This is a more traditional "twisted" pattern damascus steel. This deeply etched and dramatically colored piece of folded steel is handmade, one-by-one for me by an artist in Denver, CO. They are so labor intensive, that I will be limited to a total of 4 custom orders per month. Unfortunately, engraving is NOT possible with this ring.

This wooden ring is inlaid with the absolute highest grade Koa you will see. It has a gorgeous deep golden color and unbelievable curl. Koa is known for its "curl," and this is a CURLY piece. This property is a mark of its quality, as only old growth, 80+ year old material is used in this design. It can be difficult to capture in pictures. I was doing some research so that I could describe the effect. I will just quote from a top google result because I cannot improve on this description: 

"Chatoyancy is a property that is usually attributed to certain gems, the cats eye effect or shimmer which gives a sense of depth in the gem. This property can also be used to describe some of the more dramatic pieces of curly, tigerstripe and fiddleback Koa. This figuring gives the wood a three dimensional quality; and depending on from what angle one views the wood, it can take on several completely different characters."*

It is a uniquely Hawaiian wood, and is one of the most prized natural products from the islands.
