This ring is very masculine. It makes a wonderful wedding band for men that work with their hands and want a heavy unique wedding band. This will be a one-of-a-kind ring made from a unique strip of metal I individually distressed by using hand tools such as files, bolts, nuts, etc in an unusual way. This gives a unique pattern to each ring. This hand forged copper ring makes a wonderful wedding band for the person that likes life rustic and rugged.

A wonderful quality about this organic 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 handling.

I can make similar style unique bands in both sterling silver and copper. See my links below for sterling silver unique hand forged rings.

MATERIAL SIZE
band width is around 9.5mm wide and 1.7mm thick

RING SIZES
I can do any size from a US size 7 to a US size 16, in both half sizes and quarter sizes. If you want a size not listed please contact me to discuss making one in your size.

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.

READY TO SHIP - none are ready to ship, but I have the unique copper strips pictured above ready to make into your size.

Since I do not have any rings already made, I can make the unique copper strips pictured above into rings in your size. You can order the hand forged pattern made into your own unique ring. I can also make new patterns or I can also make custom rings similar in character but in thinner material and smaller sizes. Contact me for more information.

In picture #3 you can see how one of the strips looks after being bent into a ring. The ring pictured there is not finished yet and can be made into your size. The other pictures show the strips I currently have available to make into your own unique ring. I have 5 pieces ready for rings and have numbered and named them in the pictures. The last picture shows what can be done with sterling silver. That listing can be visited here:

I can make the copper rings in a shiny copper with no wax finish or I can patina the ring and highlight the pattern and wax the ring.
Being made of copper, the surface changes color as it develops an aged patina. The pictures above show how a patina and waxed ring may look when you receive it. (The patina on the strips will be redone after the rings are finished as making the rings destroys any patina) Your ring patina will not necessarily stay the same because the patina color depends on your skin chemistry. I have worn a copper ring to test out copper as a metal for jewelry and mine stayed a clean pink copper color. Your chemistry may be different and cause your ring to turn darker. Copper may cause some people to develop a dark band or greenish area on their finger, which is not harmful.

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.

***Do not use paper tools off the internet.
Copper and brass turn some people's fingers green or black. This is not harmful. It is a reaction between your personal skin chemistry and the metal. It happens mostly with copper or copper alloys, but some people have this reaction with other metals. Other people, like me, have a chemistry which removes the oxidation from copper and turns oxidized copper rings back to the pinker unoxidized copper look.
To see if this may happen to you before you order a copper or brass ring, you could just wrap a bare copper wire around your finger for a day or two. It usually happens fairly quickly. Again it is just a discoloration of the skin and is not harmful. It is different than an allergic reaction.
