The ring, and video, were created by Nicholas Heckaman, at The Ring Tree, based out of Florida. He writes “I made my first coin ring because I wanted a special handmade engagement ring (my girl is very special, store bought just won't do).”

Love it!

He continued “I decided to try to make a coin ring without ruining the coin's details.  It took some trial and error, some failed attempts, and a bit of frustration, but I finally got my first double-sided coin ring.” Well we certainly think you succeeded.

Thanks to Ring Tree for use of their video. You can see more on their website here, via Facebook, or buy their gorgeous looking products via Etsy.
