Would you or someone you know love to have a piece of REAL DISNEY HISTORY? I've reached out to Phil Sears, a world-renowned authority on Walt Disney Collectables. I have a very limited supply of pieces of wood purchased from Phil Sears with letters of Authenticity certifying they are from the very Barn Walt Disney himself converted into a small workshop (see picture above) where Mickey Mouse himself and other Disney characters first were born into the world! I've further used and set the wood into a ring 100% hand-made right here at Patriot Coin Rings to come up with something very unique thanks to the idea of one of our fine customers and fellow law enforcement veteran - John.
The piece of wood that would normally come stapled to the certificate as shown in the photo above will be used to make your ring. You will not be receiving an additional piece of wood as it was used to make your ring. I will however include the letter of authenticity the piece of wood came with along with the 15 Page copied document Phil Sears sends with this kit. (READ MORE BELOW)
Note: If you can't find your size available, message me. I might be able to custom design another set in your size (Men or Womans) and that goes for changing the width of the band or metal if you desired. I'm always open to discussing specifics as I truly make these myself!

MESSAGE FROM PHIL SEARS
"When Walt Disney came to Hollywood in 1923, he roomed at his uncle Robert's house at 4406 Kingswell Avenue. He built an animation stand in his uncle's garage and worked on an animated reel of cartoon jokes which he tried to sell to the Pantages Theater Company.
The garage-turned-studio was sold in 1982 and moved to the Garden Grove Historical Society, and has been on permanent display there for the past thirty+ years, just a few miles from Disneyland.
Leading the 1982 team that purchased and moved the garage was Disney employee and fan Arthur Adler. When the garage was moved, Adler saved the small pieces of wood that splintered off the garage during dismantling. These pieces, which were too small to be used in the restoration of the garage, are now available for sale to Walt Disney fans who appreciate the significance of having a little bit of Walt's first Hollywood workshop/studio as part of their personal collection.
Authenticity: The saving of Walt Disney's garage from demolition, the moving of it to its current location, and the sale of the remnant pieces to me (Phil Sears) is documented in the Walt Disney history book, "Walt Disney's Garage of Dreams" by Arthur Adler. (The book is not included with this purchase, but is available on Amazon.) On page 41 Adler mentions that he got too old to sell the pieces himself, he sold them to me, Phil Sears. Every piece includes my Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.
Also included is a 15 page package of photocopied documentation prepared by Adler. It includes a short history of him saving the garage, a copy of a letter from the Disney Studio Archives, and some newspaper clippings. The wood itself measures approximately 1" in length. Each piece, being original, will vary of course. The book "Walt Disney's Garage of Dreams" is not included. This purchase includes the wood artifact, the Certificate of Authenticity, and Adler's 15 page photocopied history packet."

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.

I wish I could give Michael 10 stars. He does amazing work, is amazingly communicative, and a genuinely nice, caring guy! This is someone I'd recommend for anyone who wants something custom, with a personal touch, completed. Michael's craftsmanship, attention to detail and openness and honesty are refreshing and just what someone wants when working on custom jewelry! I highly recommend him for anything you need done. You won't be disappointed! Because I'm local, I had the opportunity to meet him in person which just added a little extra "magic" to the whole experience, and will be part of the story of my ring for years to come. Thank you for everything Michael. You have helped make our special day that much more memorable!
