Details about The Original Mother's Ring

The Original Mother's Ring®... since the time of it's inception back in 1959, this ring was destined to become a timeless keepsake for the generations that followed. It is our most symbolic mother's ring available today. Crafted from two individual bands of solid karat gold or platinum, they represent mother and father. The children's birthstones are held in place with a unique, low profile, four prong setting which connects both bands. Mom and dad's stones can also be set to create a "family" ring. This ring represents the unity and bond of a mother's or grandmother's special family.

This classic ring is crafted from two individual bands that measure about 2mm wide each. It is set with nice size round-shape stones that measure approximately 3.75mm in diameter. This ring has a top-center measurement of about 6mm... the bottom too if a gap-style is selected. Because this is a wider ring, it's important to get the correct ring size measurement using wider finger measuring gauges especially if this ring is made with a gap.


Important: Stone additions and resizing is no longer offered for the ALL Platinum Original Mother's Ring.

Ordering the Correct Original Mother's Ring Size- As with all custom rings, it is important to make sure you order the correct size when the ring is being made. It is more important to order the Original Mother's Ring® in the correct finger size because if resizing is required, 2 bands must be resized (and resoldered if the pinch-back is ordered). It is more expensive to resize two bands compared to just one. This ring can be ordered with either a gap or a pinched back. Being about 6mm wide, this ring with a gap covers more finger area and tends to fit a bit tighter than the ring with a "pinchback". The ring with a pinch back tapers so it makes for a more comfortable fit. See pictures below.

When ordering the Original Mother's Ring with a gap, use wide finger
measuring gauges that are about 6mm wide to determine correct size.


Original Mother's Ring and Bracelet Information- When stone additions are required for The Original Mother's Ring® (or bracelet), new heads are usually soldered on the current/existing setting... most existing stones must be removed first, then reset because they will not take the heat of a torch. The exceptions are usually Rubies, Sapphires or Diamonds. Because of this, it is usually more expensive to have stones added to the Original Mother's Ring or Bracelet compared to ring styles which are traded in.

Gap vs. Pinchback- The Original Mother's Ring can be ordered with either a gap or with the bands soldered together (pinch back). If you will be considering stone additions in the future, you might want to consider the ring with the gap because it may be less expensive to add heads/stones to a ring with a gap since it has no fixed center. The pinchback ring has a fixed center which is located in the middle of the shank (the part of the ring you see when you look at the palm of your hand). You cannot add just one stone to a pinch back because it will make the ring unbalanced. See below for more information...


The Original Mothers Ring- 3 stone ring.

Considerations before ordering
The Original Mothers Ring if you
might like to add stones in the future. 

The Original Mother's Ring with a GAP- shown in the top picture on the left. If you were to place 1, 2, 3 or more stones next to the existing stones, the center of the ring (at the back-shank) would not be effected because the ring with a gap actually has no fixed center.

The Original Mother's Ring with a PINCHBACK- shown in the top picture on the top right. This ring has a fixed center which is always located in the middle of the pinched ring shank. If one stone is added to a pinchback ring, it will throw off the center of the ring and will not be balanced... if looking at the ring from the sides, one side of the ring would have a stone closer to the pinched back than the other side. If two stones were added, it would again be balanced. When an odd number of stones are added, the ring must have all of the existing heads repositioned which involves more labor so it is more expensive to add stones to the pinch back style.


The Original Mothers Ring- Gap or Pinchback

Note: When the Original Mother's Ring® is ordered in yellow and white karat gold, there is a very subtle difference between the yellow karat gold bands and the white karat gold heads. This ring is never made in all yellow karat gold.
