Applewood with Peridot Birthstone Inlay – August Birthwood Ring
We’ve chosen applewood to represent the month of August. The apple tree is symbolic of strength, gentleness, abundance and giving. In woodworking applications, applewood is valued for its strength and fine grain.
We’ve paired our ring with luminous, almost glowing, crushed Peridot which is August’s birthstone. Peridot has a very long written history. Ancient Egyptian papyri record the mining of these stones as early as 1500 BC and associated it with the sun. In other mythological contexts, it is considered an aid to friendship and brings happiness to the wearer.
Applewood can be light or dark in tone–sometimes both. If you’d like a particular variant, let us know!
N. B. Keep in mind that as wood is a natural material, we cannot guarantee the color or grain.
Inlay: 2mm off center
