Having a coin ring to wear is simply very cool! Coin rings are a great way to celebrate an occasion that is special to you. Making coin rings is an art to me, which I take great pride in producing stellar works of art. It is my goal to produce the highest quality coin ring possible for all my customers. Prior to purchase please familiarize yourself with the details of my FAQs and disclaimers, shipping, return policies and metal sensitivity. All items are 100% guaranteed. Thank you in advance for your business!
INFORMATION & DISCLAIMERS
All rings are hand crafted by me. I either have in inventory or have sources for any variety of U.S. and World coins, with multiple dates to choose from. You can request to ship me a coin that you own or purchase and I will make your ring out of it. Each hand-crafted ring starts with a hand-selected circulated or proof coin depending on your specific request. Using techniques mastered and developed over time, the coin is molded into a ring, while retaining the coin's unique details inside and out. The coin ring is sized, cleaned and finished prior to shipping preparation. Depending on what you order, and with exception of coin year, bandwidth, heads or tails detail out, and ring size, your ring will look similar to what is on display. I have the ability to both craft the traditional Flat Tire look or the Swedish Wrap look in any ring. With the Swedish Wrap method, I am able to make smaller ring sizes using larger coins. Remember my coin rings are made by hand with circulated coins, unless otherwise stated on the item, thus slight wear and imperfections may be noticed. This is normal and to be expected. You may request a patina or polished finish, but please keep in mind that the patina will eventually rub off in time. How fast that occurs depends on how often the ring is worn, and how active and how much you work with your hands. Each ring will come with a polished finish unless otherwise requested when ordered.
Coin rings are typically sized by the outer edge or what is called the “reeded” edge of the coin. There is always a slight taper. This is because the reeded edge of the coin is thicker than the center of the coin. The reeded edge will become one of the outer edges of the ring when finished. When the ring is measured for size, we go by the end of the ring with the smallest diameter to determine the size. This is typically the reeded edge of the coin. I really want your ring to fit comfortably, so I strongly recommend that you get professionally sized before ordering your ring. Please see the chart below for possible sizes and bandwidths.
DISCOLORATION, MEDICAL OR ALLERGIES:
Coins have a variety of metal content. It is best that you pay close attention to what a coin is made out of in consideration of your purchase. Before you purchase you should consider if you have or may have problems with discoloration, medical or allergies to the metals coins are made of. Copper and Bronze coins make some beautiful rings. Experts say that there are several metals that oxidize with your skin to give you a noticeable green ring around your finger. A ring made of copper is a common culprit; even silver and gold metals can cause discoloration. The severity of any discoloration reaction is dependent on your body chemistry, oils or acids in your skin, or chemicals you may place your hands in. Rings that have Patina applied can slow down this process, but not for long, and that’s if the Patina doesn’t cause the problem all on it’s on. The stains are harmless and can be removed with soap and water. Coins with a low copper content do not normally cause staining. Nickel is a frequent cause of allergic reactions. Many clad coins today have copper, nickel, zinc alloys mixed. There is no way to be 100% certain how you might react to a certain metal until you wear it. There are methods to prevent the discoloration, like spray on lacquers, finger nail polish, etc. This creates a barrier between your skin and the metal, so that the ring can’t turn your finger green, however it discolors and flakes off over time. When that happens, you have to reapply your solution of choice on your own. I do not deliver rings that have any of these methods applied. This would be your sole responsibility if you choose to do so.

If you purchase a ring that causes discoloration to your skin, I will not be able to accept a return. For this reason, if you know you might have a possible issue of any kind, I recommend choosing an alternate metal mix, silver or gold coin for a ring. There is only a very small percent of people that cannot wear silver or gold
GOLD COIN RINGS:
You may have a Gold coin of your own, or one can be ordered. Gold coin pricing is subject to market value of gold the day ordered. Additional time may be required to order and receive the coin, prior to the ring making process takes place.
CUSTOM ORDER LIABILITY DISCLAIMER:
I will not be liable for any loss or damage to your personal coin(s). If you choose to use a coin that you own, it is at your own risk. Damage can occasionally occur during the coin ring crafting process. However, every effort will be made to protect your personal coin during the custom ring making process, such that no damage occurs.
All of my coin rings are custom made to your specifications. I work on a first come, first serve basis. The time required is dependent on how many orders I have at the time of your order. Every effort will be made to get your custom coin ring to you as soon as possible, however please consider and allow up to a 5 - 10 business days for your item(s) to be made and shipped to you. In the event of a rush order, I can try to work with you. Please contact me first to discuss. If I need to order a special coin, additional time may be required. The amount of time it will take for your purchase to reach you depends on your location and the shipping class selected.
REFUNDS, EXCHANGES, RING SIZING DISCLAIMER:
A coin ring is custom made for you. I will do everything possible to resolve any issue, however I cannot offer a refund or exchange on something I made just for you. Your understanding is appreciated. You are responsible for providing me an accurate ring size. If I make the ring to the size you specify and it does not fit, I will offer a one-time re-sizing, one size up or down, in the first 30 days of purchase. You will be responsible for all shipping charges. Contact me before sending your ring back, so that we can discuss what is required for your ring to be sized properly. Cutting the ring is not required for re-sizing. However due to the nature of the items I sell, unless items arrive damaged or defective, I cannot accept returns for custom or personalized orders. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
It is important to be educated about making rings out of coins. A frequent question that comes up is whether it is legal to make a ring from a coin or not. It is important to know that it is not illegal to make a ring from a coin. According to the United States Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 17.33, I, as long as you are not altering the coin to commit fraud (meaning altering the coin to sell as legal tender), then it is not illegal. If you have any questions, please Google this subject and do your research in further understanding the laws.
