Change for a Quarter

These rings are transformed from ordinary pocket change into an altered state. Commemorative state quarters are punched out and then re-worked into these richly detailed rings. The rings are then silver plated, which gives them an added patina. A unique way to display your local pride, you can request the state quarter of your choice, and its name and statehood year are visible on the outer surface. Because the quarters were only minted for ten weeks each, choice of issuance year is not available. Handmade in California.

Now available: US Territories, see drop down list for specifics.



Sizes 3-9.5 available, including half sizes.

    Comments about STATE QUARTER RING:

    I love my Nebraska state quarter ring. It's very unique. It looks delicate, but it's very sturdy. Unless someone asks to see the ring up close it's not obvious that the lovely design and coin edge are actually a former quarter, but upon closer inspection it becomes very clear that it's former life was a coin!!! Every detail is very clear, and it sits easily upon the finger. I think anyone who has a "favorite" state would LOVE to have this unique way of displaying their pride on their hand.

      Comments about STATE QUARTER RING:

      I bought the largest size available (9.5) and the ring is still legible. It took a moment for my husband to figure it out but once he realized what it was, he was impressed. He typically doesn't wear jewelry other than his wedding ring, but thought it was such a neat idea and clever product that he wears his state ring proudly everyday.

      We've only had the ring for a short while, but no issues so far. Right now, I would absolutely recommend this product.

        My husband adored this ring and he's not a big fan of wearing rings or any kind of jewelry. But this ring is very meaningful to him as a coin collector. Definitely a State-of-the-Art dude ring.

              Comments about STATE QUARTER RING:

              This was a very disappointing purchase as the design on the very narrow ring does not show up at all unless you literally use a magnifying glass to see the state title and date stamp. In person, it is dark and unclear; nothing like the feature photo. I purchased this as a requested gift for my adult son and we are both very disappointed. Don't waste your money, as the product is NOT returnable!!

                  I purchased this ring for my daughter last Christmas. She is away at college so I wanted to give her something to wear to remind her of her home state. The ring is unique and nicely done but, it turned her finger green. I understand that it's the makeup of the coin but, for the price I expected more. I tried coating it with clear nail polish but it didn't help. She now wears it as a necklace on a chain.

                    I wanted a gift that would mean something to the recipient and be unique at the same time. So learned what US State held special meaning for my friends and had a ring made for them. They can wear alone, stacked with other slim rings, or on a chain as I do with other pieces that hold meaning for me, like my father's ring, a peace sign someone gave me, something I picked in France 20 years ago, etc.

                        We think Clyde Austin's ring design is right on the money. Would you wear your state proudly around your finger?

                        I've actually had a ring like this before from a different company and wore it until you could no longer tell it was a coin (7 years)! It makes an amazing gift and was always a great conversation piece!

                        I love these! Would totally wear them- I also like that you can see the states and the year- it could easily become a good anniversary gift.

                        I love the concept, however, the price point is ridiculous, I would pay around $25- 30 for this item.

                        Thanks for the feedback, everyone! We're glad to see these rings getting some attention. Please keep in mind that although they are made of real quarters, they are silver plated (to increase shine and protect against nickel metal allergies). The price factors in the cost of silver as well as the time and effort it takes to handcraft each ring.

                        heck yea!

                        Love it! Unique and a great way to show off home state pride! The price is a little high for me, however I understand why it is where it is. I would ask my family to buy me this for Christmas!

                        Great idea. I think that these rings will be very popular.

                        I really love some of the state quarters but haven't seen much point in collecting them. I think this would be a much cooler way to commemorate a state of importance to me.

                        Totally cool! I want one! :D

                        This is an illegal item. This is defacing the US mint coins, and criminal charges can be made to whoever is responsible for this.

                        Dear Vito : this is only illegal if it is represented as legal tender which this is not, nor is it represented as a usable coin. People have been making tie tacs, charms, rings such as this and other items of jewelry for years.

                        We used to make these when I was a kid. I think the cost is high, but I like the idea.

                        Would love to have this to my man

                        Like it,but I believe it is illegal to deface us currency?

                        Yea - this is pretty neat - especially for a guy - price is right, too. I'd probably buy this for my son (28 years old). He might get a kick out of it!
