Jewellery Type Rings

Beautiful custom made almost pure gold ring for alternative currency/investment in case of economic depression. An investment you can wear and enjoy.

Details:

I had this ring made under careful supervision to get it the way I want and I knew the goldsmith since I have worked several years as a jeweller. I had the refiner purify a whole bunch of gold and then melted in an 18k ring to add minimal alloy strength because 100% pure gold is too soft for jewellery. The gold to alloy ratio is 89.6 % pure gold (prior to mixing so it is likely higher with alloy burnup) and is within the legal range of 21k-22k. The ring is legally stamped 22k but the appraisal lists it rounded down to the lower range at 21k to be conservative (as I requested for accuracy). The diamond was graded in the setting at .22ct. The project started with 21.8 grams of gold in total before mixing/rolling/hammering/filing began. The goldsmith rolled and hammered the band instead of casting to minimize wastage and maximize final weight. The ring is designed to have maximum gold content/strength ratio and thickness that is still wearable without bending and the process was intended to minimize the amount of gold that would need to be removed in manufacture through cutting and filing. I have the end pieces cut off the bar before soldering of the band for future use in sizing or repair if necessary. The extra gold is over 3 grams. This ring is between 15 - 17 grams and is appraised at 3160.00 in value as of March of this year. The appraisal photo was taken upon completion and prior to the ring being stamped. I have also had an engraving done on the inside which can be polished out if you want. The engraving says: "Coram Deo" and "2 Cor. 5:9". It is currently size 8 but the extra 3 grams of gold are sufficient to size it up on the way to a size 10 if necessary.

This ring was made to be used as currency in the case of economic collapse. It also happens to be beautiful as a price of jewellery. Price is firm. Any lowball offers will be blocked.
