Unveiling the Magic: How Your Wooden Promise Ring is Crafted


Looking for a unique and meaningful promise ring? Look no further than our stunning wooden turquoise rings! But have you ever wondered how these little works of art are made? Today, we'll take you on a journey to discover the meticulous process and artistry behind each wooden  promise ring.

  1. Selecting the Perfect Wood: 

Our journey begins with selecting the finest wood veneer, boasting exquisite grain and color variations. We then steam the wood to make it pliable, allowing it to be flawlessly shaped into your wooden promise ring.

  1. Building a Strong Foundation:

Thin layers of this beautiful steamed veneer are meticulously rolled and secured with a powerful adhesive. This step not only forms the base of your ring but also strengthens the wood by filling its pores, ensuring long-lasting durability for your wooden ring.

  1. Shaping Perfection:

The ring takes center stage on a lathe, where a skilled artisan transforms it into a perfect circle. The exterior is meticulously shaped and smoothened, creating the ideal canvas for the upcoming artistry.

  1. Where Design Meets Wood:

Now comes the artistic flair! The design you choose is meticulously carved onto the outer layer of the wood. This two-step process starts with establishing the general form, followed by meticulous refining, and smoothing for a clean surface to place the inlay.

  1. The Allure of Gemstones:

Here's where your chosen gemstone comes into play! Using precision tweezers, each piece is meticulously placed to flawlessly fill the carved design. We start with larger stones, creating a captivating mosaic effect.

  • A Symphony of Texture: Following the larger stones, medium-sized gemstone pieces are used to fill any gaps, ensuring a consistent and visually pleasing texture. The process concludes with a final layer of very fine "sandy" gemstone, filling in the tiniest of spaces for a design brimming with vibrant color and captivating texture.
  1. A Seamless Union:

A diamond grinder meticulously flattens the turquoise surface, ensuring it aligns perfectly with the wood. This step requires a delicate touch to avoid damaging the wood. When done right, the design outline becomes beautifully defined, highlighting the artistry.

  1. The Art of Precision Sanding:

Before the finishing touch, both the inner and outer surfaces of the ring undergo meticulous sanding. This step removes any dust from the inlay process and ensures a perfectly smooth surface for your wooden promise ring. Precision is key here, as there's no turning back after the finish is applied.

  1. Layers of Protection:

The same powerful adhesive used to strengthen the wood now serves as the finish. Multiple thin layers are meticulously applied and cured completely before adding the next, ensuring exceptional protection and a flawless shine for your wood ring. The number of layers varies depending on the location for optimal coverage.

  1. Polishing to Perfection:

After allowing the finish to cure, the polishing magic begins! We meticulously buff and polish the ring, starting with the edges, then the inside, and finally the outside. A series of sanding pads, starting coarse and progressing to an ultra-fine 12000 grit, achieve a remarkably smooth and gleaming surface that highlights the beauty of the wood and turquoise.

  1. The Final Touch:

A protective wax coating is applied to the outer layer, providing a touch of satin sheen and safeguarding the adhesive layers for long-lasting wear on your wooden promise ring.

And there you have it! Your unique wooden turquoise promise ring is complete, handcrafted with passion and ready to be a cherished piece for years to come. Would you like to see our collection and find your perfect wooden promise ring?
