Banksia is a tree that grows in Southwestern Australia.  The seed pod of the tree is somewhat like a pinecone in size, shape, and composition.  For woodworking applications, the various voids where the seeds used to reside are commonly stabilized with acrylic.  Stabilization is a massively underrated and important part of woodworking, especially in the world of small wood turnings.  For this ring, which is available in green, blue, and grey acrylic, I have leveraged one of the foremost wood stabilizing experts in the world to create this beautiful, multi-dimensional, shimmering acrylic fill.  You will not find a better quality banksia anywhere. 


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 greyThe 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
