Wood is an eco-friendly and renewable material that makes superb rings for individuals and couples.
Handcrafted wooden rings uniquely shaped to suit you are a joy to wear and own. A wooden ring has many advantages for jewellery – tone colour and distinctive patterns. Layering and inserting other materials give increased decorative options using multiple kinds of wood, metals, and gemstones.
Warm to the touch and comfortable in cold or hot weather. An added benefit is that each ring is hypoallergenic and will not irritate sensitive skin. All custom wooden rings are hand crafted to size for the individual wearer, making a romantic set of wedding rings or engagement rings with a uniquely personal design.
Creating a Wooden Ring
Four standard styles use a selection of hardwoods perfect for wooden wedding rings to show grain and colours.
A simple solid section is the starting block. A drill creates the inner space to fit the finger. The band is turned, buffed, and polished with beeswax for a water-resistant organic finish. Alternatively, they can be protected by a high-grade lacquer for an enduring waterproof finish.
These bands are economical and showcase the beauty of the chosen woods from pale maple, warm yew, patterned exotics, and deep black ebony.
The same process as for a solid block, but with a laminated block. Glueing layers together creates a laminated block that has greater strength than a single piece. Plus, it can produce attractive striped rings by using select timber with excellent contrast. The laminated technique enables the use of exquisite woods that are too fragile to use in single wood rings but add a stunning element to handmade wood rings.
Metal and Wood Rings
Composite metal rings are created by inlaying strips into titanium or tungsten bands. Polished woods and metals are a classic combination. The wooden band benefits from the durability of the metal as a base layer. These inlay rings are the best, elegant and an excellent option for everyday wear.
Wood is a versatile product that can be curved by the skilful use of steam and adhesives. The curves of traditional shaker boxes and chairs use this method. We form bentwood rings using these traditional bending techniques. The resulting handcrafted rings are durable, waterproof and benefit from plenty of exciting options.
Why Choose Wood for Your Wedding Band?
Wood is an amazing resource that creates lovely jewellery and wedding rings as unique as the wearer. You can pick a wooden ring for the colouring, pattern, or style for an elegant piece of jewellery for special occasions or as wedding bands. Alternatively, you may prefer to select wood for its symbolism from the Celtic, Christian, or other traditions. You may have a sentimental attachment to a tree or a bit of furniture and want to capture a part of this in your wooden engagement rings.
