This is an add-on service which can be purchased to engrave your own ring which can be mailed to me or to engrave a ring you've purchased here on ETSY from my shop either way. Note that this is for one side of your ring only (Inside or Outside) so if you would like engraving on both sides, kindly purchase this item as (Quantity 2 - one purchase per side).
Some metals, colors and/or the finish of a ring all require different types of hand engraving, laser engraving or deep etching which is why you'll find a variation in pricing. Tungsten for instance is the hardest material made and in a Silver color very difficult to make out unless laser or deep etched thus more expensive than Stainless Steel in Black which is easily created and seen making it the least expensive.
Simply pick the style (font) and band color of your ring in the drop-down-edit boxes to the right and you'll find the cost to personalize your ring with a beautiful memory whether it be the date of your anniversary, birth date, in memory of date, your name, pet name or just a cute funny saying whether it be serious or comedy.
As for how many characters you can have will depend on the width of your ring and and band size. Remember that the less their is, the more bold and clear your engraving will be. The more you try to fit in, the smaller the font and thinner the etching will be and can result in a very difficult to read engraving so I recommend following the rule below...
Maximum Character amount not only includes letters or numbers, but also spaces, dashes, commas, hyphens, and symbols plus you should have at least 3 spaces at the end of your engraving so your sentence doesn't run together. These are ideal numbers to consider below.
8mm Bands US Ring Size 3-7 : Max Characters 10
8mm Bands US Ring Size 8-10 : Max Characters 16
8mm Bands US Ring Size 10-12 : Max Characters 20
8mm Bands US Ring Size 13-16 : Max Characters 25
If you have a wider band you could consider going BOLD or if you go thinner (ie. 6mm bands) just know the font will be smaller.
HOW TO PROVIDE THE TEXT TO ENGRAVE?
Simple, after placing your order here as you check out you'll see an area to leave notes about this order. Just leave exactly what you would like to see and if I see any issues with it that I think it would come out anything less than perfect for you, I'll be sure to let you know. You may also message me here on ETSY anytime if you have any questions.
ARE THERE SPECIAL FONTS AND SYMBOLS TO CHOOSE FROM?
Yes but to be clear, I have to send my rings out as my machine only does the basic Italic and Arial fonts. If you want a different font or character (see images above in the photos section), be sure to choose your ring metal and color with the *asterisk next to it. I make nearly nothing on this service and it's only done as a courtesy to my customers. The normal price when I send it out (I use Jared Jewelers) is around $75 on average but because I bring them so much work, I get a nice discount and just pass that on to you, my client. Note on Tungsten Steel only Arial, Times New Roman or Cross Hatch (bold) are available.
COIN RING ENGRAVINGS:
Coin Ring Engravings are available to certain types of coins so be sure to message me to see if it can be done before purchasing this service.
I normally have a very liberal and easy return policy on everything but in this case, once you have engraved a ring I can not take it back if you decide at a later time you don't want the ring as it has been personalized and not resellable. The same is true if you make a mistake in your sizing of the ring. If you for example request a size 8 but realize after you get it you need a size 10 and it's made from a material such as Tungsten, Titanium or something made with an inlay that is impossible for me to resize, personalizing your ring voids the possibility of returning it for the same reason. I know, this is pretty much common sense but wanted to make sure everyone understands this so my best advice is to make certain you are certain of the size ring you order when engraving a ring that can't be stretched or reduced in size itself.
Don't be shy, message, call or text me.

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).
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.
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!
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 😍
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.
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!
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.
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.

This ring is amazing! It is beautiful and I can’t say enough good things about my interactions with this seller. He was polite, kind, thoughtful, and responded quickly. The ring I purchased is for my future husband‘s wedding band. I had a different one picked out for him, but didn’t feel positive about giving it. I will be proud to put this ring on his finger! Thank you.
