The first home for an old stone
Our ring is not a diamond ring. It is a Lake County "diamond," only found in Lake County California. They are also known as Moon Tears according to a local Native American legend. My fiance's dad grew up in the 1950's in this county and collected loads of these raw stones with his Grandma Werta. She sent an extra large one they found to a jeweler to be cut. It was never worn, just kept in a bag with a few other cut and raw Lake County diamonds for years. This spring, my fiance's mother found this little stash and the remarkable stone. It now has found a home on my hand in and this is the beautiful result!
