These rings are really cool!!!  So, did you drill a hole into the quarter to insert the jeweler's saw into it?  How much UMPH did it take to cut the circle out, and how did you get it so even?  Thank you so much for sharing your technique with us!

I attempted this and made a halfway decent one (after breaking two silver quarters) It wasnt nice enough to give away. I did however get two nice rings from www.libertycoinrings.com

I asked for a deal and got it from them. My next task is to make a coffe table.

I have been making these type of coin ring for the past 25 years.  There are several ways of making them.  Those who know the secret arn't telling. Once the cat is out of the bag the uniqueness will be over.

i have to say.. i'm confused why you would dig up a years-old thread just to post that you won't tell the secret of something that the original post showed how to do..?

that said, i also make coin rings, and i actually made a youtube video tutorial showing how i make them (which is very similar to the OP's method). so some of us DO tell our "secrets" Wink

and i can tell you why i show my method, too. because there are two types of people who will want to watch it: 1) crafty people who are gonna want to try it themselves (and therefore wouldn't have bought one from me anyway), and 2) people who like jewelry but don't know anything about the processes and are curious (and who thus wouldn't be able to make their own anyway). so, i'm either being nice to like-minded people who wouldn't have bought this particular item from me whether or not i made a big deal about keeping secrets; or, i'm providing an interesting video that might pique a potential customer's interest. everybody wins.
