Several years ago we received a call from Chris Ploof who was very excited about a discovery he had just made. At an auction he found a ‘lot’ of antique shotguns Circa 1870. They were not in working order, but their barrels were made of a Damascus Steel with amazing patterning running through it. Soon after we saw our first Shotgun Barrel Band and immediately understood what the ‘Mad Metallurgist’ had in mind. Wow!
The blackened shotgun barrel is striking against the deep yellow 18 karat gold edges. Notice the edges and entire inside of this ring are 18 karat yellow gold. Look close to see the beautiful graining in the Shotgun material. Such a cool ring!
