$89.96 $112.45




I'll convert this coin into a beautiful coin ring for you in less than a day according to your specifications.

The lira was the currency of Italy between 1861 and 2001 and of the Albanian Kingdom between 1941 and 1943. Between 1999 and 2002, the Italian lira was officially a national subunit of the euro. However, cash payments could be made in lira only, as euro coins or notes were not yet available. The lira was also the currency of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy between 1807 and 1814. The Lira changed its face a number of times and I found the best design for a ring to be those minted from 1958-2001 when it was made from a very high percentage of Silver (.835 or 83.5%) as seen in the picture above.

Message me in your order of your options or questions...

- You choose which side of the coin faces out. Note that if you don't tell me, I will just automatically make it the way I feel is best but the "Obverse side" will display the crests of Italy all around the circumference of the ring while the "Reverse side" will show part of the L500 (on the thin cut version) or the whole L500 (on the wide cust version) along with the verbiage "ITALIANA".
- The year will be randomly selected from my inventory of 1958-2001. You can always request a specific year in that range and if I have it I'll pick it out for you but can't guarantee it'll be in stock. If it's not, I simply pick the best-looking coin in the bunch on a first come first serve basis to make the best-looking band possible. If you need a specific year, talk to me about finding one. It might cost a little more but I can probably locate it.
- Finish Options in Antiqued Patina or Mirror Polish
- Straight Wall or Domed Band
- Regular Width or Ladies Thin Cut (about a 1/4" is taken off the normal thickness of the band to make it thinner)
- Crystal-Cut Ring Box (Particularly nice if this is meant to be a gift)
- Jewelers Clear-Coat Finish if you prefer (particularly nice if you patina your ring or are skin sensitive to certain metals)
- Includes FREE Beautiful Crystal Cut Clear Case with Black Velvet Bedding!

Note: It should go without saying but just be aware that when a coin ring is made a hole from 7/16" - 1/2" will be punched dead center in the coin in order to fold the coin into a ring. As such, what ever is in that small area will be lost so when choosing a coin, be sure to look for the outer design nearest the edge of the coin and not what is in the center.

    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.
