If you are a bourbon fan and you haven't had Angel's Envy, you need to address that situation, posthaste.  

With some regularity my customers contact me, loving the idea of a ring lined with a bourbon barrel but not seeing their preferred distillery among my options..  Usually the company they seek is very helpful, and they can arrange to have a barrel stave sent to me for use in their ring.  Taking inspiration from their initiative, I contacted my favorite bourbon maker, Angel's Envy for a stave.  They were extremely accommodating! They sent me THREE staves, which were used to make their bourbon finished in port wine barrels. Just look at that color!  

Because of the kind of cut I need to make into this stave to feature that sherry stain, The maximum size I can make is size 11.

I have a few other barrel wood options including Jack Daniels, Woodford Reserve, Maker's Mark, and Buffalo Trace. For this ring, I would be willing to use the rare stock I have from The Macallan. Please see this blog post to see what I mean:

The outer portion of this ring is made of Cobalt - the most scratch resistant and shatterproof material I offer. Like titanium it is hypoallergenic and biocompatible. However, in many circumstances under which your Titanium ring might scratch, Cobalt will not. It is an alloy that is identical to Platinum in color, but it is an order of magnitude stronger. Cobalt offers nearly the scratch resistance of Tungsten Carbide, but unlike Tungsten, Cobalt will not shatter if dropped. 

The ring pictured is DEFAULT a satin finish, but a polished finishes is also available. The ring is also DEFAULT a flat profile (vs. a domed profile), which can also be changed. Just add the details you like in the "message to seller" section at checkout. 

This is the first Cobalt ring with a wood interior ever offered.

I highly recommend going to a jewelry counter to determine your size, even if you already know your size. "Do it yourself" ring sizing methods (string, etc.) should absolutely not be trusted. Be sure to be measured using the width you plan to order.

****PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE 100% SURE OF YOUR SIZE BEFORE ORDERING *****
****************************************************************************************************

Cobalt lined wood rings can be adjusted up or down about 1/4 size (by removing or adding finish to the interior). Every ring is made to the exact size provided. An error in sizing that exceeds the margin provided above will necessitate a completely new ring. REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE. BE 100% SURE OF YOUR ACCURATE AND CORRECT SIZE BEFORE ORDERING.


Each ring is given multiple coats of a hybrid epoxy finish, which is completely water-proof and soap proof. This protective coating is sanded up to 12,000 grit for an unbelievable, glass-like finish.

All rings ship via USPS Priority (or Priority International) Small Flat Rate Box. If you are outside the US and Canada, your shipping option is Global Express by default. Please read below for details. Insurance is mandatory for this ring, and included in the shipping charge. You pay what I pay for shipping, nothing more.

For customers outside the US:

Due to changes in USPS policy, international packages sent to countries other than Canada can no longer be tracked past the US border. Insurance claims are also not possible. Due to this change and for your protection, international customers outside of Canada will be required to pay for USPS Global Express shipping ($44.95), which in addition to guaranteeing arrival within 3-5 business days (excepting intervention from your country’s customs department), also can be tracked and insured. I wish I could offer a more economical solution, but cheaper options are too risky.

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates. It is against the law and I will not mark an item as a "gift" to avoid any fees.
