NEW TIMEFRAME - ONLY 2-3 WEEKS FROM ORDER VERIFICATION TO RING IN THE MAIL
BE "CERTAIN" YOUR RING WILL FIT SO YOU CAN ENJOY IT!
____________________________________________________KEEP IT SIMPLE: GO TO WALMART AND GET YOUR RING FINGER SIZED. THEY HAVE THE SAME "STANDARD SIZER" I USE. IF YOU GO TO A JEWELER YOU MUST BE CERTAIN THEY USE THE "STANDARD SIZER" AND NOT "WIDE SIZER." WIDE SIZERS DO NOT SIZE CORRECTLY FOR MY RINGS..
These are hand made and I must require a bit of variance allowed.
I ask you to give me the "NEAREST QUARTER SIZE" so I can be sure this will fit just right. Full and half sizes are offered by nearly all ring everyone on the web but me. I find that if I am within a quarter size of the actual order it is very hard to miss getting you a fantastic fitting ring.
STAINLESS STEEL AND TITANIUM SIZE RANGES
(New Expanded Titanium to Size 6-16 in Half Sizes)
No more green fingers from those who cannot wear those type of rings. All rings I sell are 100% Hypoallergenic. I also have the very best size range on the entire internet. I have looked at many sites and it is very clear they offer WHOLE SIZES or at times HALF SIZES, but nobody asks for a quarter size like I do. They also order in bulk using only the most often sold sizes, size 9-12. I do from size 6 - 16 and most styles up to 17 in quarter size increments which makes dealing with the craftsman a niche' in the market. Some exceptions exist above size 16.
- Most any ring on my website can be made from size 6-16 in "quarter" size increments. Ladies rings, I can go down to a size 5, but that is the lowest. Men's rings can go up to 17 in most rings but not the cut out rings.
TITANIUM ONLY AVAILABLE IN ROUND RING STYLES NON-GROOVED
in Titanium sizes ranging from 6 - 16 in half size increments.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If the individual page says it can be made in Titanium but says size 13 maximum, just enter whatever size you need up to 16.0. ( Titanium is not available above size 16.) It will take me some programming time to get those changes made, so bear with me please. ****
RING SIZING INFO - IMPORTANCE
STAINLESS STEEL OR TITANIUM RINGS CANNOT BE RESIZED ONCE MADE, SO PLEASE DO YOUR DILIGENCE AND FOLLOW ONLY MY INSTRUCTIONS TO GET A PROPER SIZING FOR THESE HARD METALS.
READ BELOW FOR CORRECT SIZING PROCEDURE BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER PLEASE. I WANT THIS TO BE A GREAT RING THAT YOU CAN DEPEND UPON.
Please be sure you provide a "recently verified" ring size using a "standard metal jewelers ring sizer" found at most places that sell jewelry. Walmart is a good best as they only have standard ring sizers that go to size 13. Sizes above 13 need to go to a jeweler and ask to be sized with their "standard" sizer, NO WIDE SIZERS PLEASE.
THIS CREATES REMAKES - DO NOT USE THIS METHOD OF SIZING
If you use a past ring you open yourself up to a remake and extra charges, so please just go get your finger sized. Your 10 minutes can save me 4-6 hours of having to remake a wrong size ring. No other method of sizing is accepted. No plastic, paper, or old rings can be used for a size using such hard metals.
No surprises or taking a ring that "supposedly fits" for a surprise. Each ring takes 4 hours to make. I must have a ring size that is down to the nearest quarter size
RING SIZE TOLERANCES THAT ARE "WITHIN MY CABLE-TOW
* Over 80% of my rings come out right on the money. These being handmade, it is impossible to be "right on" every time. The other 20% come out a quarter small or a quarter large and have to pass inspection as it is. A quarter of a USA ring size is the European equivilent to 0.3mm. If you have any metric awareness, you would know that is very small and well within reason on this type of material.
I GUARANTEE WITHIN A QUARTER SIZE PLUS OR MINUS OR RIGHT ON THE MONEY. NONE ARE PERFECT AND NOT LIKELY TO BE SO AS LONG AS I AM HUMAN.
HOW TO NOT MAKE A RING SIZING ERROR - CORRECT METHOD
Please verify your ring size at a local jeweler or a store that sells jewelry using a STANDARD METAL JEWELER RING SIZER, not a wide sizer, and get that ring size done.
Be SURE you look at the sizer as I have had folks been given the wrong size by a clerk.
The ring comes out and if it is within a quarter size I will pass it in final inspection. Most sites accept only half and whole sizes. I want you to have the BEST FIT possible.
* Remember to account for cold weather shrinking your fingers and warm weather making them swell. Medications are prone to swelling fingers as well. I cannot resize stainless so you need to be as close as you can be.
* Happy Brothers are my goal and I have a wonderful nearly perfect record, but I am human. Please leave Perfection for the Supreme Architect of the Universe.
EMBLEM INFORMATION - Size and Materials
Most emblems are 9/16" in the LONGEST DIAMETER - about 13.5 -14.5 MM
Emblems are both "die stuck" like a "COIN" which are the colorless and more durable with enhanced detail
OR baked enamel for those who prefer color in their rings. Please use common sense when purchasing a ring with enamel in it.
Enamel wears out if not cared for like a dress ring.
WHAT IS "GOLD FIRING" AND DOES IT LAST ?
This an annealing, "heat treat," process that turns stainless steel to a honey gold color. In fact, when making steel it is part of the process to anneal it to increase it's strength.
It is meant for "DRESS WEAR" as if you wear it all the time you will likely wear off the gold firing sooner than if you cared for it.
Very acidic skin types who find metals turn their fingers green DO NOT ORDER GOLD FIRING. It is a loved coloration and affordable that many Brothers enjoy and will not give up, but some just should not order it if they are aware of skin problems and the green thing. Stainless will not do this to your finger, but you would wear off the gold firing thus a waste of money and time.
QUALITY CONTROL AND RING CARE
My rings can last as long as you take care of it.
QUALITY CONTROL - 3 FINAL INSPECTIONS before shipping.
NO TWO RINGS ARE EXACTLY ALIKE NOR ARE THEY PERFECT. I can do my best and that has been well received over the years. Thank you. Fraternally, Brother John
I am sorry I am unable to have a small store at this time, nor can I have Brother's coming by my home to pick up a ring to save postage. I ship all rings the same way, US Priority Mail with delivery confirmation unless you designate otherwise which is often a waste of money unless International.
My advisors have told me that having anyone to my home to conduct business being partially disabled is not a good idea from a liability standpoint. I must ask you to order your ring the same way everyone else does. I am thankful to have a small business and be able to bring in a income.
Fraternally, Brother John
OUTSIDE ASSOCIATION MISCONCEPTIONS
Since many Brethren have asked about my association with other companies, I am including this message for clarification.
I am my own craftsmen doing my own work making rings Brother to Brother, period. I do not sell to middlemen or corporations.
If you run across others who appear to be selling my rings, these are not rings I make, even though some say that they do in their advertising. I have had my actual photos taken and used by other vendors for their advertising, but it is not me making that ring.
They are being purchased from another ring maker that I started out with until he behind my back started selling out to corporations. Now Brother Masons can pay a from $129.99 to $229.99 or higher depending on the size for some of the same styles I make for $99.99.
Some early styles are similar, but I expanded my Master Mason rings to 300 styles.
The only way I do business is to be sure you are fully informed about what you are buying and the "best way" to get the ring fit you desire.
REFUNDS AND RETURNS
Brethren, you are contracting me to hand make you a ring just for you alone. I do business by my Masonic Obligation. That being said, if you want a refund for after your ring is made and received I will only refund the ring charges, not the shipping it took to get it to you.
You must return the ring in a bubble envelope as it was received. Upon receipt I will refund all but the shipping charges I incurred.
Please do not order custom made rings without doing your diligence. This is very rare and nearly every time I have a refund it is due to someone not reading this page or not getting a ring size. I do remake rings if you provide the wrong size, but a service charge and second shipping along with return of the errant ring will be assessed. It is cheaper and happier to just follow the instructions. Thank you. Brother John
