Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
I have a friend of mine in FL named Steve Copening, who is a jeweler. He was not fortunate enough to have served in THE Regiment, but he did serve in the 82nd.
He has come up with a simple yet elegant sterling silver ring with the crossed sabers of the Cav with the numeral 2 above the sabres, and a Fleur de Lis under them. I've attached a photo of what it will look like.
if anyone is interested in purchasing one, please let me know, and i will either send the info on to Steve, or provide you with his contact info. The price is momentarily at $215 each. Perhaps if we get enough interest generated that can be lowered. Let me know here or at :
Marc I would be interested in the contact information you have for the jewler.
Marc not sure how soon I can buy one but I'd like the jeweler contact info also.Looks like a great ring.
hey guys, i like it as well. unfortunately the jeweler has notified me that the ring as depicted cannot be manufactured. apparently, CAD images do not translate into real world object. what do i know? i was only an 11C...
the new design will feature the crossed sabres on top. and the Fleur de lis will be engraved on one side of the ring and the "2nd ACR" on the otherside.
the good news on this is, it will significantly lower the cost of the ring.
OR, i can try and find another jewelry manufacturer that IS capable of the original design...your thoughts gentlemen?
I would also most definately be interested in this. I have a unit ring from my grandfather that is about 65 years old that has been passed down to me and would like something similar for my grandchildren when I pass.
