This isn't an every day ring, this was a custom built wedding band designed for one of my customers who spared no expense to get this done in the highest quality possible! As they say "Pictures are worth a thousand words" so be sure to look "at all" the photos above! I even include photos of how this ring is made to prove the high quality and craftsmanship that went into this!
ABOUT TODAY'S SALE:
Here's the deal. I can't afford to be giving these rings away at discounted pricing because they are so labor intensive however I'm listing 6 for sale! The reason and only reason I'm doing this is to get 6 quality reviews by a few good ETSY customers. After that, the sale ends and the price goes to the normal price.
ONE SOLID WHITE TAIL DEER ANTLER:
Normally Deer Antler Rings are pieced together or thin skin shavings are glued but not this one. Each and every ring is hand carved from an antler and then milled to perfection from one solid piece (not pieces)! This is a very expensive and labor intensive process!
RECYCLED FROM NATURE:
We have connected with a Deer Farm who sells us their sheddings so no deer have died in the making of these rings if you are a naturalist and if you are a hunter...oh well, it's a mute point....lol
WEDDING STYLE COMFORT FIT FOR EVERY DAY WEAR:
The inside of the band has a dome shape to it giving an extremely comfortable feel and can be worn all day every day.
UNIQUE DOME STYLE OUTER SHAPE:
Very unique to the norm as most all deer antler rings are made with straight walls because of the difficulty in milling antler this way but with high precision accuracy (see photos above of just the inner antler alone before the tungsten is added on) this ring was made to be strong, smooth, and with comfort in mind (my client didn't care what it cost so I went the full 9 yards on this and not only did the inside get a domed comfort fit but the outside got a nice dome shape as well. You'll almost never see this with deer antler because of the difficulty to mill with this precision.
RUGGED LOOKING HAMMERED TUNGSTEN SIDES:
The customer got tricky on this one. She wanted perfection on how the hammering appeared and didn't want random hammerings so semitry was perfect however I was instructed to make it with a strong rugged appearance that had a bit of aged nature like appearance to it (not a flashy bright silver like cheaply made rings) and in her words "I NAILED IT" (what she was envisioning)!
ANTLER COLOR GUARANTEE:
I guarantee there is no guarantee.... All were made from the darkest antlers possible I could find however as you may or may not know, 90% of an antler is white so there is no guarantee what will be available in your specific size as all are already premade ready to ship today while they last and I only made a few of each size. You may choose in the options section to the side what you "would prefer" and of course I'll do my best but just no guarantee as you can see in all the photos above. If you request a photo of ie. the darkest or lightest antler in your size, I can do that for you! The alternative choice would be in that options section to just ask me to "Cherry pick the best looking one for you" and I'll do just that regardless of color, I'll look for what I believe to be the best of the best in your size!
UV & WEATHER PROOF:
The antler is treated with a jewelers clear coat protectant to give it a UV protection as well as making it sweat and water resistant. You can make this ring last for years and years by periodically adding a new layer of protection which is very cheap (typically under $20 seen here)...
Only authentic antler and the highest grade Tungsten Steel are used and both are sealed as mentioned above in a hypoallergenic sealer keeping your skin away from the material and with a small individual use bottle you can use as much or as little as you like, when you like!
A REAL CHALLENGE:
This customer put my skills to the test here. I normally would make a band, create an inlay for what ever material the customer wants and set it however I had to work backwards on this by making one completely solid antler requiring well milled antler that would make any expert sweat and down a Xanex or two with a beer and then finish it by setting the Hammered Tungsten to the antler and not the other way around. Truly made by Blood, Sweat and Beers!
LIMITED QUANTITY FOR REAL!
Like I mentioned earlier, I couldn't go into this much work without milling a batch run having several of each size but we are talking about 10pcs of each size and that's it. Whether I will do this again, time will only tell so I recommend getting yours while you can and consider getting a matching set for your partner especially if you both share the passion for nature, camping or hunting.
DO YOU HAVE A RECOMMENDATION ON HOW TO MAKE THIS ANY BETTER?
I specialize in making dreams come true and love taking the imagination of my customers giving it my all to make it a reality so if this for some reason doesn't have you salivating by now where you just have to have one then share with me what you are looking for and I'll be happy to get you a quote for a custom made band like I did for this customer. I use all kinds of rare materials and about the only thing I'm not really into are gem settings. I try to leave that to the big commercial retailers to do the every day traditional stuff and I specialize in what they don't do which tend to in the opinion of my clients carry far more meaning beyond just owning a basic ring but rather a piece of art that means something to you and your partner!
HELP MILITARY VETS RETURNING HOME FROM WAR!
Yea, if you weren't aware of it the whole mission statement behind what I do here with Patriot Coin Rings is that I'm a VFW myself and retired law enforcement and only because I'm a work-aholic, I've been in the hobby gone business of making custom bands which originally started with coin rings at first (thus the name) where all the proceeds are donated to various military charities the largest of which is the Wounded Warrior Project charity so you not only will have the satisfaction of knowing your ring was custom hand-made specifically for you and not by some mass production retailer but you also contributed to help a vet get much needed prosthetic, extended medical treatment beyond that of the VA hospital, mental and physical rehabilitation as well as re-vocational training to re-enter the civilian life style again. Thank a Vet today for their service by making the choice to work with me here at PCR created from the start to help them as they return from war and God Bless!

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.
