When C. of Portland was a child, he loved the shiny gold and shimmery texture of the foil wrapped around Almond Roca candy. He would fold it up into a wide strip and wrap it around his finger to “make a ring”. Fast forward about 30 years. C. is now getting ready to wear a wedding band, and Maloy’s is getting ready to make it for him. Yup, we will be replicating the shape and texture (including the words) of a candy wrapper ring in real gold. How sweet!
Update- when I mentioned this custom job to Cameron, our staff gemologist, she confessed that she used to make rings out of the same candy wrappers, but she twisted the ends on top, to make “a stone”
