About

About Us

About 14 years ago Danny was still working 10-12 hours days in a machine shop making everything from cannon parts (yes, live, working cannons) to safe parts.
I was working full time being a mom to our three great kids, but also missing being a part of the work force of life outside my home.

One day a local jeweler came into the machine shop where Danny worked requesting a titanium ring.
Danny was assigned the job of creating that ring.
The whole idea of titanium rings peaked Dan's interest enough that he brought one home to me to 'see what I thought about it'. Honestly I wasn't sure what to think at that point (I'd grown up thinking rings were supposed to be gold, silver, or have big diamonds in them).
After many, many weeks of 'thinking about it' we decided to rent a lathe machine in the evening hours to do side work making/selling titanium rings for a bit of extra money to pay off some debt.

One day that 'side work' grew to be more time consuming than the evening hours could contain (if sleep was important, that is).
So about 12 years ago, much to the chagrin and warning advice of well-meaning family and friends, Danny quit his job at the machine shop and we bought our own CNC Lathe (and eventually a second one) to venture out on our own in business.

Thank you to all of our amazing customers these past 14 years!!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: You will most likely be subject duties/taxes (the terms may vary) upon delivery. Buyers are responsible for any duties/import taxes that may apply. Those fees are not connected with us but are regulated/received by your government. We are not responsible for delays due to customs.
As required by US law, we will not mark your purchase as a 'gift' nor will we misrepresent purchase price on customs forms for international shipments.
Please do not ask us to bend this rule.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Our rings ship in just a drawstring organza ring bag in a bubble lined manilla mailer.
And yes, there will be a wadded up piece of notebook paper in the bottom of the envelope to thicken the package for shipping. We have found that that 'tacky' wad of paper is best at keeping your package from being sent through package-destroying post office machinery.

We do not have/include a written warranty, authenticity certification, stamping on the inside of the ring, or a gift/ring box.
Refunds and Exchanges
Titanium rings are cut from a solid bar of titanium (they are not cast like traditional metal rings). Your ring cannot be re-sized in the traditional way by a jeweler.
Because your ring cannot be re-sized, we do have a one time 14-day exchange policy in the event your ring does not fit. Because our rings are custom made to order at the size/width you request, we do not offer ANY return for refund or credit policy. If a return for refund option is important for you please consider your purchase with us very carefully. We make every attempt to be as clear as possible with our policies, so please do not ask for exceptions after the fact.

SIZING:
One of the drawbacks to online sales is that we cannot size you personally using our sizing tools and there can always be slight sizing discrepancies from jeweler to jeweler. No ring mandrel or sizing tool is going to be 100% uniform from one jeweler to another.

Our sizing is set to industry standard based on the requirements of the retail jeweler accounts (wholesale) that we have worked with for years.
We check sizing on a mandrel and with digital calipers based on the center of the band (where the comfort fit arc peaks and rests against the finger) not the bottom edge of the ring.
We can only guarantee to make the size you request based on OUR sizing tools here. We have become extremely cautious over the years about double and triple checking sizing using our mandrels and digital calipers before shipping out any ring we make.
We cannot guarantee the size you request will be a perfect fit for you or that the style you choose will be a perfect look for you.

We discourage the use of online printable ring sizers, sizing charts, computer screen sizing systems, string or tape measures to determine ring sizes.
We find that the safest option is to you have your size checked at a reputable jeweler local to you or to use a quality ring sizer kit.
Again, regardless of where, how, or even how many times you are sized, because we cannot size you personally, we cannot 100% guarantee the fit of the size you request.

EXCHANGE POLICY:
*available only for 14 days after receipt of ring
*ring must be in new, unworn condition upon return for exchange
*one exchange per ring purchased only
*exchange must be for ring style of equal value to original purchase (ie: you cannot exchange a gold inlay style ring for a less expensive style and get a credit or refund of the difference and you cannot exchange a titanium only ring for a gold inlay style at just the exchange fee cost)
*exchange fee involved as a new ring will be made when exchange is requested
*clearance priced rings are not eligible for exchange
**Personalized engraving voids the exchange policy.

EXCHANGE POLICY PROCEDURE:
*Email or convo to let us know you are requesting an exchange. We will reply with all detailed return shipping/payment information then.

Return the ring(s) to be exchanged with the exchange fee via MONEY ORDER ONLY (payable to Daniel or Amy Walker).
Please return in appropriate packaging (ie: PLEASE no regular flat letter envelopes that have no padding or security - odds are the ring won't make it back to us when shipped that way and the exchange will become void).
**EXCHANGE FEE INFORMATION:
*35% of the original purchase price on all titanium or titanium with silver inlay rings for US customers.
*35% of the original purchase price on all titanium or titanium with silver inlay rings + $10 return shipping cost for international customers.
*50% of the original purchase price on all titanium rings with gold (yellow, rose or white gold) for US customers.
*50% of the original purchase price on all titanium rings with gold (yellow, rose or white gold) + $25 return shipping cost for international customers.

We obviously do re-sell the exchanged rings for a reduced clearance price here in our shop.
We offer an exchange policy as a courtesy to our customers at a very reasonable rate rather than using an all sales final approach given the rings are made to order. Re-selling the exchanged ring helps us re-coup some cost of a cutting a new ring on exchange at the exchange fee rate.
Please be considerate in understanding that we are running a business and there is time and expense involved in all we do.

Additional policies and FAQs
RING FINISHES: (NOTE: A photo of all finishes side by side is located on our About Us page)
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
The good news: titanium is a strong metal.
It should not bend or thin over time like traditional metal rings, it is tough. It will not tarnish or turn your finger colors.
The bad news: the finish is NOT scratch-proof.
Often buyers think that because titanium is a strong metal that the finish is also resistant to scratching. This is just not the case.
Your ring will get scratching readily and in some cases prominently with just normal daily wear. Eventually, over time all finishes can smooth to a natural matte titanium patina.
We do not feel the scratching to titanium is any different than you would get with any other type of ring. We just want to dispel the common misconception that because titanium is a strong metal, that means scratch proof finish.
We know that titanium is not for everyone, so please be sure to make an informed decision prior to purchase.

SATIN: a very light textured finish (somewhat of a satin sheen or shine to the finished look)

BRUSHED: a medium textured finish

STONE: a slightly rougher (but not rough to the touch) textured finish

FROSTED: a unique, luminescent textured finish that gives the titanium a slightly more shimmery appearance and a bit of sparkle or bling (one of the better finishes at holding up to daily wear).
IMPORTANT NOTE: The frosted finish is still gray, it is not a 'white' finish and the luminescent sparkle is most prominent in the direct light/sunlight, on the flat profile bands and wider rings. Please be reasonable in your expectations.

POLISHED: smooth - mirror like. The polished finish is easiest to touch up at home using a mag wheel polish (available at automotive stores) and any buffing cloth from time to time

SANDBLASTED: just as the name implies, a blast of sand is applied to the ring giving it a slightly darker or muddier gray with a unique texture and look. Sandblasted finish is not a heavy or gritty texture, it is not black nor overly 'dark' and it is more of a matte finish.
Sandblasting is prone to surface scratching that can show almost immediately with daily wear. The surface scratching does not wear off the sandblasting (unless you are really rough with the ring, ie: rock climbing or heavy labor occupations), more smooths it.
IMPORTANT:
**We do change out the sand in the sandblasting machine periodically.
For this reason, your ring may not look EXACTLY like the sandblasting in the photo shown because the texture can vary slightly based on the grit or age of the sand being used at any given time.
We are not able to adjust photos every time we change the sand being used, so if you have any questions regarding this finish, PLEASE let us know before you order.
BURNISHED: Gives the ring a slightly bumpy textured look with a bit of a sheen. DURABLE finish that holds up the absolute best of any of our finishes to daily wear, seriously, this finish is tough. Burnished finish is available on limited styles. We are not able to offer the burnished finish on any of our inlay ring styles - the burnishing process is a bit too rough on the softer inlay metals - sorry!

RAW: Currently the raw finish is only available on one style - our ground profile ring (ax118). Raw means that the only finish given the ring is a sanding/smoothing of the edges for comfort and an inside polished finish.

GOLD/SILVER/COPPER INLAY RING STYLES: We are not able to offer the all polished or all burnished finish on any of our inlay ring styles.
We find that the inlay metal for our gold inlay rings can vary a bit in color and intensity from batch to batch. White gold will still have a yellowish hue to it. Rose gold more of a copper hue. Inlays are solid gold, copper or sterling silver, not plated.
If you have any questions about inlays, please ask before you purchase.

IMPORTANT! The silver, gold and copper inlay metals on your ring are going to be softer and more susceptible to wear than the stronger titanium. Please keep this in mind and avoid, when possible, wearing your inlay ring while doing heavy work or activities.

Sterling silver inlay rings: The silver inlay in your ring can tarnish. Keep it wrapped in the anti-tarnish tissue paper squares and airtight baggie if the ring is going to sit unworn for an extended period of time.
Please do not wear your silver inlay ring when swimming in a chlorinated pool or when using bleach products.

Copper inlay rings: We are just going to be honest here, copper is a new metal for us (in regards to our working with it or knowing how it will patina or wear over time), but we were getting so many requests to incorporate copper into our inlay style offerings we wanted to start making it available asap. It is possible that copper can interact with your skin and leave a green mark, it will really just vary from person to person. It is also possible that it may oxidize/patina over time to a green hue. Similar to sterling silver, we do not recommend wearing your copper inlay ring in a chlorinated pool or when using bleach products. We recommend keeping your copper inlay ring stored in an airtight baggie when it will be unworn for an extended period of time.

Please note that lighting and your computer screen can cause variations in the look of the finishes in the photos. Titanium is one standard gray color and all finishes remain the same from style to style (ie: there is no 'darker or lighter' sandblasted finish and we do not have lighter or darker titanium bar that we use).
We can send a photo of all ring finishes side by side if you would like, just let us know.

Titanium is GRAY.
Titanium is not a color match to silver, white gold, or platinum nor is titanium a truly gun metal gray.

All of our rings are cut at an APPROX. thickness of 2mm. That thickness will vary up or down a bit based on the style/cut of the ring and the width chosen. We are not able to list the exact thickness of every style ring, so we list 2mm thickness as an approximation so you understand that your ring will not be a thin ring that lays flat against your finger.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PHOTOS:
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Regarding our photos, please note that we take our own photos and do the best we can with lighting and setup.

There can be variations due to lighting and color/look can vary from monitor to monitor. Please be aware that our photos are taken at close range with a macro focus in natural sunlight here in our home or outside so that you can best see the details of the cut of the ring.
We do not alter the actual look of the ring for the pictures in any way. We do not use a white box. We do not photoshop or use photos software to alter our pictures. They are listed as they are taken.
PLEASE be reasonable in your expectations and please ask any questions you may have prior to purchase.

Keep in mind that the ring pictured on the listing is a stock photo. It is pictured in a size that is likely not going to be the same size as the ring you order and sizing up and down does affect the overall look of the ring. Also, the ring will look different if you order your ring made in a width other than the one pictured.

I EXPECTED A HEAVY RING, WHY IS THIS SO LIGHTWEIGHT?
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
That is one of the benefits of titanium for jewelry. It is a durable metal, but it is comfortable and lightweight to wear.
Do not expect to receive a heavy ring.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

We would never intentionally send the wrong ring/ring size or a ring that was flawed in anyway.
We always strive for the best quality, customer service and care.
With that said, we are human, we do have a family and things are busy, busy, busy here most days. We can and do make mistakes from time to time.
If you are not satisfied, PLEASE contact us and we will work with you to make sure you are happy.
We would not and do not ignore our customers.
Please, give us the courtesy of contacting us with any concerns first. Negative or derogatory feedback meant to get our attention or lash out...well it is just not nice, that is all we will say.

Seller (Danny and Amy Walker) maintains that it is the responsibility/liability of the purchaser to have researched titanium properties prior to purchase.
Seller also maintains that the buyer accepts all responsibility/liability when choosing to wear jewelry purchased from us. Seller advises purchaser to use discretion and wear rings safely (ie: not when operating heavy machinery, applicable work situations, heavy outdoor activies, etc). Purchasing with us indicates your understanding of and willingness to accept aforementioned responsibility/liability.
