This is one incredible ring to challenge all other Damascus rings!
First, you get Premium Quality Bethlehem /Holy Land /Figured Olive Wood inner band and get to choose from natural finish or stain of your choice (see photos)!
Second, Genuine Damascus steel in your choice of Solid Black over Black, Primary Black over Silver or Primary Silver over Black Finish (see pictures)! Just let me know which one you want when ordering this ring in the "Notes to Seller" field. You also get to choose Natural Bethlaham Olivewood, Natural Olivewood with Varnish, or Stain of your choice on the inner band.
This ancient steel is normally used for manufacturing the finest swords and knife blades in the East characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. Such blades were reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge however in this case we use the bars to mill out your ring to perfection and use acid to etch out the natural Damascus designs.
The ring is then paired with an inner layer of the authentic Bethlehem Olivewood (must see photos above) with wood patterns unparalleled.
Why is the wood on the inside instead of the outside?
For those who reside in South America, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cabo San Lucas, and surrounding areas this is often thought of as good luck! Similar to how an American might say "Knock on Wood" for good luck, the saying in these other parts is "Skin to Wood" meaning if your finger is in contact with wood (very much the same as our saying here in the states) you will have good luck and is why the wood is on the inside while the metal is on the outside (a very unique and different design).
- US Ring Sizes 4-16

- Genuine Bethlehem Olivewood Inner Band (Comfort Fit Cut)
- Metals used are completely Hypoallergenic

- Wood is sealed in clear lacquer keeping it protected from sweat and damp areas but not recommended taking it swimming/shower as you might soften the bond between steel and wood. Not that I've had a complaint about this yet but it should be noted as common sense.

I LOVE MAKING CUSTOMIZED RINGS! Yes, we "specialize" in making nearly any kind of ring according to our customer's specifications. Simply message me here and I'll provide a quote based on the requirements of your custom-designed ring(s).
While there are some very tough rings that can put up with a lot of abuse like Titanium or Tungsten, all jewelry regardless of price requires some common sense TLC and in most cases it should be a habit to remove your ring prior to taking a shower, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer or lotion, swimming or while working that requires heavy hand to machinery contact or anything that would simply be abrasive. If you have any concerns, simply ask about your specific ring and ask about our hyposealer which is an additional protective coating that can be applied to help protect and prevent oxydation.
Because I actually hand make these rings myself, I can often offer them in all sizes including extremely small to very large ie. US Sizes 1-25 and as fine-tuned as much as a quarter of a size on most rings. If you don't see the size you require, please message me. I often can still do it for you!
Yes, all rings $40 or more automatically are shipped in a beautiful ring box FREE OF CHARGE!
If you need a ring box for something less expensive, just let me know and I'll still do it for free 😍

Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating.
