The ring

I read somewhere that it's actually an initial ring - of course, with Steve's intials

Steve's ring

It's a signet ring--an M with an overlaid S. I just sent a closeup pic off to Darren so he can post it here, cuz I don't know how to!

I recognised that ring in the claxton book - it's really awesome!!! If I had the money I would assign a manufacturer to make me a ring of that kind :)

the ring

Postby Donna » Sat Aug 26, 2006 2:59 am

Steve last wore it in Baby The Rain Must Fall and then it's never seen again after that. Maybe he lost it somewhere.

He's wearing a ring on that hand in one of the Marines pictures (he has his arms around the shoulders of two of his buddies, all of them in uniform, and the ring shows), and in a Time Out For Ginger photo (1953-54), and he was wearing it in The Defender, but I think only in part 2--it's been awhile since I watched it but I remember noticing he had a bare finger in one part and the ring was there in the other. The parts were aired two consecutive weeks.

I'm getting ready to reproduce this ring myself. I've got 25+ years in the custom jewelry field and this design will be a snap.

Feel free to contact me directly for details: carl@mandrawspicture.com

Thanks for the order, Steve!

The prototype/master has been completed and I'm very pleased with the results.

Mold/duplication is currently underway and I hope to be shipping finished rings out in the next couple weeks.

Hi Guys,

I am the one who started this thread "McQueen", but had lost my handle. Anyhow, I ordered this ring from Jeff Carlson and am still waiting for the product. Hopefully it will be here soon (Australia) and will take pics and give you guys a report. Hopefully it is like the pic above!
Will keep everyone informed.
