Description

It's taken us a while to find the vintage centerpiece for these beautiful custom rings made by the Curiosity Shopper Crew for Steampunk aviation fans. The metal ring finding is newly manufactured & looks like antique brass but the real magic happens when we marry up the lovely finding to this vintage Army Air Corps (early U.S. Air Force) insignia. The result is outstanding! The insignia is originally from Army Air Corps overcoat buttons. The brass winged prop insignia has to be removed from the huge bakelite buttons & then carefully cleaned & coated with a finish to retain the vintage appearance & stop tarnishing. The surface of the brass has darkened & aged & we've just preserved it that way so it blends-in almost perfectly with the finding. The finding is universal & can be easily adjusted by hand. Only 3 available at this time. Too perfect to last, it's doubtful that we'll be able to find many more of the exact type of old Air Corps metal insignia that we used to make this ring, but we'll keep looking. Enjoy! Approximate dimensions: From wingtip to wingtip the insignia measures approximately 1 & 1/4 inch (3 cm). The rind is adjustable; “one size fits most.” Vintage Ring For Steampunk Aficionados – Made By Curiosity Shopper Crew
