Sterling Silver Horseshoe Braided Horse Hair Ring (6-8 Week Production Time)
***PLEASE NOTE: This ring band design is custom made for each one ordered. This means that it has an extended wait as opposed to other items on our website. This design is estimated at a 6-8 week production time as we must wait for the ring base to be hand crafted and sent to us prior to beginning on the horse hair portion. **PLEASE do not order if you are not able to wait 8 weeks for the ring to be shipped.
This chunky ring base is a stunning sterling silver design with a lovely horseshoe accent. It features a basketweave of horse hair in the inlay. It requires 50 strands of tail hair at least 10" long. Mane hair is not usable for this design.
This ring band is approximately 5.5mm wide and weighs approximately 5.2grams prior to horse hair being added.
Please consider contacting a jeweler with these measurements to determine the size you will need. This is a wide band and may vary from the sizing you typically wear.
I am unable to engrave this ring base as my engraving is done by hand and this ring base is too wide to fit into my base.
Don't forget to list a size! This can be easily determined by any jeweler. The size you list will be the actual right size that you will receive. **Please ensure that you are confident in your size as I cannot resize these rings and do not return custom ring orders for wrong sizes.
All items designed by Equine Keepsakes are covered under a warranty. I will repair damaged hardware, replace lost charms, etc. Repairs are free. Replacement of lost charms or hardware may be subjected to a small fee.
What to expect if you order:
Each product listing contains an estimate of how much hair will be needed for the design you have chosen. You can select to send in horse hair or, if you prefer, you may select to have your keepsakes created with my horse hair in your choice color(s). If you send in your own horse hair, any unused hair will be returned with your finished order.
After completing your order please mail your horse hair to:
P.O. Box 912
Monongahela, PA 15063
***Please note that you will be invoiced for a $25 fee if your horse hair arrives to me before your order is placed as this causes confusion and delays in the order process.
You do not need to wash the hair before mailing. I will do that once it arrives. I ask that you avoid braiding it if possible. If it is already braided please do not worry, I can still work with it! The only thing you need to do it contain the cut end of the hair so that it stays together during transit. (A rubber band is preferred over anything else, if possible.) If the hair is too short to band I simply ask that you place it in a zipper sealed baggy inside the bubble mailer.
Please mail in a bubble mailer with tracking via USPS (United States Postal Service). The tracking will allow you to verify when the package arrives. Additionally, please ensure that the name listed at checkout is the name listed on the return address section of the package, as this will ensure that I know the horse hair is yours upon arrival.
(Please do NOT ship wet horse hair as it will mildew in transit and likely be permanently ruined.)
My current estimated production times can be seen on my "FAQ" page. Rush orders are available if needed, more information on those rates can be seen as you progress through checkout. Once your order is finished you will receive an email containing tracking for your order. All orders are shipped with tracking via USPS. Orders over $250 will require a signature upon delivery.
