Sandra’s favorite jewel

This is my friend Sandra in a beach basket on Sylt in January. I asked her to wear her favorite piece of jewelry and tell me something about this jewel, particularly why it is so special for her.
Sandra made this ring herself in a goldsmith’s workshop in Frankfurt am Main. Therefore this ring is so special for her: she made it herself and she has become aware of the extensive work process that is hidden behind a handmade piece of jewelry. In addition, she developed the design together with the goldsmith and chose the stone. The appreciation that she brings toward this piece of jewelery goes so far that she only wears it on special occasions. It is, so to speak, her festive ring. I can understand her very well: I am a goldsmith myself, and I know how many hours of work are hidden behind a handmade piece of jewelry.
