This ring is hand forged from a single piece of iron using traditional blacksmithing techniques of fire, hammer and anvil. The viking rune 'Uruz' has been forged/carved on to the ring using a hand made chisel. Other runes can be carved by request, a few examples are shown in the later photos. This ring is identical to my other iron ring listing, except for the forged rune.
The inside of the ring has been sanded and polished to ensure a comfortable fit. The outside has been wire brushed, but hammer marks and some of the fire scale are left intact for texture.
REGARDING RUST, PLEASE READ: Iron rings will rust when exposed to moisture, especially with salts and acids (citrus, vinegar). The rust is not permanent, it can be cleaned. The rust may stain your skin. If you're worried at all about rust, please do not purchase this ring. That being said, my personal experience is that rusting is minimal. It's skin chemistry dependent. Natural skin oils generally protect iron jewelry from oxidation, any natural applied oils and hand lotions would also help. In the 10 years that I have worn an iron ring continuously (including showers, doing dishes), it has only rusted noticeably when swimming in ocean/sea water.
Please indicate ring size, and desired rune. Band width can also be customized, but must be at least 5mm to accommodate the rune.
