Recycled 'out of circulation' coin
An absolutely beautiful oak leaf ring which is not only handcrafted, unusual, completely unique but have also been transformed from old 110 year old coins. When Searching through the enormous coin collection i have gathered over the years there are coins which just scream out at me 'I want to be a ring'. These 'coin' rings are available in a limited qty and limited sizes.

The specific art of looking at coins and turning them into lovely wearable, unusual rings began during the terrible world wars. Some artisan soilders would take these coins and transform them into rings for loved ones and to remind them of loved ones back 'at home'. The resourcefulness of these soilders is admirable and inspiring. This resourceful intent has now resurfaced in my work as a silversmith with green ethics looking to create original and unusual wearable pieces of art. Trench art to recycled art.

The outside surface of the ring emblazons one side of the coin with much of its detail intact. This gives the rings a wonderfully interesting aspect and evident history. However the best part is the inside of the ring, where the other side of the coin is clearly visible. This hidden detail, for you, completes the circle.

It is important to note that the ring is made from a copper coin. Many people feel the positive effects of copper against the skin ** MORE INFORMATION HERE ** however when exerting yourself or bathing is preferable to remove the ring to prevent unnecessary oxidation or verdigris build up. If this occurs the ring is easily cleaned and refreshed with soapy water. To completely prevent skin contact it is permissible to coat the inside of the ring with a clear nail varnish or lacquer.

Size : approx 5 mm - 6 mm wide. Unfortunately the coin size itself limits the amount of ring sizes.

I LOVE this ring! It is so unique and beautiful, I simply can't stop looking at it. I love that it was made from metal that has its own memory, sort of like wearing a piece of history. I am proud to wear it. Highly recommend!

What a beautiful piece of jewellery, I haven't seen anything like this anywhere else and could spend every penny I have and still not have enough from this website! This ring has got to be top of the list though.
