When you’re looking to buy a silver coin ring from Silver State Foundry, you may have questions about price.
We often hear statements like:
“I saw an ad for the same thing for $39.00”
"I ordered a ring 5 weeks ago and I still haven't received it."
"I saw a guy at the flea market making these for $50."
So here's what makes us the right choice over the “other guys” who claim to make high-quality coin jewelry for lower prices.
With The Other Guys, You Get What You Pay For - Not Much!
Let’s talk about the “other guys” for a minute. Sites such as Coinspeso and MorganCoinRing offer Morgan silver dollar and other coin rings at ridiculously low prices, some as low as $35 to $50.
These are scam sites. They take your money and you never receive anything.They pop up, least a week or two until there are a bunch of complaints, they then disappear and reappear under a new name. In the off-chance that you do receive a ring from them, it will turn your finger green because they don’t use real silver.
These scammers even steal photos from real businesses – including us! – and claim that’s what they're making.
Then there are the amateur hobbyists who will actually send you a ring. Most of these guys use poor quality coins without much detail left. You might be able to tell it was once a coin, but just as likely not.
They keep their prices low by using worn coins that we in the trade call ‘junk silver’ because the coin is only worth the silver it contains and nothing more.
Next there are the experienced hobbyists who work out of their garage or basement. Some of them make good rings, but many do not.
And even with the good ones, quality control is lacking and what you get can be hit-or-miss. Their professionalism can be lacking while we provide top-notch customer service, ensuring a smooth buying experience.
When you buy from a low cost guy, the process isn’t always that straightforward. Most take weeks to fulfill their orders. And many of them will charge you more for shipping, resizing, refinishing and any number of other things.
Quality Jewelry Made In The USA With A Great Purchase Experience
So how are we different? Well...
All of our jewelry is made-to-order, nothing off-the-shelf so that each piece is as unique as the individual who wears it.And we hand-select each silver coin for our rings, looking for crisp details, intact reeds and visible years. We source all our coins from reputable dealers and the price we pay for the coin itself is often more than the other guys are charging for their *finished rings*.
Our turnaround time at Silver State Foundry is 2-3 business days, except for pieces which require a coin to be specially ordered. We aim for you to have your ring on your finger in about a week – or less – from ordering.
Our shipping is fast and free...we understand the excitement of purchasing something and receiving it quickly. We strive for you to have that instant gratification.
And when it comes to quality control, nothing leaves our studio unless it is something we’d wear ourselves. Our staff is proud to sport our rings and often get asked about them when they post pictures on their own social media.
Our process isn’t left up to chance – we use a 20-point checklist and four sets of eyes check every piece, from coin selection to production to finishing and packaging. And that’s why our return rate is under 1% – an unheard of level of quality, both in terms of general ecommerce and specifically for handmade jewelry.
And if your ring doesn’t have the perfect fit, we happily accept free resizing for life.
Your purchase doesn’t carry any of the risk that you would get from other vendors. Wear your ring for a few weeks and if you don’t love it, send it back within 60 days for a full refund. Rest assured, your satisfaction and peace of mind is one of our top priorities.
Other sites out there will nickel-and-dime you on these extras and that’s simply not how we do things at Silver State Foundry. If you would like to hear from our customers themselves, we invite you to read our many 5-star reviews from our happy jewelry-wearers.
In this value-conscious world we live in now, we understand that you don’t want to overpay for a ring. But when you purchase from Silver State Foundry, you’re getting more than just a piece of jewelry; you’ll be wearing a true, handmade work of art that is a beautiful heirloom for your future generations.
Our studio is located in the USA in downtown Reno, NV. All of our work is done in-house – by hand – so you feel pride in knowing that you’re supporting a Veteran-owned American small business.
