When people think of wedding rings, they usually think of a metallic band, shimmering in gold or silver. To top this off, the stereotype is complete with a large, expensive looking stone adorning the top. When they think of wooden rings, they think of pieces carved from a single solid tree.
When they find out the truth, many are surprised to find that wooden rings are often superior in both beauty and strength. On top of this, they add a natural touch, giving the wearer that pure spark, simply not found elsewhere.
We believe that the best rings are wooden, crafted using the bentwood method. We use this method to craft all our rings, due to its unmatched beauty and unique strength. This is a method that’s revolutionising the wedding band industry!
What is a bentwood ring?
Good question! A bentwood ring is a wooden ring that's made using a unique method. We craft each ring by hand, layering strips of wood on top of eachother, and bending them around a form. This results in a beautiful ring, built to last.
What’s so cool about bentwood rings?
Strength is a key feature of the bentwood ring. By combining many thin layers of Koa wood, the result is a material that feels almost like a composite. This technique results in an extremely durable ring. Bentwood rings are by far the strongest type of natural jewelry, especially compared to carved rings.
An advantage of this strength is that we can make rings that are incredibly thin, without losing durability. This makes them more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time.
What’s more, with a more consistent look and longer lifespan, the bentwood method is simply the superior way of doing things.
How have bentwood rings changed the wedding game?
As climate awareness grows bigger and bigger, more people are increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of their wedding. Much of the metal used in traditional wedding bands has questionable origins, so people are increasingly turning to wooden rings as a green alternative.
Wedding rings are some of the most meaningful pieces of jewelry we can own. Attached to each band are unique memories, shared between only two people. For this reason, people want their rings to last. Therefore, bentwood rings are becoming increasingly popular among newlyweds. It’s a real revolution!
There’s something special about a wedding ring that’s lived a life, sourced straight from nature.
