This wood ring is made with Redwood (aka Sequoia) burl, one of the most iconic woods in the US. It has the distinction of being the largest burl in the world, which is hardly surprising given the size of the tree! This tree can live for thousands of years- the oldest living tree being the General Sherman in the Sequoia National Park, estimated 2300-2700 years old. This wood has been thoroughly stabilized. THIS STOCK IS FROM NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. IT IS NOT CHINESE METASEQUOIA. 

The inner portion of this ring is made of 14k yellow gold.  18k is also an option, and will be +$300. Message for details.

Gold, while beautiful, has disadvantages when compared to modern jewelry materials like cobalt, zirconium, tungsten, and titanium.  

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. 

Comfort fit.


NOTE ON WIDTH:

The minimum width for this style of ring is 4mm. The maximum is 8mm.
Recommended width is calculated in this way: Size 5 is 5mm wide. Width increases .5mm per full size above that. 

These rings will have a 1mm gold flank to either side of the wood.

So:

Size 5- 5mm - 3mm wood stripe
Size 7- 6mm - 4mm wood stripe
Size 9- 7mm - 5mm wood stripe
Size 10- 7.5mm - 5.5mm wood stripe
Size 11+- 8mm - 6mm wood stripe
