Wedding goblet

Made this for the manager of the flooring and countertop store where I shop. It's made out of pear and has a walnut oil finish on it. It's going to the engravers now for the bride & grooms name and the inscription " With this ring I thee wed"

goblet

So how do you do the rings? Or is that a trade secret. The ivory balls in cages always fascinate me. this is similar thing.

Thanks for the comments, they are always welcome and appreciated.
The rings are turned using a captive ring tool and then you have to break one of them and then glue them back interlocked together. If you break the ring instead of cutting it, the glue joint usually can't be seen.
