Several years ago I took my grandma's ring to Licata and asked for suggestions on what to do with it. I ended up using some of the stones to make some earrings and a pendant necklace. I said upfront that I didn't want to spend a fortune, and that didn't deter the man I worked with. I was very pleased with the pieces he made for me and I was treated well. The work was done in a timely manner, even though it was right before Christmas!
