Recycled silver coins
These ‘coin’ rings are available in all sizes, and each one is handcrafted to order from an sterling silver British coin.

Coins minted before 1920 in Britain (and many other countries) are sterling silver. These coins are just perfect to turn into rings. During the terrible world wars some artisan soilders would take these precious 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.

Smaller size rings are made using sterling silver Sixpences and Shillings. Medium size rings are made using Shillings and Florins, whilst larger rings are made using Florins and Halfcrowns. They all look fab. From the drop down menu you are able to request a specific width.

Below are a list of the maximum widths for each coin when transformed into a ring. You are welcome to request thinner bands for each coin but obviously not wider than stated. The rings pictures are all 5mm wide.

Sizes : Approx

Sixpences approx 5 mm wide.

Shillings approx 6mm wide.

Florins approx 7 mm wide.

Halfcrowns approx 10 mm wide.

“An unbroken circle of union…”

These rings also make fab alternative wedding bands. The creative process used in making them means that there is no join. They are an unbroken circle. One coin turned into a lovely, original ring.

    Wonderful product and fantastic service .

    I like that this ring was made for me and is unique, at first I thought that the details had been hammered slightly too much, however it is patinated by daily wear.

    Lovely ring made from a little piece of history

    I loved the idea of a ring made from reclaimed materials, and I’m really pleased with the result. Each ring is individual and such a clever use of an old coin. Mine is a silver florin from 1887 .

    Beautiful

    After hearing about the website from a friend, I ordered a ring in size G to wear on my pinky finger. I couldn’t be more happy with it. It has a never-seen-before look as well as vintage as the same time since it was made from a recycled coin.
    It’s exactly what I was looking for.
