This wooden ring has a 1mm offset sterling silver inlay. 

This is a VERY nice, exhibition grade piece of desert ironwood burl. This piece leans toward the golden, brown, and orange hues of the range of colors in AZ Desert Ironwood. It has the depth and chatoyancy of a cat's eye gem. It is, of course, amazingly strong and heavy. I heard it is one of the hardest and densest woods in the world. Accustomed to working with Ebony, and Lignum Vitae, I expected to be unimpressed. Only upon getting some cutoffs and putting drill to it did I realize just how worthy of the name "ironwood" this material is. It is nearly 20% more dense than Gabon Ebony (1.2 specific gravity as opposed to 1.03- it will sink in water). It is one of the rarest (it grows only in the Sonoran Desert) and oldest species of wood that still lives

Because the stripe of wood is so narrow, only the highest quality, most figured material is selected.

Unlike the other styles of rings in this shop, "channel" type rings will always have a seam in the wood. It MAY be visible, but certainly hard to detect 9 inches or so away, and completely invisible at any distance. I have made no effort to hide the seam in these pictures. If you have difficulty finding it, it is because it is subtle.

This ring is flanked by 6al-4v grade 5 titanium, preferred among jewelers. 

Sizing

Titanium ring sizes run from 4 to 16 including quarter sizes. 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". 

PLEASE READ THIS NOTE ON WIDTH

This ring can only be made in ONE width:

1mm Ti - 1mm sterling silver- 1mm Ti - 2mm wood channel - 1mm Ti

No other ring width/channel widths will be considered!
