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 first piece I used in this listing piece was carbon dated and found to be around 2,840 years old +/-50 years. This is the lighter colored wood. This wood gets darker the longer it sits in the bog. Some of my stock is 5400+ years old, and thus darker.

This ring features a single 2 point diamond inlay. 

There are a wide variety of stones available: Garnet, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Emerald, Alexandrite, Ruby, Peridot, Sapphire, Pink Sapphire, Topaz, and Blue Zircon. All stones besides the diamond are synthetic. Price remains the same regardless of stone choice. Why? At these sizes, stone cost is not nearly as large a factor as labor!

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.The ring pictured is a satin finish, but a polished finish is also available. The ring is also a flat profile (vs. a 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 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
