    Hello Fellow Prospectors,

    Over the past couple of months my soon to be husband and I have been doing some prospecting. We have found a good amount in gold in some VA dirt and some others. I am getting married in November and have a specific dream for my wedding ring. I want to melt down the gold (refining, etc..) making it into a wedding setting. While prospecting we also have found several large almandine garnets.  That when you put under a LED light it's a bright red it is amazingly beautiful. I wanted to see if any of you know of a trusted person or a company who does jewelry. I know I wont be able to have it for my wedding. I just don't know where to start. I am in love with the idea that I would have mined and prospected my own wedding ring. Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful !!!!

    The only thing I could suggest is to contact Jeweler's Touch in Placentia, California. They are the only ones I'd trust. I had a ring made there 10+ years ago. They are appraising to rings for me this week. They have a large fabrication shop and they are honest.
