He 3D-Printed an Engagement Ring Based on Human Heart Fibers — And She Said Yes! Take a Look

It may sound strange, but it’s perfect for his now-wife.

Fastco Design reports on a man who used 3D printing to create an engagement ring based on data visualization of human hear fibers. That may sound strange, but the jewelry was perfect for his now-wife, Nina Tandon, who works in the field of tissue engineering.

The platinum band was designed by Manca Ahlin. Keating bought a lab-grown diamond — a 2.08-carat, super ideal cut stone — from Brilliant Earth to go with it.

Tandon tells Fastco Design she loves the ring because it’s unique and beautiful and “because it’s steeped in my work and things that are important to me.”

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
