Brass will tarnish towards green with time (Wear will keep it brass-coloured). Keep that in mind.

The black rings are probably gonna go towards the normal silvery look of steel with time, especial ...

Also... You want to make it 4*PI?*(ID+WD)/2*(WD/2) + PI*WD?/4 or 4*PI?*(ID+WD)/2*(WD/2) + PI*(WD/2)?

There's two ends to a ring. Each is PI*(WD/2)? or PI*WD?/4. Two of those, and we get PI*WD?/2 ...
