Two friends who found each other through CrossFit came together to form RECON Rings. The story goes something like this:
Tom was telling the tale to Stephen about how he witnessed a buddy lose his finger while deployed in Iraq, because a wedding band got caught on a door.
"When we last left our young Tom Tartaglia, he was deployed with his unit in Iraq. While on patrol, his team mate stumbled coming out of a LAV, grabbed for the door, and suffered a severe ring avulsion, removing his finger when it caught on his wedding band.
Tom and his team sprung into action, knocking his friend out, grabbing the ring and escaping to the nearest base trying to save their friend's finger.
Fast forward to present day. Tom marries Lisa, knowing that he will need to find a better ring to profess his love and keep his fingers."
The story of the team “on patrol” evolved to being “on recon”, which became the name of the brand.
Today RECON Rings is veteran owned company producing their high quality brand of silicone wedding bands for active individuals.
A portion of the money from each recon ring sale will be donated amongst several military affiliated, non-profit 501(c)3 organizations with a focus on helping veterans and their families.
RECON Rings will release limited edition, tribute products, while working together with individual charity organizations to raise both awareness and funding, continuing to focus on our wounded veterans and their families.
HOW TO SIZE YOUR RING
You can walk into Avonlea Jewelry in Lumberton, TX and we will be more than happy to size your ring finger. Otherwise, please continue to read the information below.
Use a piece of string or cut a strip of paper. Wrap this around your ring ringer and mark where it intersects. It should fit without squeezing your finger. Measure it.
ALREADY KNOW YOUR SIZE?
If you know the size of your ring, you are ahead of the game. When fit SNUG, RECON rings will measure 1/2 a size large. SIZE DOWN if you are on the fence about what size to choose. If you are used to wearing a size, order smaller and we will always replace it for free if its wrong.
The rings will loosen up after a couple weeks and starting with a snug fit is ideal.
