Strength in Nature
What makes mens wood rings strong?
The beauty of a wood ring is it can be both strong and refined. We often are asked if wood rings are for men or for women? We really like that question because it allows the person to grow with us in the understanding of what wood rings can be. The strength from both feminine and masculine energies can be represented in the wooden ring. A wood like Oak paired with Elm carries both to make a truly unique wood ring. So the simple answer is a Simply Wood Ring can be what you make it.

This selection of rings is loosely suggested for men. The rings on this page are more masculine in appearance and feature wider ring widths. These are also simplified versions of some of our engagement styles. Simply Wood Rings handcrafts wooden wedding and engagement rings, in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, from salvaged wood and other sustainable materials. Our rings are designed by an artist who cares about the environment, made and supported by other creatives who care so much about what they do. It’s our mission to source materials and do business in an ethical manner in every way we can, like using lumber sourced from Horigan Urban Forestry, and using a green hosting service for our website. We would be doing our clients a disservice to claim our work is as durable as traditional metal rings, but we can say that our wooden rings are much stronger than you might think, especially compared to rings made by traditional methods of wooden ring construction. Breaking and splintering rings are not common when properly maintained.Because our rings are made of an organic material–something that once lived and breathed as a tree–they do request a special kind of awareness. They require more maintenance than a conventional ring, but far less than, say, a houseplant.
