Pathetic Peripatetic

Most of my followers expect Doctor Who related posts, I made a Police Box Ring that I occasionally post about, and my username is a reference to a specific strip of an out-of-print newspaper comic (Some people got it!). I grew up with video games and television (people like this are rare, I'm sure) and am currently employed as a jeweler CAD technician. Quite often those two things interject. You can email me at GinoArizmendi@artgemsjewelers.com

I’m working on a personal project where I’m placing pins over the areas where I sold one of the police box rings*. I just finished 2012 sales and looking at the map it seems to coincide mostly with the US population density maps. A bunch of pins are bunched up in New England, and then there’s Maine. Maine did not like me in 2012. There are a few rings in the UK (which is expected), but more than I thought would be for Calgary, Canada. Not one sale in my home state Illinois for that first year. Although I do recall the crack necklace being sold and shipped to a guy in Canada, who then gave it to his girlfriend who lives in Illinois, and she knew my little brother.

It’s been years since I really looked at a map of the world, but like really look. For one thing Kazakhstan is a lot larger than I thought, for some reason I thought it was more of an Italy sized country—but it is not. I think it’s even bigger than India or about the size of Alaska. I was completely surprised by the existence of Svalbard and Franz Josef Land.

And not to spoil the 2013 pictures, but my rings are on 5 of the 7 world continents, the two missing being Antarctica and Africa. Something I didn’t realize until I was halfway of the 2013 pin placing. All thanks to THIS POST where I was bored.

If I’ve posted these pictures before, let me know.

The alternative mens band for those who do not want a center stone. Modeled after the Police Box commonly found around London in the 1960s.

I read on Wikipedia once that Police Boxes were invented in Chicago. I don’t know if it’s true but if it is, that means I’m closer to the Police Box homeland than if I were in the UK.

Not available on the website (yet?).

Customized Ring for “K.D.”

Over the weekend while I was answering emails, doing other work related stuff (but not related to the PBRs), I came across this email. A while back someone emailed me asking to put an emerald topaz in the ring, which required modifications as you’ll soon see. They bought a matching ring box to go with it.

I want to let you know that I really appreciate the creativity and excellent quality of the ring that you have crafted for me.  When I first saw this ring on facebook, I knew that it would be really special to my girlfriend.  I know it has taken quite a while of back and forth emailing all of the details to finalize the ring.  I really appreciate your patience, and even more, I am super happy that it came out so good.  I want you to know that I am doing all I can to promote you and your business, and just really am enamored with this ring.  I proposed to my girlfriend with this ring, because she is a huge Dr. Who fan (her family is also really into it) and I scored some major points for that, but it wouldn’t have been possible without you having this ring as a possibility in the first place.  Thank you for making this a possibility :)  Here are a few pictures to go along with how it was presented, and how it looks. 

Question: Heeey there! There's an article on your Police Box ring on the io9 blog (which is a sister site of Gizmodo and Gawker)!!! Thought you should know... Congrats on the well-deserved attention!

Nifty gifty. =’3

I love this new lightbox.

My Police Box Ring; Mens band. This sterling silver band with created sapphires sells for $410 and you should totally contact me to get one. This guy did and now he’s cooler than you.

A match made in freaking heaven. 

This photo is from awhile ago. Since this photo was taken some of these police box rings have been cast, pre-polished, stones set in, polished again, tested for time manipulation abilities*, hugged, heartbreaking goodbye’d, boxed and shipped.
I figured you guys would be interested in looking at what Step 2 looked like. Step 1, of course, being to move onto Step 2.
*Flux capacitors and 1.21 Gigawatts needed.
Edit: For the record, when you get them, they’re sterling silver, not yellow.

My wife LOVES it and I’m sure this will be something that will stay in my family for generations to come.

Happy Customer for the Police Box Ring.

This is my Police Box Ring cast in Sterling Silver set with Cubic Zirconium for $380 plus shipping. These photos are a continuation of my previous post with the same ring set with Created Sapphires. If you want your own, you can contact me at my work email.

If you want something customized, tell me about it and we’ll talk. Someone asked for a Sapphire in the center and the rest diamonds, someone else asked for the ring in diamonds and Palladium, and another person asked me for my bank information to transfer 10.5USD into my bank account. Just kidding.

My current count is 17 emails asking for my bank account info, not just one. Enjoy~
