@EC_COMMANDO there is a picture of the glossy sterling silver ring up in the gallery
July 20, 2014, 3:51 am
One more question, I have not seen any picture(s) of the glossy sterling silver ring. I did look up sterling silver ring on google search for images, and it seemed very shiny and in a way "girly" for how shinny and stuff it was. Does anyone have some images?
July 20, 2014, 3:03 am
@EC_COMMANDO yeah the missing number was a problem when I initially uploaded the model but it was fixed a long time ago, so rest assured that it is accurate now. After production (which can be around 2 weeks) US shipping can take anywhere from 1-5 days depending on which service you pick (ranging from $5 to $15) for more info check here:
July 20, 2014, 2:17 am
I see now that I did get the meaning of the numbers wrong, they are supposed coordinates, not a date, sorry.
July 20, 2014, 12:11 am
Hello, I am highly interested in the the Sterling Silver glossy ring, however I did see one customer that was somewhat unhappy that it wasn't entirely accurate with the game (Missing the ninth day of the month and year) I just wanted to know if you have gotten the "Perfected" version yet? Also would like to know, I live in Oregon, U.S.A how long would it take to shift and how much would the cost be? Thank you very much.
July 19, 2014, 11:57 pm
Got it today the quality is great thank you @robo3687
July 5, 2014, 5:47 pm
Ring can be ordered only with the phrase sic parvis magna?
May 19, 2014, 8:35 pm
@robo3687 Yeah got it today ! Very good work. Excellent quality. Order placed on March 7th, production finished and ring shipped on March 28th, delivred on April 1st. Thank you :)
April 1, 2014, 9:09 pm
@Antotox shapeways haven't notified me of any problems and Polished Silver usually takes around 2 weeks from order time to delivery, so everything should be fine. You can contact their customer support directly via the link at the bottom of the page if you're still worried. Unfortunately that's about all I can do to help as I don't actually have anything to do with the actual production/shipping of items.
March 17, 2014, 12:06 am
@robo3687 Is there a problem with the production ? My ring ( #399094 ) in polished silver is "in production" since 3 days.
March 16, 2014, 9:43 pm
Got it today and loved it. Thank you :)
January 21, 2014, 9:32 pm
@MinoTheMad the polished sterling silver should be back up and available now...sorry for the inconvenience :)
January 17, 2014, 12:50 pm
@MinoTheMad it will be back very soon...hopefully in the next few days, keep an eye out for it.
January 16, 2014, 10:36 pm
Hello there, I'd love to purchase this ring in Sterling Silver Glossy.. Is this option still available?
January 16, 2014, 10:15 pm
@privatepilot29 you can use a small needle or some tweezers to pick the support material out
November 18, 2013, 9:58 pm
How do you get the particles in the letters out
November 18, 2013, 9:32 pm
Its really amazing, the quality is great :D thanks a lot
November 15, 2013, 10:43 pm
@Fmorasco1 they're generally pretty accurate....sometimes they'll even come quicker....the last thing i ordered was shipped and arrived 2 days before it's "estimated" shipping date
November 13, 2013, 11:22 pm
Wear ring. Explore!
November 13, 2013, 9:46 pm
Hey Robo... Just ordered U3 stainless steel ! Scheduled to ship on Nov. 27... Are the estimated shipping dates usually accurate?
November 11, 2013, 2:51 am
Got the ring today, it looks awsome.
October 24, 2013, 10:50 am
@empathnyte Couldn't find any in the craft store, was about to start looking online but that looks perfect. Cheers :) Love the ring, looks authentically aged and not a single imperfection :D
October 18, 2013, 5:03 pm
@Beta13 I just gotten my ring and am using this: It's pretty much like the leather strap I got with my Collector's Edition ring, except slightly sturdier. If you can find it in your craft store, go for it, delivery took a tad longer than I expected though.
October 18, 2013, 2:50 pm
My stainless steel ring is on schedule to arrive tomorrow! Just need to get some leather cord from the craft store and I'm good to go :) Very excited XD
October 15, 2013, 7:12 pm
@empathnyte Yea something was attached to it, some sort of a nub to handle it with when sand blasting the ring. So I guess the only way to get rid of it is to grind it off. I just put the knot over that part of the ring anyways.
October 15, 2013, 3:49 am
@WARDOG325 Mine has that too...I think that's what that is. Is it kind of rough but smooth at that one part?
October 15, 2013, 3:40 am
I got this ring in today. It's a nice looking ring and all but thers a big grind mark on the ring at the end of the word parvis, kinda not happy about that but overall good looking ring
October 11, 2013, 4:17 pm
Gotten my ring and I'm pretty impressed with it overall. Compared to the ring I got from the Collector's Edition, it definitely has a much more wearable weight to it, being stainless steel and all. Comparing my ring to the stainless steel picture, I'm not sure if it's the lighting but mine doesn't look as "grey-like" and has more of a bronze-like tint to it. Also the inside, it looks more rusted. I'm not too picky of it, but wished it looked more like the picture.
October 7, 2013, 4:52 pm
oh this is a runescape ring o ok
August 3, 2013, 12:53 pm
I just received my ring in the mail. I am so pleased! It is a beautiful peace that I can either wear as a ring or put on a strap and use as a necklace. Great stuff!
July 17, 2013, 6:32 pm
Hello I am very interested robo3687 Drake ring Stainless Steel = $ 25 and buy it right away gutaria me, but I would like to know how we could coordinating follow us for the shipping because I am from Chile and I really want to. please respond as soon as possible to buy it
May 28, 2013, 8:42 pm
Can I ask one thing to have a parameter, how many copies have been produced approximately, since it is a product so popular, I'd like to really understand a single product popular how many copies are sold?
May 17, 2013, 5:40 pm
@Estel the sterling silver glossy version is indeed shiny. for a man i'd say the best option is the stainless steel one, its the most accurate to the appearance in the game, plus there's obviously the cost factor.
May 13, 2013, 9:33 am
Hi robo3687, I would like to buy this great ring. But it's hard for me to decide between the sterling silver glossy or stainless steel. The normal U3 sterling silver version isn't avalaible anymore? Is the glossy version very shining or some kind of matt? I'm not sure if the glossy version is good for a man. What do you think? Is there a big difference between the silver version and the game version? Hope for your answer.
May 13, 2013, 8:34 am
Received mine today and I'm very pleased with it! Was worth the wait and looks so much better than the collectors edition.
March 1, 2013, 8:28 pm
I mean the u2 and u1 version or this
February 27, 2013, 1:47 pm
Hey Which looks better, the u3 version or this!! In Stainless steel
February 27, 2013, 1:44 pm
Just received it today and it is very nice. Just like the pictures, I must say its very well done.
February 20, 2013, 4:46 am
I recieved my order and may i say.. it looks exactly like nate's ring. Well done guys!

me lo traes hasta argentina?
January 15, 2013, 3:02 am
Hello robo, can i have different letters from the inside ones? I would like to insert the word Kapzell.
January 12, 2013, 5:11 pm
why is this ring so popular? I don't get it.
December 7, 2012, 6:47 pm
@jlevine this is pretty cool!
November 27, 2012, 4:30 pm

October 15, 2012, 5:56 pm
Ohhh great dude I love you then xDDD thx for the quick answer
September 14, 2012, 3:00 am
it should get to costa rica okay, even though the item is small the box they ship it in is usually a big enough size to not get lost...
September 14, 2012, 2:21 am
forgot these guys xDDD "????"
September 14, 2012, 2:19 am
Would it take too long if I want it to be brought to Costa Rica... I really really want the stainless steel one it looks amazing =D... I'm new at this so I'm a little afraid it might get lost even with the box... since it's so small, anyway, awesome product dude
September 14, 2012, 2:18 am
Mine arrived today. Highly recommend. Thank you!
September 4, 2012, 5:26 am
The pictures don't do this justice. It looks amazing in person.
August 29, 2012, 1:08 am
@Elours: yep it's always available for purchase and made to order...
August 16, 2012, 12:35 am
I'm new to this site and would just like to make sure this is still available to purchase?
August 15, 2012, 7:58 pm
@robo3687 Can i pay this ring depositing in your account number?
July 16, 2012, 8:55 pm
Can i deposit in an account number?
July 16, 2012, 8:52 pm
Does this come with the necklace ?
May 9, 2012, 5:38 am
Hey just order two of your lovely rings, one of them is for my other half's 21st birthday, just wondering if you think it will arrive to the uk before the 16th of May, if not then that's ok, i will just have to give him an IOU lol
April 6, 2012, 5:55 pm
@MattAlexNewman: the ring doesn't have any tinting to the engraving, but it is naturally a bit darker due to it being unable to be polished after printing... the engraving is darker on the stainless steel version and is lighter on the sterling silver glossy version. so if you want it closest to the game youd probably be better off with the stainless steel one...hope that helps
March 31, 2012, 3:36 am
Hey There, I was thinking of ordering either the stainless steel ring or the silver ring but was wondering, on the official ring and the one in the game, the letters engraved on the inside and out seem to have a sort of black tint to them, as if filled in with some. Weather this is just how deep the engraving is Im unsure, but it does just look like some sort of paint has been put into the engraving or something. And then my problem.... finally. Well in some of the photos it looks like the engraving is tinted, where in some other it doesn't. I guess my question is, is the ring plain, or does it have some sort of paint or color on the side of it? I just want it to be as accurate to the one in the game as possible :) Many thanks
March 27, 2012, 9:57 pm
I got it yesterday! Thank u so much. Super fast delivery tracked with UPS. Amazing product looks exactly like the one in the game so happy with it :-)))
March 21, 2012, 6:35 pm
March 17, 2012, 10:00 am
I've just ordered mine! can't wait! :-) Can someone please advise on where to get a similar neck strap to make it look as close as possible to the one in explorer's edition?
March 5, 2012, 1:46 am
Thanks for the help Robo!!! And thanks for this great object!
February 20, 2012, 4:33 am
the turnaround is usually 14 days so it should get there on time
February 20, 2012, 4:28 am
I ordered mine today will it really get here to the US on March 7? I ordered stainless steel...I'm just anxious to have it.
February 20, 2012, 4:10 am
it should look fine :)
February 19, 2012, 8:54 am
I may go with the stainless steel since it's cheaper you think it'll look very bad if i wear it with the silver chain that i have (that i never take off!)?
February 19, 2012, 8:30 am
well the silver glossy certainly does look very nice, and would last the longest of them all...but if it's accuracy you're after, then the Stainless steel would be the way to go as it already looks a little aged....those 2 are the best options so from there it's personal preference...
February 19, 2012, 8:17 am
Thanks...and one last question which material personally would be the best looking material to buy, the silver or the stainless steel? Sorry for bothering and thanks!! I may be ordering tomorrow :)
February 19, 2012, 8:08 am
@andyd_16 well they are both of equal quality, but this one is the more game accurate of the 2...
February 19, 2012, 7:52 am
Is this ring better than the uncharted 1 and 2 model?
February 19, 2012, 7:37 am
managed to find a decent leather cord on ebay that was part of another piece of cheap jewellery. I received it this morning, torn the crap off and fastened it around the ring :D

January 29, 2012, 6:54 pm
Brilliant! I bought the stainless Steel version and Im completely happy with it. Excellent quality and looks authentic. There were a couple of small residual white flecks (from the print process) in the letters but were easily blown out or picked out with a tooth pic leaving it looking perfect. Now I need to find a leather cord!
January 23, 2012, 5:15 pm
If you're in Australia, Spotlight has a couple of cords to choose from. I got mine for $2 and it's great!
January 22, 2012, 11:41 pm
I echo what mshan said, can anyone recommend a good leather cord? I can only find rounded ones which wouldn't work for this.
January 21, 2012, 4:55 pm
technically thats not a "problem" and is just left over support material from the printing process. Sometimes it doesnt all get removed when the models are cleaned, but yeah its just a case of picking them out with a small pointy object like a needle as you've done.
January 19, 2012, 10:26 pm
and I see someone just yesterday had the same problem. I gotta learn to read before I post.
January 19, 2012, 7:47 pm
Got mine yesterday, the rind is great. There is some weird tan/whitish stuff inside the letters. I was only able to get them out with a small sewing needle. There is still some that is giving me a hard time. Anyone else have this problem? any solutions? Maybe i'll leave it and pretend its ancient sand from Ubar.
January 19, 2012, 7:46 pm
I just got mine in stainless steel in the mail today and its even more awesome than i was expecting it would be! Anyone have any tips on how to get the remaining tiny sand particles out from the engravings though. Ive been picking at them with a needle but i cant get to the ones on the inside.
January 18, 2012, 7:41 pm
taky bych ho moc chtel napis me pls na e-mail nevim jak to tady maji s tema platbama potreboval bych poradit a jeste se te na neco zeptat zatim dik
January 17, 2012, 9:02 pm
Can somebody tell me where to buy a cheap but still close looking as in te Uncharted games - leather cord for this ring?
January 17, 2012, 5:43 pm
Can someone post up a video up on youtube with the silver glossy finish of the ring please??? I hope someone answers
January 17, 2012, 5:14 am
pro ff70ea41bc: Do Ceske republiky neni problem. Sam sem ho objednaval nekdy na konci lisopadu a do Vanoc byl tady :-)

January 5, 2012, 2:21 pm
Mine just entered production! How long til I get it now? I'm excited!!
January 4, 2012, 3:34 pm
The sterling silver ring is amazing. Thank you so much.!/TinyEm7/status/152992497163976704/photo/1
December 31, 2011, 6:02 am
UPDATE on those of you looking for leather cords. I just ordered mine from They are very fair on shipping and the laces and cords come in so many colors. I personally went with the color "chocolate".
December 21, 2011, 5:58 pm
I had been searching for a replica ring from the first time i played drakes fortune.. this is fantastic! just ordered the stainless steel version.. well done robo3687 you found my weakness and poked it hard lol and im glad the inscription is the right one
December 20, 2011, 1:44 am
Oh by the way, for those who are looking for leather cords, I would go to A.C. Moore (look in the beading section), you will find many colors of leather cords :)
December 18, 2011, 8:21 am
Ok. So after reading everyone's review here on the ring, I just ordered it! I am soooo excited. My husband, (51) who is NOT A GAMER, got SUPER INVOLVED with U3 that he got me for Christmas! He plays it day and night and without any help from me, is tackling the game. I thought it would be a fun gift for him. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I'm sure it's going to look awesome!!!!
December 18, 2011, 8:18 am
it just arrived yesterday and its the best ring i´ve ever seen . I took stainless steel and I think its the most similar one to the game . the ring has a antic touch .. im so happpy
December 15, 2011, 7:30 pm
it just arrived today, looks absolutely amazing, went for the Stainless Steel and love the effect, can't wait to buy a cord and give it to my fella for Christmas, he's going to flip :D Thank you loads!
December 13, 2011, 4:52 pm
The ring just arrived and looks really much better than the one from collectors edition (PS3). Sterling silver looks awesome.
December 13, 2011, 4:21 pm
I'm a bit confused. I've ordered this ring in Sterling Silver and got it today, but it looks more like the Sterling Silver Glossy one from picture 6/8 (the one with the comparison between old and new Stainless Steel). Is it possible that the pictures have the wrong labels...? Because mine doesn't really look like the one on photo 4/8. It's not as 'shiny'. Idk. But I love the ring either way. Great job! Was definitely worth the money.
December 12, 2011, 4:01 pm
@BetterNateThanNever : Thx , I think I´m going to buy a leather cord. I´m a boy so it´s the best decision , I think . And I hope it´ll be here soon . I can´t wait much longer . Where do you live, because you said it took just a couple of days ;D
December 11, 2011, 2:37 pm
so how long does it usually take to make? thinking of buying the silver ring
December 10, 2011, 9:21 pm
@22Vengeance44 Hi. I just have a thin brown ribbon from a fabric shop near where I live. You can get leather cord necklaces as well. If you want one that is close to the one Nate has then I would get a leather cord. I'm a girl and thought leather might look a little too masculine. Ha ha. Also, ribbon is cheaper. As for postage time, as you mentioned in your other comment, it does take a while because the ring is specially printed and created for you when you order it. Mine took a couple of days once it had been shipped to get to where I live.
December 10, 2011, 2:04 am
i ordered it 2-3 weeks before and it still isnt here :( how long does it ake usually?
December 9, 2011, 2:42 pm
@BetterNateThanNever : wich necklace would you recommend me? i mean the material . it should look like the one in the game or similiar thx ;D
December 9, 2011, 2:41 pm
Just received my ring in the post. It's great. I'm wearing it on a ribbon around my neck right now.
December 7, 2011, 4:17 pm
@mauriziocorso77 : i just bought it ;D of course i´m going to wear it around my neck ,who won´t? thx for help
November 30, 2011, 5:56 pm
@22Vengeance44 Yes it is stainless steel. The inscription isn't perfect and the ring seems very worn out, so it's basically an exact copy of the ring in-game. Having said that, if you were to wear it as a ring on your finger, I'd go Sterling Silver. But Stainless steel as a necklace.
November 29, 2011, 6:39 am
@mauriziocorso77 : is it stainless steel?
November 28, 2011, 2:56 pm
My ring just arrived (I ordered on the day the new version came out) and it is indeed the new version. Thanks @robo3687
November 28, 2011, 5:22 am
how long does it take to get to germany ? wich material is the best? ( to see the details or to be similar to the one in the game ) and is every detail exactly like the ones in the game ? ,,, thanks ;D
November 27, 2011, 7:23 pm
@jvsnmz Hi, I ordered mine the day it came out as well as it's still on it's way so i don't know if mine got printed correctly or not. Have you contacted Shapeways and if so, what's going to be done about it?
November 27, 2011, 12:36 am
hey i love ur ring and i was wondering, is the silver one fragile? if i wore it frequently would it get dented or bent? what would you reccomend for a good ring that looks good while being sturdy, silver or steel? thanks!
November 26, 2011, 4:08 am
@jvsnmz: sorry to hear about that happening, i suggest you contact shapeways about it. My guess is that there was a short period after I was told the new version was available where it hadn't been updated in their system and as such the wrong one was printed for your order. It's not something I would have expected to happen so I apologise for that. Shapeways support should be able to give you a better answer on the situation and should be able to help sort it out.
November 26, 2011, 2:19 am
I ordered when you changed the dots and the inscription and I asked if it would be updated. You said yes, but it came today withh dots instead of squares and with the old inscription. I didn't pay for that, what can I do now?
November 25, 2011, 3:38 pm
@UnchartedAngel: payment can be done via credit card or paypal
November 25, 2011, 5:26 am
@chinio: the stainless steel is $29 plus shipping and the other prices can be found in the drop down menu in the top right of this page.... el acero inoxidable es de $ 29 más gastos de envío y los precios se pueden encontrar en el menú desplegable en la parte superior derecha de esta página
November 25, 2011, 5:25 am
@shadowarrior2010: they're always in stock, and i the stainless steel is not easily bent.
November 25, 2011, 5:22 am
i've now uploaded a picture of the new rings and the januarie inscription.....................
November 25, 2011, 5:22 am
How does the payment? Because Iam from Germany
November 22, 2011, 6:42 pm
me interesaria saber que precio tiene el de acero inoxidable y el de los demas.tengo intenciones de comprarlo como hago?
November 21, 2011, 8:36 pm
i would like to know an opinion, is this "stainless steel" easily bend? if i mistakely step on it for example
November 21, 2011, 8:08 pm
Robo i wold like to know if you have more of those "stainless rings" in stock
November 21, 2011, 6:44 pm
If you want most authentic to the game. I'd go normal sterling silver. As the one in the game is made from silver. And it's more accurate compared to the glossy version.
November 20, 2011, 10:46 am
I have just ordered this (in stainless steel) as a Christmas present for me from my parents. I want an Uncharted Christmas! I'll be asking for U3 as well. I hope the order goes through ok. I've never used this site before and do not usually order things from overseas (I am in the UK). I actually like this ring more than the official one from the Collector's Edition. Good job!
November 19, 2011, 3:16 pm
thank you :-)
November 19, 2011, 3:04 pm
well the detail comes out the very best in the sterling silver and its nice and shiny (who doesn't like shiny? but if you are after the antique look for the ring the best bet would be stainless steel as it prints with a nice finish that matches pretty close to how it appears in the game...
November 19, 2011, 9:22 am
same, no idea which material to choose. what would you recommend robo?
November 19, 2011, 8:11 am
could you upload more photos pls. I love this ring but i dont know what material to choose. Thank you
November 17, 2011, 8:27 pm
that's quite alright
November 16, 2011, 2:48 am
Lol, it's very very weird, because when I checked I swear it wasn't there, sorry it have might been my Internet connection, it was very unstable today, since it was raining, like it was the last day, you know what I mean, :) sorry!
November 16, 2011, 2:27 am
I did answer your questions tommy, down there just above where you asked them
November 16, 2011, 2:00 am
Hey, what about my questions? I asked you some help down there, can you take a look? I'm just feeling forever alone right here! ;) no problems!
November 16, 2011, 1:45 am
Awesome, I ordered it! Thanks so much, robo. You really do rock for making these available. I mean, who wants to pay $100 for the collector's editon to get the ring? :P
November 15, 2011, 11:50 pm
@JaclynLuvsMuse: lol, it's really no trouble at all, it's what I'm here for... and yes if you order now you'll get Januarie and the diamonds.
November 15, 2011, 9:48 pm
You are going to want to kill me, but just so we are all clear--if we order the ring now, it will come with the diamonds and Januarie inscriptions? I really cannot thank you enough for your patience. You've been very pleasant to communicate with. But you sure do get a lot of questions! ;)

@jvsnmz: yep it'll have squares. Normally I wouldn't have put the update up until I had my prints but they're not set to arrive until the 30th of November which cuts it a bit close to the cutoff date for Christmas orders. But rest assured that proper pics will be up once I get the prints.
November 15, 2011, 12:38 pm
So, if I order now it'll come with the squares instead of dots? It would be nice to have an actual picture of the rings with the squares besides the render image.
November 15, 2011, 12:25 pm
extra note to let you know that the final version of the ring is now available. Check the description for more info.
November 15, 2011, 7:12 am
@Tommy.becerra: the weather shouldn't have any affect on the rings so it's really up to you as far as which version you get. typically the time from order to arrival is around 14 days for stainless steel. for more info on the shipping check here: the update with the new inscription is not available yet, but will be coming in the next day or so, and I'll make it very clear in the description when it's available.
November 15, 2011, 5:59 am
i just read all the comments, and i saw it has worldwide mail, with UPS, ok, but i live in Rio, and its very humid here... which version, would the same time, the most accurate with the game, and the most suitabble for the weather... How many time for the shipping to here, and do you have any ideia, how many does it cost, i mean, the shipping. And one last question, is it now Januaire, with the correct cordinate, and whats that diamond point? Thank you very much, i see it is not easy to manage all this,
November 13, 2011, 5:17 pm
hey, im was just wondering if you send it worldwide, because, i live in brazil, and it would be awesome, if i could have one of these, thanks
November 13, 2011, 4:15 pm
:D So excited to get a 100% accurate ring from UC3! As soon as the change has been made i'm going to be ordering a silver ring, this is the most game accurate i believe.
November 12, 2011, 7:27 am
Whew! I was still able to can my order. I will go ahead and wait for the update. Im sorry that you just found out the update too! That must be frustrating. Guess Naughty Dog lied to you. lol
November 11, 2011, 7:19 pm
@JaclynLuvsMuse: I understand the frustration, I only found out that they were different 2 days ago myself. In a way the current version is still accurate though, as the details on it (JAN instead of Januarie) were straight from the guy who actually modeled the ring at Naughty Dog for the first 2 games. If you would like the Januarie version though, it may not be too late to contact Shapeways and cancel so that you can reorder in a few days after the update.
November 10, 2011, 11:06 pm
Well, gee, it would have been nice to know that there was another inscription problem before I ordered. I was under the impression that it was 100% accurate. Too bad I ordered it. I should have waited.
November 10, 2011, 8:53 pm
that would be stainless steel....but that was after some sanding...the newer finish of the stainless steel is much shinier (see other pics)
November 10, 2011, 10:53 am
By the way, what ring material is used in the very first photo?
November 10, 2011, 10:40 am
@mauriziocorso77: yep one size only...and that size is a US size 10... and it hopefully shouldn't be any more than 3 or 4 days till the update...i just want to make sure there'll be no issues printing them....
November 10, 2011, 10:21 am
I have fixed the interior inscription and have ordered a test print. I also changed the dots on the outside to be diamonds as per Uncharted 3. Once I know the model is printable (ie once it goes into production, in 3-4 days) I will update the model in this listing for order. At that time I will upload a 3d render of the ammended inscription, with photos to follow when the test print arrives. I will keep you all updated in these comments. The rings will remain available in their current form until I update them.
November 10, 2011, 10:05 am
@robo3687 Ah thanks so much! Can't wait to order the new version! :) Are we talking days or weeks? Am I right to assume this is one size only?
November 10, 2011, 10:00 am
Thanks for your help - absolutely love the design and can't wait to order!
November 10, 2011, 9:44 am
@mauriziocorso77: I've uploaded a picture of the bronze to the gallery, didn't realise I'd forgotten it. There isn't, however, a picture of the 'silver' version...only the 'silver glossy' one. If you check the material page for silver ( ) you can see the difference between the 2. My guess is that the plain 'silver' one would look a bit more antique than the glossy one.
November 10, 2011, 9:38 am
Sorry for my ignorance, but how come there are no "Antique bronze matte" or "silver" photos of the ring? I only see stainless steel and silver glossy.
November 10, 2011, 9:24 am
I'm wokring on updating the ring now, and it should be ready in time to have it before christmas. Check Shapeways holiday planning page here: for more details....
November 10, 2011, 8:26 am
I will order as soon as the change has been made. Hopefully in time for xmas.
November 10, 2011, 8:04 am
Would this arrive in time for Xmas if I order soon! I'm interested in the changes you'll make (Jan to Januarie)
November 9, 2011, 11:21 pm
At this point in time it says Jan. I am planning on changing it to Januarie once I can get enough clear shots of it from the game...
November 8, 2011, 10:37 pm
November 8, 2011, 9:18 pm
Also would like to know if it will be changed to "29 Januarie" before I buy
November 8, 2011, 9:18 pm
Does the inside of the ring read "29 Jan" or "29 Januarie" like in the game?
November 8, 2011, 5:09 am
@Rachaelbat: eBay would be your best bet, try searching for 'flat leather cord'
November 7, 2011, 3:48 am
Does anyone know where I can buy a strap? I'll be ordering the ring soon and would like to be able to put them together when it arrives. Thanks! :)
November 7, 2011, 3:40 am
Oh thanks for the reply:) I can't wait to get it, I already bought a leather stap, and now I just need the ring to come in the mail :D
November 6, 2011, 4:13 pm
@BrandonKun : the 14 days is for the entire process from order to arrival, and the actual manufacturing time is only a portion of that, the rest is on shipping etc. @JaclynLuvsMuse: no worries, hopefully everything will go smoothly from here on....
November 6, 2011, 2:59 am
Thanks robo! I must admit that I am upset--with Shapeways, not you--but I'm happy that the issue is resolved. Just gotta wait for the dang email! Hehe
November 6, 2011, 1:39 am
Does it really take 14days for the ring to be made -.-
November 5, 2011, 9:35 pm
Hey guys, there was an issue with a few orders late yesterday (only 4 as far as I can tell) in that the computer was rejecting them while still printing other rings....I contacted shapeways and they told me that those of you that had theirs 'rejected' were emailed a coupon code and that you will be contacted when it is alright for you to reorder... I apologise for any inconvenience caused, I freaked out myself when the 'rejected' emails came through. But everything should be on it's way to being fixed now and as I said, shapeways will contact you when you can reorder. I should also mention this appears to be an isolated thing and that it is still safe to order the rings.
November 4, 2011, 10:06 pm
I hope so, too.
November 4, 2011, 7:36 pm
Maunz, I had the same problem too! I wonder what on earth is going on. I'm sure robo3687 will help us out! ;)
November 4, 2011, 7:18 pm
I ordered the stainless version and today I got an email that the order is cancelled, because the wall is to thin. Why does it works for other customers and not for me?
November 4, 2011, 6:47 pm
@rdjr shapeways use UPS to ship their stuff worldwide and it's definitely trackable....
November 4, 2011, 9:49 am
im living in an asian country and was wondering if it comes in a resgistered parcel so i can track it online. as long as it is trackable ill place my order. thanks.
November 4, 2011, 9:43 am
@26333405d2 yep that's the silver glossy one in the bottom left
November 4, 2011, 4:48 am
Nevermind -- It apparently has. Cools! Placing my order now!
November 2, 2011, 3:44 pm
Has the coordinates issue been corrected yet? I'm itching to replace the pewter P.O.S. from the collector's edition with a stainless steel one. (Maybe silver if I want to be hardcore accurate to the game).
November 2, 2011, 3:43 pm
nope I don't make them, I created the original file, but shapeways manufactures and distributes them
October 28, 2011, 11:38 pm
sorry another question: do you make the rings yourself and do you have a couple of rings or do you make everyone his own
October 28, 2011, 6:50 pm
thank you much ive been searching a long time for this ring thanks also for fast answer :)
October 28, 2011, 6:44 pm
Since it would probably come from the Netherlands for you, I would expect it wouldn't take very long at all once it's made, and yes the numbers have all been fixed
October 28, 2011, 3:11 pm
two questions: how long will it take to ship it over to germany? are the numbers on the ring now fully correct or not?
October 28, 2011, 2:44 pm
Nope it doesn't come with it, but they shouldn't be too hard to find on eBay
October 23, 2011, 9:34 pm
I was wondering does the leather strap come with the ring? And if not do you know where I could find one?
October 23, 2011, 7:58 pm
Awesome. I'll be back to get one very soon then!! Love this ring :D
October 9, 2011, 8:24 pm
@beckles96 yep it's 100% fixed
October 7, 2011, 11:59 pm
Sooo... is the inscription fixed on this now? I'd really love to buy one some point soon, but obviously only when the problem's been fixed. :)
October 7, 2011, 8:25 pm
@Seabass you can double check with shapeways support but i'm fairly sure the stainless steel and silver versions don't have zinc in them. their material data sheets say that the stainless steel is a mix of stainless steel and bronze and that the silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper... again if you want to be extra sure i'd contact shapeways directly but you should be okay....
October 7, 2011, 1:48 am
I want to get this ring, thing is... I am allergic to Nickel. What one do you think I have the least problems with? I have been searching for about 2 years now for this ring, as soon as you reply I will order!!! Oh man I can't wait! (Does it come with the leather neck band?) Thank you in advance...
October 7, 2011, 12:02 am

October 7, 2011, 12:02 am
I think the one in the picture came from eBay, I honestly can't a search and see what you can find
October 6, 2011, 12:44 pm
Thank you ashlar. =) I have one final question before I purchase the ring. Where would be the best place to look for a leather cord as shown in the picture? =P
October 6, 2011, 12:33 pm
@TrueZarken I have both the Stainless Steel and Silver V1 rings. I haven't had any issues with the V1 showing any signs of surface rust. If you want to be safe though get the silver, it will age nicely as well, it's was quite shiny when I got mine.
October 3, 2011, 11:27 pm
no worries, always happy to help :)
September 30, 2011, 7:07 am
Thank you very much for the quick reply robo. :) If you're about to receive a 100% correct inscription one I will wait for that one then. Thank you very much for all this effort robo. :)
September 30, 2011, 6:52 am
@TrueZarken: well I'm not sure if the stainless steel would rust eventually or not, but I'd be pretty sure that the sterling silver one wouldn't rust... on another note, I received notice that my tests of the final version of the ring have been shipped and should arrive early next week., I will then have pictures of what the sterling silver ones look like. It will also mean that those of you who have been waiting for the 100% correct inscriptions will be able to order.
September 30, 2011, 5:35 am
I am curious as to which one you'd recommend if it is going to get wet a lot. I do a fair bit of swimming and there is considerable rain this time of year where I live and I don't want to buy it if it's going to be rusting a few weeks later. Anyway thank you in advance Kind regards
September 30, 2011, 3:41 am
I'll be looking at getting a silver version when you fix the numbers up. Already have 2 Explorers Rings. Love them
September 7, 2011, 10:44 pm
well i like the ring i think its better than the one in the collectors edition im getting that aswell but the problem is just the cordinates number but the product is amazing
August 17, 2011, 11:12 am
How can i cancel the order? i would like to cancel
August 17, 2011, 11:10 am
sorry you're disappointed, the coordinates on this ring were given to me by the modeler who created the ring for the original game. The coordinates you mentioned (with the 9) are on the ring that comes with the collectors edition of Uncharted 3. The ring you ordered will not come with the 9, so if this is a problem, you can simply cancel and wait for the updated version. It may be a little while though as I have a lot of other stuff going on at the moment.
August 17, 2011, 2:45 am
Im so so dissapointent with this i cant belive i ordered somehting that is wrong to the uncharted game
August 16, 2011, 9:28 pm
Ive just ordered this and im a bit dissapointed i checked the numbers at the back of the ring and it only says 32.79, thats wrong it should be 9.32.79, i hope when the ring gets here i got its correct.
