Coin Rings

Came across these beautiful coin rings. Made by a son and dad team of crafters, the rings are pounded and shaped from antique coins. The process leaves a few words on the outside and inside band.

While most of the rings are dated from the 1960s and 1970s, you can pick almost any coin to make a ring, including current issues. How nice would it be to have a ring with your anniversary engraved onto the surface?

What's also sweet are the words that rise to the surface (don't you love things with multiple meanings?)

You can get designs from other countries around the world, too. I'm particularly fond of this lovely set made from a Swiss Rappen and Swiss Two Franc.

Prices range from $24.50 to $79.50, for men's and women's sizes. Buy online at their website or their (duh) etsy store.
