I'm on vacation until December 1 and won't be able to make custom orders. Please come back after then, or PM with a description of what you want and I'll take care of it first week in December.
Please use this template to order a customized signet ring. I can add in initials to one of the other symbols you see here, or create a new symbol to your specifications. Please note that the ring and the impression that it makes are mirror images of each other - letters that look right in an impression come from a signet engraved backwards.
If you are designing your own symbol, for best results please draw within a 3/4" diameter circle, and keep all lines at least 0.040" wide. This is roughly equivalent to drawing with a dull pencil. If your idea doesn't meet these guidelines, please send a private message to verify that it is within material limits, as there are some tricks I can do to bend the design rules under certain conditions.
Caution: remove signet rings from your hand before using to make an impression. The ring will get hot. Please be careful to avoid burns when using hot wax.
Quality sealing wax

In some rare instances, Shapeways stainless steel rings have caused a reaction called "tea staining." This is a (not permanent) brown mark on the skin caused by a chemical reaction with the bronze binder. So far only one customer has reported this, and research shows that it depends on skin chemistry - some people always get it, most people never do. Some solutions for people concerned with this are coating the skin contact area with clear nail polish, gold plating, or getting the ring made in silver.
