    well, this stuff was designed and small production batch ordered by several local (Russian) gun-guys.
    I'm still thinking on which one to order...
    the ring itself is silver, the "decoration" is a cut-of base of original cartridges. Price in Russia is about US $100, but I'm not sure if you can order it from overseas...
    Still, i guess any jeweler can made you similar thing using your favorite brass ;)

    Those are great looking Max.
    That's an unusual pin strike mark on the .45, what gun was that shot from?
    Personally, I like the one with the red 7.62 x 54R.

    Nifty! I don't wear jewelry much myself, but I may have to get one of those for the rare occasions that require me dressing up. Is there a URL that they sell those from? And do they make them to fit size 15 fingers?

    I've seen similar here. They do look "striking";)

    Looks like a Glock pin strike to me.

    Cybrludite, unfortunately there's no URL - it was a private order, sort of group-buy for members of a large Russian gun internet-forum.
    Also, i suppose shipping precious metals over borders could involve a lot of troubles with Russian customs.

    That's what I thought Daniel. They got Glocks in Russia? Good gosh, those plastic pistols are like the Borg!

    You mean ruthlessly efficient and near impossible to destroy? :neener:

    Those do look pretty cool. But I bet the TSA would confiscate them if you tried to wear one through an airport.

    Nifty!

    My jewelry is minimal, but oddities do appeal.
    A niche market waiting to happen.

    I want a .308 one!

    Nice

    Anyone know a jeweler with a sense of history and humor?

    I can think of a number of folks that need one of these.

    That is a great idea...who can do these? I wear a wedding ring only, but one of those might change my mind. Now, how many guys are going to need multiples, and wear the correct ring with the caliber of the CCW of the day?:D

    Orvis has made a leather belt for some time with 12G brass heads as decorations on it.

    Personally, I'd rather see them as tie tacks because I shan't be wearing another ring.

    You need to replace the primer with a diamond :)

    hmmm... using brass cases, it shouldn't be TOO hard to replicate...

    If people are really interested, I'll ask my sis about doing some: she's a silver-smith...

    ok... sis likes the idea. Not sure how fast we can get to it: she's makin stock for the summer. The more folks interested in 'em though, the more likely she is to make 'em...

    Now, I just need to find some brass with the Molon Labe headstamp...

    I bet I could make one of those. I'd probably go stainless, though, 'cause I like industrial jewelry.

    What are primer cups made out of? Straight copper?

    Gonna agree - the .45 looks like a Glock firing pin hit it.

    "Is that your class ring?"
    "Yes. Class of .45 ACP."
