Truly Unique Rings

I'm already a huge fan of Etsy jewelers for engagement/wedding rings, and then I got a lead from Jocelyn.

This dude in Maine literally sends you an impression kit and then makes a mold from your fingerprint, which he turns into a ring. 

Here's what he says:

Searching for a truly unique wedding band? This is just what you were looking for. It is many things: unique, sentimental, custom, heirloom quality crafted, and you are completely involved in the making process.
I send you my Impression Kit in the mail. Once you receive it, imprint the entire length of your finger and/or your fianc├ęs finger separately. Then you mail that back to me. Once I receive it here in my studio in beautiful coastal Maine, I make a wax form from the impression material. Then utilizing the ancient lost wax casting process, I turn that impression into a metal ring utilizing gold or silver.
Maybe some day this ring gets passed down to your children--a family heirloom for sure. How romantic! Your lover touching you, holding your finger, always with you.
I would love to talk with you about this exciting process! Only available from Brent Williams Designs with such fine craftsmanship.

I'm glad you like them Sara! I've actually been in contact with the sellers (a husband and wife team, actually) and they're really nice people and extremely helpful.

I also found out that they're willing to do a ton of custom stuff for the people who can't find exactly what they want in a current listing. We're so excited to get ours ordered!

Duuuuude; this is AWESOME. I emailed Jess about it, and I emailed the guy for estimates, etc. Eeek! :)

Super cool. Thanks so much for passing this along. I'm super excited about ring "shopping" for the first time ever.

I've been planning on getting one of these rings for my fiance's wedding band! Probably the most special ring I've come across. I love Etsy!
