About

History At Your Fingertips

My name is John. I have been making jewelry in true artisan fashion since mid 2007. I was taught by a WWII vet that I had met when my Mom was battling breast cancer. I used the skills I learned to bring in an additional income so that I could help support my Mom during her financially hard time. After my Mom passed, I decided to continue creating and donate to those in need as I knew that is what she would have wanted. I am considered a master of the craft and create some of the best pieces on the market. I truly love what I do and the smiles it brings to people.

    I love creating something from nothing or taking something and creating something better with it.

Frequently asked questions
Resizing/Sizing

I suggest having your fingers professionally sized prior to placing your order. I use professional jeweler tools so there are no mistakes. All rings come with lifetime resizing, 1 size up or down (only if within sizing range) FREE. All you are responsible for is shipping to and from my shop.

Packaging/Care instructions

We gently tuck your item into a tin clear top gift box ready to be gifted as soon as your package is opened. Your purchase also includes care instructions that will provide you with the details to help make your items last a lifetime. For ring purchases, a Buckskin polishing cloth is also included so you can keep that vibrant shine with just a gentle wipe.

What makes coin rings different than traditional bands in regards to shape and fit?

Due to the process of turning a coin into a ring a taper or cone shape will be present. The reeded edge or factory edge as I call it is much thicker than the center of the coin, which once punched and folded, the center becomes one side of the band. You cant ever remove the taper fully. However, you can shape the ring so that the taper is hidden within the inner band. I size my rings using the reeded edge then slowly raise the thinner center edge so that the taper is now on the inner band and once placed on your finger, the taper is completely hidden. The taper can be seen only if you are looking from the punched center edge towards the reeded edge, otherwise it is hidden. This causes one side of the ring to be a bit larger than the other

Order Processing Times and Shipping

All orders will take 1-4 weeks to create once your order is placed. Please keep this in mind and plan your orders accordingly if it needs to arrive by a certain date. We always do our best to process orders as quickly as possible and if we can lessen this time, we do.

All U.S. packages are sent USPS First Class as my standard shipping method. However, faster services are offered such as USPS Priority at additional costs.

All International packages are sent USPS First Class International as my standard shipping method. However, faster services are offered at additional costs.
