How to order:
If you want a handcrafted ring in this design, simply select your size and width or leave this information in the "note to seller" at the time of purchase. If you want more than one ring in this style, please convo me, and I will create a link for you to purchase.
Want to add custom hand stamping to your ring order? Simply purchase the link below in addition to this ring order. If you are purchasing two rings, be sure to select 2 for the quantity when purchasing the stamping, if you want both rings to be hand stamped. Please note, the ring must be 7mm wide or wider in order to include hand stamping.
Tips on sizing:
For accurate sizing, I highly recommend you have your finger sized by two reputable jewelers in your area. If the ring you are interested in is 7mm wide or wider, have the jeweler use a 'wide band' ring sizer, and let them know what width you are interested in. If resizing is needed, I can resize for you for a 30 dollar resizing fee.
Please allow me 6-8 weeks to handcraft your ring order during the months of October – April. However, as wedding season picks up, please allow me 10-12 weeks to handcraft your ring order during the months of May – September. Also, free to Convo me if you need your ring order faster, as rush order service may be possible, although a fee will apply.
I personally make these rings 100% from scratch, and no casting or mass producing is involved. For any ring that has darker oxidation on it, please note that oxidation levels and texture markings may vary from one ring to the next since it is handmade. Your ring will be 100% unique! :-)
More about this ring:
This handmade wide band wedding ring is made of .999 fine silver and .925 sterling silver. The outer portion (part that touches your finger and wraps around) is made of fine silver. The inner portion is made of sterling silver since sterling silver is a harder metal than fine silver (it makes the ring very strong and ensures the shape of the ring always remains intact). This ring is thick!
I hammered this ring to make it look more organic which gives it a lot more of that rustic and raw character. The ring was then sanded, oxidized and polished to give it that antiqued look. As the oxidation wears the shiny silver will show through in parts and become even more antique looking. Please note, the dark oxidation on the silver will eventually completely wear away, and the ring will be all silver color.

Added note about silver: The difference between "fine" silver and "sterling" silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is only 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% being composed of other metals, usually copper. They look the same, wear & polish the same, but fine silver is more "pure" and is, therefore, more costly and often considered more desirable than sterling.
