Birthwood Rings by Simply Wood Rings
April | Walnut & Diamond Dust
Ancient Romans associated walnut with the godess Carmenta: her name is derived from the root carmen, meaning "oracle." Later, the tree came to epitomize a connection with Jupiter. In Native American lore, walnut trees are symbols of clarity and focus, gathering energy, and beginning new projects. Diamonds are ubiquitous for their physical strength--as such, these stones represent purity, fortitude, and mental clarity.

Love is Now...
...a Gift of the Present
The Tree has been a symbol for humans throughout our time, spanning histories, geographies, religions and mythologies. It is a symbol of the interconnectedness of all life, reaching out to the sky with its branches and down into the Earth with its roots.
Staying true to these ancient ideas, Birthwood by Simply Wood Rings, paired with birthstones, represents the "gift of the present moment".
Pulling heavily from Celtic and Native American beliefs and folklore, we’ve selected each tree and appropriate month to highlight the symbolic meaning and strengths of each tree and those born under them. Also, see our line of Birthwood Pendants.

For the first 19 years of my life, I celebrated my birthday with my grandmother. This is because we happened to have the same birthday. October 17th was always the one day out of the year that I looked forward to the most.
