Sacred Symbolism in Natural Materials

While we offer designs on the website that we find people respond well to, we are often commissioned to create rings that are very specific to the people we make them for. Creating custom rings has yielded some beautiful results that we are proud to send as wedding rings, engagement rings, anniversary rings, and promise rings. These are obviously very significant occasions that people mark with the exchange of rings. We are happy to be a part of this creation process, as we work with customers to finalize the specifics of designs, while the customer sometimes gathers the wood or other materials like sand and stone, to incorporate into the ring.

The materials that we put around our finger should resonate with us. As wood holds within it its past life, the energy it took to grow is still present within its every fiber. And the wood ring wrapped around your finger is representing that energy and that growth. 

They can symbolize the importance of place:
african turquoise

Wood from Uganda and Paraguay
ring
Stones and Seashells from Guernsey Island near France

The design can hold spiritual significance:
bog set
Sand inlaid in the sign of the cross.

The design can symbolize the past, present, and future:
pennie for your thoughts
Copper penny inlaid in supplied wood.

If interested in commissioning your own set of rings, please email us at craftsman@simplywoodrings.com. Please keep in mind that it takes a little more time to put together the design, gather the materials, and create the rings with the utmost care and attention. simplywoodrings.com
