There was an outfit in San Francisco making both the Dracula and Mummy rings also, as of the last year, selling them on ebay.

I don't know who that "Bang bang" outfit is but they keep on relisting it and it never sells. I hate when they refuse to lower the price after that many lost auctions. Just stupid.

Got mine from Dimensional Designs--comes with a nice scarab-shaped box, too (resin of some sort).  Ring is silver, with black onyx (or glass?) body.  Good detail, good wgt.  Should be easy to find if you Google Dimensional Designs (I see there is already a link posted, above).  Not inexpensive, but a quality piece for your money.

The fella at DD also told me that the Mummy rings were a pain to produce with the jeweler because the little indented area kept cracking the black stone.  He told me once they are sold out---that's it.  if he was just giving me a pitch, it worked. :D

Anton--I spoke to the same gent, I'm sure!  At Wonderfest, this was, the year they had hotel refurbishing and the con was held across the way (you took a shuttle bus from the hotel).  I remember that story--which seemed plausible, as that little pointed tip of black stone surely does look like a fragile element of the design.  He said there was so much breakage when assembling the rings at the factory that it wouldn't be cost effective to do a further run.  I didn't have the cash on me at that point, at the con, so ordered mine via mail as soon as I got home.  Sales ploy or not, it's a darn good lookin' ring!

Absolutely, here here.  I would recommend it for the monster fan who seemingly already has everything.  It doesn't take up a whole lot of room and makes a nice added touch to any character driven display or just general monster collection.

Just checked the price on these and they are now listed at $550 by DD. They probably don't have all that many left, at that price. Glad I got mine last year for $300.

I'm having a real artist recreate this as a one-off, in sterling silver & black onyx.. I'll post a pic when it's done. Also doing the much simpler 1931 Dracula ring.

Never seen a clear enough photo reference of the '31 Dracula ring to attempt a decent repro. A friend of mine is having repros made of Wilbur Whateley rings from 1970's "The Dunwich Horror."

Factory Entertainment just announced they're doing a fully-licensed version in gold and onyx later this year.
A little tease to a new prop replica product we are working on which I think some of you will enjoy.

This is only the epoxy 'master' NOT FINAL PRODUCT, created by the talented Mr Tyler Ham with some  research input from the legendary Bob Burns. It is not a copy or cast from Forries famous ring, which although amazing was not actually a prop from the film.

The final replica will be gold with real onyx scarab.
