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. Please also indicate the occasion and date of the occasion 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, we highly recommend you have your finger sized by at least two different reputable jewelers in your area. Please be sure to tell the jewelers the ring is 'standard fit', and what 'width' your ring will be. We can craft your ring to be 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 size increments to get an exact fit. If resizing is needed, we can resize your ring for a $30 resizing fee. Keep in mind, it is much better for us to resize your ring later on to be a larger size, rather than a smaller size for several reasons.
Please allow us 6-8 weeks to handcraft your ring order during the months of November – April. However, as wedding season picks up, please allow us 10-12 weeks to handcraft your ring order during the months of May – October. Also, feel free to Convo me if you need your ring order faster, as rush order service may be possible, although a fee will apply.
More about this ring:
This handmade wedding band is made of .999 fine silver and copper and brass. The part that touches your finger is fine silver, while the inner portion is copper and brass; since copper and brass are harder metals than fine silver, it makes the ring very strong and ensures the shape of the ring always remains intact. This ring is durable!
This ring was hammered to make it look more organic which gives it a lot more of that rustic and raw character. The ring was then hand textured, oxidized, sanded and polished to give it that antiqued finish. The copper and brass portion of the ring was treated with a high-quality antiquing wax, in order to keep the original look of the ring for a longer period of time. This also keeps the copper and brass from oxidizing to a more brown shade as quickly.
Please note, for any ring that has darker oxidation on it, oxidation levels and texture markings may vary from one ring to the next since it is handmade. Also note, the dark oxidation finish will eventually wear off completely, making the ring the natural color of the metals. If you ever want your ring refinished, we can do so for a $35 refinishing fee.
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.
