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, .925 Sterling Silver Core
*8-14mm wide, 14K White Gold Core
*Select your ring size, add to your cart
*Please indicate the occasion and date

Difference between the metal options:

.925 Sterling Silver Core – Sterling silver is a great choice for the core of this ring. This option is quite durable.

14K White Gold Core – Highest quality & most durable option. The entire core is solid gold. Some people love to have some gold in their ring, if this is you, then you may want to go with a solid gold core.

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 2rd 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. On an interesting added note, this particular dark to light example photo is actually the same ring. I crafted it all dark for a fisherman, and it came back to me for resizing a couple years after being worn to that lighter finish.

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.

John 8:12 – When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

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.

Please note, the colors of the rings in this listing appear different shades of color mainly due to the fact they were photographed on different days and natural sunlight was used for lighting. Also, due to the fact that oxidation levels vary from one ring to the next with them being handmade.

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.

  8. Brittany Tugman

    I can not tell you how amazing this ring came out! Gabrielle's work is beautiful. This is the second ring I have purchased from MaggiDesigns and I'm even more pleased with the way it came out. My husband won't take this thing off! Great choice for a wedding band. Not to flashy but people still ask where we got it and are amazed that it was hand crafted. Gabrielle's customer service is the best I have ever experienced! She was always keeping me up to date with the status and went above and beyond my expectations! Thanks again Gabrielle for being amazing and creating this awesome piece!

  9. Amy Laguna

    Gabrielle has such a talent and made my fiancé's wedding band. We fell in love with the picture we saw on etsy and couldn't imagine loving it even more when we received it, but we did! I had a hard time prying it from my fiancé's finger to have him wait till the wedding! We recommend doing business with Gabrielle since she has great talent and she is such a pleasure to work with.

  10. Ally Thompson

    Gabrielle is awesome! I am soo happy and pleased with the ring she made for my husband! She has been delightful to work with and completely accommodating to customizing the ring like I wanted. Thank you so much!

  11. Jenna Connolley

    It's hard to verbalize how happy I am with Gabrielle's work. From the day we placed the order to the day we received our beautiful wedding band, Gabrielle has been nothing but a pleasure to work with. It's not often you find someone so kind and talented. If you are looking for a unique, beautiful men's wedding band- Look no further- because she is the best!

  12. chris condon

    Better than expected!!! Great job Maggie

  13. shawn mccoy

    Absolutely wonderful customer service!!

  14. elizabeth anderson

    Gabrielle made this for my husband for a wedding ring. It is stunning. She was a pleasure to work with and I hope we get the chance to wear more of her beautiful art in the future! Thank you!

  15. Lena Hoff

    My finance is extremely happy with his ring! We got it a little more narrow then the one pictured and it works so much better with his long skinny fingers! Communication with the seller was amazing! Couldn't be happier!

  16. Kelli Jo Larson

    My fiance/husband in 12 days, loves his ring. It was a pleasure to work with the shop owner and the ring was forged beautifully. It is smooth yet rough and a perfect combination of manly yet gorgeous. I would def buy more from this shop! Just great!

  17. Barbara Meleca

    She constantly kept us in the loop with the progress of the ring.
    You think you know what you are getting, and when you finally open the package it is significantly above the standards.
    The craftsmanship that you can tell goes into the ring is exquisite. The time and passion behind it is superb.
    Thank you.

  18. Kaylee Nipper

    Beautiful ring and awesome quality! My fiance and I both LOVE it! Its perfect for him. He wanted something unique and this is perfect. We did have to send it back to Gabrielle to have it resized—poor sizing info on our end. We are in the process of that now and Gabrielle has been awesome throughout the whole process of making this ring–sending updates and shipping info. She even let me know when she recieved the ring back from me for resizing. I cannot wait to get this package back once it has been resized.

  19. Marc Pyles

    The wedding band Gabrielle created for me is awesome! You can tell as soon as you see the ring that she takes great pride in her craft and that she truly takes the time to handcraft each item, neither of which is easy to find these days. Her communication has also been stellar throughout the process. I asked several questions before purchasing the ring and Gabrielle's responses were always prompt, thorough, and professional. I highly recommend purchasing handcrafted jewelry from Gabrielle.

  20. sahannum

    This item was precisely as advertised and arrived very promptly and safely. It's beautiful and unique: I'm honestly excited and proud to wear it…which is a good thing, as it's likely to adorn my finger for the rest of my life. 🙂 In addition, the artist was incredibly forthcoming, informative, and helpful during the process. (I asked her a great many detailed questions and received satisfactory and polite answers to them all.)

    Would recommend.

  21. Niki C

    This item is great! It was exactly what my fiancé and I were expecting! It looks amazing and you can tell it was made with so much care. The seller was honest about how long it would take to make and ship and his timeline worked out perfect for us.

  22. Sydney Thompson

    This ring is perfect! Very unique and well made. True to size and description. We love it!! Great seller, highly recommend, you won't be disappointed =)

  23. Michelle Jordan

    Let me just say that this ring far exceeded my expectations. The quality and details put into this ring are amazing. I don't just recommend Gabrielle I highly recommend her. She is wonderful to work with and very accommodating and keeps you informed on your product.

  24. Lindsay Greene

    The ring was perfect! It arrived early and I was very impressed with the the professionalism and personalized touch that she sent with it. He absolutely loves it!

  25. akjacobson3

    My fiancé and I love this ring! I fits perfectly. When it first arrived, the two outer bands were quite dark, as dark as the thicker center band. Over the past few weeks, though, the outer bands have lightened to a brighter silver, which is a beautiful contrast to the darker center band. We couldn't be happier.

  26. Lauren Leopold

    This ring is beautiful! I love it! Not to mention how nice she is:)

  27. Lauren Z

    Beautiful ring! We love it! Thank you so much for your prompt service

  28. Leslie Harvey

    This ring was amazing. It is even better in person and the inscription on the inside was very well done! Thank you!

  29. Jensen Sutta

    Fantastic product, excellent customer service and communication. I'm a very pleased customer and would not hesitate to recommend Maggi (and the ring) to others.

  30. Kylene Toney

    Gabrielle was extremely personable and easy to work with. I had a tight time-frame and she got the ring done on time without a flaw!

  31. Jennifer Arend

    This ring is beautiful! And my future husband loves it!

  32. HairPuller3

    My husband loves his ring!! Exactly what we wanted. Good communication and easy transaction. Highly recommended! Very friendly and will definitely be purchasing more products. Thank you sooo much!!

  33. Melissa Morgan

    The ring is exactly what he wanted.

  34. Michael Colon

    I can't even begin to describe how happy my wife and I are with this ring. We were looking for a right handed ring as a gift to me for our 8 year wedding anniversary. I'll admit that even though looking at pictures I loved them, not trying it on and holding it in my hand before purchasing made me nervous. It fits perfectly. The weight is perfect. It looks more amazing in person. You will not be disappointed. Gabrielle is an extremely talented ring smith (is that a thing?), and you can tell she actually cares about forging her products, not just making a profit. You should stop looking for the perfect ring and order from her.

  35. Mike Ennis

    I Love It!! Couldn't Be Happier.
    Thanks Again.

  36. hilts213

    This ring is simply beautiful. It's masculine and extremely unique. The quality is amazing. Plus the artist took a personal interest in us from the time we placed our order. We feel like she is a dear friend now. This is only our first purchase and def not our last.

  37. Hannah Henderson-Fox
