I love the symbolism of the Möbius band in a wedding ring: the two sides of the metal turning into one seems to me to be a metaphor for marriage in many ways.

This is a member of a series of Möbius bands I am creating. Its pure simplicity accents the symbolism of the ring design.

The picture shows a ring made of Sterling Silver, with 3% of the usual copper replaced with Palladium- a platinum family metal. This makes the ring denser, and slightly more gray in tone. For more information about the metal options possible, please read about metal choices here: http://www.afmetalsmith.com/contents/learn.html ; I am happy to make this style of ring in any of a number of metals.

This is the ring that appeared briefly in the season finale of the TV show "Numb3rs," as an engagement ring. That ring does have a gemstone as well. I was thrilled that they chose one of my rings to be used as such a significant plot element!

For this band I start with heavy wire and forge it to a flat shape. I leave it fairly heavy since I want some mass to accent the twist. The cross section is rectangular with rounded ends, which looks more graceful and wears better than a hard-edged shape.

I can make this style of ring in a number of metals, including sterling, Argentium sterling, sterling with 3% palladium as in this one, palladium, 14k palladium white gold, 14k nickel white gold, and several yellow gold alloys. For more information about various metals, including pictures of them, please follow this link: http://www.afmetalsmith.com/contents/learn.html

The color of the sterling/palladium is definitely whiter than the palladium and its alloys, though not as white as sterling or Argentium sterling silver; still, it is very similar to the color of any metal that's been rhodium plated, and will hold up to wear without such plating. Silver, being less dense than palladium and gold alloys, does not hold up as well in constant wear as do palladium and gold, but this alloy is somewhat more dense than other sterling alloys.

The final polish is a very high-shine finish.

This particular ring is a size 6.5 US. The price listed is for this particular ring (which was a prototype for rings using this alloy). Rings made to order based on this design will be priced reflecting the current metals prices and work required.
