    That is a really cool ring. It would be interesting to know how they did that. I'm guessing some sort of soft tooling and rolling it on a lathe?

    It does look very cool. However I find my self questioning the reality of the GIF. It is lots easier to do that at a keyboard, in the virtual world, than it is to do it reality.....

    But then after writing the above, before I hit the post button, I looked up "how to make a coin ring". NOW I can say VERY COOL...

    Fascinating, hemmjo. Thanks for posting that; I'd always wondered how they managed to do that while preserving the detail of the ring.

    Nice find hemmjo! I'm not a big jewelry wearer, but these would make excellent unique gifts that are very inexpensive.

    I think I have worn a ring a total of about 3 days in my life not much more time with a wristwatch on my arm have a scar in both places from not wearing gloves while welding overhead the scars are 40 or 50 years old so faded I can hardly find them. My wife saw a ring she really liked 25 years ago, asked me what size I wore I told her size zero. She's never brought up the subject again.
