1 Thes. 5:4-5 – You’re Not in Darkness. You Are Children of The Light.

(50 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: 13mm 1st 3 photos
Choose between 8mm – 14mm wide
Choose desired core metals for your ring
Thickness: 2.5mm approximately
Materials: Outer metal is 999 Fine silver
Core metals are either:
925 Sterling silver, brass or 14K gold
High quality materials from within USA

Difference between the metal options:

Sterling Silver & Brass Cross – Brass turns a yellowish brown, like an antique brass. Therefore, for the life of the ring, there would be a yellowish brown cross on a sterling silver core. This option is quite durable.

Sterling Silver & 14K Yellow Gold Cross – The gold cross does not oxidize brown at all, it remains the same bright gold color as seen in the photos forever. The gold cross option is even more durable than the brass cross.

14K White & 14K Yellow Gold Core – Highest quality option. The entire core is solid gold, and the cross will never oxidize brown. It will stay the colors you see in the photos forever. If you like the color of the cross in the photos, and do not want the cross 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 looks like. It is a different design, but this gives you a visual of what the different cross metals will look like for the life of the ring.

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:
*8-14mm wide, Sterling & Brass Cross
*8-14mm, Sterling & 14K Yellow Gold Cross

*Select your ring size, add to your cart
*Please indicate the occasion and date

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.

1 Thessalonians 5:4-5 – But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

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.

  1. Rachel Nelson

    We LOVE my fiance's ring!! Gabrielle was able to finish the ring and get it to us 3 weeks before our wedding, which was faster than we had even anticipated! My fiance loves the distressed look and the different metals- it is definitely a unique wedding ring! We're so happy we chose Maggi Designs.

  2. Rachel Marhevka

    MaggiDesigns did a fantastic job on this and I was thrilled with the results. She was very timely despite the business of the season in which I ordered the ring! It fit perfectly and my husband loves it. Gabrielle was very responsive to all of my emails, honest, and did what she could to accommodate my requests.

    Thank you so much!

  6. Emily Carlock

    Gabrielle is a wonderful artist with the best customer service! In the weeks between ordering and receiving my ring, she kept open, candid conversation and provided every bit of information on her product to make sure you I was100% satisfied. When I got the ring, not only did it come earlier than the estimated date, but it very clearly shows how compassionate she is with her work. Obviously one of a kind, I could not be happier with the quality of the ring and service that Gabrielle provided.

  20. Southern Dream Design

    Awesome ring!

  21. Michelle Marin

    Working with this shop and designer was a wonderful experience. We were able to get exactly what we were hoping for in a ring. We were updated throughout the process, and that helped us know what to expect. Wonderful

  22. Stacey Cody

    My daughter wanted this ring for her husband at their wedding. Due to some financial challenges due to moving up the wedding date, they thought they would not be able to get this ring. She told her groom that they would have to get it later and would get a lesser ring for the ceremony. Well, she was able to surprise him with it at their wedding and he was thrilled! The craftsmanship is remarkable and it was a pleasure to work with the talented creator to receive this custom product. I highly recommend this vendor and this product!

  23. Tara Schlake

    The seller contacted me upon my purchase of the ring! She kept me up to date during each stage of the ring. It shipped in the amount of time that she said it would take to be made. Quality material! Love, love, love it!!

  24. Ferrin Dunnehoo

    Just got this in today and I absolutely love it! It looks Just like the Picture and it feels really sturdy and of great quality. More than anything I was really impressed with the seller. I was contacted numerous times just giving me updates and even showing interest in me as a buyer by asking when my wedding date was and a little about my fiancés personality. All in all it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend them to anyone!(:

  25. shallynrae1

    It suited my fiancé perfectly and was exactly as seen in the picture. The seller was in contact at every stage of the process, and was very easy to do business with

  26. Stefanie Poulson

    We love it!!!

  27. Crista Dickinson

    This ring is absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do it justice. My fiance and myself are over the top in love with this ring. I can't say enough about how happy we are with it. And the customer service is phenomenal as well.

  28. Beach Daisy

    What a beautiful ring we received. It was exactly as described, with special care taken to ensure it was perfect for us. I would recommend working with Gabrielle to anyone considering this type of item. It was positive and went exactly as expected. The ring fits perfect and is just as gorgeous in person as on the photo!! Beautiful work!

    Beautiful ring! Will be perfect for our wedding. Love love love it!

    My groom was speechless; and this NEVER happens! The ring was just as described; however the pictures do not do it justice. Start your union with this blessing-place your order with Gabrielle.

  31. Paige Maus

    This ring is AMAZING and so is the creator! Highly recommend choosing Maggi Designs for your special ring. She was so kind, told us where she was at in the process and let us know when it shipped. We are beyond in love with this ring and I cannot wait to place it on my soon-to-be-husbands finger in 50 days!! Thank you SO much Gabrielle, we can't wait to show it off!

  32. Bru Lynn Jame

    Purchased this ring for my soon to be hubby, and all I can say is that we love it-beautiful craftsmanship, true to size and something absolutely unique. We couldn't be any more pleased with our purchase. As for MaggiDesigns, they are extremely communicative. All questions were answered promptly, product ETAs were accurate and communicated without myself even having to ask. A wonderful company to do business. Thank you so much for this beautiful piece!

  33. misssarah057

    Gabrielle's business is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I would highly recommend ordering her products! She is very easy to work with, responds quickly, and creates the most unique pieces of jewelry I've ever seen. We had ordered the wrong size at first so we had to send it back but once she resized it we had it back within a week! Im so glad we decided to order my future husband's wedding band through this company. 5 stars all the way!

  34. Meagan McCormick

    My new husband I love this ring. It is perfect for his rugged personality and it is obvious that a lot of work went into it being crafted just for us.

  37. Angelica Vredeveld

    This was the perfect wedding ring for my husband. He’s very rustic and we looked at jewelry stores and couldn’t find anything he liked until we looked on Etsy. The size of the ring fit really well.

  38. Stephanie Langowski

    I had been looking at this ring for over a year now. I thought it would be perfect. I was very pleased with the finished results. I appreciate the quick respond times and updates.

  44. sara stockovich

    This ring is beautiful! My husband loves it. It’s comfortable but looks rugged

  45. Chad Hardcastle

    In 2013 Maggie made my first wedding ring then after about 4 years I unfortunately lost it. After going a couple years with no ring…..I knew I had to get a replacement from her as well. I LOVE this ring and get compliments all the time. Received with a hand written letter sealed by wax and a personal message for my wife and I, I couldn’t be a happier customer. I always point people in her direction if their looking for a more personalized unique experience. Highly Highly Recommend

  46. Lauren

    Gabrielle has been so helpful throughout the whole process. I was provided all the necessary information to ensure my fiancé’s ring would arrive on time. Gabrielle kept me up to date every step of the way and provided us with some amazing pictures of the shop. Our ring arrived today and is even more beautiful than pictures could show. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day and Shawn will receive so many compliments when wearing his ring. Thank you again so much!!!

  47. rthreeofus1

    So, this is long overdue. I’ve been wearing this ring for 4-5 weeks and I do think it’s pretty bad a$$! I wanted something for our 25 anniversary and I found it here. I searched for many rings as I wanted something rugged. Gabrielle helped during the whole process especially since I ordered it and thought that the download of ring sizes would work that I found on the Internet and were 2 ring sizes off. Gabrielle kept me up to date and sent pictures along the way of the work being done. I’m glad I chose MaggiDesigns to craft my ring and I absolutely recommend her to anyone thinking about a new ring.
    Thanks again,

  48. Donna Mastin Cosmano

    My husband and I love it. Great workmanship, great communication. Would definitely buy again.
