The idea originates back to the 16th century when English serfs would use their silver cutlery as wedding rings. They did this because they could not afford an actual gold wedding ring.
This story was told to my brother (the original Spoonman) back in 1967 by two retired diamond cutters from England that he had met in Florida.
Since then, the idea has grown to the variety of articles you see here.
I hope you enjoy them.
