This material This material is made much like Damascus steel - layers of different grades of Ti are folded together and etched. Not with acid like steel and NOT anodized like other colored Ti or aluminum. With extreme heat.  This causes the titanium to form colored oxidized layers at different rates.

This coloration is more durable than anodized, but is expected to scratch and wear at the same rate as any other titanium ring.

This is the absolute highest grade Koa you will see. The wood for these rings have been selected for its old-grown, chatoyant figure. Koa is known for its "curl," and this is a CURLY piece. It is very difficult to capture in pictures. I was doing some research so that I could describe the effect. I will just quote from a top google result because I cannot improve on this description: 

"Chatoyancy is a property that is usually attributed to certain gems, the cats eye effect or shimmer which gives a senseof depth in the gem. This property can also be used to describe some of the more dramatic pieces of curly, tigerstripe and fiddleback Koa. This figuring gives the wood a three dimensional quality; and depending on from what angle one views the wood, it can take on several completely different characters."*

It is a uniquely Hawaiian wood, and is one of the most prized natural products from the islands. 

Comfort Fit.

All rings ship via USPS Priority (or Priority International) Small Flat Rate Box. 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:
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.
