Our client's husband designed their wedding rings and had us create them in 1991. When the couple married, they each already had three children. Each of the rings had their birthstone, and then three diamonds representing their three children. The husband passed away in 2012, and his wife turned to Hartley Jewelers to have his ring melted down and made into three crosses for his daughters. "I took the diamonds that represented the three girls off of his ring and put one in the center of each cross," she says of the delicate necklaces. "They turned out really beautiful," she says of the crosses, which she gave to the girls on a recent trip to Seaside, Oregon, where the family scattered the man's ashes. "Right before we headed to the beach, I handed them their crosses. I told them it was a gift from their dad and I."
