This a diagrammatic representation of a deoxyribonucleic acid molecule made into the form of a ring.  More specifically, it is a representation of normal B-DNA, as first described by Watson and Crick and having a right-handed helix.  There is also a heart version here.  If you'd like a representation of Z-DNA, which forms a left-handed helix, go here.

This is a US ring size 6, which is 0.65 inches or 16.5 mm inside diameter.  This also comes in a US size 3.5, a US size 5, a US size 5.5, a US size 7, a US size 7.5, a US size 7.75, a US size 8 and a US size 9.  Other sizes are created upon request, just click the contact designer button on the right hand side of the page.

Oh! I see I see. Hmmmm... Maybe I'll redesign this so it has 0.8 mm cross bars and 1.2 mm rails. Or maybe I can make the crossection on the inside where the rails intersect a little thicker without changing the outward appearance. One of those two methods or both combined will make it much stronger. I don't mind spending the extra time on this design because lots of people love this design. :) James to @alysania

@UniverseBecoming I can't see a weak spot and it doesn't seem to be just one spot where it's bending. It's really a combination of the lovely delicate design, me being not-so-delicate, and the malleability of pure silver. Seems to happen if I'm carrying something heavy (heavy grocery bags) where the ring gets flattened a little (ovoid instead of a perfect circle).

Hi Alysania, I was just thinking again about your comment since a customer referred to it today. I'm wondering now if you might have gotten a bad print. It looks ok in your photo, but I'm wondering if there might be a weak spot somewhere along the band that is causing a problem. Can you take a picture of the spot where it is bending? My versions that I have are not so easy to bend so it has me wondering now. Thanks. James To @alysania

@UniverseBecoming, 14.48mm inside diameter is correct. Thank you!

@Jarrah Hi Jarrah! Yep! I can do it! So, we're talking 14.48 mm or 0.569 inches in inside diameter? Correct? Let me know and I'll make that for you. :)

@UniverseBecoming this is a gorgeous ring! I want to give one to my girlfriend, but she has very petite fingers. Are you able to do one in size 3.5?

@alysania Great! I'm glad you like it! :D Yeah, it's fragile. I wanted to make it as feminine as possible. Nice picture! :) Thanks for posting it and thanks for your comments. :)

REALLY happy with how this came out. I ordered premium silver and found that I have to be pretty careful with it - the ring is really delicate and the premium silver can bend and become misshapen if you're not careful. It is gorgeous though, and no one believes that it was 3d printed. I might get another ring in one of the steel options for stability, even though the premium silver looks spectacular.
