Beaded Encased style Short Hair Ring (Sizes 7 & 8) *Engraveable
This ring base is designed in sterling silver. It is presently available in your choice size of either 7 or 8. This style features a 7 x 5 mm oval that will be filled with horse hair. The ring band feels thick enough to be very sturdy, but not bulky. Tail hair produces a design with larger, thick strands visible and a more "simple" look. Mane hair creates a design with thinner strands showing, and a more complex look.
The ring setting has a silver "beaded" look across it along with a swirled accent to showcase the horse hair setting.
This style requires approximately 3-5 long tail strands, 5-10 long mane strands, or 10-20 short mane strands to complete.
Background colors are not required. You can simply type "none" or "silver" if you prefer not to have an accent color added behind the hair in this ring. If you do not add a background color the sterling silver base will show through the hair. Sample piece shown in photos was created with black tail hair and a bronze background.
Please note that engraved designs are non-refundable.
Don't forget to list a size! This can be easily determined by any jeweler. The size you list will be the actual ring 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.)
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to let me know.
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.
