One would think that custom jewelry would be much more expensive than 'off the shelf' merchandise, but the prices at DeSignet are surprisingly affordable, and Reg is willing to work with his customers to create the beautiful custom designs they want while staying within their budgets.
“We want our customers to understand how the process works and, that having 'One of a Kind deSign' doesn't have to cost more, in fact, often less, without the hype.” – from the DeSignet website
The custom signet ring Reg created will be awarded to the Tournament Champion.

The pilgrim pins he created will be awarded to the competitors who win the Tilting, Mounted Melee and Chivalric Equitation Obstacle Course (a type of Mounted Skill at Arms Course) competitions within the overall tournament.

There is one other award that will be given during the tournament. This award cannot be won based on skill alone. The Award of Chivalry is presented to the competitor who displays the most honourable behavior throughout the tournament. The prize committee for Lysts on the Lake decided that they wanted a traditional poesy ring which could be worn as a favour for this award and ordered a ring from Kathryn Riechert Jewelry which sells a variety of custom poesy rings.
