Hardwood combined with metal rings are highly durable as they are made from tough hardwood, accompanied with a durable metal or composite base. Its composition makes rings last for years with proper care.
Exposed hardwood rings are made water resistant by stabilizing them and using beeswax or epoxy for their finish. Moreover, sealing the wood layer with a thin layer of enamel enhances the protection of wood from moisture and damage.
Hardwood rings are usually unlikely to react with skin, and therefore are generally safe to use and hypoallergenic.
Rust, Scratch, and Corrosion Resistant
Corrosion is a deterioration that occurs in metals. Acids cause corrosion of metals resulting in the deterioration of the fine appearance of metal surfaces. Hardwood, however, is corrosion-resistant and durable. The chances of getting scratches on hardwood steel rings are much less. The metals combined with hardwood rings are specially treated to make them corrosion resistant.
Hardwood rings are generally affordable when compared to traditional precious metals such as gold and silver rings.
Hardwood rings have a unique grain which means no two hardwood rings are the same. They are also easily paired with other metals to produce distinct designs and looks for all wearers.
We've put together some of our designs below to highlight the designs possible when combining hardwood and other metals.
