I made my wife and I's wedding bands, used 2 piece stainless steel cores from Bangle Guy. not too difficult, except for the CA finish part, that always gives me fits...

Yeah, I have a friend who is getting married next month and has asked me to make one. I am not overly impressed with the solid wood ones from a long term durability aspect but the two piece ring cores seem to be a good compromise between a factory made one and handmade with good long term durability.

I’ve done titanium and stainless cores from bangle guy. They’re pretty straight forward.

I haven’t found a finish that will really hold up to frequent hand washing, but they’re easy to refinish.

Doc, have you ever tried the UV finish?

That’s one that I haven’t tried, but I’ve thought about buying some for fishing lures at some point... if I do, I’ll try it on a ring.

I have used the two piece stainless,one piece stainless and titanium and have used the ceramic. I like the ceramic because its black,but have had good luck with all of them. I get mine from ring supplies and craft supplies.
