This very masculine ring makes a wonderful wedding band for men that work with their hands and want a heavy unique wedding band. Individually distressed by using unique hand tools such as files, bolts, nuts, etc. gives a unique pattern to each ring. This hand forged sterling silver ring makes a wonderful wedding band for the person that likes life unique and organic.

A wonderful quality about this ring for those that work with their hands and are rough on rings is that wear and tear will only add your personal stamp on this ring. They are made so any additional "dings" will blend right in. This is a very heavy duty ring so it should hold up better than many rings to rough physical handling. Even so, some chemicals can be hard on any ring so be careful about which chemicals it is exposed to. Soap and even mild ammonia is OK, but others such chlorine is NOT OK. It is best not to wear any ring in a swimming pool or a hot tub.

This is a one-of-a-kind ring and the one pictured is sold, but I can make similar rings in many sizes. For very thick (8mm wide by 2mm thick) rings like the one pictured above I can only make them in larger sizes, but I can make thinner versions in smaller sizes. Contact me and we can design the ring of your dreams.

Even though these are one-of-a-kind rings. I can make wedding bands that go together. I can make similar rings but in different widths and/or thicknesses and in both copper and sterling silver. Contact me if you want rings that have similar patterns but in different widths and materials. I will make a custom listing for you.

Be aware that this is a very wide and thick ring and it may be necessary to order it in a larger size than you wear in a thin band. You may need it to be up to a whole size larger than your normal size. Please read about getting your correct ring size below.

RING SIZES
To determine the size for your new ring there are several things to consider.
Your ring size will vary due to hydration, time of day, time of year and even the width of the ring itself. So a ring that fits at noon in the summer after a hard workout may be too large in the winter when you go to bed. Even the width of the ring will make a difference in the size you want to wear.
Some rings cannot be resized easily or at all due to the decorative patterns or stones used. It is best to get your correct ring size the first time.
***Do not use an online ring sizer or paper strip. These are unreliable and will not help you determine an accurate ring size***

Determine your ring size by following the steps below:

1. Visit at least two jewelery stores, preferably at different times of the day.
You may need to visit more than two, but the goal is to find two jewelers who both agree on your size. Many jewelry shops have a ring mandrel they measure rings on. It is important that the ring size mandrel being used is accurate. These can be off as much as ¾ of a size and are usually off about 1/8 of a size. My ring mandrels are not accurate as marked from the manufacturer so I measure the actual size by measuring the inside diameter of the ring itself using millimeter calipers. You can also try on metal or plastic finger gauge rings in set sizes, but these can be off slightly also. You can also ask them to use a “caliper” or “micrometer” to measure. Probably the most accurate measurement to provide to your jeweler is the inside diameter of the ring in millimeters. If you have an existing ring in the same width and fit as the one you are planning to buy and it is perfectly round, ask the jewelers to measure the inside diameter of this ring. That way you will know exactly what size to order your new ring in.
2. Determine The Ring Width You Want.
The ring size that is comfortable on your finger can vary depending on the width of the ring. It would be best to try on rings in the width of the ring you want to buy to get the most accurate measurement. A wider ring may need to be up to a half or full size larger than a very narrow ring to feel comfortable on your finger. Most plastic ring gauges come only up to 3.5mm wide. If you purchase a ring 8mm wide, your ring size will probably increase by a quarter size from the ring gauge that fit you best.

How should your ring fit?
The best fitting ring is the one you don’t know is there unless you see it.
But depending on several factors there will be days or seasons when rings are too tight, and days or seasons when they’re a little loose. Your fingers fluctuate in size during the day due to temperature, humidity, diet, etc. The time of year can also contribute to the ring not fitting comfortably. You may notice it feeling tighter in summer months and looser in winter months. In the winter, try and keep your hands warm while sizing to ensure it will fit in the summer. Even so it is better to have a ring that is loose in the winter rather than one you cannot remove in the summer.
The best fit is when a ring fits easily over your knuckle. You should be able to get it on without struggle and then have a slight pull at the knuckle when removing it. You may need to twist the ring 1-2 times to get it off. Proper sizing is a personal preference.

Some other tips on getting the best size ring for your finger:
Your finger shape can determine the size you want also. Some fingers are largest near your palm and gradually taper without a large knuckle. In this case the ring should fit snugly at the base of the finger without causing bulges or a permanent indentation. You should be able to push the ring up from the underside of your finger, and see a small space between the ring and the top of the finger as this gives your finger some breathing room.
If your knuckles are large you need the size of the ring to fit comfortably over the knuckle without being too large for the base of the finger. If there is a large size difference between the knuckle and base of the finger, the ring tends to spin and turn on the hand, especially in single stone rings which are often top heavy. You need to decide how easy you want it to slip over your knuckle.

I purchased two rings from this shop and I'm in love with both of them. The highlighted option is beautiful and I love the way the contrast shows off the texture. Super quick shipping as well. Thank you so much, they're perfect!

I purchased two rings from this shop and I'm in love with both of them. The shiny option is so pretty and I love the way it catches the light while still showing off the texture. Super quick shipping as well. Thank you so much, they're perfect!

This ring is absolutely beautiful! It looks better than the photos. I cannot recommend it more. The seller was fabulous as well. I originally ordered the ring months ago but canceled before it got shipped. I was refunded my money in full very quickly. I then decided to order it again, and received the ring within record timing. My husband and I are so greatful.

Even prettier to me in person. I love it and the 2 simple but elegant stack rings go quite well along side.
