Acts 26:18 – Sent to Turn Them From Darkness to Light

(76 customer reviews)


Completely handcrafted through metalwork, in Asheville, NC. No mass production is involved. Much love and care is put into each ring. These are built to last.

Width pictured: 7mm wide 1st photo
Choose between 7mm – 10mm wide
Choose desired core metal for your ring
Thickness: 2.5mm approximately
Materials: Outer metal is .999 Fine silver
Core metals are either:
Brass or 14K solid Yellow Gold
High quality materials from the USA

How to order:

If you want a custom ring in this design:
*Select width & metal for the core
*Below are the Width & Core Metal Options:
*7-10mm wide, Brass Core
*7-10mm wide, 14K Yellow Gold Core
*Select your ring size, add to your cart
*Please indicate the occasion and date

Difference between the metal options:

Brass Core – Brass will turn to a yellowish brown shade of color rather quickly. Therefore, for the life of the ring, there would be a yellowish brown core. This option is quite durable.

14K Yellow Gold Core – Highest quality option. The entire core is solid gold, and will never turn brown. It will stay the colors you see in the photos forever. If you like the colors of the ring in the photos, and do not want the core to turn brown, you may want to go with a solid 14K gold core. This is the most durable option.

See the 3rd to last photo for an example of what an aged brass and aged 14K yellow gold core looks like. It is a different design, but this gives you a visual of what the different core metals will look like for the life of the ring.


This all dark oxidized ring is part of the From Darkness to Light Collection. The finish of the ring begins all dark and over time transforms to be all light. See the 2nd to last photo for an example of how the all dark oxidized finish wears off making the ring the lighter natural color of the metals.

Custom Message INCLUDED:

Want to include a custom message inside your ring? Just put the custom message you want in the “custom message box” at purchase. If you want no message in your ring, put “NO MESSAGE” in the box. Your ring must be at least 7mm wide to add a custom message. Please keep the message to 16 characters to ensure it fits. See the last photo to see examples.

Acts 26:15-18 – “Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ ” ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied. ‘Now get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness for their sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

This verse is the inspiration for this design, but the scripture and reference is not actually on the ring. I can hand stamp the scripture reference inside the ring if you would like me to, just put that in the “custom message box.”

Tips on sizing:

For accurate sizing, I highly recommend you have your finger sized by at least 2-3 different reputable jewelers in your area. Tell the jewelers the ring is ‘standard fit’, and what ‘width’ your ring will be. If your ring width is 7mm or wider, have them use a wide band ring sizer. I can do 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 size increments to get an exact fit. I can make your ring any size up to a size 16. If resizing is needed, I can resize your ring for a $30 resizing fee. Keep in mind, it is much better for me to resize your ring later on to be larger in size, rather than smaller in size for several reasons.

Time frame:

Please allow me 3 weeks to handcraft your ring order. Message me if you need your ring order faster, rush service may be possible with an added fee.

Additional Information:

Please note, for any ring that has darker oxidation on it, oxidation levels and texture markings may vary from one ring to the next since it is handmade. Furthermore, the temporary dark oxidation finish will eventually wear off completely, making the ring the natural color of the metals. This can sometimes happen quickly, especially if one gets the ring wet often. Getting the ring wet will not damage the ring at all, but will wear off the dark oxidation at a faster rate. When choosing a ring with an all dark oxidation finish, please ensure you will be happy with the natural color of the metals. If you ever want your ring refinished, I can do so for a $30 refinishing fee anytime.

Added note about silver: The difference between “fine” silver and “sterling” silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is only 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% being composed of other metals, usually copper. They look the same, wear & polish the same, but fine silver is more “pure” silver.

    This ring is amazing, and the attention to detail is obvious. It was done and finished very quickly, and the quality of the ring is awesome. The owner is also very helpful and communicates throughout every step of the process. I was never once left wondering what was going on, unlike some other purchases I've made. Great work, and I would definitely buy more items from this store.

    Matt's band is simply perfect and it wouldn't have been if we didn't discover Gabrielle! She was a dream to work with and we could tell she really loves what she does by how perfect the ring turned out.

Thank You Thank You!!!

    This ring is absolutely perfect! Despite it being the peak of wedding season, (which is very busy for even me, a baker) she rush ordered this ring for us so it would be here in time for our wedding. perfectly crafted and absolutely gorgeous!! Thank you so much!!

  16. Stacie Anderson

    The ring by far exceeded our expectations. Great service and beautiful work!

  17. Emily Cole

  18. allycenethercot

    My husband LOVES his ring! Gabrielle did such a wonderful job and she kept us informed on how the process was going the entire time. I can't recommend buying from her shop enough!

  19. Dervla McCartan

    Hi Gabrielle, thanks soo much for the wonderful wedding band we love it. It looks really unusually, and it's all the nicer knowing it was made just for us. Thanks again

  20. Jenna Hinkel

    I absolutely love this wedding band that I purchased for my fiance. It is exactly what we were looking for. The craftsmanship is creative and unique. Absolutely perfect!

  21. Kyle Gerard

    I just got my wedding band in the mail!, It took me a while to decide between all of Gabrielle's designs but once I settled on the one I ordered, Gabrielle was nothing but helpful!
    I love the fact that it's handmade and even more impressive once I saw it in person. For me, ordering my ring from MaggiDesigns was by far the least stressful and most rewarding part of planning our wedding. I would recommend anyone looking for a beautiful ring with easy and very helpful service, go with MaggiDesigns and you will be far from disappointed. Thanks again For everything!

    Kyle Gerard & Sara Astley

  22. Steven Tooze

    Fantastic design, execution, and price. Gabrielle was quick to get back to me when I had questions and promptly provided tracking information when the ring shipped. Highly recommend this artist and her creations.

  23. Stephanie Palmer

    Ordered this ring for my soon to be husband, and its beyond words. We looked and tried so many other rings on and never satisfied. The ring came yesterday – in plenty of time before our big day (10/13/12). David loves the ring and so do I. Gabrielle kept us updated on the creation from day one, and wished us luck in our journey together. I now want to get a ring similiar.. 🙂

  24. Joy Fong

    The handmade men's wedding band I received is fabulous! Gabrielle did an incredible job on the ring. Thanks Gabrielle!

  25. Alina Sage

    Just got my husband's new ring today and he LOVES it!!! It's very unique and very cool!!! Thank you so much! It was worth the wait!!!!

  26. Veronica Segovia

    She was able to get it to me before my wedding even on pretty short notice and it looks awesome and fits him well!

  27. Naomi Hillis

    Gabrielle is sooo talented! My fiance loves this ring, we ordered from Australia, and were very annoying in asking to get it on time for our wedding, but Gabrielle was patient and lovely the whole time!! And she had it made & delivered to us before the wedding!!
    It fits him perfectly, he loves it, he loves it's uniqueness, and we are just so happy. Especially I will note Gabrielle's communication, she is brilliant! Thankyou thankyou thankyou!

  28. Nikita French

    OMG! I absolutely love this design!! The picture does not do it justice! My fiance and I were wanting to find something unique, for his quirky personality. It is exaclty what he wanted. I will go to MaggiDesigns for future jewlery needs!!! THANK YOU Maggi

  30. Orion McClure

    Gabrielle, the ring arrived, and I just wanted to tell you that Emily and I absolutely love it. The pictures of the design on your site are great, but they really don't begin to do your work justice. I love the feel of the hammered silver and vein of brass down the center — and beyond description, how just right it feels for us.

    Thank you for sharing your talent; it will be with us always.


  31. Beau Herger

    love it. thanks!

  32. Elizabeth Chase

    Perfect. He loves it!

  33. Sam Richardson

    We LOVE this wedding band! My now husband never saw another ring that he even kinda liked after seeing this one. It is so beautiful and unique. It is really perfect for him. We were so happy to find this on Etsy and love it so much! The seller is amazing and even worked with us to get it resized like the week before the wedding! Great experience and great ring, will definitely recommend this shop to others looking for a unique wedding band! Thank you so much:)

  34. jenet10

    We LOVE this ring! It's beautifuly crafted and was made/shipped in plenty of time for our wedding. Thank you!

  35. Serenity Coghill

    Purchasing the ring "unseen" made me uneasy however MaggiDesigns always kept in close correspondence and the ring itself is a handsome piece of craftsmanship. I admire it on my husband's hand and even the engraving on the inside was beautifully done. I would order from them again and highly recommend them to my friends!

  36. skliper

    Excellent ring, exactly what we wanted!

  37. Evan McCaskey

    Love the ring and Gabrielle was super responsive and helpful. I lost my first ring and she turned around a replacement in very short order!

  38. 1woodshed

    I'm the guy who hates to wear jewelry but it is a wedding ring so I have to wear it 🙂 I love the look of the ring and the fact that it's very unique. It fits perfectly and the rustic look is definitely my style! So I figure if I have to wear a ring it should be the coolest most unique ring possible and that's exactly what Gabrielle sent me. She did an amazing job and her correspondence could not be better. Thank you so much.

  39. Skyla Solomon

    If I could give 5 stars I would! Gabrielle/Maggi Designs is the greatest seller I've encountered on Etsy and on any other online store. She answered my questions before they were asked and kept me updated on every detail of the process it took to make my order. I ordered a silver and brass ring for my fiancé as his wedding band. And I have to admit, I was very nervous ordering a custom ring as my token of commitment to him, but I couldn't be more pleased. The ring was finished sooner than expected and I received it very quickly, not to mention how much better it was in person. This was such an amazing experience, I know I will definitely be giving referrals!

  40. Thomas DePalma

    The ring is spectacular…really, really nice work. I'm very happy I worked with Gabrielle. Highly recommended!

  41. David Ronsman

    She did a great job on my ring. It is exactly what I was hoping for: artistic and rustic. I love the forged copper center with hammered finish. She was very prompt with correspondences and was very pleasant. The price didn't change from the said price. And it came 2 weeks before she said it would. Great to work with you Gabrielle!

  42. jllees22

    Great personalized service! The ring is everything we expected and more…we love it!! Wonderful service!

  43. Jennifer Brown

    The ring I ordered from Gabrielle turned out perfectly! Her skill level matches her professionalism, and her creations are one of a kind. My husband isn't the type to wear jewelry, and hated the ring we got him for the wedding, but this ring was a nice surprise for him. In his own words, "I love this ring! It's awesome!".

  44. Kelly

    Could not have asked for a better ring! Absolutely perfect for my groom/ wedding in May!

  45. Lucynda Hedges

    Gabrielle is Great to work with. Very kind and professional. Me and my fiance Love this ring! Its very unique. Shipping was faster than I thought. I was suppose to arrive on Saturday, it got here 2 days early. Gabrielle was good at emailing us to let us know how its coming along, when its being shipped, and when we should expect it. I recommend anyone to buy from them. 🙂 A+++++ Very Satisfied!

  46. MO at Pretty Quirky

    The ring arrived this weekend and I can honestly say that we couldn't be happier. Like most men my fiancé was a bit apprehensive about wearing a wedding ring so it took us a long time to find something he liked. His face lit up when we opened up the package. It's a perfect fit and the skill and care that went into making it is very apparent. He's now really looking forward to wearing it and wanted me to express his thanks and real joy at this amazing piece of craftsmanship. The communication was excellent and updates really appreciated. Thank you Gabbi. I can't recommend you enough. It's perfect! x

  47. Jason Fleming

    The ring arrived today, before it was promised. I just love it! The fit is right on. Wearing it will bring tremendous satisfaction for the rest of my life. I am so grateful to have found you here on Etsy! Fantastic artisan, trustworthy business, beautiful work!

  48. Toby Emery

    Absolutely amazing ring! It is exactly what I envisioned! It's rustic, vintage, and one-of-a kind! Seller communication was outstanding! The ring also arrived earlier than expected! Kudos to Gabrielle Maggi for her excellent craftsmanship! Thank you!

  49. Leah

    Absolutely gorgeous ring. It was almost as if it were created with my husband's character and passions in mind. We both love it. It is very rustic, and fit our woodland wedding theme well. My husband has not stopped admiring his ring and showing it off to everyone–even the baristas at our local coffee bar.

  50. Robert Minvielle

    This ring was more than we could have asked for. It came in a beautiful case, and was even better than in the pictures. The fit and finish on this ring are fantastic. The seller was very good about us checking ring sizes and making suggestions, which really paid off as the first jeweler was off in measuring my finger and my old ring.

    The ring also comes with care instructions, which is a very nice touch. We are very happy with our purchase. Thank you!

  51. Sarah Mollenhauer

    Absolutely love the wedding band, it turned out beautifully! Gabrielle is wonderful to work with – she truly cares about the quality of her designs and the satisfaction of her customers.

  52. Teri Ayotte

    Thank you! We love my husbands new ring. It is so beautiful yet masculine at the same time and it fits perfectly. Now we are in talks to get me a new one too!

  53. Paul Magnaterra Jr

    Received the ring I ordered yesterday! Fantastic comfort with quality silver used. Great communication with seller and fast delivery! Thank You, Paul

  54. Monica Peralta

    Amazing! My fiance loves her ring! Such a wonderfully professional buying experience! Thank you so much for making this Christmas gift extra special. 🙂

  55. Sarah Franz

    Awesome! Better than expected, you can tell the amount of pride, skill and passion involved. My husband absolutely loves his wedding band! Thank you so much!

  56. Kate

    He loved it! I presented this ring to my husband on our wedding day, Feb 1st. It was a surprise to him because he was under the impression that the ring would not be ready for a while (I may have told some white lies). Anyway, it's perfect…the fit, the look, the weight of it. We love the center brass groove. It looks very nice on him. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day awesome!!

  57. David Pearson

    This ring is amazing, the photos don't do the ring justice. Excellent workmanship and the engraving on the inside of the ring just ties it all together nicely. My fiance is very jealous. Gabrielle has done a fantastic job and gave great service from start to finish.

  58. Stacy Cavegn

    Outstanding service. We were nervous to order a wedding band this way but would do it again in a heartbeat with this seller. The ring is more than expected..beautifully done and packaging was incredibly professional. Especially appreciated all of the communication so that we knew what was going on. Very highly recommend!!

  59. Angelica Babbit

    This was exactly the ring my fiancé wanted. Before I even ordered it I had several questions for Maggi and she was always helpful, professional, and respectful- not pushy at all. When I finally purchased the ring got to me within the timeframe she established in the beginning and it was beautiful! Unfortunately since I tried to guess my fiancés size- it was a little small. It was no problem for her, I sent it back and she had it back to us in a week. I highly recommend MaggiDesigns not just for her gorgeous products- but also her wonderful service! Thank you so much!

  60. sarah moran

    My husband loves his ring. It is beautiful.

  61. Stefano Franke

    Great communication with Gabrielle, and the ring turned out great!
    Very happy with the purchase.

    Thanks Gabrielle!

  62. Jennifer Blankenship

    Awesome ring! You can tell the artist takes pride in her work. thank you for the great communication and fast shipment.

  63. Morgan McCallum

    This actually came in earlier than expected and I am thrilled with the quality of the piece. I absolutely love the ring and think it is so beautiful. Gabrielle was great and got in touch with me right away to give me a time line and she was communicative throughout the process. I would definitely do business with her again. I can't wait to propose!

  64. joygrabiner

    Beautiful ring. Love the care and attention that Maggidesigns gives to both the customer and the ring! I highly recommend them. The only downside was the time it took to get the ring. Make sure you order in advance.

  65. Cammie Forgues

    Very nice, just was to big 🙁

  66. Jacquelyn Benjamin

    Love everything! This was a perfect experience, and more importantly, a perfect ring!

  67. Ashlee Mabee

    Absolutely amazing! Gabrielle was fantastic to work with and the ring was even better than my fiancée and I could have imagined! We could not be happier!

  68. marcy hokama

    Gabrielle was THE most attentive, caring person I've encountered on etsy thus far. We needed to rush order the ring, and although it was during the busy holiday season, she still took her time to get to know us as a couple to put all of her energy and love in making this wedding band. The ring itself is absolutely beautiful, and burst into tears as I opened the box, as I truly felt her energy and efforts she put into making this ring. Gabrielle, thank you so much for making this process so special. Your presence was truly felt and appreciated.

  69. Ashleigh Aaron

    Thank you for taking the time to make my husband's ring so beautiful. We love it!

    Totally exceeded expectations! Absolutely beautiful! Picture does not do justice! Thank you for making our special day that much more special! <3

  72. Thomas Cleary

    It is my privilege to take this time to share briefly of the EXCELLENT workmanship and customer service Gabrielle gives in her work..!! I was blessed to find this ring online a few weeks before I was to be married. In corresponding with Gabrielle she assured me I would have my ring in my hand before my wedding day that was about 2 wks away. I was glad to pay the addt'l service charge for the rush. She continued to give updates of the stage in production my ring was in. I was very impressed that she wanted to even know my wife-to-be's name so she can think of us while working on the ring.

    I can not express my gratitude and appreciation to you Gabrielle for such a fine and elegant ring..!! THANK YOU!!!

    I highly recommend her services and product…!!

    Tom Cleary~

  73. MissWhitney212

    Gabrielle made purchasing my fiancé's ring a personal experience, even taking the time to get to know us a little so she could be inspired by us while creating the ring. She responds quickly and puts her heart into everything she creates. I love that his ring is not mass produced, but completely unique to him. The price is incredibly fair for the quality of product and customer service received. I highly recommend MaggiDesigns to anyone looking to purchase a ring of any kind!

  74. holtdavid1

    Gabrielle did an amazing job crafting this ring. We had a great experience and we highly recommend her for a unique custom wedding band.

  75. Jane Campbell
