this is a ring made of an old Japanese coin with a sterling silver band. The band is hand forged by myself.

the coin is authentic, it is real (not a replica) and was actually used in currency. I've always really loved these old coins that i received as change when in Japan; and never knew what to do with them... I felt the design was just beautiful like it is and I didn't want to mess it up...

the coin is the size of a nickel- us 5cent coin [.8inch /20mm] and it has a sterling silver comfort fit band/shank that bears my personal hallmark... i designed it so your finger gently peek-a-boos through the open center...

its value is 50 yen... the image is that of chrysanthemum blossoms and it bears the words:
日本国 or Nippon Koku "State of Japan" in kanji...

this ring in this photo is a USA size 7 and I'm happy to make a comfort fit band in whatever ring size you would would like... during the checkout process just let me know what size you desire.... i can do sizes in most any country's various measurement systems...
if you need any help in determining your ring size just click here for a finger ring sizer... http://www.etsy.com/listing/62498391/give-them-the-finger-ring-sizer

all of my work comes packaged in either a gift box or a small cloth drawstring pouch; just tell me your preference in the "note to seller" during the checkout process...

i have tried to take photos at differing angles and lighting conditions in order to most accurately represent this piece; however if you would like to see other images or if you have any further questions please feel free to contact me

i care about where I live so all my precious metals are made from certified 100% recycled material...

thanks for your interest in my work... i appreciate it very much...
