Default [Q] Skip sticker -> ring?

I just got a skip and it came with 3 stickers. I was curious if anyone has dissected the stickers to reveal the NFC guts inside. What I'd like to do is take one apart and then attach the NFC bit to a ring. I see that you can buy NFC rings but I was wondering if I could fashion something that would look more like a normal ring.

I'm betting you could machine a groove in the ring for an nfc tag and then overlay some type of material on top of it. I'm guessing you've got the equipment to machine a ring so you could definitely do it. I'm drooling over the carbon fiber ring they show on that kickstarter page.
