RARE 1955-56 Egyptian 25 Qirsh Commemorative Piastres Coin Ring, 9.5-10mm wide, .720 Silver, Anniversary, Birthday, Heritage, Fashion Ring.

$169.96 $199.95

This ring converted from real Egyptian currency displays a beautiful "Uraeus Winged Sun of Thebes" (winged sun god with cobras). (from Egyptian Mythology and Egyptian Christianity by Samuel Sharpe, 1863) The winged sun is a symbol associated with divinity, royalty and power in the Ancient Near East (Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Persia).

Not only is it silver but this is a very rare coin and because of its scarcity there are a ton of fakes circulating out there. Typically 3 out of 4 coins ordered turn out to be fake which is really hard to detect until I've actually punched a hole in the center to turn it inside out. If it's real silver it'll come out perfect but the 75% of the time I find it's made of Zinc Alloy when it splits in half making this ring all the more expensive for me to make. If you purchase this ring I assure you it is 100% real and not a fake but the scarcity of finding this coin is what puts it on the pricey side however if you're the type who can appreciate having a really rare authentic coin converted especially for those wanting to where something of heritage, then this is an extremely popular ring to have!

Expect the ring to end up being approx 9.5-10mm wide. You do have the choice to round off the top reeded section of the ring to match the opposite side or leave the reading on to clearly see it was once a coin (your choice) but let me know before I start which you prefer if you do have a preference otherwise I'll just finish it however that particular coin looks best at the time of forging according to your ring size.

This ring now comes with our very best "Hyposealer Powder Coating" guaranteed to prevent finger staining and preserve the finish of the ring FREE of charge (REG. $99 VALUE). and comes with a 3-Year Guarantee (read more here www.tinyurl.com/hyposealer ).

After being asked to task the job of finding the best Egyptian coin possible to convert into a coin ring I found this beautiful Egyptian 25 Qirsh Piastres (1376) 1955, 1956 or 1967 .720 Silver coin. What really stood out for me was the popular Egyptian Sun Wings and Cobras as popular as the scarab in the Egyptian culture, this was a massive part of Egyptian art history. Just as nice I found it came in the perfect size of 35mm in diameter and 17.5g of .720 Silver weight meaning it wasn't too heavy and yet not super thin or too light either.

When ordering, be sure to note that the photos above are of the wide cut with a three tone silver and antique patina finish then the sun wings plated in 24k Gold and given another layer of antiquing (a very difficult process to do both) - do not confuse this with silver and gold only which has the absence of the antique patina (dark outlines) which is also available.

In addition to the rings photographed above, you'll find many options to choose from such as...
- Antique Patina (silver with the antique black oxidization)
- Precious Metals: 24k Gold, 999 Silver, Platinum, Rose Gold, White Gold, Rhodium and more!
- There is also a silver and gold two precious metal combo or the most popular one being a three tone ring in Antique Patina, 24k Gold and Silver! Hyposealer Powder Coat Protectant $99 Value is included FREE!
- If you want the same exact finish as you see in the photos above, be sure to ask if you aren't positive which option to choose.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you ship anywhere in the World?

    Yes, excluding Russia and certain regions of Africa at this time.

    Custom and personalized orders

    I LOVE MAKING CUSTOMIZED RINGS! Yes, we "specialize" in making nearly any kind of ring according to our customer's specifications. Simply message me here and I'll provide a quote based on the requirements of your custom-designed ring(s).

    Care instructions

    While there are some very tough rings that can put up with a lot of abuse like Titanium or Tungsten, all jewelry regardless of price requires some common sense TLC and in most cases it should be a habit to remove your ring prior to taking a shower, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer or lotion, swimming or while working that requires heavy hand to machinery contact or anything that would simply be abrasive. If you have any concerns, simply ask about your specific ring and ask about our hyposealer which is an additional protective coating that can be applied to help protect and prevent oxydation.

    Sizing details

    Because I actually hand make these rings myself, I can often offer them in all sizes including extremely small to very large ie. US Sizes 1-25 and as fine-tuned as much as a quarter of a size on most rings. If you don't see the size you require, please message me. I often can still do it for you!

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    Yes, all rings $40 or more automatically are shipped in a beautiful ring box FREE OF CHARGE!
    If you need a ring box for something less expensive, just let me know and I'll still do it for free 😍

    Wholesale availability

    If you are looking to buy rings, services or our precious metal plating in bulk, contact me before making your purchase, and let's discuss what you have. In many cases, I do offer discounted pricing to customers with bulk item requests.

    Do you give Military Discounts?

    Yes, anyone with an honorable discharge DD214 or active duty card as well as any first responders (firefighters, officers, medical field) that can provide proof (ie. an ID with the same name as the person purchasing the item) will receive 15% OFF the regular price. If an item is already on sale, I don't consolidate discounts and coupons so we would just look for the discount that gives you the largest savings and I thank you for your service!

    How to proceed with Gold Plating Services (or other precious metals)

    The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry). The very first thing is to contact me direct and provide a photo(s) preferably next to a dollar bill for size comparison. I don't charge my customers until "AFTER" the job is completed so PAY NOTHING UPFRONT! Simply contact me for my address, instructions and a quote.

    Do you plate anything other than rings?

    Yes, all the time! In fact, other than all kinds of costume jewelry, antiques, and more I'm contracted by many companies for all kinds of crazy things like drone parts, car parts, emblems, medallions, electronic parts, and so much more! Our Gold plating services extend far beyond just rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, and pendants. Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating. Message me here and let's just chat a bit about what you have and get you a custom quote today. I typically answer in just a matter of a couple of hours in most cases.
