The Alexander Stainless Steel set features the really nice Mirror-Finish Stainless Steel that I like so much. The cross combination is Brass + Nickle. I still use Nickle because it is a softer metal. It's nearly impossible to effectively hand cut the intricate cross out of the very dense steel. (It really needs to be stamped to be done in steel, and I don't currently have that capability). Very soon, I will be offering wood or acrylic as a cross option. Until then, we have the brass + Nickel.
The crown blessing has been engraved around the exterior of the crown in Monotype Corsiva. And all the engraved text and cross designs have been oxidized to help add some additional depth to the details.
The crosses stand about 1.5" tall. I make these crosses myself, so some slight handmade variations may be possible.
I've made these crowns to my standard size of just over 7" diameter, round crowns.
Price listed is for the set of 2 crowns.
Made upon demand. Please allow for about 3 business days for me to get your set made, once the order comes in.
Also, be sure to email me the names of the Bride and Groom so this can be fully customized (no additional cost)...or add that info in the "notes" section during checkout.
This crown set IS a good candidate for the added interior engraving add-on feature.
****The thing that makes me pause with this set is that it is difficult to bond any metal to Steel without welding it. The metal work I do is Soldering. I cannot solder the cross onto the steel. Instead I use a metal epoxy. In theory, if the crowns are dropped, the crosses could come off the crown base. Fortunately, I haven't had any reports of that happening; however it is a possibility. The crosses can of course be re-attached, but still, not something I ever really want to ave happen. This is why I'm looking into some alternate materials that will form a better bond with the steel. Steel is such a great crown material. I love it. This is its only draw-back.
