Exactly what I wanted! The boyfriend (now fiancee) loves it. Good workmanship, size spacer is barely noticeable. Fits like a dream thanks to the suggestion to size up. Great work! Thanks very much. :)
Ever since childhood, I have always loved creating jewelry and art, and now after spending years making eclectic pieces for my family and friends, I have decided to open my own Etsy store and share my passion with everyone!
All my pieces are hand-made by me, right here in my workshop in Chatsworth, CA. My business is a family affair, as my wife and son are also involved in production and the design aspect, whenever they are not getting into mischief! :)
I hope you like our unique, rustic and creative jewelry! And please feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions or special requests.

5. the new ring will be hand-made and shipped within 15 business days approx.
Please make every effort to order the correct ring size, as titanium rings cannot be re-sized. We would have to make you a whole new ring if you ordered the wrong size. Please understand that each ring we make is hand-made so it takes a lot of time and effort, thus we must charge a fee to cover the cost some of the materials, if not our time.
The best way to get your correct ring size is by going to a jeweler. Because we cannot size you personally, we will make the ring in the size you provide to us. It is the customer’s responsibility to be certain of size before ordering.
**For example, wide bands 5mm & up) may require a slightly larger ring size than a thin band. There is always the possibility of slight sizing discrepancies from jeweler to jeweler and this due to a slight variance in the mandrels each jewelry uses (mandrels are manufactured by several companies, not just one).
***Stainless Steel Sizes available: 5-16 (half and quarter sizes available).
***Titanium Sizes available: 5-13 (half and quarter sizes available).
For sizes smaller than 5 – please convo us before placing your order, as there is an additional charge.
***Note on Wide Rings:
Bands 6mm and up are wider than traditional rings and fit snugger, so make sure you order the right size.
As always, we are here to answer any questions and provide our customers with great service, so please let us know how we can help.
Additional policies and FAQs
Our stainless steel rings start as a strip of material that is textured using various hand tools and formed into a circle with a hand press. The stainless steel band is closed by heating silver until it flows into the small gap. Then it is time for the final finishing and polishing, all done by hand. We do not use any CNC machines or fancy equipment - all our rings are 100% hand-made, and look like it!
Some facts about our Metals:
* Titanium is a strong metal, durable, tough metal, and it is lightweight, not heavy like Platinum or gold. Since it is so lightweight (half the weight of steel), it is very comfortable and easy to wear.
* Titanium will not bend or thin over time like traditional gold or silver rings rings and it will not tarnish
* Like most metal rings, (.i.e. gold, platinum, silver, etc.), titanium rings can be scratched with normal daily wear.
* Titanium rings can not be re-sized. Titanium is so strong that it can not be cut to make the ring bigger or smaller.
* Stainless Steel is highly durable, maintains its polish and very easy to care for.
* Stainless Steel has the luster of silver with the strength of Steel.
