TypeRings (and Giveaway)
View Slideshow

From Amsterdam based start-up Alphabeth, the same company who brought you Tweet Rings has launched TypeRings.

TypeRings lets you create your custom designs on the outside and inside of an engraved ring. You can choose typefaces from world-renowned font foundry Underware or upload your own custom design. Results appear directly on screen in 3D so you see it before you buy.

Founder Rik Heijmen explains, “when we got married back in 2000 we had trouble finding an affordable ring with an outside engraved text in a tasteful typeface. There simply wasn’t a way to do it. Ten years later, the idea to create this website was born.”

The rings are available in all common sizes in silver, white gold or yellow gold and are made to order in the Netherlands. Laser-engraved using the latest laser technology, every order is delivered within 10 days.

The design above is my own custom design, featuring a rocker and the words “I LIKE TO ROCK.” If you like this design, you can go to and purchase it!
