simple, {secret} or chunky? (a giveaway!)

New rings!

We are so excited to introduce:

the "simple" message ring (on the right),
our "{secret}" message ring (on the left):



and the "chunky" message rings
that fit 2 lines of text! (but doesn't have to!)



These rings are handcrafted from start to finish in our studio using sterling silver- we handstamp, hammer, mold, fuse and antique it to a raw, organic and vintage feel. Every ring comes out unique.

The rings fit up to about 25 letters and spaces across.

Perfect for names, dates or a simple message.

* * *

Let's give one away!

Simply tell us which one is your fave:
simple, {secret} or chunky?
And what would you have stamped on it?

Blog, tweet and facebook for extra entries.

* * *

I will be announcing both winners
(for this giveaway and the Allora Handmade giveaway below)
monday morning!

I love the chunky rings - I would love to have "I am my beloved and my beloved is mine" on my ring. My husband has "and the two shall become one" inscribed on the inside of his wedding band so I'd love something special to describe our marriage on a ring for me. :)

Elizabeth said...

I love the chunky ring! I would be really original(cough cough)and stamp my two children's names on it. Okay maybe my dog's name, too. toigo

Julie S. said...

I love the simple. I would get our initials and wedding date engraved in it. LOVE!

The Greens said...

Chunky, chunky, chunky!!! My husband actually broke his finger and we cannot resize his tungsten wedding band so this would be an awesome replacement! That is, if I didn't decide to steal it for myself! :)

Carrie said...

I would choose the secret. It's adorable and i like that i would know something was written inside that nobody else can see, unless i let them :)

glamourbykate said...

I would do the {secret} and I would have it say "i love you madly" because that is what my husband and I always say before we hang up when he calls from Afghanistan. I would use it for a wedding band since mine was lost right after my husband deployed.

Jennifer said...

I love the secret ring! I would have my children's names stamped into it.

Danielle said...

I tweeted!!
@jenkied

Scarehaircare said...

Secret. I would put my fave scripture in mine.

stacey said...

I like the chunky but my hands are so small that would never work. I do love the secret one, too.

Sadie said...

I would put "A Ma Vie De Coer Entier" (Yoou have my whole heart for my whole life) which is what my husband and I have inscribed on the inside of our wedding bands. But I want it inscribed on the outside of a ring so I can show it off!

Jessica said...

Ooh, how to choose? I think I like the simple the best. I'd put my kids' names on it. My fourth girl is coming in May. Perfect way to commemorate our family being complete!

lisa said...

I love the chunky. I write either Romans 8:28 on it Orr my husbands name and our wedding date :)

Sara said...

You guys are outdoing yourselves again! I love all of these!!
If I had to pick it would be the chunky ring. It's a toss-up if I would have my family members' names or one of my favorite verses...

stacey said...

RT'd you. @staceymay

Amanda Joy said...

I like the thought of the secret, but I would probably choose the Chunky. I would have it say...

small things bring
true JOY
I love that my maiden name is Joy, and that my kids are the ones that make me truely happy... my husband too:)

Polka Dot Moon said...

Ooooo......I think I like the "secret" one. With our wedding date & initials inside.

Hubby's wedding band broke and this would be a cool replacement!

Sadie said...

I facebooked

Nikki said...

Ashley Bolof said...

Aimee said...

Simple with my kids names

shana said...

i think my favorite is the "secret" reminds me of the fact that "FINALLY" is engraved inside my husbands wedding ring. after nearly 5 years of dating (we were babies when we started!) and lots of waiting i was so excited for him to FINALLY be my husband . . . still am too! i think of my secret band i would have my hubby's name and our wedding date!
thanks,
Shana

Ashley Bolof said...

Darla said...

my husbands wedding ring was just stolen from his truck (long story!), anyway, these look like they could be for a man or woman? I think i'd go with the (secret) one, and have it engraved as our wedding bands were. gorgeous.

Kristi said...

I love the simple and I'd either get it for my daughter with her name or keep it for myself with "family is everything" on it.

corinne said...

I adore the "chunky" and would give use it as my wedding band..

cburlett said...

LOVE the chunky ring! Not sure what I would put on it, yet...I'll be thinking!

MrsKlimahTree said...

I LOVE them both but...would go with chunky and write: "To infinity and beyond...Lisa, Peter, Layla & Emry"
it started with my 7 yr old when she seen Toy STory when she was 2...ever since, we quote Buzz Lightyear with the "To infinity and Beyond" after we say I love you!!!

Paula said...

I LOVE these rings. I would get the "secret" ring with my wedding date.
Awesome!!!!!

Mama Marchand said...

I love the chunky and I'd put three words on it: grace, joy, and peace (the 3 things I strive for daily). :)

Mrs. H said...

Oh, I am so excited they're out! You sneak-peeked teased us last week. I think I'd go with the chunky. I've never had a "real" thumb ring and this just screams out "thumb"! I think I would pick my kids' names... but maybe not? Hmmm.

Farmer Mama said...

I would pick the simple one. I would either put mine and my husband's initials and our wedding date, or if I could wait to order it until we've picked the name for our baby-to-be, I would put mine, my husband's, my daughter's and our new baby's initials.

Ryan and Carly said...

I like the secret ring. Such a cute design. I would have me and my husband's "theme verse" psalm 34:3 :)

The Cohen's said...

I really like them both, but I think I'd choose the simple (Secret) one. I would put a bible verse in it as a constant reminder. ;)

Truly Unique Crochet said...

madly in love with both of them!!.. but i think the simple would be perfect for me.. i would write, "forever and a day" :)

alesa said...

MrsKlimahTree said...

I LOVE them both but would have to go with the chunky and I would have mine say "To infinity and beyond...Lisa, Peter, Layla & Emry". It started when my 7 yr old watched Toy Story when she was 2. Ever since, we all say "To infinity and beyond" (after Buzz Lightyear) whenever we say I love you!!!

Lindsey Lowery said...

i LOVE the secret msg one...and id get "to the moon and back" on it...bc instead of saying i love you to my husband we always say "to the moon and back" everytime he flies out to work! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Natalie said...

I adore them all, but I would personally get the simple one with "To infinity and beyond." When my 4yr old son was smaller, he was addicted to Toy Story (as most little ones are) and it became an everyday saying in our house between myself, my husband and son to say, "I love you to infinity and beyond." To this day we still use that and will definitely pass it down to our baby girl that will be here on March 14th :) Thank you so much for all that you do...PS...just got my "Three peas in a pod" necklace a few days ago for my birthday and love, love, love it!!!

Mama Marchand said...

I facebooked it!

Rich & Meredith said...

Secret!

I would put Ephesians 6:7 on it:
"Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men."

Liz said...

I like the simple one. But I bet my little boy would love it if I had a chuncky one with the ABCs on it so he could quietly look at it at church.

Pontos da Flávia said...

I like the simple one! Love the idea to carry nice words the whole day with me ;o)

Amanda said...

I love the {secret} one! I would let my hubby choose what was written on it!

Caroline said...

I would do a chunky one engraved with "God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever" (Ps 73:26... the whole verse if it fits, but the last half if it doesn't). I love the look of these.

emily said...

i love the secret one! I'd put our wedding date on it, 7-27-2001.

Whitney said...

I love the simple {secret}!!! I am getting married on June 18th so I would put something that represents both of us! Kevin & Whitney Lewis <3 6/18/11!! So I always have a piece of him with me and a loving reminder to get through the hard times without him! <3

Shannon said...

oh my goodness...i have been waiting for you to come out with rings!!!
i would LOVE the "simple" message ring with a simple word...DAD
i lost my dad a little over a year ago and have been wanting to get a ring to always wear for him...
so excited...i will be ordering one if i don't win :)

Erin K said...

I love both the simple and chunky but think the chunky wouldn't fit over my big knuckles. Haha!

Grace*Love*Faith*Hope

Shana said...

I love the simple one...I'd keep it simple, meaningful. Although I'm not sure what just yet... :)

Kim said...

I like the chunky - I think I would ask my husband to help me decide what to add to the ring! Thank you!

Toaster4JC said...

I love the chunky: Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved (since it's only 25 characters.)

Mommyduckof3 said...

I like the simple. I think I would put our anniversary date on it. Your site rocks!

Tracy said...

I think they are all great, but i love the secret ring the best. What I would put inside is very simple but means so much to me. I would put "always my love". The ring would be for my husband and he knows he will be always my love.

Loving Washington said...

I LOOOVE these rings! Love, love LOVE! My husband's wedding band has a secret message on the inside of his, but he's lost weight since and NEVER takes his ring off (even when he PTs (work out for the Army), showers, deploys, sleeps, etc.); it is ALWAYS on. I always worry about him losing it, although he's had it for almost six years now. His wedding band isn't what I'd pick for him now, although he insists that he loves it. I'd have to get him a secret ring that actually fits his finger.

Chrissy @ Home.Kids.Life. said...

I love them all! Maybe the chunky with my family's names on it.

Stef a Roo said...

Loooove the secret! Id put a personal saying my husband & I share.

Tatum said...

I love them both but I think I would go for the secret with mine and my husbands names and wedding dates on it. I would wear it in place of my diamond ring when I go to work since I don't like to work with my diamond on. lovely jewelry. Thanks!

Carrie said...

I don't see my first post. I would choose the Secret Ring. I love that only i know what it would say, unless i wanted to show it to someone :)

Loving Washington said...

Shared on FB too!!!

I might have to get my grandmother a ring, too. She and I had matching Irish bands she bought for us when she took me on a cruise to Alaska. I lost mine and I've noticed she still has hers that she wears almost daily. I'd love to get a matching set for her and I to share again.

heather said...

I love the secret one! Of course the inside would be a secret shhh!

Traci@ Beneath My Heart said...

chunky! chunky! chunky!!! I love it! I would have to think about what to put on it...Maybe Ps. 34:7

My Photographic Eye by Irela said...

Would love the {secret}...engraved inside I would put something my husband and I always say to each other.... "I Love You More" <3
(I have re-posted on FB)

Kodi said...

I love them all, but especially the secret ring. So special.

sarajane said...

I would get chunky. I would want one for me and one for my baby boy child that lives in Alaska. Oh his - I would have Life is a Journey stamped on it. On mine, I would all my kids names on it.

I just seen these sorta kinda rings someplace on Etsy and have thought they were totally rock sweet!

Melissa said...

I like the chunky ones the best but they all are beautiful! I'm not sure what I would put on it...hard decision!

p.s. my husband got me the peas in pod necklace for our anniversary and I absolutely LOVE it! Thank you!

LauraCarey said...

Sara Anne said...

I love all three... its so hard to decide. I like the chunky as a thumb ring or the simple would be so cute for everyday.

maggiewal72 said...

Simple. I would have my children's names Sadie and Finn inscribed on the ring.

Jamie said...

I love the secret ring, it would be the perfect unique wedding band. I would probably put forever love inside his with our anniversary & he would have to pick what was inside mine.

Katie Hufstedler said...

the simple ring is definitely my favorite! I would have "Psalm 73:25-26" (Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.) Such a great reminder. :)

The McKiernan's said...

carlisle clan conversation... said...

I really, really, really l<3ve the chunky one!

Traci Hendrix Hart said...

I love them ALL...but I would choose for *me* the Secret ring, so the words would always be close to me: Be happiness itself ~ Buddha.

So difficult to choose!! I would have to see them on, then I'd have to think about what to put on them. This is not something you can decide quickly! However, in a pinch, I'd go {secret} with H•L•P•D on the inside.
