Nuts About Walnuts walnut inlay ring

They’re all made of walnut!

We love the Nuts About You ring for its monomaterial elegance: the wood is walnut, the inlay is crushed walnut.

Walnut is — as we 21st century eaters know — FULL of Omega-3s and healthy fats, protein and a great woody umami taste. It’s also known for focus, energy, and strength. Its scientific name — juglans — translates to “tree of Jupiter,” the Roman god of the sky, (Zeus, for you Greek myth nerdlets out there). It’s a plant which unites pragmatic functionality and heroic strength.

Convinced as we are? Head on over to the shop to get one on your functional, strong little finger.

Prong Setting Super Post

Prong Setting Super Post

In 1872 Ferdinand J. Herpers patented the prong setting for the Tiffany Company, who had introduced it as the “Tiffany Setting” in 1886.

It is an embrace of a setting, the prongs used in a similar way to how we use the fingers of our hands.

At SWR, we’re always amazed at how different one prong-set ring looks from another. Recently, we’ve moved away from a simple pin-mounted setting. We like to use a prong setting laser-welded to a metal ring inlay. as you’ll see below. We find they’re stronger that way, and quite striking.

Suzie & Niche & Their Rings

Our client Suzie sent us the SWEETEST email, one in a series of VERY SWEET emails:

“I just don’t think we would have ever felt like this about any other rings. It’s like they’re alive and a piece of us, a piece of one another. This morning I received a text from Niche stating how sad he was because he forgot to put his ring back on when he got out of the shower before work. And then a little later on he sent me one stating that it’s bad enough being without me all day, but since he’s been wearing his ring it’s like he can look down and there I am with him all the time and it makes his day better, but today he hasn’t even had that. It’s just crazy how something so simple like a wooden ring can carry so much weight.

I don’t usually like to place much value in material things, but these really are different. They really are a part of something. A part of us, and you, and the craftsperson, and Chicago, and the tree, and the stones, and the Earth. They really are FULL circles.

It’s just really nice and comforting to feel the ‘warmth of wood’  (pretty sure I stole that from y’all somewhere along the way) and know that there are people out there who have respect for and honor their work and nature.”

Sales-wonder Allison collaborated with Suzie to design this beautiful natural diamond, patina’d silver and rich walnut ring. Niche’s is a simple and beautiful walnut band, to match.
