I like tigers eye but I think it's the worst part of this ring. It's gotta go. Looks like a nice spot for my rutilated quartz and abalone marriage, though. Considering the project, the fact that these pieces aren't for a particular person, and that they are definitely one offs I decided to make the final piece a pendant instead of ring, which would have to be a specific size. This will open it up to more people giving it a versatility a ring might not have.
