Handmade bentwood ring, made from macassar ebony wood with a solid 14k yellow gold inlay. Gold inlay will stay bright and will not discolor like brass, copper, or silver inlays.
Available in many sizes and widths. (pictured size 9, 6mm wide)
Guaranteed genuine 14k, approx. .85 gram per ring (size 9).
Also available with 14k rose gold, or 14k white gold. Due to the nature of rose and white golds, they will slightly discolor after long periods of time. Either one can be easily brought back to luster with jewelry polish. For rose or white gold, indicate in the notes of the order which one you would like.
Bentwood rings are made by steaming thin veneers of wood then wrapping around a ring form to construct a very strong lamination. Not only strong but very lightweight. Wood grain and color can vary. Each ring is made to order to your size and width.
Finished with an all natural wax/oil combination then buffed. This finish brings out the natural beauty of the wood grain and protects against moisture. It is water resistant, and is fine for short exposure to water however it is recommended to remove for longer periods. As with all finishes, over time the finish with dull slightly. When this occurs rub with any natural wax/oil combination for wood to restore luster and prolong protection. Free lifetime refinishing/buffing, just pay shipping.
Bentwood rings cannot be resized, so it’s important to know your correct ring size. If you are unsure about your size, any jeweler should be able to size you for free, or Amazon sells small sizers for about $3. If sizing at a jeweler, be sure to try on a ring the same width as you are planning to order. Wider rings will tend to feel tighter than narrow rings the same size.
