William IV’s sovereign’s ring (left) and Queen Adelaide’s consort’s ring (right) - Rundell, Bridge, and Rundell, 1831.

Traditionally a new sovereign’s ring was slipped onto the finger of every British monarch during his/her coronation and became that monarch’s personal property; William IV’s ring has been used in every coronation since Edward VII’s in 1901 and has joined the rest of the imperial state regalia in the Tower of London.

Ace Ring Update

After a ridiculous delay (for which I’m sorry - life’s been weird lately) I found a place to print the ring design shown below.

I tested it in size 6, 7 and 8 and in 8 materials ranging from the basic plastic to black steel. I just need to wait for the place to actually print the rings and send them to me before I have any other news. 

Once the rings come (estimated delivery around March 8-10), I’ll abuse them to test the plastic and post the results.

Cheers all!
