Ring Shanks made of solid silver band. Does not include bezel cups, will come pin polished and finished as shown in the product photo! They make lovely stacking bands by themselves and are engravable, or you can add a cup. These rings will take up to 10 working days to make (please see our FAQ page to know how often our orders are shipped).
You will need to grind for adding bezel cups as required. The ring band (shank) is perfect for use with any of our bezel cup to make your own ring setting, such as the our 10mm scalloped heart, or you can remove the loop on a 10mm crown point heart (exclusive to Keepsaker Supplies) or a 10x8mm crown teardrop. The bubble and twisted bands are better for smaller cups up to 12mm round.
If you’d prefer to make the ring shanks yourself you can buy silver wire from us here.
You can also request label backing paper here for working with hair, or some practice ashes here. You’ll also need to provide yourself (not included). Follow our tutorials here to prepare your clients’ elements or buy a DIY breastmilk preservation kit from Etsy here.
The bubble bands are 2mm wide and the twisted band is 2.4mm wide. When you receive them, the bands can be polished shiny, brushed (with foam sanding pads), textured or hit with different hammer heads for different textures – please remember that this will increase the ring size, so if you need a textured band in a UK size Q, buy a size P and apply the texture until it’s a Q. Please anneal before enlarging and treat as Argentium which can be brittle if quenched too fast.
Ring Band Sizes
The sizes are calibrated with our standard ring sizing mandrel but may appear different on different models. We place the band over the letter or number on the mandrel that we wish to make. If you feel that the ring sent is the incorrect size please send a photo of it on a sizing mandrel.
Please note, we highly recommend that you advise your customer to add a UK ring size to their best fit on these wider bands. For example, if they are a UK size L on a normal ring sizer, the you should advise them to go for a size M. We will make whatever size you request but four years’ experience making these bands shows us that extra size is needed because of the extra width.
