Musical wooden rings

This set of Touch Wood wedding rings was designed by a musician couple. They wanted to incorporate wood from each of their instruments. The two narrow bands on these birds eye maple wood rings are Grenadilla and Rosewood. Grenadilla (also called African black wood) is what clarinets are made of and the rosewood is the wood used in a marimba.

Here are some of Mike's comments:
"I don't know if this is a similar experience to a metal ring.... but this ring feels so good.... comforting, even.... a palpable energy! I'm so proud of it, the grenadilla and rosewood go so well together. David's amazing. The craftmanship is to not be believed. "

Cherry and birch wood ring

This lovely ring is cherry with two birch wood bands. It is a size 8 and a half and is 5mm wide. Designed with love as a birthday present.
