Beetle kill pine is fascinating stuff, unless, I suppose, you live in a heavily affected area..... The proliferation of the Mountain Pine beetle has resulted in the loss of millions of acres of pine forest. While typically beetle infestation affects only old, weak trees, in recent years even healthy young pines have been destroyed by the epidemic. The blue staining is the remnant of a certain fungus carried by the beetle. The coloration does not affect the strength of the wood, and it is therefore fairly sought after. 

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. Just for full disclosure - the metal 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 finishes is also available. The ring is also a domed profile (vs. a flat profile), which can also be changed. Just add the details you like in the "note to wedgewoodrings" section at checkout. Engraving is not possible with Black Zirconium rings.

Sizing

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.

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
