Since my girlfriend is from Berlin and Christmas is a big thing in Germany (being a Dutch guy, I prefer Sinterklaas Wink ) I decided to give her something special this year. I've made a ring shaped as the contour of the Berlin city map and placed the heart as a pin point at the exact location where she grew up and where here parents still live.

The shipping part was nerve wrecking, since the Christmas rush caused quite a big delay, but thanks to Shapaways' wonderful customer service, and Michon in particular, everything arrived just in time (about an hour before I had to leave for the airport Very Happy )

I am very pleased with the way the ring turned out. Thanks to 3 prototypes it fits perfectly and it's way more solid than I expected.
The earrings are less special, but they are where meant as a little extra (hidden under a double bottom) so that's alright.
I am less happy with the box though, since the box was still wet upon arrival, the dyeing is quite unevenly and there are some irregularities in the printing (especcialy the cover) And since I didn't have the time to let the box dry, the black paint of the padding got sucked into the box, which is now black at some parts Sad But hey, I was the only one who noticed all of that and my girlfriend was really happy with it so that's what counts in the end!

The ring
