Overall happy with the product received and the prompt shipping and handling. The packaging was a nice surprise as well. Only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the face was scratchy with an unfinished look. Perhaps that’s how it’s supposed to come, but having selected the “polished” version I would have thought it would have been cleaner on the face. I was leaning towards the rustic version so I’m okay with how it came, but keep that in mind if you’re looking for a clean unscratched surface this may not be the choice for you.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, they mean the world to us! It can be hard to get a perfectly mirror finish on a handmade product -- that said, we would love to adjust it for you or can happily switch it out for the patina version. you can email firstname.lastname@example.org - you having something you love is our top priority!
I got this for my fiancé and she loves it :) exactly as described/pictured. No complaints at all
I bought the brass one as a gift to my husband. I want to love this ring, and it does look awesome, but after owning it for only 3 days, my husband's finger is already green. I'm not sure if it's a brass "finish", but it does look like a finish is wearing off. I didn't think to check the reviews, since it seemed like everything is so well handmade and meant to "last a lifetime" - but now feeling like I should have. Such a bummer since I love so many of the other pieces.
Hi Rebecca, the ring is solid brass to it’s core - we don’t coat or plate anything that we make. Brass is a reactive metal, that’s what allows it to develop the patina that it’s so beloved for. Our brass is very clean - lead and nickel free. Greening is a pH response to a reactive metal, and it diminishes with wear - as your body and the metal acclimate to each other. That said, you are welcome to reach out and return an item you aren’t happy with, you can also consider the sterling option - which is a more stable material. Feel free to keep wearing the ring for a bit and decide, or send it back for refund or exchange as soon as your ready. Thanks!
I have ordered multiple items from studebaker but this purchase was my least favorite. I got the brass polished with my initials engraved. It didn’t look as good as my ID ring that I order here with my initials. However great quality and fit.
I got the work patina brass as a pinky ring. Just what I was looking for. Understated but classy and really well made. Comfortable and sized perfectly. Great work.
I've had plenty of questions about my silver signet with work patina, and I love it. The craftsmanship is apparent, and it really fits who I am. Great work!
Bought the polished brass ring and found that it was extremely well made for the price point. Got the polished silver ring and have to say pictures don't do it justice. If you're unsure about buying one, don't hesitate. These will last you a lifetime without the buyer's remorse of more expensive brands or rings made with cheaper materials.
I just recently got into wearing rings and other types of jewelry and often struggle to find pieces that I like but I loved this ring the second I saw it about 5 months ago and knew I had to have it and I do not regret my decision in the slightest! the quality is amazing and the staff was very friendly and helpful, I highly recommend this ring will likely be buying more in the near future
This is my 2nd purchase from Studebaker and I must say I am so impressed. This ring is literally perfect. It’s bold & beautiful. I can guarantee this will NOT be my last purchase from this amazing company.
The ring is a part of me now. The craftsmanship is top notch, quality is tangible and is one day going to be a keepsake in rememberance of me. A heirloom generational piece. Do yourself a favor a place the order.
I love it, I wanted a ring with my daughters' initials for a while now and couldn't find just the right one. The style is beautiful and this ring should last a lifetime, and can be an heirloom. I haven't had any brass jewelry in a long time and totally forgot about the material turning my finger green though! It may have been worth it to spend the extra on a silver ring. :(
I had some issues with FedEx and the customer service for Studebaker was great, very responsive and helpful! Great company, I would highly recommend. I took a star off for green finger. I would recommend a warning that for some people there could be a reaction and discoloration of skin.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I'm glad you love your ring :) As for the greening, it's a pH response some people see with brass and it is harmless. The good news is, if you keep wearing the ring your skin and the metal will acclimate and the response will dissipate! I would say 99% of people find that the greening goes away completely after a short period of time. Feel free to email if you need any more info!
I bought this ring to commemorate the arrival of our child. It is simple and beautiful. The patina has faded a bit, but i think it makes it better. The patina is more subtle now. There have been a few instances where it turns my finger slightly green, but it doesn't really bother me. It's so light that I don't really notice. I would buy this ring again. Great piece of jewelry.
"Never have I ever moment" --- Seriously though, never have I ever left a review before and here I am about to on every item here that I have purchased. Materials are stunning. If you are looking for
10/10, sizing was on point, and it's awesome. Brass looks great, 🔥
This ring is absolutely essential if you’re someone who values craftsmanship and can relate to their “slow is fast” motto. I am someone who, when it comes to quality items, will spend a bit more to get amount of use and “life” out of an item. The ring feels solid for its size and the fit is impeccable. The finish is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier !
This ring is a beautiful piece handmade piece of art! I was nervous as I have never been a big jewelry guy, but this is just subtle enough where you can wear it with everything. It really completes outfits and adds a thoughtful touch! Compared to their cuffs, the ring doesn’t get as much of a patina, but the different angled hammer marks always look sweet!
I’m always happy to tell people about the company when they ask about my ring (which comes up quite frequently)! Definitely a piece you can wear with pride
I had seen this ring a few months ago, but decided to wait on purchasing it to look around a little more and be confident it was the one I wanted. I wound up not finding any other ring I liked as much and purchased it. I have very sensitive skin, and the patina discolored my finger at first, but Studebaker took it back and polished it and send it back to me! I now wear it everyday and get plenty of compliments!
I had been on a quest to find the perfect pinky ring for years, and finally found it with the SM ID ring. It’s exactly what I was looking for. Traditionally designed and carries the Studebaker Metals signature look. I love the hammer marks and patina and I fully expect it to get better over the years. I love this ring and the hard working Pittsburgh craftspeople that made it <3 I can’t recommend it enough!
This is the second ring I have from Studebaker, I have the brass signet ring (which is incredible) and I wanted a ring to match that. Studebaker made my cuff ring in brass to match my signet ring and allowed me to get it in 9.5 even though it is not listed. I cannot say enough good things about this company and the incredible products they make.
Read the previous reviews after pondering it for awhile, finally ordered it and it looks even better in person than it does online. It’s minimal enough to not be flashy but it’s just enough noticeable for others to ask about it. Highly recommend
I had been looking for a minimalist ring to buy for so long, and I decided to get this one. It is great. Its small enough to not be super bulky, but it also isn't too small for it to look weird. I love it! I would 100% recommend this ring or any other ring from this company! The craftsmanship is great!
So let me start by saying this company is amazing. The response times are insanely awesome & I’ve felt nothing but helped from point A to point B.
Now about the ring. I needed a size 8.5 (which is not listed) & I requested it to be polished (which is also not listed) & they made it freakin’ happen.
I’m amazed with the service that this company provides, it’s truly hard to find. & Honestly just knowing this was made in the USA makes it better.
I wish I was able to add a picture of the ring so you guys can see how awesome it looks.
Thanks for all your service studebaker team! This is the first review I’ve ever left for anything so that should speak volumes!
Absolutely love this ring perfect size, the craftsmen ship is beyond amazing! I highly recommend any of their work!
