It has been my practice, in my years selling rings made of bourbon barrel staves, to make the default option Jack Daniels® barrel oak. Indeed, before other sellers began...ah... practicing the sincerest form of flattery, this was the only option available, anywhere. Over the years customers have contacted me seeking a ring made with their favorite brand of whiskey, and they have even gone so far as to contact distilleries and source their own staves (something I invite you to do, if you want a completely personalized ring, or if you have some reason to doubt the provenance of my stock). They have always been very accommodating and enthusiastic. As a result, I have amassed barrel wood from many distilleries including Woodford Reserve, Maker's Mark, Buffalo Trace, Jim Beam, Angel's Envy, The Macallan, and finally Pappy Van Winkle. For more information (and some pictures) about this stock, check out this blog post:

You will be required to indicate your preferred distillery in the "notes" section at checkout.

The metal is Tungsten Carbide. Not all Tungsten Carbide rings are the same! Tungsten and Carbon are elements that would naturally be a powder. They are combined at very high temperatures with binders to make an incredibly dense, nearly indestructible metal. The choice and quality of these extra elements are what sets this top quality, American made ring apart from its mass-produced-in-China counterparts. While it is possible to shatter a WedgeWoodTungsten Ring, it is not easy. 

Because Tungsten Carbide exhibits unparalleled scratch resistance, it is the most durable possible choice for a ring. Unless you routinely encounter industrial diamond abrasives, your ring will never scratch. It is 10x harder than gold and 5x harder than steel. It will also not bend or deform in any way. It has a significant heft, nearly the weight of solid pure gold.

The finish is permanent and will never corrode. The color is a rugged, dark gray. 

Comfort fit.

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 *****
****************************************************************************************************

Tungsten Carbide wood rings cannot be resized at all! Every ring is made to the exact size provided. An error in sizing will necessitate a completely new ring. Refunds and exchanges will not be possible.


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 only shipping option is Global Express. 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.
