You guys passed the test on this one. The piece came out very nice and with a good surface finish.
I had the piece made in polished silver and I don't regret jumping right to the top pricewise ($55) on this piece. This was my first time working with Shapeways and I can assure you that I'll be coming back with more pieces.
While the image is a render the actual piece looks just as nice. I'll post pictures when I get them. The piece is about Ø1.25".
Thanks Shapeways, I'm certain that my wife will enjoy opening this present on Christmas!
