We continue our custom wedding and commitment rings with our popular Cowboy Angel wedding bands, Zodiac, Rune and other band styles in argentium sterling silver and 14kt gold.
Note: 14kt gold oftens looks quite different from image to image - you may have noticed :) It's just an artifact of the camera process, not wildly different types of gold!
Cowboy Angel Wedding Ring, 14kt Gold on Argentium Silver
One of our signature designs is the Cowboy Angel wedding band, which features a cowboy with a lasso that spells out the initials of the marrying couple and an angel on the other side catching the end of the lasso. In the back of the ring are mountains and clouds. These rings, which are 14kt gold on argentium silver run around $1000 to $1250 for the set. Email us to order your own personalized rings.
We make many variations of this type of ring. This set, for example has two cowboys on horses (header and heeler) spelling out the first initials of the marrying couple.
The cowboys are repeated on the back of the ring.
Here's another variation on the Cowboy Ring. In this case the couple wanted horseshoes and stars and just one cowboy forming their first initials with his lasso. This pair of rings cost $1100 an up depending on size.
Here's another western ring. In this case only the groom wanted a ring, but he wanted a saddle, a cowboy hat, and a cowboy boot. Mark decided that the ring could be unified by placing the emblems within lasso frames. This ring costs $550 and up depending on size.
We can design rings with multiple alphabets, as we did on the request of this Hmong and Jewish couple. The words are Hebrew and Hmong for love. The rings also included AAA grade sapphires. The back of the ring features two celtic knots joined by a heart.
You can see the design for this ring on this page.
These customers wanted the kanji for the Chinese year that each of them were born repeated three times around these quite tall (10 mm) rings. Rings similar to this sell for $1200 each - less if shorter and without the rims.
When our customer said that he and his wife wanted rings with seven symbols I really did not think there would be room. Seven is probably the maximum for small size rings though. The ring is 14kt gold, about 2 mm thick and 8 mm tall.
The bride's ring substituted a sun and crescent moon for the Thor's Hammer. You can estimate $1250 and up for a pair of rings like this.
A Discordian couple commissioned these rings. On the man's ring there is the apple of Eris, a pentagon, the hand of Eris and a pentagram. On the woman's ring the pentagram is replaced by a ruby. These rings start at $350 each.
Runes on rings make terrific wedding/commitment/hand fasting rings as they can be specifically personalized. Below are two pairs of rune wedding rings, one incised and oxidized, the other raised and oxidized. Costs start at $225 and may require a design fee. Email us to have your own rune rings made.
Here's another type of rune wedding bands, with Elder Futhark runes incised into a high shine band ring.
This is the simplest type of Rune Wedding Band, the runes incised on a high shine band. Depending on the size you can have 15 to 20 or more runes on a band like this. In 14K yellow gold a size 6 /12, a standard women's size, 7mm tall, would be $750; a size 9, a standard men's size, 8mm tall, probably $900. We can make them taller but not much shorter. The ring is also available in 10K and 18K yellow gold and in palladium white gold in all these karats. Email us to have your own runes and to get quotes on any size.

Mark made these rings for his daughter Ananda and her husband Brad.
We were contacted by a couple who had met on the internet and done their best to arrange as much as of their marriage ceremony as they possibly could on the internet. They lived close to us and we were honored to perform their wedding ceremony, in a really beautiful botanical garden in Gainesville, Florida. They designed the rings, from a pair of sigils; hers on his ring and vice versa. The sigils were cut from gold sheet, rounded, and flush soldered to sterling silver bands. Rings like this cost $1000 for the pair, plus the design fee, depending on size.
For this couple the oak and willow were important symbols. We crafted a pair of wedding bands that celebrated this by combining the leaves of the two trees in a motif that went around the ring lilke a frieze. Similar leaf rings with rims would run $650 and up for the set or $300 and up for each. This type of leaf or floral motif would also look fabulous in 14K yellow or red gold on a sterling silver band. Email Us with your ideas.
This couple commissioned wedding bands with personal sigils they had devised soldered around the silver bands in 14K yellow gold - his sigil on her ring and vice versa. Sets like this cost $750 and up.
These two rings were for the wedding of one of our closest friends. We bothperformed the ceremony, in a fine New Orleans mansion on the edge of the Vieux Carre. Both the bride and groom are artists and they came to New Smyrna Beach and spent a few days with us designing the rings and developing their marriage ceremony. The theme of the rings was crescents. Our friend is a carpenter, an architect and a builder so his ring, on the right, needed to be a ring that would look better the worse he treated it. Mark made a thick band of 14kt white and yellow gold using a technique known as married metal. The crescent moons go through the ring, so they can be seen on the inside. These rings were our gift to him and his bride. He's a great and generous person who has been most kind to us! We're just not sure how much these would cost, but you can email us if you would like similar (not the same) styles and we'll figure it out.
One of the couples we married in 2004 came to New Smyrna Beach from New Orleans to have their cermony on the beach. The groom, Henri Montegut, is our tattoo artist, and a truly great one at that. He and Mark designed the rings together. Unfortunately, soon after he left we got slammed by 4 hurricanes, one of which destroyed our apartment which was on the second floor! You all know what happened to New Orleans the next year. Henri, fortunately, and his beautiful wife Kayce, are both fine and he's back in business.
Check out Henri's work here! Tell him Mark and Pam sent you!
This was the ring Mark made for his son for his wedding in 2014. The combination of 14K red gold and palladium white gold is striking. As time goes by the red gold, which is red because more of the alloy is copper, softens and matures in color. This was a Size 9 ring and was valued at $750.
