Bog Oak, also known as Mora/Morta is an exceedingly rare wood that is created by coincidence and nature over thousands of years in acidic peat bogs.  After a tree falls into a bog with perfect conditions for preservation, it begins the process of fossilization.  Complete fossilization would take millions of years, and this wood represents only the earliest stages.  Because of its density and unique coloration, this wood is highly sought out by makers of smaller wood products, such as tobacco pipes.

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 polished finish (default), but a satin finish 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 "message to seller" 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 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
