Brass Machine Gun Shell & Silver Ring

Recently, we had a gentleman stop by to purchase one of our Raincross pendants. He proudly showed us this ring he had made after his service as a soldier in a Special Forces unit in Afghanistan.

The ring is made from the brass casing of a machine gun shell. The jeweler cut the shell into strap that could be soldered onto a silver band. He finished it off with a rhinestone set into the primer opening. We think the design is very effective– simple, straighforward, gets the job done.

A High Caliber Ring!

Thank you to all the brave men and women serving and who’ve served in our Armed Forces. The difficult work, the sacrifices made in behalf of our great country are truly noble.
