This extraordinary wood hails from Laos. Unlike the wood traditionally associated with the term "ebony" (which is in fact just a general term that can refer to many species of dark woods), this wood is black with streaks of white or cream color. In most cases, this transition would indicate the heartwood and sapwood contrast. Not so here- white and black stripes and are all heartwood. 

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 a sandblasted finish, but polished and satin finishes are also available.

Before choosing this option, please see this page regarding the special nature of a sandblasted finish.

The ring is also a flat profile (vs. a domed profile), which can also be changed. Just add the details you like in the appropriate section at checkout. 

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

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
