"This listing features a beautiful 1874 Silver Newfoundland Queen Victoria 50 Cent Half Dollar Coin Ring, which is handcrafted and hand polished to perfection made specifically for you according to your instructions! I give you the option for a beautiful antiqued patina finish, natural mirror polish or real 24k gold plating on most of my rings. All my rings are dipped in a thin transparent jewelers coating to protect the detail of the coin and is done - FREE of charge. I love making statement rings and when I tripped across this very rare silver half dollar from Newfoundland that's over 142 years old, I was dumb-founded by its killer designs. The Newfoundland fifty cent piece was the last denomination to be added to the Victorian coinage. Its first year of issue was 1870. The laureate portrait is stylistically unlike anything used for the rest of British North America. The denomination became very popular and assumed importance after the failure of the Commercial and Union Banks of Newfoundland during the financial crisis of 1894. There were other years made from other materials such as copper and nickel but this was a very rare precious metal ring made out of "Silver" and after looking it up, I found that only a total of less than 80,000 total of these coins were ever made and very few available today from that period! Just for comparison sake, we mint literally millions of coins in the US "every single day" so couple that up with it's killer design and it speaks volumes."
I only got my hands on a few of these that were in exceptional condition worthy of making rings out of them so don't wait for the price to drop. The price of silver has been going up and so will what I need to charge soon for silver coin rings like these but more than likely, after the few I have are gone, I just may not get anymore.
When ordering online, it’s very important to pick the right artist for the job so here are a couple quick points I’d like to point out about myself.
It’s important to know you are working with an experienced artist. I’ve been making ring making training videos, mastering ring making and the art of fine detailing for some time on YouTube and several other sites. If you’d like, ask me for some links on where to watch me making custom rings out of coins, titanium, tungsten and stainless steel or simply search “Patriot Coin Rings” on YouTube and see for yourself. I’m certainly not a big business but I do go all out for the hobby and customer satisfaction is priority one!
○ Ring Size Guarantee:
If for any reason you decide to change your ring size after your order was completed (coin rings feel different than common rings) or maybe in a year your finger either gets smaller or larger (our bodies do change), that’s not a problem! Just mail it back to me and I’ll gladly resize your ring FREE and with no hassle. I want you to love your ring for life! Note that the only exclusion to this are rings custom made out of Deer Antler, Meteorite, Wood or any other material that can't be resized without breaking it. With those types of rings, you definitly want to double check your ring size to make sure you have the most comfortable fit.
○ Best Price Guarantee:
If you find someone else offering a lower price, let me know "before" ordering and I'll see what I can do for you. It never hurts to ask.
○ Customer Satisfaction:
First, kindly read what other people are saying about the quality of my work and customer service. I work very hard to let every customer know just how special they are and do my best to show it. If for any reason I don’t meet your expectations after designing your custom made ring, just let me know and I’ll gladly refund your money. I’m just a hobbyist looking to make people happy with my art. It’s not about the money. If you wish, I will even send you photos of the finished ring made just for you (not a representation) before the ring is mailed to make certain you are 100% satisfied. The only time I can’t refund something is if you get what you ordered and it’s been personalized such as with a personal engraving making it impossible for me to resell.

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 😍

The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry).

Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating.
