Alisha discussed this band with me in July 2014 then disappeared for months. She came back in January 2015. The ring is supposed to be made out of granite set in the strongest material available. Her fiance makes pottery so pretty much any regular material would be damaged. For that reason I made it out of Acero Forte, the strongest alloy that can still be carved and polished, although with much more effort than silver or steel. She also requested a wonderful personal message that I engraved after the pictures were taken.
