I'm not normally one for stabilized wood, as they are typically way overpriced, and I have my own techniques for stabilization when it is necessary. This general aversion usually goes double for COLOR stabilized woods (gilding gold, painting the lily, etc.).  That being said, this black ash burl, which has been vacuum stabilized with a blue acrylic, is absolutely gorgeous. It has a beautiful range of blue colors and a depth that is hard to capture in pictures. It is also extremely easy to work with. I dub thee "blue ash burl."

The metal in this listing is Black Zirconium-- Zirconium that is heat treated until it attains a very hard, durable black coating. The naturally silver colored metal is placed in a kiln at very high temperatures until the extreme heat causes oxidization. The oxidization layer is as hard as sapphire. Just for full disclosure - the ring really is a very dark grey. I just don't want anyone to be disappointed.

The ring pictured is a satin finish, but a polished finish is also available. The ring is also a beveled profile (vs. a flat or domed profile), which can also be changed. Just add the details you like in the "message to seller" section at checkout. Unfortunately, engraving is NOT possible with this ring.

Sizing

I highly recommend going to a jewelry counter to determine your size, even if you believe 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.


NOTE ON WIDTH:
The minimum width for this style is 5mm. The maximum is 8mm.
Recommended width is calculated in this way: Size 5 is 5mm wide. Width increases .5mm per size above that. So:

Size 5- 5mm
Size 6- 5.5mm
Size 7- 6mm
Size 8- 6.5mm
Size 9- 7mm
Size 10- 7.5mm
Size 11+ - 8mm
