White Day is a day celebrated in Japan on March 14, one month after Valentine's Day.

In Japan, Valentine's Day is observed by females who present chocolate gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to a male, as an expression of love, courtesy or social obligation.
On White Day, the converse happens: males who received a honmei-choco (本命チョコ?, "chocolate of love") or giri-choco (義理チョコ?, "courtesy chocolate") on Valentine's Day are expected to return the favor by giving gifts, usually more expensive.

(From wikipedia)

Anyway, It was White day Yesterday, and I wanted to give my wife more than just some expensive sweet. So this is what I made and gave to her.
I gave her some wooden rings before, and she just likes it, wearing it on special occasions, so I hope she wears this one also…

It's made of, White ash, Karin (Padoauk), cherry, walnuts. It's about 9 cm (3.5 inches) tall, the tickness is about 1 cm (0.4 inches)
