This doesn't look right.  Google "Bitcoin vector artwork".  Specifically, the letter B on the Bitcoin logo should have a slanted (diagonal) stroke on the bottom left corner of the letter, which should not be parallel to the same stroke on the top left corner.  This one has them both parallel.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I can make this with the slant- no problem.  The CAD files are just examples- any modifications desired can be implemented per the client's needs.

Out of pure curiosity, what would the ring cost once it is made out of  palladium.

Rough estimate is enough

Saintflow- I can give you a wild guess.  Perhaps $850?  What we would have to do is make a model of the ring in your size and weigh the model.  The resin material of the model has a fixed density, so a mathematical relationship between the weight of the resin and weight of the palladium is easy to figure.  Since that tells us the amount of palladium we will use, we will then know the cost.  Of course sterling silver plated with rhodium would be much cheaper, and gold or platinum would be more expensive. 

As for the private key- we may be able to laser-engrave it on the bottom of the coin inside the ring.  I have never tried this before- not sure.

Hi RaggedMonk, yes- these are for sale now.  My wife Melanie and I are custom jewelers and all of the jewelry that you see on this thread was drawn by our CAD artist.  We can modify it in any way that you wish, and can produce it in most common jewelry materials like sterling silver, white or yellow gold (14K, 18K, 22K), palladium 950, or Platinum 900 or 950. 

We don't have a price list because we don't know the weight of a finished piece of jewelry to fit you.  If you want a copy of our policies and procedures just ask- this includes information on the fees incurred for each step in the process.  Most of the cost of a ring would be in the weight of the metal- except for silver because that is the most economical material.  In that case, making the model of your ring to cast (including the CAD design) is the most costly component.  Some people shy away from silver because it tarnishes, but we simply plate it with rhodium- just like white gold and platinum are plated with rhodium- and that problem is solved.

Let me know if you have any questions!
