Manley Design Custom Ring Order | Hi Octane Jewelry

We just finished this custom ordered emblem ring. Dan Manley of Manley Designs conceived this ring design from a Cadillac toaster the he designed. What is a Cadillac Toaster you ask? See it here. Dan built the MD logo emblem for his toaster then thought it would make a cool emblem ring. So he built the ring in a 3D program. Then sent us the file. We milled the ring and cast the ring in sterling silver.
I just love the way it turned out and so did Dan.
