Metals

Your wedding rings are made from all recycled, United States milled precious metals. We hand fabricate your rings in our Boulder studio.

Hand fabrication is a process where we cut, form, forge and solder the stock that you order into a perfect fitting ring. We then finish the rings according to your specifications. We do not cast anything!
