When I show people I say "always holding his hand"
I love to show off the cool rings we make here at Brent&Jess. I love how every ring has it's own personality even if it is a simple flat band.
This set is made of 14k white and rose. The Fingerprints are on the exterior, they also added handwriting for the engraving on the interior of the wedding rings! They came out awesome!
Here we have a gorgeous 18k yellow gold engagement ring. The subtle wrapped fingerprint is one of a kind. I hope he made her a happy woman and she said "yes!" This will be a classic treasured ring for sure!
These rings are handcrafted out of 14k gold. They are a beautiful set, one of the two rings has a tiny baby footprint!Read More
Thank you Jessica Williams, these are absolutely AMAZING! You could not find a more significant ring to me, than one that has Dave and I's fingerprints. On 1/22 we will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. This will be Dave's first time wearing a ring in a LONG time. The service, ease of process in getting the fingerprint, speed of service, the presentation when I opened the box to the most gorgeous, personalized set of rings, it was absolutely stellar!
I could not think of a better gift, words will never be able to say thank you enough, they are PERFECT! I am thankful for your friendship, talent and gift!!!!

How To Choose an Engagement Ring,
Each ring here at Brent&jess is artisan handcrafted by us here in Topsham, Maine in the USA. Each ring is meticulously handcrafted one at a time with your unique fingerprint. No two rings are alike. The Brent&Jess team is small and we trust them to create your one of a kind fingerprint ring.
While some designers rely on making designs only in cad cam program. Brent and Jess craft rings and bring jewelry to life with hands on designing. Starting with a rough sketch we then create the master model. Depending on the style we may start with wax or raw material. Each item is a small sculpture. Handcrafted with our intense attention to detail.
While we strive for perfection the nature of fingerprints leaves room for variation. Some people have delicate prints that have fine lines that can be hard to see. Examine your fingers to see what type of prints you have.
All Brent&jess jewelry is meticulously handcrafted here in the United states.Read More
I awoke this morning to a beautiful layer of fresh, white snow. What better way to get in the mood for the arrival of the holiday season. Then as I was driving to work, I had to slow down as the wild turkeys made their way across the street. I counted 12 and then looked across the street and there was one last bird intrepidly waiting for his turn to cross. So I stopped to let him make his way across the road. The changing of seasons is one of many reasons why living in Maine is truly a joy. The holiday season is not just about Black Friday, ads, and Christmas music and shopping; but also about appreciating each new day with all it has to offer. Take time to enjoy!
Here at Brent&Jess the Christmas season is our slow time. We focus on weddings and during this time we start preparing for the next rush of weddings.
Brent is busy at the bench creating new designs! This year we are putting focus on engagement rings and ring sets. We want to be able to offer matched sets for those people who like to have specially paired sets.
Our rings have always been popular as Men's wedding rings because they are classic and easy to wear. With women's rings it is a little more difficult, they want a ring that compliments their engagement ring. We are working on more narrow ring choices this winter!
We are super excited to be able to offer more designs that have character and stones! We will be doing rings offering diamonds or alternative stones like sapphires, tourmaline and black diamonds. We hope our designs speak to couples who are looking for original unique handcrafted designs that will also be classic and long lasting.
Here at Brent&Jess we love photos from our customers!
This wedding was at Yosemite.

Two things separate us from the rest--we are professional artisan jewelers, and our process is unlike our competition. We use your actual fingerprint texture in our handcrafted wrapped fingerprint wedding bands. Our patent process makes an impression of your actual finger for the wrapped prints. We have developed another method for the finger tip print rings that we apply the fingerprint more deeply for durability with a proprietary laser process. Custom pieces from our memorial and keepsake lines are also made using that deeper engraving process. Often the customer's loved one has passed away or is very ill. For those pieces we use an ink or graphite print and an engraving process. Please contact us if you'd like to discuss the two processes and their resulting pieces.
Our prints are not just burned on it is a deep impression in the ring. They are handmade not commercial rings.

Would You Care For a Bite of our Vegemite Sandwich?
Since we have so many customers from down under we decided we needed to try some vegemite.
The Happy Little Vegemite Song
We are happy little Vegemites as bright as bright can be,
We all enjoy our Vegemite for breakfast, lunch and tea,
Our mummy says we're growing stronger every single week,
Because we love our Vegemite,
We all adore our Vegemite,
It puts a rose in every cheek!

Thoughts from the shop
"Like you were eating just the seasonings pouch of oodles of noodles...."
"I need water"
Adam was bravest with a full piece of toast... with a healthy amount on it!
"take a bullion cube, melt it a teaspoon of water and add on top of toast"
