Here are some common questions about Shandons Coin Rings.
Can I use my own coin?
Yes, please see the “Use Your Coin” option on the home page.
Isn’t making coin rings illegal?
No, it is not illegal. The law states it is illegal to “fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the mints of the United States”. There are a lot of ways to manipulate and fraudulently deface currency but making coin rings isn’t one of them.
Federal statute 18 USC 331 “whoever fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the mints of the United States … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.”
What if I don’t know my ring size?
There are many online options to find your ring size, but I always recommend getting sized at a local jeweler. Keep in mind that your exact ring size may vary depending on a lot of factors so you may want to get sized a few times to be as accurate as possible.
Will it turn my finger green?
No, all Shandon’s Coin Rings are made with real 90% silver coins that do not discolor like clad/copper coins do.
Cleaning / Care?
As with all jewelry it’s a good idea to occasionally clean your coin ring with a mixture of warm water and dish soap to keep it clean. To maintain the polish, I recommend simply using a polish rag or a jewelry wipe that can be ordered online or picked up at any store that sells jewelry. If your ring has an antiqued or patina finish, I recommend purchasing a clear coat protectant for jewelry (there are many to choose from) and applying it occasionally depending on wear to protect the finish
