1998-2017 Guatemala 1 Quetzal Coin Ring (Heritage Ring made from authentic coin) Antique Brass / Bronze Finish w/ Free Jewelers Clear Coat.

$80.36 $100.45

Shipped in a beautiful Black Velvet ring case!

The Un Quetzal coin of Guatemala minted from 1998-2017 was created to celebrate the end of civil war on December 29, 1996. Stylized peace dove, with the word Paz autographed on the reverse side meaning "Peace" or "Strong and lasting Peace" was created from nickel and brass. The size is perfect for converting into a beautiful coin ring and the brass when antiqued gives a beautiful antiqued look however looks elegant without the antique process of patina as well if you would prefer a straight clean look.

I craft the coin inside out so there is full detail of both obverse and reverse sides of the coin still intact as it was minted, round off the cut side for a comfortable smooth fit and you have the option to request either a straight wall or domed wall look (the photos show the straight wall in antique patina finish).

Are you sensitive to metals? Don't worry, I protect all my rings with a jewelers clear coat sealer to help prevent any contact between your skin and metal that may otherwise cause discoloration in some individuals and if you are in fact skin allergic, be sure to ask about my hypoallergenic solution which is an add-on to protect your ring and keep it looking incredible for years to come while protecting your skin from ever coming in contact with the metal guaranteed!

What's more, you get to choose the year you would prefer to memorialize a birth year, anniversary, year the first time you met, graduation year, year of a loved ones passing or birth, and so many other "personal meanings" the year itself alone could represent or just choose random for the most affordable choice if you have no preference.

    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.

    I appreciate the courteous service and fantastic quality of this ring. Hope to do business with this store again!

    I am so excited to receive the ring, I'm giving a 5-star review at this moment simply for the impeccable communication I have received from the owner. I wish all businesses had an individual such as him that takes such pride in his customers and workmanship. Once I receive the ring which should be any day now I'm going to put yet another good review because I will undoubtably be completely amazed with the finished product. I can assure you, I will be a returning customer.

    One of the best purchases I've ever made. I saw this ring that meant alot to me and Michael was also able to customize it. It originally is bronze but I asked for it to be copper plated to match the rest of my edc and he was able to do that. I also added a protective coating and so far there's been no discoloration to my skin yet it still has a nice patina, so I definitely would recommend the protective coating. I'd give 10 stars if I could, I highly recommend. Also, another great part is part of the proceeds go to Veterans.

    If I could give 10 stars I would! Michael was outstanding; from start to finish he was personable, professional, prompt to respond to any of my questions or concerns and extremely thorough in his responses. My boyfriend LOVES his heritage ring. The quality is unreal, the size is perfect, the color and detail is impeccable AND he was able to curate the ring within 48 hours. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Highly recommended!!
