedding band and my super irresponsible, but lovable, brother wants to know why he didn’t get it. I suspect it’s because he wrecks cars, loses keys, leaves his wallet all over the place, and is the reason they invented “find my iphone.”

Anyway, what can I do to quickly feminize this manly wide band ring so the next time he sees it he’s no longer interested? Did I mention he’s all about body building and a real guys guy? Yeah, he has not gotten in touch with his feminine side yet.

Dear Grandpa’s Fav,

I’ve seen a lot of women inherit grandpa’s ring. I love the idea of all the love wrapped up in the wedding band that is worn for years. The best way to feminize your ring is to quickly size it down to your smaller fingers and then to add hand engraving to make it look great on your hand.

The picture here is a grandpa ring with swirly feminine engraving that looks amazing on my client.

I’m thinking your brother will take one look at your engraved ring and turn on Monster Truck Rally and be done with that little discussion.
