360 Degrees of Awesome

Often we only show you one view of a ring (so many rings, so little time!) but we thought we’d splash into the Photoshop pool to show you the many pretty and different views of the “x” inlay. Such movement!

The World in a Ring

O’ what a happy Monday! A day to bring ourselves upright once more, to charge into the new week. (Or revive with a cup of coffee and some deep breathing, and then stride gently up to the day’s to-do…)

Today, a newcomer to the studio asked, why is it called “Breaking Traditions“? Why, because it turns everything we’ve been raised to think about an engagement ring on its head!

It isn’t about rebellion so much as re-imagination: our Breaking Traditions rings use reclaimed, recycled, or ecologically-sourced wood and eons-old minerals, designed to respect our world while celebrating the wearer’s own, fresh view.

The World in a Ring

This “Breaking Traditions” mahogany ring is inlaid with mother of pearl, lapis, malachite, and red coral.

Mother of pearl is pretty and tough, the iridescent shield that protects the inner pearl.

Lapis lazuli is the source of a painter’s ultramarine, the platonic ideal of blue for artists (and us).

Malachite is a terrestrial green, a green of protection and healing and growth.

Red coral comes from the caverns of the ocean, a pulsing vermilion in the deep.

And in the design, with care and craft, all of it comes together: an emblem for a promise, an honorific of a connection, a signification of who you are and who you mean to be.

Let us help you celebrate your sweet difference! Wishing you a happy, healthy, productive week!

Wedding Rings for Men

Most guys don’t wear much jewelry, if any at all. The wedding ring may be the only piece of jewelry they decide to wear. With that in mind, we offer eco-conscious rings that are hand-crafted from salvaged woods, to be comfortable and wearable for the modern man.

Wood rings are a great option for men with professions that aren’t conducive to wearing a metal ring, such as electricians (or rather too conducive). For graphic designers, our custom designs are exciting to be a part of before the production process begins. For men that want a simple band without much embellishment, our rings are natural and of the earth, and you would not believe how light they feel.

For men that do want something more durable without the wear of a wood ring, check out our stainless steel rings with wood inlays.
