THE MATERIALS USED TO CREATE EACH ITEM IS CUT FROM AND
CAREFULLY DISSECTED FROM A PRICELESS AVIATION ARTIFACT.
Due to the rarity and limited amounts of the materials available, all considerations are made to preserve the materials used to create each item.
Variations in appearance, quality, size, finish, color is to be expected in order to preserve the original attributes of the items history.
Please read before requesting custom made items including rings.
Filling out the contact sheet below means you have read, understood, and agree with the disclosure statement at the bottom of this page.
It takes only 10 days to complete and ship an order. However, due to my disabilities and recent back surgery I am limited to making two rings per month.
Please provide the style, size, width, thickness, finish, and color.
I will send the invoice as soon as I can. Thank you.

ON ALL CUSTOM ORDERS THE TERMS OF SALE ARE AS FOLLOWED.
ITEM(S) ARE SOLD AS IS WITHOUT A WARRANTY OF ANY KIND EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.
Please understand that I am NOT a jeweler. I am a Master Technician in the field of metals arts designing, developing, and creating parts and components for the worlds most advance aerospace systems. I have been certified and awarded by our nations top defense agencies. I have over 20 years of experience and higher education from the best learning facilities in existence.
Some of these include Advance Machinist, Tool & Die Design & Construction, Computer Numerical Control Machining Systems, Heat Treating & Electroplating of metals, Advance Aerospace Composite Structures, Metals Processes and Joining of advance aerospace alloys, Power systems drive train systems repair, Aircraft Maintenance Section Supervisor Level Inspector, Polarized Microscopy in analysis and identification of materials and chemical identification of metals and advance alloys. I was trusted, certified, and maintained the skill sets and integrity to work on and repair our most critical national security assets including live nuclear weapons, loaded nuclear weapons systems, and top secret aerial intelligence platforms. I have been in contact with jewelers and jeweler educators who have told me they do not have the capability nor the skills to accomplish creating titanium rings using the processes required in creating MACH3Ti rings.
You are buying a little piece of history representing the greatest achievement in aeronautics.
The process used in creating a ring takes 2 to 3 days of meticulous detailed work. They are hand cut, hand formed, hand ground, hand shaped, hand polished, and hand colored. This hand work is accomplished at temperatures up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. The rings are not mass produced on automated machine tools. They are completely hand made. Every one unique to the customers design specifications. They are NOT perfect, NOT intended to be perfect, and NOT intended to meet any common jewelry standards in size, color, or shape. These variations prove that the rings are hand made. Anyone can make hundreds of duplicate rings using cheap common grade metals on computer controlled machines.
This material is EXTREMELY RARE and LIMITED. Only 80 ounces of this titanium now remains and only small fraction of that can be made into rings.
This SR-71 Titanium originated from an actual part of the SR-71's Ejector Nozzle.
The Ejector Nozzle along with the Air Inlet system are responsible for the majority of the power and thrust that pushed the Blackbirds faster than any other air breathing manned jet aircraft, flying TOP SECRET aerial reconnaissance missions to MACH 3+ at the edge of space.
The SR-71's still retain their records for top speed high altitude flight. These materials were developed during the Cold War under the Top Secret "OXCART" Program by the Lockheed Skunk Works. The code name for the material was "UNOBTAINIUM".
The word "UNOBTAINIUM" means that by all practical purposes it is impossible to obtain.
The finish that appears on your item may contain the original manufacture tooling marks, stress or chaffing caused by the extreme temperatures and pressures in the SR-71's exhaust system.
The titanium material on the aircraft was used to it's physical limits, there are anomalies in the metal itself.
All of the spare parts and materials from these aircraft have been destroyed and no longer exist. The following two links are the official Powerpoint presentations reporting the destruction process.
The items on this web site is all that remains of them except for the aircraft themselves that are on display in museums. The mission flown titanium parts that my items are composed from are considered priceless artifacts of aviation history.
SIZES AND TOLERANCES
By ordering rings you the buyer have determined the size and specifics dimensions. You must provide either a sample ring or an exact dimension in inches to 3 decimal places (0.000). That is the United States customary systems of measurement. There are several systems for denoting the sizes of rings in use around the world.
I just need a dimension.
Since these rings are hand made, the measurements and details are only accurate to a tolerance of not more than plus or minus 0.005" for the smallest measurement on the inside diameter of the ring.
Ring SIZE (smallest part of the inside diameter) tolerances are plus or minus 0.005".
Ring WIDTH tolerances are plus or minus 0.030".
Ring THICKNESS tolerances are plus or minus 0.030".
The actual size is provided in inches and millimeters on the Pay Pal Invoice.
IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO RESIZE A RING LARGER TO ABOUT 1/2 RING SIZE.
RE-SIZING A COMPLETED RING TO A SMALLER SIZE IS NOT POSSIBLE.
The items are custom made. I have no "pre-made stock". There are no exchanges. There are no refunds.
FULL REFUNDS ARE ALLOWED FOR ORDERS ONLY IF-
THE SIZE OF THE RINGS EXCEED THE DIMENSION AND TOLERANCE LISTED ON THE INVOICE.
CUSTOMERS MUST DETERMINE THAT THE STYLE, SIZES, WIDTH, THICKNESS, FINISH, & COLOR THAT THEY REQUEST AND THAT THEY ARE ACCURATE ON THE INVOICE WHEN MAKING THE PURCHASE.
I will only consider refunds or remakes only if the requested size is different than the dimensions stated on the invoice contract by more than the tolerances as stated above.
Due to limited supplies I may not be able to perform the requested service at any time.
THANK YOU !
