I created some time ago the ring "ring flower" and since Shapeways tightened requirements in terms of thickness, I met some problems with them so that none of my rings I have sold had any problems.
So I changed my file magnifying the flower and the ring ... the result is beautiful! we see the layers of printing and I find it very interesting!
Yes I ordered it in silver, and I received the ring exactely like that...Silver is much better for détails, stainless steel is quite rough and very hard to polish... It gives me ideas for other creations!
Could you confirm if this is the Silver or Glossy Silver material? While I would say that in this case the printing layering adds to the texture this is not what I envisioned that silver would look like. Perhaps this is not the Glossy (i.e. polished) Silver?
I ordered this ring "only" in silver, not in glossy because I can polish easely and prefered to keep money. I received the ring exactely like that, it is shiny and I thought as they were very late they polished it to apologise (?) so i can't say if they polished or not but the result was for me very ineresting...!
