Winters Howl ring.
I have been watching PAD YouTube videos for close to a year. I find his detailed explanation to every step of making his rings entertaining, relaxing and informative. So on 3/25/21 I ordered the Winters Howl ring after doing live chat and emails back and forth for a few days as questions and concerns popped into my head.
*Con: YouTube gives an unrealistic view on how long it can take to make each ring. (A couple hours or a day to cut, size, carved inlay channel, sand and polish. Then maybe another hour or so to do the inlay, cure resin, sand and final polish.)
*Warring: Not really a Con per-say but more of a warning. For those who don’t know, the colors you see online can and will be different in different types of lighting. i.e artificial, sunlight, LED. When I ordered this ring, I was under the impression the the glow color would be a darker blue then what it actually is. During daylight, the blue pigment shows as a medium/light aqua to light royal blue.
*Pros: The quality of this ring can be described as “flawless“. This ring Incorporates tanzanite and blue opal and the amount of each material was well balanced and truly a prime example of amazing craftsmanship.
From the time this order was placed to the delivery of the product was just shy of 8 weeks. I was worried that even though I ordered this ring at the end of March, it would not arrive by my boyfriends birthday in July. For my experience, this fear was unfounded. Another fear was the unknown…
