This ring starts out as a 1 Troy oz .999 fine silver coin straight from the mint! From there each ring is made with a slow heating and folding process that ensures as much detail as possible stays on the ring inside, and outside! After the ring is finished, it is given an antique finish to make all the lettering and design really pop. Given the nature of bending and manipulating the coin into a ring, there is always a possibility of slight imperfections as the silver is heated and formed. This just adds to the the “worn antique” look!
